Do you ever have trouble with tree toppers at Christmas time? As in getting them to stay up straight on the top of the tree? We do almost every year. Even with our little fake tree this year we could not get the tree topper mount to stick into the fake branch correctly. So we came up with a quick fix that works like a charm! It works on typical star tree toppers that are meant to balance on a single branch sticking up. Super quick and easy!  And if you’re looking for extra  creative and unique Christmas ideas you can check out our How to Make a Small Burlap Christmas Tree Using Hangeror our Retro Christmas Craft : Soda CanAngels.  Or just visit our ENTIRE CHRISTMAS COLLECTION!

Depending on your tree you may need to tie the dowel to the inner pole (for a fake tree) If your tree is really full it will probably stay in place without tying it. You can use twist ties though you may want to find darker colored ones.Do you have trouble with tree toppers?

Slowly feed the dowel down into the tree keeping it as close to the trunk as possible. If you have a real tree with a thick trunk you may need to lean it a bit. v
