How to Make Poinsettia Lights Using Twinkle Lights & Tissue Paper
- 1 Wood Dowl as thick and long as needed. (You want one that fits into the tree topper holder or else one that can be glued to the back of the topper. Our was a 2/3″)
- Green spray paint
- Hot Glue Gun
Gather your dowel, paint and tree topper. Plus have a hot glue gun ready. If it’s a full size tree you may want to use a full length 36” dowel.
Paint your dowel so that it doesn’t show up in the tree.
Place the dowel into the tree topper holder. You can also glue it to the back of a tree topper if it does not have a holder. Then pump hot glue around the edges or onto the back of your tree topper.
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.
Your tree topper is now ready to push down into your tree!
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.
thank you, this is a great idea.
