My Christmas treehas been in desparate need of a new topper for some time now and I've finally got round to doing something about it! I decided this 3D snowflake from Tando Creative would be the perfect thing for the job.
At approx 95mm x 95mm it's a good size for a tree topper. It would also make a great hanging decration and there are two other styles available so you could ring the changes, too!
I painted mine with Precious Metal paint in Mother of Pearl and because the intricate shape is pretty enough, I kept the embellishment fairly simple with just a few pearls, gems and micro beads.
The board is thick enough to push pins into to finish off the tips of the flake and accomodate a coiled wire to slot over the top of the tree. I snipped my pins down with pliers so that I didn't have to worry about keeping the full length of the pin perfectly straight so that it didn't poke through the surface of the board.
