So I am starting to puzzle out a solution for our Christmas remount of Nutcracker... the play... because that is a thing.

Anyway, the set is pretty simple it is a revolving staircase with a tree in the middle. As it revolves the tree gets bigger. (this is the easy bit I know how to deal with)

the challenge is once the tree has revolved the director wants a 3' tall child to wrap a red ribbon around the 12' tree and look like

what actually happens is the ribbon drops in a straight line down the tree and then wraps in a flat circle around the bottom illustrated here

I think I tried about 10 different things last time with vary little success. I figured I should start thinking of possible new ideas before we start getting into meetings so that maybe I have some solutions or alternative ideas.

I do have a fly line about 11" either US or DS of the tree if this help you in thinking of a solution.
