Snowfkake tree topper

I have a tatty old star that gets wired on top of my Christmas tree every year and I've been meaning to replace it for ages! I decided this 3D snowflake 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.

Full details of colours and materials are in {this post} on my blog if anyone would like them - thanks for stopping by!
