My family at home is into sailing, so one year we put a model ship someone had given us on the top.  It actually looked cool.  We have also been known to put a "Wimpy" doll (from Popeye) on top, because sadly, our last name sounds like "wimpy." Undecided

This may sound sacreligious, but to be sort of multi-religious (like us) my boyfriend and I put a menorah on the top of our tree last year  Cheesy  It had to be reaaallly stable, with wires and what-not, so as not to catch fire.  Watch out!

Yeah. Im in that poor college student phase RIGHT NOW! Last year my room mates and I cut a star out of an old paper grocery sack and stapeled it together. It looked like one of those star hanging paper lanterns. I dug it. It completed the ensemble I think! This year I live by myself and my mother and I splurged... we went to Dollar General and picked out the tackiest most obnoxious star with lights that flash. Its great. I shall take a picture and post it on here eventually.

I have Satan [a la Tim Curry] clinging to the top of my tree. I'm not religious, that doesn't mean you can't have a xmas tree! The idea was stolen from those wacky "hethans" anyway.

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

I love it!   Tacky or not, that is a way fun, and cool, tree!  ^_^

I can do personal swaps!  ^_^

I bought an old Bing Crosby record at the thrift store and carefully cut out his picture.  Put a toilet paper roll on the back with some duct tape and voila - an old school tree topper.

That Bing Tree Topper is fabulous!  And it's such a simple, but genius, idea to attach him to a toilet paper tube.  Cheesy
