I’ll have a blue Christmas.
This year I'm having a blue Christmas, aqua blue that is. It's one of my favorite colors, so why not use it for Christmas too? My friend/co-worker/Carriage House sale partner Sue gave me this rusty aqua blue truck for my birthday last month. It didn't start out in my favorite color, it was originally green. But Sue painted…

Bottle Brush Tree Mantle
This was the year of the bottle brush tree for Christmas decorating at my house. For the mantle, I placed the trees on old books and also attempted to make bottle brush wreaths. I tried to mimick the look of vintage bottle brush trees by bleaching out new inexpensive trees purchased from craft stores, etc. In my opinion, the ones that bleached out the best were the ones in bags. If you find the bags on sale or use a coupon, the trees come out costing about about $1 each or less. To bleach…

How to Make Sisal Bottle Brush Trees - From Scratch! DIY Craft Tutorial
Here's a fun craft project for Christmas: How to make sisal bottle brush trees - from scratch! In this tutorial I'm using green sisal fiber, some floral wire, and a couple clothespins to make some woodsy rustic bottle brush trees for holiday decorating. The sisal fiber is available here, and you can get floral wire just about anywhere. I tried a few different gauges of wire, and liked 20 gauge the best. It's thin enough that it's still easy to twist, but sturdy enough to keep my trees…

Bleaching Bottle Brush Trees
Little forest of bleached bottle brush trees.... I planned to try this last year but never had the time. I found out it is so easy and fast! I used an old plastic dish tub with about 1 cup of bleach and enough warm water to cover the trees. (more trees...use more bleach) Wear rubber gloves to save your hands from the bleach. You can see the bleached trees which only took about 1 hour or less to lose their green color. I was happy with the results so I tossed in a few more trees. When they…
