DIY Paper Tree Topper

Never let the glitter paper go waste again by making this DIY paper tree topper. It’s a fun project which you can undertake with your kids.

Let’s create a fun 3-D star and use it as a tree topper. If your mini Christmas tree doesn’t really have anything as of yet, it’s a cute way to decorate it. It even looks great hanging on the wall or mirror.

What you will need

  • Glittered paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
    Hot glue gun (and sticks)

What to do

Take your pencil and trace out two large and long shaped diamonds. Then trace out the four smaller ones. Cut our your diamonds and fold each diamond in half to create a crease in the center (so the diamonds pop out a little). Cross diamond A over diamond B, so it creates a cross. Add some hot glue to the bottom of diamond B so it will stay put. Then add a small drop of hot glue to the tip of diamond C and place to the center-left. Repeat with diamonds D, E, and F until the center is complete (We created a little guide to help you visualize the sizes and where to fold).

This is such a simple project, and the end product is so pretty. Anyone can’t really tell it’s paper when they look at it – that will be our little secret!
