DIY Tree Topper





As we were decorating our Christmas tree, we found that something was 
missing, oh yes, a tree topper!

And so we went on the hunt for a tree topper. Sadly, we didn't find the one.
You know the one that makes you go.. Oh my.. that's the one I want!

Then the light switch went on; i'll just make my own.
My inspiration came from fallen lonely twigs.

I decided to make them beautiful and give them a place in my home; 
the Christmas tree!



Here it is
DIY Tree Topper

Things you will need
twigs
hot glue gun
jute (optional)


Step 1
Arrange your twigs to make a star shape



Step 2
Hot glue all the ends together and middle parts too




Step 3
(This step is optional) I wanted to add some detail and so 
I wrapped the ends with jute






Step 4
I wanted my star to have lights and so I used
Mini Lights (50 count)
Gold Metallic Spray Paint


Step 5
Spray paint your lights
Quick tip: make sure to not spray paint the actual light bulb


Step 6
Wrap the the lights around the star.
I used floral wire and also spray painted it the same gold color as the star.
I followed the lights along the natural lines of the star (front and back).


Here are the final results!

I hope you enjoyed this DIY

Thanks for Visiting :)
