One year we had a tree that had two branches at the top so we put on a star and an angel for the toppers.

The star had lights, so when we turned out the livingroom lights to see the tree, the lights at the top were way over on the left side of the tree. Completely crooked to the nice triangluar shape of the tree.  Looked so funny!

My mom wanted a highland dancer tree topper (since my brother, sister and I are highland dancers). Last Christmas she got a cheap angel tree topper and I removed the wings and gave her a tartan sash, so now she's a highland dancer. I wish I had a picture Smiley

My boyfriend and I aren't religious either, but I wanted to make some stockings for us for the holidays (we live 1000 miles away from our parents, so we always go home that time of year). So I took a winter design, snowflakes and icicles.
I've got pictures here. It started with a vogue pattern, but didn't end up that way at the end.

They look better in person, they sorta look like paper in the pictures, but they're silk! (at least the outside)

The wal-mart craft section has 'angel blanks'- plastic cones you staple together that fit over the top of the tree. You could use the base and attach whatever you decide to make to the top of it, making it easier to put on the tree.


When I saw this I was like OMG, You could make a tree to stick on your tree!

I think it would be awesome, but then, I have a strange sense on humour.

Well if you're going to put a Barbie as the topper, why not put 3 up there and pose them in the classic Charlie's Angels pose?

Now that's what I call an angel tree topper!

My husband and I aren't religious, so angels don't really appeal to us. 

wait, what?  you're not religious but you have a christmas tree? ...  lol.

http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/cr_occasions_december/article/0,1789,HGTV_3270_2401036,00.html

and had a few biggish ones left over (got kinda over experimenty) so i turned the biggish one into a tree topper.

well, i went for super non-traditional this year.  ahaha. tacky toys, tinsel, and to top it all off, a skeleton pirate bank.

yeah. banks would make good toppers, you could probably find a more appropriate one...i know this is tacky, its intentional. ha

My mom put the giant 12 inch santa pez dispenser on our tree last year. But she's a collector, so...
