Default How to make this holly ribbon sculpture? Help!

I'm usually pretty good at figuring out how to make most of the ribbon sculptures, but this one is killing me! I've tried several times today and can't get it. I don't know if the maker of this sculpture and website is on here or not. If you are, I love your holly! It's beautiful. Anybody know how to make it? TIA, Adrienne

IDK if this will make sense or not, but- it looks like a pinched korked strip. KWIM... not sure how it's secured, but that's what it is (in my mind's eye).

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.
