Hello everyone, Tammy here from One More Time Events back to share another quick and easy project. Can you believe Christmas is already upon us.

I am pretty sure you all have already decorated your Christmas tree. But if you are looking to replace your tree topper, or maybe for next year.

Once the star was dry using a hot glue I placed the sprigs around the star and hot glue them in place.

The round ornament was embellish on both sides. Not wanting to waste the faux crystals which were on both sides of the circle Christmas ornament, I removed them from the back side of the ornament.

I then embellished the front of the star at the points of the Christmas Star. Once that was done I took the ornament and centered it on top and hot glued it in place.
