Next, I drilled a small hole in the bottom of my wooden star that was measured off of the skewer size

I used a small dab of hot glue to secure the wood skewer into the tree topper

Next up, the tree!  Starting at the top of the tree with some glue, begin wrapping the yard around the cone.

Once the cone was wrapped in yarn, continue with a top layer of yarn to create an overlay pattern.
