Below, I will share all my tips and tricks so that you can create a stunning statement piece for the top of your tree.
You may think this wont work for you because you use something different on the top of your tree.
I promise it works.
Our main tree has a large peacock named Penelope.
I will show her to you later on in this post.
This framework works no matter what you put on the top of your tree.

Here’s our Peacock
Her name is Penelope. I did a poll a few years on Instagram.
And, a sweet follower chose her name.
This is Penelope sitting on her HUGE nest. This is a 12 foot tree in our living room with 40 foot ceilings.
I built her nest using large statement bows, tons and tons of gold pics, and added in some red poinsettias.
This nest did not happen overnight. I have been purchasing and adding a few elements to it each year.
And, below is the tree at night in all her glory.
Penelope would disappear had I not lit her from the bottom.
