DIY Tutorial From a Catch My Party Member: How to Make Glitter Christmas Trees

Laura B made these gorgeous glitter Christmas trees as decorations for her Crafty Kids Christmas Party. Not only did they add serious sparkle to her party, but wait 'til you see how inexpensive and easy they are to make.

Laura so generously put together this tutorial for us. Thank you, Laura!

Supplies you will need:

  • 3 styrofoam trees: I used sizes, 15x5, 12x4 and 9x4, but you can use any size you want.
  • 3 small candlesticks. I found these at Michaels for $1.00
  • Spray adhesive
  • Elmer’s glue for the glitter on the bottom and a stronger epoxy like glue ( I used E6000) to glue the tree to the candlesticks
  • Glitter in any colors you LOVE
  • White spray paint
Here’s what you do:
  • Give your tree a good coating of the spray adhesive. It dries pretty fast so you won’t have to wait too too long. Leave the bottom of the tree undone, you will glitter this at the end.
  • Once you have your tree coated in glue, cover it completely with the glitter. Do this for all three trees and then set them aside to dry.
  • While they are drying, you can spray paint your candlesticks. Let those dry. I even saw pretty silver candlesticks. That would look cool to just leave them silver.
  • Now take your E6000 and glue the candlesticks to the trees. Let them sit overnight. They have to be really good and dry.
  • When everything is good and dry, flip them over and put a little Elmer’s glue on the bottom around where the tree is glued to the candlestick. Glitter this.
  • You are done! Find the perfect spot for these and wait for all the compliments. They are so pretty that I had several people not believe I made them!

(I have to give the credit for this tutorial to eighteen25. I originally saw it here.)

What sparkley and fun Christmas trees!  Thank you again, Laura, for sharing with us.

Take a look at these seriously fantastic kids' parties we've seen on our site... I'm blown away by all the creativity.

Courtney D's Children's Gingerbread House Decorating Party - This gingerbread house is unbelievable and we love the candy cane Christmas trees. We haven't seen those before.

The Savvy Mom's Guides Gingerbread Play Party - The chefs hats and aprons are too cute, and there were two fun activities at this party: birdhouse decorating and cookie decorating.

Laura B's Crafty Kids Christmas Party - What a gorgeous table filled with candy canes, peppermint sticks, cookies, and snowballs and we love how Santa made a surprise appearance at the party.

Amanda P's Snowman Children's Holiday Party - There are so many great details here from the snowball garlands to the big snowman centerpiece and little snowmen made out of marshmallows.

Laura M's Cookie Decorating Playdate - Such a pretty dessert table. We love all the red accents like the red sodas, red cupcakes and red backdrop.
