Give Me an “S” {Christmas Tree Topper}

The weather lately has been anything but Christmasy (just ask my neighbors who rode four-wheelers up and down the street all.Sunday.long) but at least the trees are 100% Christmas. I have the big one downstairs in the living room (you’ll see that later this week, but there was a sneak peak here) and a slightly smaller one upstairs in the Bonus Room. That’s what we’re talking about today.

It’s all black, white and silver and was actually the tree from my old little bitty house. It made the move with me and is even prettier here. It just needed a little update this year and when I saw this in HGTV magazine, I knew this was just what the doctor tree ordered.HGTV

Anyone who read about my gloves/button cookies huge failure saga might be a bit scared for me taking more inspiration from a magazine, but this was one I could actually handle. Spoiler Alert: There is a happy ending.HGTV inspiration supplies

I got a cardboard letter from Joann ($2.99) and a can of metallic silver spray paint. You can guess what happened next.Letter Tree Topper: Home Sweet Here

A custom tree topper easy update. It worked! We really lived happily ever after.

Just a little extra information…

* You can find letters a plenty out there today (I should do an inventory of my house and see how many different letters I have. Rough estimate: TONS!) but for this I think the hollow cardboard ones are the best. You don’t want something too heavy up there so this is perfection.

* I got these little paint pyramids for my birthday. (I also got my very own air compressor-  my daddy really knows the way to my heart. I love tools!) They made this job so much easier! I highly recommend them for little paint jobs like this. They keep your object from sticking to the paper beneath. Amazing!DSC_0102DSC_0103

* And a disclaimer- I don’t decorate my own trees. I just can’t do it. I have someone who comes to my house and does it- I call her mama :) She is so good at it so I just set them up, put on the lights and just let her work her magic. I did actually place the “S” up there myself. And thankfully she even did both trees without falling off the ladder this year. Guess where I get my gracefulness from? Love you mama and THANK YOU!!

  1. S! You got your S! You got your S!
    Forgive me – I just had to add this!
    Excellent tree! You need to sell tickets for a Christmas tour!

  2. That’s a great idea! I’m very tired of my tree topper, so I’m on the hunt for replacements. I’m going to pin it so I’ll remember next year…I’m all out of decorating energy this year, I think!

  3. I think I need a letter topper in my life. And don’t get me started on the painting pyramids. WHERE HAVE THESE BEEN ALL MY LIFE? Thank you for the introduction. You can consider them purchased by the Woodwards.

    Thanks so much for linking up to Dare to DIY!

    • Thank you!! And the little pyramids are a total game changer! I hope you enjoy yours as much as I have mine. It’s opened a whole new world of mess free (or at least less- messy) painting!
      I’m so sad Dare to DIY is over but thanks for hosting again! it’s my favorite :)
