I always struggle with what to use as a tree topper. In the past, I have used a bow, a glitter starburst, some red birds and a DIY driftwood starburst. This year I decided to mix it up once again with a DIY Driftwood Angel Tree Topper. It was super simple to make and is really precious!

What you need:

What you do:

Start by selecting 2 sticks to be your wings. I picked some that were thicker on one end and slightly curved, but you can do whatever you like, of course.

Attach the wings to the cone using your hot glue. I suggest holding them for about 60 seconds to be sure that they dry tightly.

Attach other sticks along the shape of the cone to create a dress-like shape. There is no right or wrong way. I snapped sticks by hand too get them the right length.

Materials

  • Assorted sticks or driftwood
  • Cardboard cone

Tools

  • Hot glue gun

Instructions

  1. Select 2 sticks to be your wings. You want pieces that are thicker on one end than the other, with a curve being ideal.
  2. Attach the wings to your cone with hot glue. Hold firmly in place until the glue has cooled - at least 60 seconds.
  3. Glue other sticks along the cone to form the skirt and body. Snap sticks if they are too long.
  4. Add a small nubby stick on top as the head.
  5. Place on top of your tree and enjoy.
