6. Pick a 3D Christmas tree topper design
Add a bit of interest to the classic star topper with a three-dimensional design. The Tangle Star Christmas Tree Top by Stelton is very sophisticated and made from brass-brushed stainless steel. Available at Black by Design. The perfect match for a Scandi Christmas decorating scheme, we think.
