Rustic Bottle Brush Trees
I love bottle brush trees! And I love all of the fun and creative ways people come up with to display them. If you spend any time on Pinterest or Instagram, you’ve probably seen at least a few examples of adorable bottle brush tree vignettes.
I’m putting a rustic spin on displaying my bottle brush trees this year.
Bottle Brush Tree in Bucket
First up is this very tiny – and very cute – bottle brush tree, which is only 2.5 inches tall. I purchased a wee little 1-inch tall bucket in the miniatures section of the craft store. I cut out two small squares of burlap, overlapped them, and pushed them down into the bucket to gather around the base of the tree.
Now I have an instant rustic look that would be perfect in a miniature garden or terrarium! Can you imagine this displayed outside of a rustic-looking fairy house or miniature log cabin?
Bottle Brush Tree in Rustic Wheelbarrow
Remember my miniature rustic wheelbarrow tutorial I shared here in September? (That’s OK if you don’t: just click the link in the previous sentence to see!)
After using it to display Fall decorations, the wheelbarrow is now holding a sweet 4-inch bottle brush tree.
I topped the tree with a silver foil snowflake, which I adhered using Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue.
I love how both of these tiny trees look, and I can keep them out beyond the Christmas holiday too.
How about you? Are you displaying any bottle brush trees among your decorations this season?
Happy holiday crafting!
