Last week, I was really excited to begin decorating for the holidays, and then super disappointed when I found that the Christmas tree topper I made last year was in shambles. Almost completely destroyed and crushed from our move. Recover and conquer mode kicks in. I had to make a new one!
I must say this time around it was much easier to make and turned out even prettier. Again, I only used materials from around my house and yard plus a few purchases from Dollar Tree, such as the eucalyptus leaves and gold dusted pine cones.
For the frame, I used an old lamp shade that I had in my garage. It worked so perfectly and is a strong, sturdy surface for all the goodies surrounding it. No more crushed tree toppers in my future.
Happy holidays everyone. What fun and crafty adventures do you have in the works?
