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.
Directions:


  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.
