Last year, our traditional angel Christmas tree topper broke, so inspired by this thread http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=137863.0 I decided to make a star.  I wanted one that lit up, though, so instead of cardboard I decided to make a wire armature.  This how it turned out.


Tonight, my mom and I decided to do a little mother/daughter crafting, so we made more! One for her classroom and one for our second tree.
Here's the one I made

Too cute!  I might have to make one of these for my tree this year.  I wonder if I have enough buttons.
