Bottle Brush Trees


You'll need: 
Bottle Brush Trees (any local craft store)
Bleach
Water
Large Cup 
Tongs

You'll be so surprised at how easy and affordable this Christmas decor is. 
First, find a cup that fits your tallest bottle brush tree. Fill your cup half way with bleach and fill the rest with water. Place your tree in the mixture and let soak until you have reached your desired color. I really love the "mint" color that I achieved here but if you want it to be all white, keep soaking the tree. The white color will allow you to dye or spray paint your tree. Use your tongs to get the tree out of the mixture and run your tree under cold water. Place on a paper towel to let dry. Told you that was simple!
