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 together create a fun 3-D star and use it as a tree topper. If your mini Christmas tree is feeling alone and it doesn’t really have anything as of yet. So I think it’s a cute way to decorate it with a 3-D star. It even looks great on the Christmas tree or hanging on the wall or mirror.
What you will need
- Glittered paper
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 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 it 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 in the end, if you get such a beautiful product that is so pretty as a result. I think I have worth the time which I have invested as a by-product. Anyone can’t really tell it’s made up of paper when they look at it as its appearance doesn’t depict its reality – that will be our little secret!
I want to know your views as well. So, What do you think about this DIY? Do you love glitter? Do share your thoughts!
