I’ve been putting up my own Christmas Tree for nearly 10 years and I’ve never had a proper tree topper for it! That’s pretty bad isn’t it?! Especially for someone who loves putting up their tree. I’ve put all sorts of things on the top, but this Christmas there will be a proper star on top!
To make one of your own, follow this great tutorial over on twogirlsbeingcrafty. It took me about an hour to put together, including gluing the two sheets together.
I had to glue 2 sheets of glittery card together because the back was plain white. I tested with a scrap first to make sure it would bend nicely. The two sheets were glued together with a glue stick. Hot glue worked amazingly on the joins. I did find that the sheets peeled apart on some of the bends, but a dab of hot glue quickly fixed that. The bends make the perfect tunnel to slot the star onto the top of the tree.
I think these would make great tree decorations made half size, using 6 inch squares of paper.
I cant’ wait to put my tree up and test it out!
