I love vintage Christmas ornaments and the vintage strings of lights. It reminds me of my childhood and I remember thinking how our tree looked so beautiful. I even love that tacky tinsel. 😅
This year I want to make one of my smaller trees have a vintage feel. I have been in search for vintage ornaments and bulbs and I hit the jack pot when I found 40 vintage bulbs. I couldn't wait to incorpate them into my tree. Your going to love how easy this project is.

This art work was my inspiration for my vintage Christmas tree.

Here are my supplies

Taking the bulbs and apply a thick coat of Mod Podge. When the bulb is covered well, insert the bulb into the glitter. I let the bulbs sit for about an hour before I sprayed a light coat of Mod Podge sealent.

Using red twine, I just hung my vintage bulbs on my tree.

My vintage tree is not all done but it will be in the next couple of days.
