Sparkle in the Holidays With an Aluminum Tinsel Christmas Tree

A little glitter and a little bit of shine help bring cheer to the kids in your life or the kid in you. A vintage aluminum Christmas tree will bring nostalgia to your holiday season. Imagine the delight of a vintage silver Christmas tree adorning your front room for family and friends.

Reasons you might want an old-fashioned aluminum Christmas tree
  • The glitter factor: A vintage tinsel Christmas tree sparkles on its own. You can add your own sparkly tinsel, but it's not necessary. You can add other shiny effects (but no electric lights, please).
  • Time saving: Make one purchase of an aluminum Christmas tree, and you're set for a long time.
  • Easy clean up: With an aluminum tree, you might have a few pieces of tinsel to pick up afterward, but you won’t be facing a floor full of pine needles.
How do you decorate with an aluminum Christmas tree?

Before they were vintage, aluminum Christmas trees could be lit up with a spinning colored light that would bounce colors off of the tinsel branches. Instead, you might decide to just hang colored balls or only decorations made by kids. Stringing popcorn while you watch the tree twinkle is sure to bring a smile. If you can find angel hair — the beautiful wispy spun glass — it looks lovely under a Nativity scene or a Christmas snow globe. If you have a gold-colored aluminum tree, your color scheme can be items that complement the gold. With a little bit of Frankincense and myrrh, you're ready for the season.

What type of aluminum Christmas tree might you find?

When you look for a vintage tinsel Christmas tree on eBay, you will find quite a few options. There are squat little trees about two feet tall. There are trees 3, 4, and 5 feet tall, as well as others that are up to 9 feet tall or taller than many ceilings. There are some trees with sparse branches that you can hang more decorations on, and there are some with fuller branches that you can't even see through to the other side. You can choose the sparkling silver, gold, white, blue, or pink tree. There are even green aluminum trees for those who want something a little more traditional in color. If you have your heart set on a certain color, you can probably find it.
