Before we get to the craft, I’ll start by telling you I bought the BEST book ever!

(and did you notice how many “ear marks” I have? haha)

Well if you turn to one of those marked pages you will find this pretty DIY:

I gathered my supplies (and of course most of them were on sale),

I love that they show our personality, match what we will be wearing AND can be an ornament on our Christmas tree every year!

I can’t wait for my DIY topper to sit on our cake!
