How to Display Tree Toppers

 
                              Some people like to hand their Christmas tree toppers down from

                         generation to generation, others prefer to change their topper every year.

                               Some households like to pick a theme for their tree and then find

                  a tree topper that matches that theme. The most popular toppers are Angels or Stars.

                                             Tree toppers are even used as decorations

                                            over the fireplace or on a dining room table.


 
This post is really just a quick share with you on how I like to display some
 
of my Tree Topper collection. I know...... I have too many and the rule is only one per tree !
 
 
So it's get more trees or figure out another way to use them.
 
 
 
 
Bud vases are inexpensive and easy to find. The varying heights give visual interest.
 
 
 
 
 They stand up nicely in bud vases !
 
 
 You can almost always find Milk Glass or clear glass
 
 Bud Vases when you go Thrifting!
 
 
 
Candle sticks can also be used but I find the vases to be more stable.

  What is your family Tree Topper tradition ? Share your story with me.
 
 
 
I guess our family changes our Topper to match our theme. This year I used only my
 
Putz House collection and a newer house for the Topper.
 
 
 

Thanks for letting me share my decorating idea with you.

  1. I have always found these tree toppers very whimsical. As a child we had an angel on top of the tree, the same angel every year she was a tradition and her name was goldie. It was after I was married that I saw these beauties and have collected a few of my own

  3. We have a star - I've never seen tree toppers like this (maybe Australia is a bit behind the times?) I absolutely love how you displayed them in the little vases - it inspires me to think of different ways to use what's left over from the tree.

    1. Thank you so much. I broke my favorite as I was unpacking the ornaments this year. Then yesterday I found one while I was Thrifting and I had to get it :)

  7. These are wonderful ideas, Lisa. It's such a shame when vintage ornaments don't get used and displayed. Your collection of tree toppers is gorgeous! Thank you for sharing, and for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link Party. Hope to see you again this week. Hope you have had a lovely weekend!

  9. I display mine on my mantel with lite greenery in the front. Some sit by them selves and others are on handmade stands of a disk with a dowel rod glued to the disk. The topper slides over the dowel rod. I would add a picture if I knew how.
