Vintage Christmas Tree
If you want to celebrate your Christmas holiday with an authentic vintage Christmas tree, then you need to find authentic vintage Christmas tree lights to light up your tree.
Vintage Christmas lights were made differently both in shape, and style, than the strings of lights that are manufactured today, and to truly have an authentic looking vintage style Christmas tree, you should collect vintage Christmas lights as well as vintage and antique Christmas ornaments.

Vintage Christmas Light Reflectors
One item that would help create a vintage looking Christmas tree is a collection of vintage Christmas tree aluminum light reflectors. These reflectors come in varying shapes, colors, and sizes, and are designed to reflect back the individual Christmas lights to increase the light, and sparkle on the Christmas tree.
I found a lot of these reflectors on Ebay, of which I listed some on this page. This would be a very fun addition to the glitter of a vintage Christmas tree.

Vintage Christmas Lights Sizes
Just like today, vintage Christmas lights came in varying sizes and shapes. Some manufacturers had their own designations or you can search via bulb size. Ebay sellers often list the size of the bulbs, along with the bulb string length for comparison to what you already have.
If you are going to want the vintage Christmas lights to actually light up, make sure you look on the listing for the fact that the vintage lights actually work. Some people might be interested in the vintage lights for recycling into new art forms, or Christmas crafts.
If you are not sure, you can contact the seller on Ebay and ask them whatever questions you have.

Vintage and Antique Christmas Lanterns
There are some very beautiful single vintage and antique Christmas light that are meant for a lamp or a stand alone lantern. Some are actually lanterns in themselves.
These single bulbs are often handmade and hand painted, real collector’s items. Others house a light bulb, so that they are more like a lamp shade, than a lamp themselves. These are usually under $10.00, and can add a lot of vintage atmosphere to your Christmas theme.

Vintage Santa Claus Christmas Lights
One of my personal favorite vintage Christmas light types are the Santa Claus shaped light bulbs and strings of light bulbs. Vintage Christmas lights are also available in other Christmas character shapes. I just love the look of the little Santa Claus heads, floating in the branches of the Christmas tree, amid the vintage ornaments.
These light bulbs are usually made of glass or plastic, which are often hand painted, on milk glass or opaque glass, although you can also find them in plastic. You can also find vintage Santa Claus head covers to fit over modern light bulb strings. These add a lot of fun ambiance to your vintage Christmas tree. And they are also reasonable in price from about $10.00 to $20.00.
