2012 was our first year having a tall Christmas tree in the house. We had gotten the tree from my mother-in-law and I had very few ornaments and no tree topper. A trip to Hobby Lobby solved this. I didn't like any of the pre-made toppers they had so I decided to make my own on the fly. I pretty much just grabbed some Christmas floral type decorations and hoped for the best. I think it turned out well.
