Make Glass Mosaic Christmas Trees (via

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]
