CREATING A TREE TOPPER THAT WOWS
QUICK TREE TOPPER TIPS
It doesn’t take a ton of different items to create a great topper, so stick to the essentials. Brian’s 3 must haves? Ribbon, Florals, and Shatterproof Ornaments.
When placings florals, always make sure to shape and fluff them. They’ll look better and fill your tree much more quickly. As Brian says, “show ’em who’s boss!”
Forget the perfectly-tied bow…just loop your ribbon a few times and cinch it in the middle with a pipe cleaner. Once you jab and stick it into your tree, no one will be able to tell that it isn’t a traditionally tied bow.
Create depth by placing shatterproof ornaments near the base of the tree…they’ll subtly shine against your trees lights.
ADDING A TREE BASE
QUICK TREE BASING TIPS
Work from the inside out…adding ornaments near the base of your tree will create depth and fill pocket holes.
Make clusters by tying together ornaments. Spread them evenly throughout your tree to create focal points.
Large flat items likes snowflakes are great to items to place inside your tree; they’re an easy shape to understand and really pop!
You can never have to many berry stems. Stick them in deep! Follow the shape of the branch or place them in the pockets of your tree.
ADDING THE FINAL LAYER
QUICK FINISHING TOUCHES TIPS
Use the 1, 2, 3 rule. 1 theme, 2 colors, and 3 shapes (round, flat or cookie, and long or jabby-stabbies).
