This might be the easiest DIY possible. Seriously, I’m not sure it should be labeled do-it-yourself because it’s just. so. easy.
You’ll need a glue gun and three large ornaments. By looking at the pictures, I’m sure you can tell where this is going. Said ornaments look best if they consist of two coordinating colored stars and a matching glitter cone (each $1 at the Dollar Tree, of course).
If it helps, my only suggestion is to align the indent on the star…
with the bulge shape on the cone…
I think the two gold pieces together look like a tree topper. For $2, you can’t find a better price if you’re on the hunt for an inexpensive tree star!
I propped my red star up next to the gold pillar-ish star for color and dimension.
My new grouping balances out the nutcrackers I have on the other end of the mantel shelf.
See? I told you it was the easiest DIY-er possible!
