How to Make a Shower Curtain Ring Christmas Tree
I’m always trying to find new ways to use ordinary things… like plastic shower curtain rings for example. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that back in October I posted some shower curtain ring pumpkins that I made from a bag of rings that I thrifted for $1. You can find that post here.
I mentioned in that post that I had other ideas for those rings as well, and here’s one of them. My shower curtain ring Christmas Tree.
Here are my supplies.. the primed rings and an 8″ cork circle hot mat that I got at the dollar store.
Using my glue gun I applied the first row of rings to the spray primed cork circle, and then I started working my way up and slightly inward with each level. I roughly laid out each level before gluing. Here’s my tree with three levels done.
I kept working my way up and in with each level. There’s no real plan to this, you just have to figure it out as you go. It does take a little patience.
Here’s my 12″ tall tree with all the rings in place. All one hundred and two of them. Some of the spray primer came off in spots because I did some repositioning as I went along. I didn’t worry about it because it was going to be covered up.
I spray painted the tree with two light coats of Rustoleum Ultra Cover White, letting it dry well in between coats. While the second coat was still wet I sprinkled the tree with a lot of silver glitter.
I let the tree dry for a few hours and then I gave it a coat of Tremclad Spray Urethane because that’s what I had on hand. Then I added a silver toned thrifted $1 brooch from my stash as the tree topper. I love using thrifted jewellery in my crafts.
And here’s my finished shower curtain ring Christmas tree again.. all glittered up and ready for the holiday season.
