It’s no secret I love bottle brush trees and I’m always thinking of creative ways to display them during the holidays. Sometimes the smallest detail can make a big difference. I haven’t used up all my ideas yet for displaying bottle brush trees, which is a good thing. I can use the ideas next year!
Bottle Brush Trees in a Box
I have the perfect size, white little boxes that hold my larger bottle brush trees. It’s like finishing off your big Christmas tree with a skirt.
Place tiny Christmas trees in a shadow box to act like a frame.
Corral a group of trees in a simple crate and place on a table.
You can also use a cigar box to create a vintage holiday tree display. Decoupage or paint the cigar box, fill with epsom salt or faux snow, and position your trees inside with a fun little snowman or Santa.
Bottle Brush Trees on a Plate or Tin
Using a vintage ironstone plate, metal tin, or even a slice of wood to cradle Christmas trees is probably my favorite way to display my favorite holiday decoration.
Sometimes I use both a plate and a tin at the same time.
A slice of wood proudly supports a gathering of light green bottle brush trees; the newest in my ever-growing collection.
Paper Mache Pots for Christmas Trees
I love paper mache anything and when I find pots small enough to hold a bottle brush tree or two, all the better! This one’s been painted and embellished with script font reading The First Noel.
You might remember this line-up of trees from my Christmas Home Tour.
Paper mache boxes are another creative way to display tiny trees. Decorate the box with scrapbook paper and hot glue the tree on top of the lid. Easy to make and they’re great for holding tiny gifts like jewelry.
Other Handy Vessels and Ideas
Use ordinary items from around the house to display bottle brush trees. Small gravy boats are perfect!
Votive candle holders are also perfectly sized to hold your bottle brush trees.
Of course, tiny trees look wonderful under a cloche (and they’re protected from furry friends).
Of course, bottle brush trees look great all on their own!
Do you like the green or white bottle brush trees best?
