Craft store DIY Christmas tree topper
We needed a new tree topper this year. The metal star we had didn’t make it though last years packing and was a little too mangled to be resuscitated.I looked and looked, but just couldn’t find anything that I liked.
I thought it was a good time to peek around the craft store and find out what I could make for a DIY Christmas tree topper. I wanted to think outside of the box a little bit too.
I ended up finding a wood cut out of the letter “O”,glitter, a Merry Christmas wood cut out,white paint and some faux dogwood blooms, and a spray of glittered sage leaves, from the fake plant aisle. I also found a pretty nest floral pick for some bling at Michaels.
I painted the letter O in white craft paint and let it dry.
Then I glittered the Merry Christmas woodcut and let that dry.
Once both pieces were dry I glued them together and started on adding the florals.I found this beautiful faux dogwood that I thought would add nice touch.
I used hot glue and started clipping individual leaves off of my sage and started gluing them around the edge, filling in. I decided to make both sides go up instead of a circular pattern. It’s more like a laurel wreath.
I added this pretty,sparkly floral pick at the end and used a wire and a embroidery hoop to help it stand on the tree top.
I like that it’s not one solid piece and the lights shine through the top.I think the cost was about $16, but I did get everything at 40% off.It was nice to have something pretty and natural looking.
I am getting the house together for the holidays! The big,annual holiday house walk is in just a few weeks!!!
Your topper turned out so pretty. Looking forward to seeing your tree and holiday home.
Oh how beautiful! What a great idea too. Now you have my creative juices flowing!
