R: 6 Option 2 - If you want 4 of your points to be longer.
You can triple crochet in the place of the dcs, on every other point.

Weave in all your ends.
Blocking:
It is a Good Idea to block your star.
Dampen the star with a squirt bottle of plain water,
Lay it on a towel, shaping the points.
You can use pins to pin the points if needed.
I set my items on the dryer when blocking to help 
them dry quicker.
 You can set it in the sun, also.

When your star is dry, it is ready to glue 
on your Tree Topper.
Plug in your Glue gun and put the glue stick in it.
I practiced laying my star on the topper, 
several times to get it perfect.
Once you are happy with the placement.

Put the Glue on the Tree Topper, 
and gently lay the crochet star on,
Pressing with your fingers, ease the star in place.
Be careful not to burn your fingers.

Glue your buttons in place. Give it a few minutes to dry,
Then, place on top of your tree.
R: 6 - Option 2                 R: 6 - Option 1

I am really liking how my Yarnie Christmas Tree
is coming along.
But it still needs a lot more Yarnie Goodness.
