    How To DIY Colorful Bottle Brush Trees

    How To Make Colorful Bottle Brush Trees | Dip Dye Trees | Oh Lovely Day

    You may be seeing these colorful little bottle brush trees all over Pinterest and Instagram this holiday season. They are even selling them at Anthropologie. But if you don’t want to spend the money on ones that are already made, I’m sharing how to DIY them yourself. And they are easy! Warning: these are way addicting and if you are making them for gifts you are going to want to keep them for yourself.

    What you’ll need:

    • Bleached bottle brush trees (make them here)
    • Rit dye (or pretty much any kind of dye you want to use) I used this one and this one.
    • a cup taller than your largest tree
    • rubber gloves
    • paper towels

    How to make them:

    1. First, you need to make sure you have bleached your trees, per my tutorial here.
    2. Once your bleached trees are dry they are ready to dye.
    3. Mix your colors. I used half liquid Rit dye, 1/2 hot water in a plastic cup.
    4. Dip your tree. You can dip dye them half way for a color blocked effect or dye them all the way for a bit, then halfway for a bit longer for an ombré effect.
    5. After you’ve dyed it the way you like, rinse in cold water till water runs clear.
    6. Stand trees on paper towel to dry (I lined a cookie sheet with paper towels to dry mine so I could move them to another location easily if necessary)
    7. Let dry for a few hours or overnight.

    Aren’t these just the happiest little trees? There are so many ways you can use them for holiday decor – I love just lining them up and displaying them on a shelf or mantle. And I’m sharing my two favorite ways to incorporate them into gifts in the coming days, so come back for more reasons to make these (as if you needed them!) And follow along on instagram for more DIY sneak peeks and Pinterest for lots of ideas on what to do with these guys.
