Holiday Gift: Tree Topper

So, using House Revival's tutorial for woven stars, I made my friends B&M a tree topper for their holiday tree this weekend.

I dug out a small hole on my craft table, busted out strips of paper and wove.  And painted.  And glittered.  Oh, how I glittered.  Even my poor dog got glittered.

Plan one had been to do three stars in varying sizes.  I rejected that after I realized how enormous the topper would end up being.   Although after I saw it on the tree, I kind of regretted not going with the two larger, rather than the two smaller stars.

I ended up with a teal metallic paint for the medium star and orange glitter for the smaller star.

Silver and blue
Blue and orange.
On the tree!

Upskirt shot!  And shows how poofy the stars ended up being.

  1. Gorgeous! I'm so glad the tutorial was understandable! Love all the glitter -- my husband finally put his foot down and outlawed glitter from our house a couple of weeks ago. So, I went out and bought some glitter glue, bur haven't had a chance to try it, yet :)

  2. Thank you so much! I feel in love with them after seeing your tutorial and have been obsessively making them. Playing with different paper widths and weight. So much fun!

    I'm a fairly messy crafter as it is, and glitter has just taken it to a whole new level. It's like a trail of pixie dust following me.

  3. No mention on who came through with glitter at the last moment. hmm...

  4. Totally adorable! Definitely going to make one for next year's tree!
