Rather than just top your tree with a star, why not have the whole thing made from stars? The Superstar tree is a designer’s delight- and made from clustered Star of Davids. Designed by Modernica Studio, the tree is made from sustainable birch plywood and comes in bright green or natural wood grain. The two sizes are perfect for a table top décor, or to take the place of your family room tree. Just string some popcorn and cranberries, and celebrate with your little stars.

    After I found out my daughter was having asthma attacks because of the Christmas tree. I made a different type of tree every year until she got married! I like these ones but some of ours designs were way better!!! lolMaybe I should start making mine and selling them! they were recycled!

    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog readers have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?
