Updated Vintage Ceramic Christmas Tree

Sharing is caring!

I was really on the fence about painting this vintage ceramic tree that was my Mom’s. I have had it for 25 years & loved it as a kid growing up. Remember when taking ceramics class was all the rage in the 70’s & 80’s? My Mom & Aunt used to go about once a month & make all kinds of things.

Unfortunately, this is probably the only piece we still have. To say I cherish it is an understatement, however, I found myself not displaying it because it didn’t go with my decorations. I know that probably sounds awful, but if you are a little OCD with your decor like so many of us are, I am sure you understand.

 I decided it would make more sense to take it out every year & really enjoy it then keep it in storage. So, I gave it an update with two coats of silver mirror paint & painted the edges in faux snow. I ordered some new lights on ebay & now she is stunning!  My daughter actually asked if I could give this to her when she gets her first house! That is what it is all about, passing things on that mean so much! Have a great day!

I love how you updated your ceramic tree to keep it as a part of your family's celebrations! And such a bonus that the next generation is already calling dibs on it - well done! You've convinced me that I'm not crazy to want to do any update to thrifted one I have. Did you have to do any prep work to the tree to make the paint stick?
