Beautifully Unusual Christmas Tree Toppers

Although Christmas trees are usually topped with either a star or an angel, that does not mean you can’t break the rules.

Why don’t you try something else that’s perhaps a little more modern or that fits better with the theme and style of your décor?

Get creative, the possibilities are endless.

You can try with a sea star, a crown, peacock feathers, ribbons, music sheets, and even antlers…Your only limit is your imagination and resourcefulness.

Just try to think outside the box and you can come up with a statement solution.

Ultimately, your unconventional tree topper might even serve as a great conversation starter for your holiday party or family get-together.

1. Royal Crown






Beyond doubt, everyone puts a lot of work into making the Christmas tree look stunning. That’s why an elegant crown seems to be the perfect finishing touch!

7. Real Starfish


Partly traditional approach



Keeping with at least part of the traditional tree toppers, why not swap out a regular star for a real starfish?

This tree topper would look great on almost any tree, but it can turn a beach-inspired Christmas tree into a true show-stopper.

You can even go a step further and combine the starfish with some extra little seashells and pearls. Photo: Credit
