Sticking glass

Hi Christine,
Trees are so awesome and I would love to make some. I have so much white, green and brown glass found on the SoCal coast that I would love to make your trees for gifts. I make a few items, flat though, that I put together then have to resin to make it stay together. I can't find a glue that will hold glass to glass. WHAT glue do you use? Thanks for sharing your project; it's gorgeous.

Hi Christina,
I love your Christmas tree, where can I buy the sea glass, yours looks so perfectly stacked. Do you no of a supplier where I can purchase the glass, and decorations for this tree. It's absolutely beautiful, hope you don't mind if I try and duplicate it, it's gorgeous. Thank you, respectively, Patty

Beautiful Trees

I love your Christmas trees and after seeing them I have been collecting sea glass in hopes of making one before Christmas time. I am wondering what type of glue

you found to be the best to hold the glass on itself. Any other helpful tips are appreciated as well. Thanks for sharing your awesome project.

Get a small Poland Springs bottle of water empty it's something like a coaster place it on the bottom start gluing the class to that when you get to the top put some cardboard so it's shaped like a tree proceed

Making Christmas Trees
by: Christine

I start with a base, I use a bottle bottom from a liquor bottle, and then glue a row of glass across the bottom,shaping like a christmas tree.

Keep on stacking the pieces, rows getting smaller each time until you get to the top of the tree. Leave some time to dry between layers.

After that I fill in any big open spaces with a piece of glass that fits well there.

Then after drying decorate with glass beads or whatever you want.

Hope this helps.

The bottle bottom is the bottom of a beer or liquor bottle that I find on the beach

They are very pretty and what a clever use of the common green and white sea glass. Very nice. I don't quite understand how they are glued on a "bottle bottom" though. Would love to try it!!
