Glitter Christmas Trees in Milk Glass Vases

Who doesn’t have loads of milk glass vases sitting around? Okay crafters, maybe just me but I’m going to show you how to turn those vases upside down to create charming bases for glitter Christmas trees.

You’ll need:

  • Milk glass vases (flea markets, antique stores are a good source for these beauties)
  • Styrofoam cones
  • Elmers Glue
  • Foam brushes
  • Glitter
  • Glue gun

All of the project ingredients, with the exception of the vases, can be found at any craft store.

Here’s how ya do it:

  1. Turn the vase upside down to make sure it doesn’t wobble when sitting on a flat surface.
  2. Then choose the appropriate sized styrofoam cone to rest securely on the bottom of the vase.
  3. Using a foam brush, completely slather the styrofoam cone with glue and douse it with glitter. Glittering 101: To avoid a massive glitter fiasco, find a large cardboard box and position it so the opening is on the top, place the object to be glittered inside the box then sprinkle glitter until you have completely covered said object. Don’t forget to glitter the bottom of the tree!
  4. When the glittered cone is completely dry, use a glue gun to affix the cone to the bottom of the vase.
  5. You’re done!

Happy crafting!
