It was so nice to come home from Thanksgiving to a house decorated for Christmas. Since I knew I would be helping put up my grandmother's tree and my mom's, I decorated our house before we left. I probably get the most questions every year about my Christmas tree topper. It is normal looking to us since it has looked like this the last 7 years but I guess it could look strange to others. Haha I just wanted something different than a big bow or traditional star. There is nothing wrong with those looks, I was just looking for something different.
I started with a glittered "Merry Christmas" and just stuck it on the front. Then I put two red glitter-y picks on top.
Next, I stuck in three green glitter-y picks.
Cody thinks these look alien-ish. ;)
My favorite part are the feathers. I bought several different sizes at Hobby Lobby all half off.
I started with the largest ones and then worked down to the smallest ones. I just stuck them in randomly.
That's it! Pretty simple. You could probably find very similar pieces at Hobby Lobby or a local decorating store that sells Christmas decorations.
My original goal this year was to put this smaller tree in the dining room with our personal ornaments on it and put our bigger tree in the living room. Once I was finished with this tree though, I was done! haha Maybe next year we will have two trees. :) I really like it in our dining room though. Please ignore the towel under the urn. :) What do you use as a topper on your tree?
