Bottle Brush Tree Crafts

If you want a fast and easy way to decorate around the house think about maybe having bottle brush trees. They are so cute!! I just can’t get enough of them and I can’t stop myself from buying them when ever I see them. I go to every retail store looking for them and I get very disappointed when they don’t have them. However, I did find a few at world market and they look so cute that I could not help myself. I Also got a few smaller ones from last year that I use to decorate my tea cups. I got the tea cups at anthropology.

I grabbed some fake snow and place it inside the tea cups and placed my little bottle brush trees in them and on top of them.

You can also make your very own colored bottle brush trees if you want to. You can find craft bottle brush tree at your local craft store they are by Ranger Tim Holtz. He made them so that you can die them in any color you want. They can by single package or six on a pack of bottle brush tree crafts. I have few of them but I was so scare on coloring them. However, I did take the plunge finally and they came out so cute. I decided to do a candy cane tree and just focus on the painting the red on the tree.

I used tape to cover where I did not want the paint to go and use distress paint with water.  I spray  a couple of coats to get it a little dark. I used berry distress refill stain.
