Supplies you’ll need to dress up bottle brush trees:
- Bottle Brush Trees
- Table Leg
- Fluff Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Caviar Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Honky Tonk Red Dixie Belle Chalk Paint
- Tobacco Road Voodoo Gel
- Paint Brush
- Gator Sander Tool
- Pom-Pom Ribbon
To begin, you’ll need to remove the base from each of the bottle brush trees you’ll be using.
Next, measure a table leg or spindle into even sections for cutting. Then, use a saw to cut the pieces you just measured off. These will be used as the new base for each tree.
Now, use a drill to create a hole for the end of the bottle brush to sit in.
Once all of the tree and base prep is done, it’s time to paint.
I started by using Tobacco Road Voodoo Gel which made the base perfectly match a basic green tree with snow.
Then I used Honky Tonk Red, added a white tree and some red pom-pom ribbon.
I also distressed mine a bit using sand paper, but you can skip this step if you don’t want the distressing.
I continued painting the bases, adding trees and ribbon until I had a finished set. You could also make them all match. It’s totally up to you!
This one has a black base with a gold tree.
This one has a white base with a gold tree.
For this one I did a white base and added some black dry brushing.
And don’t forget the pom-pom ribbon!
This is what my finished set looks like. Aren’t they just perfect!?!
You could also use lots of other things as a base! Get creative and use what you already have.
I hope this idea inspires you to create something for your home this season!
