DIY Christmas Tree Topper With Template


I had been stewing over my inability to locate our starburst tree topper since moving, when I ran across this post at How About Orange complete with tutorial and all.
As soon as I saw it, I was reminded of my missing topper I got at Target a couple of years back, and knew this would be a wonderful replacement. Hello… it is DIY with PAPER, and I even figured out how to incorporate my beloved Cricut!! Jessica at How About Orange (if this is your first time to her wonderful site of inspiration galore, you are welcome) used a template to cut circles and the lines from the outer edge to the center. I decided to make a file I could cut out using Sure Cuts A lot and Cricut.

File available here:
I made my circles 6 inches each. You need 10 of them, as you see in Jessica’s tutorial. Other than the cricut and the circle size, I did mine just like she did. Then I stuck it on top of my tree and freed myself from the frustration of my missing starburst, while satisfying my DIY addiction. YAY!

This is a great alternative to a traditional topper. I can see it painted red or even covered in glitter. Nice idea!
