I combined a pretty cut star with glitter, ruffled crepe paper and rolled antique book pages to create this fun Christmas Tree topper- I think it would look great hanging on a door too!

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • ruffled crepe paper
  • Hot glue gun
  • Snowy glitter
  • Mod Podge
  • Mod Podge

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

Carefully remove desired number of book pages- I used 18 but you could do more or less depending on how tight you roll them. Roll them into cone shapes and hot glue in place.
When you have enough book page cones, brush outer ends inside and out with mod podge and sprinkle with snowy glitter. Repeat till they are all glittered, then arrange in a circle and glue together. I used a circle of cardboard on the back and glued them down to that as well as a dot of glue between each cone.
Shape ruffled crepe paper into a circle and glue on top of glittered cones.
Take your silver cardstock and cut the star and star shadow from the Folk Art Festival cartridge at desired size, mine is 6 inches. Glue star shadow on top of crepe paper. Take the other star and brush with mod podge, then sprinkle with silver glitter and allow to dry. Attach glittered star to the star shadow with hot glue.
Finally, if you are going to hang it on a door or wall, attach a loop of ribbon on the back with hot glue, or if you are making a tree topper, make another cone out of cardstock and cut to desired height then glue it onto the back of your star to top your tree. Enjoy your festive, glittery decoration!

Great idea. I made 2...added an additional cone for the tree topper. Then glued the circles back-to-back for an all around tree topper. Thanks
