Glittery Monogram Tree Topper

18
While my tree is nothing to brag about, I wanted to hurry and show you my new Glittery Monogram Tree Topper.  I am in glittery love right now!  Here, let me show you how I made it!

But first, the weather has not been very pretty lately so the curb finds have been slim. I have high hopes though and have found a few things that I have not shared with you yet. Until then, you will just have to bare with me sharing my craftier side!
I have to let you know where I got the idea from.   A few days ago on Scribbles and Swirls I featured a really neat Sparkly Monogram Tree Topper that I found over at Brooklyn Limestone.  The “S” monogram is spectacular and so pretty in blue.

Well today my blog friend, Katie from Sweet Girl Expressions, and I were emailing back and forth how much we loved this idea and how easily we could do it!  Although I am in love with how the script letter “S” looks it has no use for our family.  That’s okay though because I am also completely in love with the script letter “M”!  I used the Vivaldi word document font size 440 and printed it out.  I copied and free handed it on a large shoe box top to enlarge it a bit more, and then cut it out.
The next step was the fun part:  Glue and Glitter!
My LadyBug was using glitter to finish up her science project presentation so my kitchen is now a glittery mess!
It seemed kind of flimsy so I decided to hot glue some popsicle sticks to the back for support.
Next I glued some cooking skewers to the bottom so that I could perch it up into the treetop!
Finished!
It’s not quite as classy as the three dimensional “S” over at the Limestone but I didn’t have the time or patience to do that.  So by the time I left for Bubba’s karate practice and back it was all dry and ready to go!
Note:  If I did have the time and the patience I think I would choose to do this project on Foam Board and use an Exacto knife to cut the letter out – it would look a bit more “finished” and sturdy! – but like I said “no time or patience here!”
I love it!  I think it is quite impressive.  I love love love monograms and have words, monograms and scripts all over my house so why not a glittery one on the tree, right? 
And here is one more picture up close on top of our 9′ tree!  I finally finished decorating it, well the kids did!
I think this is my favorite Christmas project by far!
  
Thank you all so much for your encouragement.  I really enjoy reading through your sweet comments.
Happy Holidays!

  1. BRAVO!!! You did a beautiful job!!…I knew you would too 🙂
    Maybe I should work on an "F"????…or maybe not because it would look like someone was giving a grade to our tree….a big, fat F :0

  2. Thanks Mandy! I love visiting your parties to see what everyone has been up to. Lots of creativity out there – thanks for the feature 🙂
    P.S. I'm still finding glitter everywhere…the price you pay for DIY, I guess! Merry CHRISTmas!

  3. This is sooo cute!! I was looking for a unique-free topper,or somethin I could make really cheap. I don't game all the glitter ornaments,but everything is red and gold. It's a whole bunch of that wide red velvet ribbon,and big red flowers(all permanently attached to the tree). This is wonderfull way to add dazzle(which I love),plus I can make it. As a bonus-its an "M",my name is monique miller-how perfect is that…
    One question tho….do you think I can double side it,so I can show it from inside and out??
    Thanks,and happy holidays.
