Thanks, y'all! 

Well I just had to Rock this one, what a fabulous idea.  That's amazing fabric you found.

The fabric is from Ikea, so I am probably far from the first to do something like this.  The version they show on their website now has GLOW IN THE DARK SNOW on the branches!

I realised the moment I'd submitted the post... and went in to edit my post, and in the meantime you beat me to it!  Sorry! 

I like unusual tree toppers be they big foot (or king kong  Grin).  A few years ago we had one of the powerpuff girls as our tree topper!

You always do the funnest crafts! (And yes, I know "funnest" isn't strictly a word, but it works here.) Happy Christmas! Smiley

Ha! I've had a Barbie atop my tree, too.  I figure it's my tree and what I put on it is wonderful. Wink

Thanks!  Hey, if you can say it, spell it, and it has meaning then it's a word.  Jolly holidays to you!

That's so awesome. The kids and I have a debate over the tree almost every year. We don't want a fake one because ew plastic-offgassing-lead-leaching-factory-produced-made-in-china crap, lol, but one of mine is not down with the cutting of a tree every year so... what's a girl to do? This year we have all the decorations strung up on yarn across the doorways and while it's perfectly fine I still miss the traditional tree. I'm going to look for or make fabric like this but I'd better build a collapsible frame because there's nowhere to store a big flat thing in this apartment unless I hang it on the ceiling :/.

I haven't got a tree topper of any sort but almost half our ornaments are either swaps from here or links I followed from here to shops and they are ALL so weird. This place inspires madness Wink.  


ETA thought I'd check spoonflower, just in case. http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/2583175

The bad news: There is no key to happiness.
The good news: It isn't locked.

Thanks and great find!  You could do a quilted type number that could roll up to store.  And use safety pins to attach the ornaments?

I love this project. It seems like a very fun and practical way to have a tree if a real or fake one is not an option!

You have made it your own!!
