So as mentioned in my post here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=218942.msg2356557#msg2356557 my boyfriend asked me to craft his entire Xmas tree (minus the tree) this year. I had a lot of ideas from ornaments, both in my head and from awesome fellow craftsters, but I was stuck on what to make for the tree-topper. He wanted a star but I wasn't sure how to make one that would be really special and nice looking, but still light up. Anyways, long story short, he's extremely into video games, especially old school nintendo, and so I came up with, and made this:

It's the tri-force from the Zelda games. I don't know much about those games to be honest, so I just went off what people told me. It lights up with colored lights behind the gold, but he didn't have an extension cord for the pictures, so you'll have to just imagine it all colorful and lit up Smiley.
