More Tree Ideas

Baby’s First Christmas

I cannot take credit for this idea! My son found them in a shop and sent me a picture. You could actually do this with any size tree — maybe a Nightlight Tree? Or even add some ornaments to the Small Spruce Tree?

Glitter Trees

The first photo is mine. It was inspired by one that another ceramist shared online. Hers is  the second photo.  The balls that I found were obviously too big. But I was able to find some smaller ones at the craft store. Next year I hope to improve on this technique. (The loose glitter did make quite a mess but it was fun to do!)

Small Spruce Decorated Tree

The first is a small Sierra Spruce tree done in green glaze with multicolored lights and shown lit us.  Did you know that there are molds for toppers and ornaments for this tree?  I just found the molds! The toppers include an angel (shown), a snowflake, and a teddy bear. There are also twenty really tiny ornaments. These are shown on the second tree (which is glazed the same but not lit up in the photo). I didn’t spend time painting the detail, but rather just did them all in gold and glued them on with a hot glue gun. There are also two bases for this tree; a wooden barrel and a draped base. (When we made the first tree we did not have the base mold.]
