Ribbon Candy Ornaments
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

This fun-to-fold ribbon candy decoration really dresses up a tree or a window. Arrange several in a small box, and you've got a great gift package to send to a long-distance relative or family friend.

What you'll need

  • 17 inches of 1 1/2-inch-wide wire ribbon (striped or solid colors work well)
  • 16 inches of clear fishing line or decorative thread
  • Needle
  • Pencil

How to make it

  1. For each ornament, fold down 1/4 inch at each end of the ribbon, then accordion-fold the ribbon in 1 3/4-inch sections.

  2. Ribbon Candy Ornaments - Step 2

    Knot one end of the fishing line and thread the other through the needle. Push the needle up through the bottom of the folded ribbon pile and return the needle 1/4 inch away from the original hole as shown. Knot the line at the bottom.

  3. Pull the line from the top until the ribbon sandwich is about 1 1/2 inch thick and the two bottom knots are taut. Knot the line on top, so that a loop is left for hanging. Now use a pencil or your finger to round out the side folds.
