DIY Present Toppers

Sometimes I see things on Pinterest that just stop me in my tracks.  Especially tantalizing are projects that are simple yet beautiful.  So when I saw these little present toppers (original source found here) I just knew that, no matter how busy I was this holiday season, I would be making some of my own.

Now I loved her little animals, but I wasn't able to find any moose or reindeer figurines.  I was, however, able to find some Christmas trees (at Michael's) and I thought those would do quite nicely.

It was really just a matter of hot gluing the trees to some clothespins and then spray painting them silver.

How cute is that?!

As seen on:



  1. These are soo cute!! What a great idea! Merry Christmas! xx Holly

  2. Those are just too cute Elena. :) Merry Christmas! I'm so glad I've "met" you through blogging. Megan

  3. These are great! This will be on the top of my list of things to make next year!

  4. If you can't find little animals figures like you originally wanted, you should check out any hobby store that sells model railroad stuff. They usually have all sorts of trees, animals, cars, etc. that train enthusiasts use to make their railroad layouts more realistic.

  5. THIS is a great idea! They're so classy. I bet you can find something similarly nice at the dollar store.

  6. Another beautifully wrapped gift. I wouldn't want to open anything you gave me with your thoughtful presentation. These are great!

  7. Great idea! Love it! I'd love you to come link up at my Pin Me Linky Party.
