This is the last post for Christmas in July! I hope you’ve been enjoying the projects and found some that you’ll make this year. Today I’m sharing my little aluminum Christmas tree from last year along with lots more ways to display vintage Shiny Brite ornaments. If you need more Shiny Brite, you can find just about every style PLUS original boxes on Etsy.

How to Display Shiny Brite Ornaments
Shiny Brite Cola Crate — You know I also have a weakness for vintage wood crates, right? Well, Sarah combined the two, making a Christmas decor piece that I’m drooling over!
Fill a Bowl — I have more glass balls than will fit comfortably on my tree. Many years I’ve just filled a bowl on my coffee or dining table so that I could look at them during the Christmas season.
This blogger filled a slightly rusty bird feeder with delicate, old Shiny Brite ornaments. You’ve really got to go over to this post to see the details of these beauties!!!
Put Shiny Brite Ornaments on a White Christmas Tree — I’m usually a fan of traditional green Christmas trees. But this white one creates a great background for the beautiful colors of vintage glass balls!

Display Shiny Brite Ornaments in the Box — The graphics on the old boxes make sweet Christmas decorations, too. Just leave the balls in the box and set it out for everyone to oooooooh and aaaaaaah over!
Add Shiny Brite Ornaments to Your Mantel — Anywhere you have a little blank space, just add an ornament.
Balance Shiny Brite Ornaments on Vases, Bottles, or Candlesticks — This would be a lovely way to display my milk glass vases at the same time! Love these in front of the chalkboard, too!
Fill a Jar with Shiny Brite Ornaments — Sorry for the poor quality of this photo. It’s from my Room With a Past shelf many years ago. But I just had to show you how many pink ornaments I had that year!
If for some strange reason you can’t find Shiny Brite ornaments at your local thrift stores, you can find LOTS of them, many still in their original box, on Etsy. And reproductions are still being made today. Take a look at these I found on Amazon:
