Tree Topper

I made a bunch of small wooden badge ornaments for my co-workers, but then I had an idea for a tree-topper in the same style.  Stopped off at Ride-Aid and picked up a tree topper and threw out everything except for the lights.  Lased out mirrored acrylic for the front, some plain plastic for the back, and foam-core for the standoffs in between.

Came out pretty well, and got a lot of compliments.  Before I make any more, I need to figure out a way to illuminate it better, because buying tree-toppers just for the lights isn’t terribly cost effective.  I also need to make sure to use LED only, as incandescent bulbs might get too hot.
