Glass Christmas Tree

I apologize for not posting lately, but I've been busy with lots of projects and Christmas preparations. I've got a nice fat file of projects I want to share with you though. Some will have to wait until after Santa comes because snooping eyes might be lurking!

One thing I can share is this glass marble Christmas tree. I can't take the credit for the idea though. That goes to Sarah at Alderberry Hill.  She used a "stacked" Christmas tree.  Of course no such animal exists in this neck of the woods, so I used a plain cone from the dollar tree.  I did find one on Amazon though and it is winging it's way to me now!

I still like the way mine turned out.  Because of the flat top, I had to finish mine off a little differently, hence the star on top. I don't know why it looks like there's a white spot under the star.  It may be a reflection from the flash.  No matter how many pictures I took it was there even though there is no white spot on the tree.  Here's a quick picture tutorial of how I did mine.

I didn't end up using the white glitter shown here.

Christmas with my family is this weekend.  We are going to pick up our daughter from college Thursday.  She will be home for around 3 weeks...Yipee!  I may not have much time to post until after Christmas, but I do have lots of projects coming up.  Stay tuned!

Have a very merry Christmas!

  1. The tree is beautiful! I hope that you are enjoying the season and have fun with you family my friend. Merry Christmas to you and yours!!

  2. I LOVE IT!! I have a cone like this and it just might turn into a Christmas tree similar to this, too! Thanks for sharing!

    The white spot is just where your star atop the tree is shining! ;-)

  3. That's very pretty! I love the color and how the glass and glitter look together.
