Easy Christmas Crafts: Wired Ribbon Icicle Ornament


For this Easy Christmas Crafts Wired Ribbon Icicle Ornament, a short length of wired ribbon and a piece of thread make these ornaments quick and easy from start to finish. Shiny silver or gold wired ribbon adds a bit of sparkle to a Christmas tree in the form of these easy to make icicle ornaments.

Take a look at several of the finished Easy Christmas Crafts Wired Ribbon Icicle Ornaments.

The Easy Christmas Crafts Wired Ribbon Icicle Ornament is fast and easy to make. Using one type of ribbon would add a beautiful consistency among other decorations on the Christmas tree. On the other hand, several different colors of ribbon would add a pretty contrast placed here and there to reflect against other decorations.

Easy Christmas Crafts: Wired Ribbon Icicle Ornament Materials and Tools:

  • Wired Ribbon 10 inches long by 1/4 to 1/2 inch wide
  • Thread 10 inches long
  • Ruler to measure ribbon and yarn  
  • Scissors to cut the ribbon and yarn
  • Pencil or other round object 

Take a look at the simple materials and tools shown here.

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Christmas Crafts: Wired Ribbon Icicle Ornament:

Measure and cut the ribbon to 10 inches in length. Use longer ribbon if you would like longer icicle ornaments.

The narrow ribbons kept their shape better than the wider ribbons. Larger ribbons could also be used provided their wire edges are strong enough to maintain the spiral when hung on the Christmas tree.

Wired Ribbon Icicles Ornament Step 1 cut ribbon

Wrap the wired ribbon around the pencil. A larger round object would be needed for ribbon wider than 1/2 inch.

Remove the wired ribbon spiral by gently sliding it off the end of the pencil.

Measure and cut 10 inches of thread for the Easy Christmas Crafts Wired Ribbon Icicle Ornament's hanging loop.

Tie a knot in the thread ends to form a loop.

Fold one end of the wired ribbon over the thread. Make two folds to hold the thread loop securely.

At the opposite end of the wired ribbon spiral, trim the end of the wired ribbon at a 45 degree angle. This removes any loose bits of ribbon that frayed while forming the Easy Christmas Crafts Wired Ribbon Icicle Ornament.

Simple, easy and fast, the Easy Christmas Crafts Wired Ribbon Icicle Ornament is now finished. If the wired ribbon spiral gets pulled out of shape, just wrap the wired ribbon around a pencil again to reform the icicle ornament.
