DIY Christmas Tree Gift Toppers

December 6, 2012 | DIY

With Christmas looming, I’m sure there are more than a few gifts that need to be wrapped in the coming weeks! I had some sticks leftover from the wreath DIY last week, so put together these really cute little trees that make the perfect toppers for a gift, don’t you think?

You’ll need:
– A stick or two, not too thick
– Strong scissors
– A hot glue gun (or glue more suitable for wood if you have it)
– Regular craft glue
– Embroidery thread in any colours you choose

Step 1.
Using the scissors, cut your stick into smaller parts – 2 the same size, one slightly smaller, and a very small piece for the trunk. Lay them out to make sure the tree ratio is to your liking :)

Step 2.
If your stick still has some bark on it, I found that cutting it away in the areas I was going to glue helped the glue to stick better. If you have a better glue for wood than hot glue, feel free to use it instead. Place your sticks on a piece of scrap paper and, using the hot glue (very carefully!) stick the pieces of your tree together one-by-one and press tightly until they’re dried. Be very careful with your little trees, they’re quite fragile.

Step 3.
Once the glue is set, take the embroidery thread and glue one end to the tree (wherever you like) using the craft glue. Once it’s dried, wind the thread around the tree in any style you like. Once you’re happy with it, secure the end with craft glue.

Step 4.
Now all that’s left to do is to cut out a little star from cardboard, and glue it all to your package!

And as always, if you’d like to see more DIYs, feel free to head to the DIY Archive! :)
