Making Bottle Brush Trees is so so easy.
They are also so much fun to have around your house at Christmas time. You really can’t have too many because they are small enough to put anywhere. You can squeeze them in to any little decor setting, and they add just the right amount of Christmas.
The best part about them is you can dye them any color you want.
What you need:
A package of bottle brush trees:
I bought mine at Hobby Lobby and used a coupon so I paid $5.
Bleach/ Latex gloves
Rit Dye in colors of your choice
Paper plates and paper towels
You can also buy beads if you want to embellish them a little more. I bought mine in the necklace beading section @hobby lobby:
One last thing to consider is if you like the look of glitter on the branches. If so, then you would want to buy spray adhesive, and glitter as well.
If you like the look of the trees with the wooden bases, you can order a set of them here. I kind of prefer these, but wanted to get this fun tutorial out for y’all.
Ok y’all I have made a quick 1 minute video to show you how to make these amazing bottle brush trees. It’s so so easy:
Here are some fun ideas of what you can do with them:
You can add them to any little display!!
I decided to make this little project out of the new ones I just made:
Here are a few ideas from people on Pinterest. You can also follow my Bottle brush tree board that I have created on Pinterest.
Look at how cute these look all lined up on the mantle:
You can also use them to make a snow globe. We have done this at out house. Our kids love to do this. It is super fun at a party.
They are really fun to put under a cloche, or even on a cake plate. Check this one out:
One last idea is adding them to a wreath. Check out how Amy Bell from Positively Splendid did hers:
I hope you love making these bottle brush trees as much as I do. I have already ordered some with the wooden bases, and I am patiently waiting for them to come. I can’t wait to make more.
