Golden Star Tree Topper

Top your tree with this glistening golden burst of... clothespins!

What You Need:

  • Pack of Clothespins from the .99 cents store
  • Hot glue gun
  • Plastic candy cane container or other 1 inch tube with one closed end.
  • Gold spray paint
  • Scissors to cut bottom 3.5 inches off of candy cane or tube.

  1. Undo clothes pins and glue each pair back to back.
  2. Glue approximately 30 pairs together.  They will naturally form a round.

3.  Cut the bottom 3.5 inches of your plastic candy cane off with scissors and glue to the back of the star.

4.  Spray paint gold or leave au natural.  I tried gold leafing it but I think the spray paint is easier and gives it a more even coat.
