If you’re looking for an easy way to create an eye-catching Christmas display at home, then why not try this super idea for using a glass Christmas tree display jar?
The glass trees featured in a post last year that’s been very popular and this year Cox & Cox kindly gifted one for us to try out. Having loved the design and concept for a while, and having had a slight mishap when trying to buy one elsewhere a few years ago (I mis-read the measurements online and ended up with a tiny version….yes, a classic mistake!), it was lovely to finally have a large version to play with.
Thankfully, it very much lived up to expectations. The Christmas tree jar is made from toughened glass and comes well packed in two pieces, a large piece which serves as the main body of the tree and a smaller piece that sits on top. The tree is completely hollow inside, all the way from the top to the base, so there’s plenty of room for it to be filled up. As it measures 50cm in height, it’s a substantial piece.
In fact, when it comes to filling up the jar, it has quite a large capacity and takes a lot to fill it completely. We opted for a silvery metallic winter theme and filled ours with an array of silver baubles, lights, snowflakes and stars.
It’s a bit tricky filling the jar to the top, as when you put the top section on, everything has a tendency to dislodge and fall down…but as you can see, we did manage to get the odd bauble to stay in situ in the top section!
The Christmas tree jar makes an ideal focal point for a display in your home, whether on a shelf, cabinet or as a table centrepiece. It can be filled with decorations to match your Christmas colour scheme, or perhaps in a contrasting colour to create a pop of interest. As well as filling it with decorations, you could also use it to display chocolates, star shaped cookies, nuts or other Christmas treats.
Here are some more styling ideas:
