How to Make a Christmas Tree Topper
This is such a busy and hectic time of the year with all of the decorating, shopping and working to do; however, all the extra effort is worth it when you see your children’s eyes light up when they see the Christmas tree or when your home transforms into this warm and magical place to receive family and guests for the holidays. To help you out, I created a short video I want to share with you on how I make my tree toppers for my Christmas Trees.
I like to use an odd number of picks. I also like it better when I bend the tree topper down towards the tree to help your eye flow continuously up the tree. If you don’t have a lot of room due to ceiling height, move the tree topper down into the tree more and use longer picks on the base.
When packing up my tree at the end of Christmas season, I cut off the zip ties and store the picks flat.
So what type of tree topper do you put on your tree?
I hope this video was helpful to you, please let me know what you think by leaving me a comment below.
Thanks so much Julie for sharing your tree topper video. It reminded me of when I used to work with floral arrangements, silks & dried, and always working with odd numbers. So much fun. Using the zip-ties was great. Thanks again.
I’m laughing. I commented last year on the tree topper video and forgot about it and asked this year……………..senior moments galore! LOL Well my computer crashed too a couple of months ago and lost all these great bookmarks so I’m starting over. Thanks Julie!
Brilliant! I was looking for something different to do and inexpensive and this is perfect! Thanks soooo much for sharing your talents!
Thanks for the video on making a tree topper! It was very helpful! Thanks so much!
I love your methods. Great video!! Positive design technique!!! Thank you!
I can’t find the video for the how to make a designer tree topper that is show above. Can you direct me to where it is?
Hey Peggy – The video should be posted above in the article. You can also watch it here on YouTube: https://youtu.be/ki1eLxGIAQE
Really informative. You’re a great teacher ! I’m not the crafty type, so I enjoyed the very clear tutorial. Thanks
Great idea! Thank you for the video!
Great video! You make it look so easy. I hope I can make a beautiful topper to fill up my tree. Why you did not use floral wire? I have zip ties, but I thought they might make the topper too heavy.
I just couldn’t get it tight enough with wire.
The video was very helpful. I was in Hobby Lobby yesterday and saw all the pieces used here, and they were half price. I walked out of the store with nothing, simply bc I had no idea how to use them for a tree topper. Now I know, and will go back, buy and make a tree topper! Thanks!!
Very pretty! You made it look so easy. I’m going to use your technique this year!
I love this! Now I have a million ideas running through my head.
Our tree goes in a corner with sliding glass doors that open out to the pool area. The doors stack out of the way for a very open feeling. Therefore, the tree is seen all around. Would you recommend making a second topper to go on the opposite side?
Hey Dodie – Yes! Julie recommends making two matching bows to go at the top of the tree.
Thank you so much !! I love it very much and now I know how to create a tree topper . Thank you for sharing . 🤗
Thank you, very helpful
