Have a Very Pink Floyd Christmas with this Dark Side of the Moon Tree Topper

The standard store bought Christmas tree star is boring! There, I said it! It needed to be said and many of you might be thinking the same thing.

Not to say the significance of the Christmas tree star is lost on me. I grew up in the Catholic Church and can appreciate the meaning of the star of Bethlehem. For as long as I can remember, however, the same old star has topped my family’s Christmas tree, and I believe the time has come for a creative change.

While relaxing this past weekend, I was listening to my favorite song of all time, Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb” from The Wall album. While I was immersed in the song’s hypnotic guitar solo, the idea for a new star hit me as my gaze centered on the CD I still have of The Dark Side of the Moon.

I thought that iconic Pink Floyd prism emblem on The Dark Side of the Moon’s cover would make a kick-ass Christmas tree topper. To take the idea even further, I wanted the design to glow in the dark too.

With millions of fellow Pink Floyd fans out there, I think this kind of craft could start a new trend in rethinking what a Christmas tree star can become. The process to make one out of basic cardboard is incredibly simple and with the aid of store bought glow-in-the-dark paint, you can relax and mellow-out to good music while being illuminated by your glowing holiday tree.

The video will guide you on your journey towards Pink Floyd zen. All you need is some Bristol board, scrap cardboard, a printer, glue, and glow-in-the-dark paint from your local craft supply store.

Merry Pink Floyd Christmas and may the great gig in the sky bring happiness and joy to you all over the holidays!
