A ribbon tree

In august I made invitations etc for a friend's daughter who got married...She had her ushers in welsh kilts and decorated the hall and bouquets with matching welsh ribbon...she gave me what was left to use for crafting and as there was so much I made her this ribbon tree as a keepsake...I usually make ribbon trees for Christmas decorations and i have made a couple that i will blog with a tutorial soon....
I loved how this one turned is about 10 inches tall and very easy to do.I started it using a polystyrene cone and just cut lengths of ribbon and attached them to the cone with pins...the double bow on the top has a beautiful diamante heart ribbon sider on each side which i got from meiflower crafts.
The new bride loved it too....
