If you are the traditional type, you likely have a favorite tree topper from your childhood that you use every year to decorate your Christmas tree. For many people, these tree toppers are religious in nature. Stars in silver or gold, and angels top the list of favored ways to top a Christmas tree.
Other people like to embrace the jolly old elf when they are decorating their tree. You can find Santa himself as a tree topper. Other choices include reindeer and snowmen. You will find these decorations in a variety of colors and materials. If you choose a realistic looking Santa, you can tie tiny bows to the branches of the rest of the tree. This will help the tree look bright with the red of Santa's suit and the red bows.
Another idea to decorate the top of your Christmas tree is to tie your tree topper into a theme that is also seen throughout the rest of the tree. A Christmas tree decorated with tiny white light bulbs and small white bows throughout will look great with the addition of a shimmery white angel to the top of the tree.
A popular theme that is emerging is making homemade Christmas tree decorations. From popcorn strings to red and green construction paper chains, you can carry the homemade theme to the top of the Christmas tree. A homemade cloth, felt, or paper star or angel will provide the right touch to finish off the homemade theme.
Some people like to decorate their Christmas trees all in silver bells. Sparkling silver bells provide a festive and whimsical look for the tree. You can also find silver bell tree toppers that let you continue the silver bell theme.
