"Here's an idea for creating the most earth-friendly, inexpensive, yet surprisingly pretty Christmas tree topper (or window or mantel decoration) ever. Simply cut one-half inch segments from paper towel and tp cardboard rolls with ordinary scissors and arrange them to create a large, eye-catching snowflake shape. Brush on or spray metallic paint on all surfaces to give your topper a gold, silver, or copper glow. It's so enjoyable to make something out of practically nothing!"

love this Upcycled Cardboard Tree Topper! The detailed instructions are so easy to follow and it looks great as well. I have to agree with paver2 below, I would use a different color so it will kinda sparkle somehow, maybe glitter even though I don't like that sometimes it can flake off. I have made a few things using cut tp rolls and the grandkids love making things with them too. Thank you so much for sharing this free craft idea.

It's kind of amazing what you can do with ordinary things and make them look really cool! I would probably spray paint it all silver or even white, because it is, after all, a snowflake. U might add a little silver or gold glitter, too. A few of these hung in the window would look very Christmasy.
