Bottle brush trees can add instant vintage Christmas to any area of your home! I adore using them in vignettes and Christmas crafts. Whether you go overboard with an all-out holiday decorating extravaganza or if you just want to add a little Christmas magic around your home, use bottle brush trees to create vintage Christmas Today I am sharing some ideas for creating vintage Christmas vignettes with bottle brush trees and a few bottle brush Christmas craft ideas.
Creating a Cozy Christmas with Vintage Christmas Vignettes
I tucked a bottle brush tree, Shiny Brite ornaments and vintage tinsel in my grandmother’s antique lunch pail and set up a larger bottle brush tree and a tiny ivory tree with some vintage treasure to create a sentimental and charming vintage Christmas vignette.
Two tiny pink bottle brush trees nestled in mini tarnished silverplate tea pots look purrfect with one of my favorite antique Christmas postcards.
Bottle brush trees come in all colors and sizes. Whether they are retro bluish-green, bright and festive colors, soft and muted, ivory or bleached, I love them all! When creating a vignette, look for ornaments or accessories with similar colors to the bottle brush trees you have on hand.
Staggering bottle brush trees in varying sizes look beautiful creates an illusion of a little Christmas forest.
Consider using unusual items such as vintage urns, trophies, tins garden pots or architectural salvage as bases for displaying bottle brush trees.

I so love all these ideas. So adorable. I really wonder, though, how people store them so they don’t get smashed?!December 22, 2020 at 7:45 am
I put my small ones upright in ornament storage boxes in the individual spots for the ornaments and that has worked well. I have a few vintage tins that I can store them upright in as well. This seems to work for me!December 22, 2020 at 4:40 pm

Ahhhhhhh!!! This is just what I needed, Amber. Lovely, happy Christmas trees! <3 So glad you linked up at Share Your Style a week ago as I am happy to feature your post at this week's SYS #328 for you. <3
I am TIRED from school (as I am sure you are also, though music MUST be such a happy comfort… I love taking our PABS kids to Music each week – I'm finally learning about music from our elementary teacher, who is always happy to share what he knows! I get WAY more out of it than the kids, but it's great for me!!! Plus I get to sing and sometimes quietly harmonize with Mr. Miller when he sings to the kids. He doesn't seem to mind. 😉 ) Anyway, visiting your blog is such a treasure for me…
Thank you for the beauty you create,December 11, 2021 at 9:15 am
