DIY Death Star Christmas Tree Topper

Decorating the tree is one of the most fun things to do in the run-up to Christmas (unless you’ve got a cat…) – and putting the topper up is an absolute highlight. There are all kinds of awesome toppers you can buy, but none of them are probably as geeky as this home-made one.

Yes, Dorks, that is indeed a Death Star Christmas tree topper…

This geekerific topper was made by Meg from Offbeat Home and Life. Although it looks like quite a difficult make (I thought it was papier-mâché at first), Meg assures that it’s really easy. And not papier-mâché at all; the base is a basic plastic (or glass) round ornament.

Your equipment list:

What’s cool about it is that you can also make it as a tree ornament; just keep the little hanger on top and you can hang the Death Star in your Christmas tree. It’s bound to be a bit of a messy project, what with all the glitter and paint – but the end result is well worth it. Just as long as you’re willing to answer questions about what exactly that moon-shaped thing on top of your tree is supposed to be.

You can find the entire tutorial, including pictures on Offbeat Home and Life.
