DIY Rustic Star Christmas Tree Topper


Decorating your home for Christmas can get pricy pretty quickly with store bought decor. This project is easy, inexpensive, and a great way to add a DIY touch to your Christmas tree!


For this project, you'll need:

  • Scrap wood (roughly the size that you want your finished star to be)
  • Nails
  • Hammer
  • Wire (a thinner gauge is easier to work with, but a thicker gauge will fill in your star faster)
  • Wire cutters
  • Rust-Oleum Glitter Spray

Check out our handy step-by-step tutorial for instructions:

Step 1: Draw your star to use as a pattern

Step 2: Hammer in nails at each point of your star

Step 3: Start wrapping your wire

Step 4: Repeat your wrap

Step 5: Pull out your star point nails, and wrap wire around the corners to reinforce the star shape

Step 6: Wrap more! Loosely wrap lengths of wire around the center of the star to start giving it dimension

Step 7: Keep wrapping! Loosely wrap more wire around each 'leg' of your star

Step 8: Use Rust-Oleum Glitter Spray to give your star some shine. For best results, be sure to use proper spray painting techniques.

Step 9: Show off your beautiful new tree topper!
