DIY Twig Star Tree Topper

This DIY Twig Star Tree Topper is super easy to create!  It makes the perfect finishing touch to this rustic Christmas tree. 

This has quickly become one of my favorite Christmas decorations that has replaced our old angel tree topper and store bought star tree toppers that we used to have. It makes a great addition to the top of the tree!

This year I decided to host the Twelve Days of Christmas Crafts on Instagram and we had so much fun!!  We’ve made a ton of crafts to go along with my DIY Tree Collar and Holiday Ribbon Picks!  Be sure to check out the Sweater Ornament tutorial, Clay Farmhouse Ornaments or Wood Plank Tree Signs.

We also created this super fun Chewbacca holiday tree that you’ll want to check out! This decorative tree topper gives the tree a classic look.

Directions:

  1. Start by placing five twigs into a star shape.  Then glue the ends together.
  2. Layer more twigs over the original five, gluing the ends as you go.
  3. Wrap twine around the joints where the twigs meet.  Use hot glue to attach the twine, wrap around the joint and glue again to fasten.
  4. Coil a 12″ piece of wire into a spring shape.  Glue it to the bottom of the star.
  5. Place the twig star at the top of your tree.

Pro tip: use an old coat hanger for the wire used to attach the star to the tree. This makes it easier to place the star on the top branch of artificial trees or real trees.

Doesn’t this DIY twig star just add the perfect finishing touch to our rustic Christmas Tree?!  Be sure to check out our Holiday Home Tour for all of the home decor details this year!

Another pro tip?  Use twigs that have already been dried out.  If you use fresh branches they will shrink over time and your star may fall apart or become one of those heavy tree toppers that tend to fall over.
