Look familiar? Yep, that's right...I used Kelly's fabulous tutorial on making a yarn wrapped star. I love it!! I could sit and wrap stars all day long, it almost therapeutic! The only change I made was to make it bigger and I left off the ribbon that would've hooked it onto the tree.
Next, I wrapped a small strand of white mini lights all around the star. I used ones with a white cord as to blend in with the color of the yarn.
Then I just nestled it into the tree and Voila! My very own tree topper...I think it looks pretty good and definitely costs a whole lot less then I would've spent on buying a new one!
Up close, the wires give it kind of a crazy look, but far away it glows so beautifully!
What's topping your Christmas tree this year?
