How to Make Cute Tart Tin Christmas Trees

5 Materials

Make a few Christmas Trees out of tart tins this season!

Tart tin Christmas trees

These little trees are so cute and you can make them using vintage tart tins or buy a few new ones!

Make them as gifts, to decorate your holiday-tiered tray, or add a string to turn them into ornaments.

Note: This DIY is made with supplies I bought a while back on Amazon. The spools came in bulk. If you don't need that many, check your local craft supply store to see if you can get a smaller quantity.

This craft is one of ten. Check out the full post and get links to the supplies here ... 10 Upcycled Christmas Decor Ideas.

Tools and materials for the DIY project

Tools and materials:

To get started, you'll need E6000 adhesive, tart tins in varied sizes, and wood spools in two different sizes: two 1-inch wooden spools, and a 1.75" spool for the base.

Gluing the wood spools to the tart tins

Glue the wood spools to the tart tins

There’s no drilling in this DIY, just glue a 1-inch wood spool using E6000 between each tin to elevate it. Then glue a 1.75-inch spool to the bottom as a base and let everything dry upside down!

Here's another photo of my finished trees with beads glued to the top! I hope you enjoy this simple craft.

I was so happy with the way these trees came out that I made a few more to sell in my antique store booth and they were a big hit!

    The upside down tart tins remind me so much of the foil light reflectors of years ago. Anybody else remember these?
