House Christmas Tree Topper Ideas For You

House Christmas Tree Topper Ideas For You post thumbnail image

I always like to do at least a few smart little Christmas things every year, because It’s just fun and something to do while listening to classic Christmas carols. This year I decided that I wanted to make a tree topper in the shape of a house for The pink tree in my living room. Kind of a Home-for-the-Holidays theme, because that’s pretty much the whole theme this year. Ha. Anyway, I loved how this homemade DIY Christmas tree topper turned out, so I wanted to share.

I wanted something simple, but I knew I wanted a pink door and a few mini crowns. I always wanted the house to look like it was lit inside when the tree lighting is on – as if someone was at home.

Accessory:

– thin cardboard
-feel
Flicker
– pipe cleaner
Embroidery thread
-Paint + Brush
Band
– Glue

Since I like to tinker, I already had all these supplies. But you can choose to add other ornaments to your home Christmas tree Toppers like small flower boxes on the windows or balsa wood shingles on the roof. It’s really up to you!

For the cardboard, I used only a few leftovers of food that I had. Feel free to judge this huge pancake mix box as much as you like. Ha! However, if you do not want the cardboard to be reused, you can also use foam panels.

Step one: make the shape of the house from cardboard and tape. Remember that it’s on the top of the tree, so you don’t necessarily want the bottom opening to be oversized. If you are more skilled than me, you could absolutely make a more complex shaped house than this. I’d like to see someone do a two-story or something like a castle! You can also choose if you want your house tree to be Topper shaped/colorful like your real house, if you prefer.

Step two: paint the house. That is, if there are small gaps in your felt-tip pen, you will not see the color of the cardboard. I also painted most of the interior, as I reused the cardboard I had and did not want text or Logos to appear through the windows.

Step three: glue the felt to the outside. I chose a white house with a brown roof, dark brown outlined windows and a pink door.

Step four: add all the ornaments to the outside. I added small pipe cleaning crowns to the door and side windows. I also used glue and glitter to give the roof and window edges a snowy look. Although, after that, I realized that my snowy shingles could also be breasts or Pok outlines. Yes, I am very mature in my Sense of humor.

Once everything is completely dry, you can put it on top of your tree!

My only problem is that I’m not sure how to store it yet, so that it doesn’t get stained and I can reuse it in years to come. I hope to come across a box that is just a little bigger and that I can reuse to store it around the house with tissue paper so that it retains its shape. We’ll see!
