This Uniquely Colorful DIY Wood Sign Using Mini Bottle Brush Trees will be perfect as part of your Christmas Decor.
I really can’t believe that we are almost midway November which means December is literally right around the corner!!
If you still haven’t started your holiday decor that is completely fine as today I will be showing you not only this Bottle Brush Tree Wood Sign but several other gorgeous Wood Signs if you keep on reading till the end.
As I mentioned in my last post that every week leading up to Christmas I will be posting DIY Holiday Projects as part of being in “Deck The Home” Challenge group.
Every week there is a theme and this week’s theme is DIY Wood Sign. I know my DIY is not a sign per se but I think it conveys the message pretty clearly without having any text to it. What do you think?
Let’s jump right into today’s project!
Materials Needed for DIY Bottle Brush Trees Christmas Decor
Tutorial for DIY Bottle Brush Trees Christmas Decor
So I used a wood piece which was roughly the size 10 by 7 inches if I remember correctly.
It was wood from a previous craft I had done hence the paint colors already on it.
I decided to stain it in this deep coffee color which I used on my last project as well, DIY Door Decor using Paper Cones.
I applied it with the paintbrush and then using a piece of cloth rubbed off the excess from the wood. This leaves behind the gorgeous stained wood look.
My next step was to give the wood piece a nice little border and that I did using Yarn.
This step was really simple but added such a nice clean look. I used my hot glue gun and some leftover Yarn that I glued all around the four sides.
This Yarn I have used on so many projects, my favorite has to be this DIY Anthropologie Inspired Lamp Makeover.
First off these mini brush trees are just adorable!
You can use it for so many things in your DIY Ornaments, Door Wreath and as I will show you guys today how I used it as a Wood Sign for Christmas.
These were the four main colors I used in this DIY. Two shades of blue and two shades of pink.
The way I painted these bottle brush trees was in no way to fully cover them as I still wanted the green to peek through.
So I just dabbed on a few drops of paint with a paintbrush and painted all the mini trees.
Lay them out on a flat surface and let it dry.
The way I was going to glue the bottle brush trees was in fact in the shape of a “Christmas Tree”
Which is very easy to do. I started off with 5 bottle brush trees at the base and then as I went up I reduced the number until it was only one bottle brush tree at the top.
I used the same hot glue gun and attached the trees onto the stained wood piece.
And there you have it.
