Rainbow Bottle Brush Trees

Rainbow Bottle Brush Trees are the trendiest thing on the planet right now. I mean I don’t know about you but I would much rather share this with you than talk about ebola or the elections. YAY or NAY.


A while back I was stalking checking out crafty bloggers and I ran across some light pink bottle brush trees used as a “prop” and I thought to myself I can do that! But we all know I can’t stick to just one color and for sure they have to be bright and bold.

I am still trying to figure out my “style” in crafts, decorating and the way I dress. All I will say is BRIGHT, whimsical and CHUNKY make me super duper happy so I bring those same qualities out in my crafting. Hopefully many of you appreciate it and for those that it doesn’t, gosh I am sad for you … Let’s get started!

When you are done with the first color pour the water out (or pour back into the plastic bottle it came in) and start again with your next color.

After the first 4 solid colors I started mixing some shades to get different colors.

Here is a tip. If you like light colors just add a little dye. Don’t worry if you do this and feel they need to be a little darker just add more dye and re-dip your brush. All’s I will say is this shit is addicting.
