This tutorial for a DIY Christmas tree topper uses bows made out of deco mesh ribbon and a simple plastic cup as a base to make an easy, cute holiday decoration!
This year, we have a new Christmas tree for our playroom. Previously, I had used the same little white tree for years (it made it through three years of teaching and Emmie’s entire toddler stage…that’s saying something), but last year the lights quit fighting the good fight around the 23rd of December. We found the cutest little replacement a couple of months ago and couldn’t wait to give it its own style this Christmas!
We’ve always done the playroom tree in pink ornaments because, well…we only had a little girl. This year, it seemed like a change was in order. I had a set of red and green ornaments I had retired from the main tree that were just perfect for this one.
The only thing we didn’t have for this tree was a topper. I knew what I wanted, but y’all know me…if I can make it with things around my house (without it looking like a 6 year old made it in art class), I’m going to do it. So last week, I got crafty.
- 1 red plastic cup
- hot glue & gun
- 2 rolls 6″ deco mesh ribbon (different colors if desired)
- floral wire
- 8-10 matching pieces of floral stem
- 6-8 matching Christmas ornaments (varying sizes)
Merry Christmas, everyone!
