Crystal Stack Christmas Tree

CRYSTAL GLASS STACKED TREE

I have been searching for months looking for pieces to make a stacked crystal Christmas tree.   I finally got all the pieces and got out my diamond drill to cut holes.

So this is what I started with. I used old lamp parts to hold the pieces together.

This is the piece that I found on the internet to inspire me.  I can’t tell you how many thrift stores I went into looking for different sizes of crystal candlestick holders so I could stack them to no avail!  Since I came up dry on finding candlesticks, I decided to find bowls or plates.

LOL when I compare my inspiration piece to the actual result, I am underwhelmed! But everything doesn’t have to be a smashing success!  I am adding this crystal tree to my collection for December Art Walk.

As usual after I make my post I get curious how many repurposing ideas I haven’t seen yet, so I Googled “upcycled glass tree” and found some pretty glass stacked trees.

Of course this one isn’t for Christmas, but it is a cool stacked glass idea!

Even though this idea is underwhelming, sometimes I have to follow through with an idea, just to get it out of my system.  Whew, done with THAT!
