Make whimsical tree toppers from foam spheres, card stock, glitter and paper straws. To create these, cut several straws in different lengths using scissors. Update a basic foam sphere by painting it a color which coordinates with the tree decor. To play with light, consider adding a layer of glitter over the paint for a sparkling effect. In order to attach the spheres to the tops of the trees, make connectors by shaping and cutting card stock into conicals, then pushing them up into the foam spheres. Next, randomly attach the straws to the spheres, then place the toppers on the trees.
