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 love this deep maroon/wine color. It’s so elegant with a hint of sparkle!
I am excited to pair these trees with my new Merry Christmas Watercolor Garland on our mantel.

Thank you to Martha Stewart for providing the amazing glitter in today’s project.
