Turning light covers and upcycling them into a glass globe Christmas tree.
The perfect Christmas tree? All Christmas trees are perfect! – Charles N Barnard
Whether you change out light fixtures, found some globes in a free pile, or purchased a few at a thrift store (or ReStore), you can make something beautiful with them.
If you can’t find free globes/light covers, they are plentiful at your local ReStore for around $1-$3 (fancy/heavy/vintage ones can be on the high side) each.
GLASS COVER TREE SUPPLIES

- Glass globes/light covers in various sizes
- Glue, if desired
- After playing around with sizes and shapes, five globes were purchased and then stacked from largest to smallest.
- You can glue yours together if you want a permanent décor item (or to gift). We choose to just set them up so we can use them for something else. If you don’t glue them, make sure you place it out of the way so it won’t get bumped.
- The star was found at our local Goodwill. The star had a clip so it was attached to a chopstick of course!
Christmas is a glorious time of the year, simple in orgin, deep in meaning, beautiful in tradition, rich in memories, and charitable in spirit – Thomas S. Monson
We set our glass globe Christmas tree on top of a mirror and added a few sprigs and ornaments to the display.
You can add some glitter snow, ornaments, sprigs, or whatever you have lying around would make for a lovely holiday decoration. Oh, and some twinkle lights would be lovely too!
Easy, huh? With just takes a little imagination and not much else really!
