We can all agree bottle brush trees are the hipster star of Christmas, right? If I recall, they blew up around the same time as Pinterest started showcasing those beautifully retro holiday lofts, so we’ll say that social platform is partly to thank. I’m as addicted to these adorable decorations as the next gal, and they can be spotted all around our house this time of year.
Like them? Bring them to your table! Keep reading for five ways to decorate your table with bottle brush trees this Christmas!
DIY Bottle Brush Place Card Holders
Remember the glass bottle place card holders I made for Thanksgiving? I reused those bitty bottles to make these Christmas-themed versions! It’s super simple: unscrew the base from your bottle brush tree and poke it into the cork of a small bottle filled with artificial snow. Tie your name card to the bottle neck or hang it from the tree.
Large Bottle Brush Table Centerpiece
If you have bottle brush trees of varying sizes, cluster them on your table runner for an easy centerpiece. Bonus points for adding battery-powered LED fairy lights. Tiny garland can fill in bare patches on trees.
Bottle Brushes with Vintage Toys
Vintage toys + twine + bottle brushes = pure holiday magic. Cars and train sets pair wonderfully with mini Christmas trees.
Bottle Brush Place Settings
Slip a bottle brush inside a cloth napkin for a festive and easy place setting.
DIY Bottle Brush Vase Centerpieces
Use clear candle holders or vases—these round ones came with flower arrangements a few years ago—to create tiny, bottle-brush filled winter scenes for your table. Fill the bottom with artificial snow, then place in some bottle brushes and Christmas additions.
