So, I looked at Hobby Lobby and Lowe’s for tree toppers. Not only was their supply very limited, but those they had were very traditional. Flowy-robed angels and serene gold finials. Hardly the thing for this Gaga-esque beauty.

I bought white ostrich feathers, a couple of wiry silver tendril things, and the last branch of silver glitter balls.

Et voila:

Brad and Rockinrolla teased me a little about it, but I know they love the medusa-alien-bird head on our otherworldly tree as much as I do.

Here’s the whole effect:

LOVE the bubble tree. And at night, those LED lights beneath the bubbles in the trunk really shine.

    Very crafty of you…and very unique. My stepson made our tree topper – a beautiful metal star. It replaced a very sad looking angel that always tilted to one side 🙂

    Happy Holidays!

    Thanks, Tracy. Maybe one day one of our kids will make us a topper. We’d treasure that.

    (hint, hint, boys…)

    Your stepson sounds very crafty himself to make a metal star. That’s so sweet.
    Until this year we had a star topper that I’d made years ago out of a paper towel tube, cardboard, gold and green foil paper, and gold ribbon. It’s hung in there nicely, but it didn’t go with the Gaga tree.
