Bottle Brush Christmas Trees: Best Decor Ideas + Where to Buy Them

Bottle brush Christmas trees are back! These vintage Christmas decorations are coming back in full force and they’re a super easy yet fun way to decorate for the holidays.

I started using bottle brush trees a few years ago and fell in love with them! They’re cute, usually inexpensive and a fun way to style your home for both winter and the holidays!

Last year I ordered a pack of bottle brush trees from Amazon. When they arrived I was so disappointed because they were all smashed and bent up. That’s when I discovered a simple trick to reform them!

All you need to do is run them under warm water and gently turn them in the palm of your hand to reshape them The warm water loosens up the bristles to easily make them look like trees again!

There are so many different ways you can use them from shelf decor to wreath add ons. Below are 5 different ways you can use bottle brush trees as part of your holiday decor!

5 Bottle Brush Christmas Trees Ideas

1. Part of a Forest of Trees

Use your Bottle Brush Christmas Trees in a forest of trees on a shelf
