I have had several people ask me about my tree topper. In fact, I was told to take close-up pictures and "tell us how to do it"! My tree topper always gets attention and I guess that is because I think outside of the box when it comes to topping off the tree. We have 9 foot ceilings in our home. Our tree is probably 7 ft. My tree topper measures 24 inches from the very top to just below the center of the bow. For me, the secret to an interesting topper is to find something unusual to feature in it.
