Make Glass Mosaic Christmas Trees (via dollarstorecrafts.com)

I love the glass gems at the dollar store and am always on the look out for great ways to use them. Sarah from Alderberry Hill transformed some plain styrofoam into these stunning trees with little more than paint and these gems. Make yours in staggered tiers like Sarah or keep it simple and use this same technique to make a straight cone tree. Make a few in colors to complement your decor or stay with a monochromatic palate. Either way, they will look great on your mantle, window sill or as part of your Christmas Village. [how to make glass mosaic Christmas trees]

Project estimate:

  • Styrofoam trees, $1 and up
  • Acrylic paint, on hand
  • Glue gun and glue sticks, on hand or $1 and up
  • Glass gems, $1 and up

Total: $2 and up

    I did this with some Styrofoam trees and love them, but the trees are not from the Dollar Tree as if they get any only little tiny ones. Also those are stax trees, which are not found at hobby stores only online and postage cost as much as the product does. I know I purchased two of the stax trees so far.
