Default Re: How to make this holly ribbon sculpture? Help!

Make sense? HTH! MK
Agreed. It could be a piece of korker that was turned, twisted and then glued together at the bottom. The curl in the korker + starch/stiffener would be what gives it that shape.

Also, try taking just a length of plain ribbon and twisting it into shape. The ribbon will bend because it's being twisted that way. Spray with stiffener.

Let us know what works for you.
