    What did you use to hang your treetoppers?
  • raining rita 4mo

    angelagafford I have tried several different ideas but the one I like the best is to stuff some tin foil down about a half inch or less then use hot glue to fill in enclosing a wire to hold an embroidery floss loop.....I like to put long embroidery floss loops on all my ornaments then I tie knots in the loops so I can hook the hangers in different places.....I like my ornaments to hang and not lay.....I have had problems in the past with the ornaments always turning their faces or fronts to the trunk of the tree so now I put a pipe cleaner loop on first and then my thread loop goes through that. I can then twist the pipe cleaner loop which will turn the ornament so it faces outward...I have three trees which rotate so it is nice if the ornaments have a gentle sway.
