DIY Glittery Christmas Tree Garland

DIY Glittery Christmas Tree Garland

Christmas is coming and there are a lot of decorations to be prepared for your festive glittery Christmas. And that means lots of DIYs if you want to save money. I’ve done my hand painted Christmas sign and now I got a DIY Christmas tree garland.

Upcycling is the best inexpensive way to make valuable decorations. I came out with the idea of using tissue cores and craft it into a Christmas tree garland. And to add more festive look to the garland, I presented it with glittery gold and silver colors.


These are all the items I needed to craft this Christmas tree garland :

  • Tissue cores
  • White paint
  • Gold paint
  • Silver paint
  • Gold glitter glue
  • Green glitter glue
  • Red glitter glue
  • Little star ornament
  • Glittery ribbon
  • Cotton rope
  • Lolly sticks
  • Drawing pen
  • Scissors
  • Cutter
  • Glue


And these are the steps I had to make the glittery garland:

  1. Draw a christmas tree on the tissue core. Cut the Christmas tree until three-quarters.
  2. Fold one side of the tissue core until the pointy tree is on top. Made 3 or more as desired.
  3. Paint the core with white and the tree with gold or silver paint.
  4. Apply some glitter glue; gold, red and green; to each tree.
  5. Add a shimmering little star ornament on top of the tree.
  6. Put all glittery Christmas tree together with cotton rope to form a garland.
  7. Tie some glittery ribbon to the rope.
  8. There you go, the glittery Christmas tree garland is ready to be hung.



I made this Christmas tree Garland with consideration of not to waste much money. As I think that we probably wouldn’t use the same Garland again next year.

I hope my creation can bring some joy and more festive Christmas to your lovely home decor. Stay with me with more Christmas decor ideas!


Have your creativity glittering!

See you soon!

  2. Such a great idea. Love it. I love glitter but not too fond of the mess. I have it all over my face each day as I decorate for the holidays…it is everywhere! And it doesn’t want to come off LOL. I love your garland.

    1. Thank you Denise! lol, me too, but you should try a glitter glue, it’s not as messy as using glue then pour some glitter. And you can easily wash it off without having it left in your face.


  3. Brilliant Mel. What an amazing idea to recycle those toilet paper rolls and it looks stunning. Love the way you mixed and matched the gold and silver trees with the wording.And those little stars on top
