Shower Curtain Ring Christmas Tree

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 the shower curtain rings that I used. I spray primed one side using a lovely white spray primer before I remembered to take a photo. Here’s the other side ready to be primed.

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 a lovely 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 a 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.

    1. Thanks so much Leshia! I still have some curtain rings left for a few more projects. Can't wait to post those too. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Brilliant! I just had to throw out my Christmas tree because of bug issues in my apartment complex, and wasn't quite able to justify buying a brand new one on the current budget. . .If a tree can be made out of shower rings, however, perhaps there is hope for me yet!

    1. Thanks Marissa! I love to make things out of different materials than the norm. It helps me keep my head on straight! lol.

  2. Oh I love this. I cannot throw anything away that I might use for a craft. I just finished 3 wine bottles covered in Epsom Salts for a centerpiece. My kids call me a hoarder but you know I must have some stash. I am your new follower since I love to recycle. Happy Thanksgiving
