Today, I have a fun and easy Christmas Tree Glass Bottle Craft to share with you. This holiday season, Krazy Glue is getting a little krazy and they challenged me to create a fun, creative and over the top spin on the Christmas table décor. I love crafting so I was happy to come up with something. I also love crafts that involve reuse or upcycling so I used an empty wine bottle as the basis for this surprising classy wine bottle Christmas tree! Thank you Krazy Glue for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.
Easy Christmas Tree Glass Bottle Craft
Christmas Tree Glass Bottle Craft Supplies:
I always begin my crafts by gathering my supplies. For me this is a fluid process, I gather up anything that inspires me and I may or may not end up using it all. First I went through my Christmas decor and found pieces that I would probably not use this year but that were cute. I piled those up and then I got a wine bottle out of the recycling bin. For this glass bottle craft, you could use any glass bottle that has a tall thin shape such as a sparking juice bottle or a olive oil bottle if you don’t have any wine bottles. I added Krazy Glue® Craft No Run Gel With Skin Guard® and I was ready to go.
- empty glass bottle (such as a wine bottle)
- Krazy Glue® Craft No Run Gel With Skin Guard®
- green tinsel garland (my was an old rope tinsel garland that I think I got at Publix)
- tiny ornaments (you can use old pieces of ornaments, gift tags, & decor, or find tiny ornaments at a craft store)
- Star (you can use a star shaped ornament or cut a paper star)
- Pipe cleaners (optional, I used red sparkly pipe cleaners to make round ornaments)
- wrapped mini packages (optional, to go under the tree)
Christmas Tree Glass Bottle Craft Instructions
For this krazy, holiday-inspired campaign, I thought the wine bottle provided a fun, sturdy base to become a tree. I wrapped my tinsel garland around the bottle and it was a pretty perfect fit but you can always trim it if need be. You already know that Krazy Glue is the ultimate fix-it solution, but it’s also an essential tool to build and create krazy things! Krazy Glue provides you with the fastest and strongest bonds so you craft fast and strong. So I grabbed my Krazy Glue® Craft No Run Gel With Skin Guard® and put a little squeeze on the side of the glass bottle near the base. I then held one of the ends of the tinsel rope garland to the glue and let it dry. Did you know that a single drop of Krazy Glue can hold up to 2,000 pounds and takes just 30 seconds to dry? Krazy, huh? I just kept wrapping the tinsel rope garland around the bottle and adding a drop of Krazy glue every now and then to secure it in place.
The whole glass bottle wrapping phase of the craft is very easy but you need to add a little extra care and a few extra drops of Krazy Glue as you approach the rounded portion of the bottle.
I curled up the last bit of garland pretty tight on top of the lid so I used some extra Krazy Glue there to hold it all in place.
Then I gathered tiny ornaments and I cut my star out of yellow paper. I used red sparkly pipe cleaners to make round red ball ornaments. I used tiny poinsettia flowers as ornaments as well. A drop of Krazy Glue secured each one to the Christmas tree craft.
At this point the Christmas tree glass bottle craft can be transferred to the center of the table (or other final decor spot) and you can add the finishing touches. I used a cute little wooden deer that had been a gift label from my aunt last year at the base of the tree for decoration and added little wrapped presents around the base. You can wrap matchboxes and such or pick up a few at the craft store. You can be all finished here or you can bring it to the next Krazy level by gathering some more household goodies that you can reuse as a base.
I decided to add a base to my Christmas Tree Glass Bottle Craft so that I could glue the little wrapped presents down and not having them roaming free on the table. I used an old cookie tin and glued the tree and presents around on the lid. I then glued a crocheted scarf around the edge of the cookie tin to give it the look of a tree skirt.
Krazy Glue works great for bonding all the different types of elements involved in this glass bottle craft- from cloth to metal to plastic. Krazy Glue is available in a wide assortment of instant adhesives so you can stick it just the way you like it!
