Collecting or owning vintage ceramic trees has always been an enjoyable experience. It has also grown in demand as the vintage trend immersed over the past couple of years. However, accessories such as lights, bulbs, stars and even the base itself can break or not look as great over time Maybe you’re looking for a few replacement items like ceramic Christmas tree lights.
Unlike my ceramic Christmas trees list, this will be a short guide where I show you a few replacement lights, bulbs, tree bases and other accessories that you might need to spruce up or fix your Xmas decoration. All the products on this list are available for sale on Amazon. Apart from the three bases that I’ve listed, you’ll find that the lights and other accessories don’t cost much. So without stretching this any further, let’s take a closer look.
Replacement Lights & bulbs
CAS Plastic Bulbs
I thought that I would start the list with the simplest and most general replacement lights I could find. However, don’t think these are just your run of the mill plastic bulbs. They are pretty popular on Amazon with many reviews to back them.
These replacement lights are what they call non-electric meaning you need to place them inside the holes of your tree which is illuminated from within. Most products on this list are this way. If you’ve found this page, I’m sure you’ll understand what I’m saying.
Each package contains 100 assorted color light bulbs. These are great and probably the most traditional shape, color and style used all around.
Light up bird bulbs
With this set of accessories, you get a bunch of bird-shaped ceramic Christmas tree bulbs. When you want to spruce up your decoration piece and try an alternatively shaped decoration, this might be your answer. You might be wondering why I do not mention the exact number of items contained in each package?
Well, unfortunately, the product owner does not state exactly how many units of these plastic bulbs come in each package. This is strange, but if you have your heart set on getting these bird-shaped decorations, I advise you to read the reviews and comments on the product page for information from other buyers if this is an issue for you. It’s affordable, so I don’t think it matters much.
Assorted colors globe shaped lights
Here’s another oddly or unique shaped light/bulb decoration: the globe-shaped bulb. The decorative light items have very long stems which I believe will be vital to keeping it from falling out of the ornament.
With each order, you get 200 of these plastic items in many different colors. By the looks of it, this includes transparent white, blue, purple, red, orange, green and pink.
Make sure to check dimensions of the items and whole sizes of your lights before you order.
Creative Hobbies crystal clear lights
Some people like to go overboard when it comes to Xmas decorating, and other follow a principle of less is more or might appeal to an elegant approach. I’m not opposed to multicolored accessories; I’m just saying I can understand the appeal these transparent bulbs might have.
Maybe you’ve got the world’s most “busy” and brightly colored ceramic Xmas tree and just want something plain to go with it. Well, that’s what you get with this set of bulbs.
This product from Creative Hobbies provides you with 144 medium twist plastic transparent bulbs. As they’ve also mentioned, these are ideal for giving your vintage tree a new look! Strangely enough, these are probably my favorite lights on the list.
Blossom flower replacement lights
With these bunch of plastic lights, you get a range of beautiful bright colored objects that are designed in the shape of a flower. Again, I’ve only added these for some variation on your Christmas decorations.
You might need to contact the product owner or take a close look at the product listing page to see the exact dimensions of these items since again it isn’t mentioned. Hopefully, this will change in the future.
Depending on whether you used a DIY kit or however your ceramic ornament is designed you might need a new base. Heck, for all I know it could have fallen or the base is just beyond repair. Thankfully you can get a base separately on Amazon for a relatively small price. There aren’t much separating these products from each other, and there isn’t much to write about if I have to be honest. Instead, I’ve created a simple table to display them below. Here are three units I’ve found on Amazon that might be worth your time in an assorted
Pelton Crafts green large base
Mirage76 Nowell white base
Mirage76 Holland green triangular base
Other ceramic Xmas tree accessories
Plastic stars pack
The only other accessories I could think of adding to this list was this pack of plastic stars. It’s such a small ornament, but most Xmas decorations whether real or ceramic aren’t complete without a star or something significant at the top.
Whether it’s a little kid or even grown up, the star or top ornament is always the thing that gets played with and touched the most. This means it’s probably one of the first pieces that get lost or broken.
Here’s a pack of 10 plastic stars in an assortment of different colors to fix just that and prepare for any future mishaps.

As I said, this is just a small list compared to all the products available on Amazon. I simply listed the ceramic Xmas tree lights, accessories, and bulbs that seemed the most attractive. Very often a lot of the products are the same which makes for a very dull list and not much to say or write about. Either way, I sincerely hope you find the accessories needed to revamp your ceramic decorations in time for Xmas!
