The Star on the Tree plus ribbons and bows

My Christmas tree topper is done and ready to share. 

I'm using a star as my topper to symbolize the Star of Bethlehem. 

This star is also called the Christmas Star and Christians believe it is the star that led the wise men, or magi, to Bethlehem and revealed the birth of Jesus.  

The magi followed the star, which stopped above the location where Jesus was born. 

My husband bought our red glittered star a few years ago and it has been used each year on at least one of our trees. This year, we only have one tree up (so much to do with our recent move and getting settled in) so our Christmas Star stands atop the tree as a Christian tradition in our home.

After the star was placed on the tree, ribbons were cut in strips 18 inches long or more. A single loop was pinched and tied with wire. The ends of the ribbons can be cut at an angle and curled. I like to use wire ribbons since it holds the curls. Each ribbon piece was tucked in around the star.
