Glitter Bottle Brush Trees

In case you missed it over the weekend, I shared the color inspiration for ALL my Christmas decor this year!  I’ve done reds + blues, I’ve done bold greens, blacks and golds and this year I’m going bright pastels.  I know that sounds like opposites, bright – pastels… but that’s what I’m doing.  Today is the second installment of bright pastels, how to make these gorgeous Glitter Bottle Brush Trees.  It’s also project number ten in my #12MonthsofMartha series!

I used a small piece of sticky tack to secure my bottle brush trees to a cardboard lid and gave them a quick coat of white spray paint.  I didn’t want dark green to sneak through my glitter.

After the paint had dried, they got another coat using Krylon Spray Adhesive.  Be sure to do all this spraying outside in a ventilated area.

Next came the best part of any project, the part where you just dump gorgeous glitter all over something!  Using each of my colors, I dumped almost the entire container of Martha Stewart Vintage Leaf Glitter onto the trees overtop a paper plate.  Once the tree was sufficiently covered, I could fold my plate in half and return the excess glitter to it’s rightful container.

I had to bribe my 4 year old daughter to not grab these trees and run!  She’s ready to proudly display the pink one in her room, no surprise there.

Glitter Bottle Brush Trees,

I love this deep maroon/wine color.  It’s so elegant with a hint of sparkle!

From overhead all you could see was piles of glitter but there are mini bottle brush trees in there!

I am excited to pair these trees with my new Merry Christmas Watercolor Garland on our mantel.
