Yes, you read that right...a tree topper for only $2.00!!
I needed a topper for our red and gold tree in the sunroom/mudroom
but didn't want to pay out the nose for something that I might change up
the color scheme next year soooo, off to the Dollar Tree.
I was actually looking for items for a different project but
when I saw these stars, I knew exactly what I was going to
do with them. Pick up two identical stars. Mine are 3-D
and glittered to the max.
Make sure your glue gun is plugged in and hot and then
quickly run a strip of glue on each of the flat sides, then
stick your two stars together. Mine didn't want to stay
together at the corners, so I just worked with them one
at a time and squeezed a bit of hot glue inside the little
ducks beak and then pinched them together. Worked
like a charm!
I was going to leave one side unglued but didn't
want my stars popping apart when I tried stuffing
the topper on top of the tree. Instead, I tied the star
to the top with a piece of fishing line.
