How To Colour Bottle Brush Trees [DIY Video]


Today I have another easy DIY video for you. It's kinda hard to find these cute little bottle brush trees in another colour than green here in The Netherlands. So I decided to look into ways to do it myself. It turns out it's a pretty simple processes. In this video I show you how to colour bottle brush trees without using ink.



Supplies:
Bottle brush trees 
Bleach
Acrylic paints
Food colouring
Containers
Bowls (not plastic)
Artificial snow
Pair of Tongs






Tips:
I got my bottle brush trees at Action. I have seen them also at different garden centres. When using acrylic paints make sure to water the paint down a little before painting your trees with a small paintbrush. That makes for a more even coat.

Till next time
