Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

Level: Quick and Easy


Supply List:

Secure wood buttons to a spare sheet of paper with Removable Dots and apply two coats of red acrylic paint mixed with red glitter, allowing drying time in between coats.

Mix white acrylic paint with crystal glitter and paint the tree base and the inside base of terrarium. Let dry and apply a second coat of paint.

Paint the tree, terrarium base and circle top with turquoise paint mixed with silver glitter. Let dry and apply a second coat.

Apply Craft Dots to one side of a star, attach a piece of invisible thread and then place the second star onto the adhesive, pinching the wire between the two. Paint the star with yellow acrylic paint mixed with gold glitter. Let dry and add a second coat.

Once paint is dry, use Craft Dots to decorate tree with the painted furniture buttons.

Secure tree inside of the base of the terrarium with Craft  Dots.


Fill the base with fake snow and sprinkle in sequins. Use a hammer to insert nail into the circle top of terrarium. Take the invisible thread from the star and thread through the bottom of glass to meet the circle top at the opening. Secure thread to nail, close the glass lid and allow star to hang slightly above tree.


  • Save time by skipping the plain acrylic paint mixed with micro glitter and buy glitter paint instead.
  • Use any wood shapes to decorate your tree.
  • Try different colors of paint to match your home decor.
