No matter how tall or short your Christmas tree is, this topper will be just the right finishing touch-and it'll last for many Christmases to come.

  • Pearl beads, 1/8 to 1/2 inch in diameter

  • Eight 4-inch head pins

  • Mounting tape

  • 2 cabochons

  • 16-gauge covered floral wire


  1. Beginning with the smallest bead and continuing in ascending order, string a few beads onto a pin. Repeat for each pin, making sure the pins are adorned with an equal amount of beads.

  2. Use the mounting tape to attach all 8 pins to the back of a cabochon. Trim the ends of the pins, if needed. Cut a 9-inch piece of floral wire and attach it to the back. Place another cabochon, also backed with a piece of mounting tape, on top of the pins. Press firmly to ensure the cabochons are sticking together, and use wire to attach at the top of the tree.
