Glittered Tree Topper Craft


Top your tree this year with a beautiful glittered-ball pick -- an easy handmade embellishment.


  • Glittered Styrofoam balls
  • 16-gauge wire
  • White floral tape
  • Hot-glue gun and hot-glue sticks
  • Assorted ornaments


  1. Step 1

    Make glittered Styrofoam balls by completing steps 1 to 3 of the Glitter Ball Garland craft process.

  2. Step 2

    Wrap 2 lengths of 16-gauge wire together with floral tape. Stick this set of wrapped wires halfway into glittered Styrofoam ball or use hot glue to attach to an ornament. Repeat to make several festive picks.

  3. Step 3

    Arrange picks at the top of the tree for a tree topper or in a vase for a decorative holiday arrangement.

    I have been picking up all different pics for my red/white theme for next year (over the last two years). However, I was going to use mine in a vase, but after sticking ones in my tree this year, I am not so sure I want to waste them in a vase, maybe a tree topper like this would be very interesting. I really like.

    Where exactly are the ornaments that are used? I've looked at both Macy's and Grandin Road and none of these ornaments are to be found at either store.

    This is really fun, but are their eco-friendly alternatives to the styrofoam balls? Styrofoam is so ecologically irresponsible.
