Our Best Handmade Toppers for Every Kind of Christmas Tree
The final touch to any Christmas tree is, of course, the topper. You can make your tree a showstopper with this one decoration alone. And when it's in combination with all of your other décor, the effect can be quite dazzling. We think the best Christmas tree toppers are an extension of a tree's overall theme. For example, a Christmas tree with pastel colors would looked absolutely perfect with a pastel candy cane tree topper. To make things even sweeter, sugared gumdrops are used for the center of this topper. Do you have a white frosted tree or lots of white and silver ornaments? Try topping your tree with our white glittered star tree topper.
What goes into creating the right topper for your Christmas tree? First, you want to consider the look you're hoping to achieve overall. Second, think about the color scheme you plan to work in. The topper should complement the tree both in terms of theme and color palette. Once you know how you plan to decorate your Christmas tree overall, you can use elements from the rest of your trimming to inspire your topper. Or, you can even use some of the same decorative elements in your topper that you used in your tree. What do we mean? Our beach-themed Christmas tree features driftwood and sea glass ornaments. To top the tree, we made a star topper out of driftwood and seashells. The Christmas tree topper really brings the look together.
We have inspiration for every kind of Christmas tree. Take a look at these Christmas tree toppers to get some ideas for your own tree. Your family and guests will be blown away with these showstopping toppers.
