I wanted to make a tree topper but I didn't want to throw together something ugly. I decided the only thing I could do that would look nice but be little to no cost was origami. I looked online until I found a pattern that I thought would work. I did not have pretty paper so I painted some white paper with acrylic paint. I adjusted the paper dimensions so the star would be big enough, then started folding. The first attempt did not go very well but the second one was perfect. I filled it with Christmas lights and my tree was complete.
