Christmas Tree Topper
- 1 white coffee filter
- 1 foil doily
- 1 small round plastic ornament
- 1 pointed plastic ornament
- glitter glue
- scalloped scissors
- hot glue gun
- 6-8 silver pipe cleaners
- 1 white paper plate
- Take the top piece off of the ornament so there is a hollow opening. Stick 4-5 pipe cleaners into the hole of the ornament. Use enough pipe cleaners so that the ornament is sturdy enough to stand up on its own.
- Twist a coffee filter into a flower. Twist the pipe cleaners from the ornament around the middle to hold the flower together.
- Wrap another pipe cleaner around the small round ornament.
- Cut a hole in the center of the doily. Slide the pipe cleaner on the ornament through the hole.
- Add few pieces of ribbon under the round ornament, if desired.
- Push that pipe cleaner through the middle of the coffee filter and twist the pipe cleaners together in the back.
- Trim the paper plate with scalloped scissors.
- Poke a hole through the middle of the paper plate and attach the flower to the plate by putting the pipe cleaners through the hole.
- Hot glue the coffee filter and pipe cleaners to the plate. The plate should make everything sturdy. Make sure to glue the top, bottom and back for maximum sturdiness.
- Glue another pipe cleaner to the back of the plate so that you have a loop to attach it to the top of the tree. Otherwise it will be top heavy and fall forward.
- Add glitter glue around the edges of the filter and plate. Let dry.
- Attach to the Christmas tree by slipping the top of the tree through the back pipe
cleaner loop and wrapping the extra pipe cleaners around the tree to hold the topper in place.
