Unique Bottle Brush Tree Stands

Several years ago I made some upgraded bottle brush trees. I cut off the stand on the bottom and made them look 100% better by giving them a new base! 

This year I had fun with more unique junky items and neutral bottle brush trees.

Come take a look...

I'm getting ready to put out my Christmas decorations and as I searched through the box of things I've made over the years, I found the bottle brush trees with block stands.

The old trees are getting a little bent but I'll give them a good cleaning and straightening. Anyway, I have a whole box of inexpensive bottle brush trees so these inspired me to create more cute bases with whatever I could find around the workshop.

Here are some other funky trees I've made in the past...

I was off to search through my collection of junk. Here are some of the fun things I found to use as bottle brush tree bases. 

These bases are made from the ends of a curtain rod and of course, a vintage hose nozzle.

These neutral little cuties are glued into small amber jars and decorated with glitter on the top of the trees.

This beautiful gold tree sits on a rusty claw foot that I've had for years. I think it is some kind of foot for a planter. I covered the base with moss and it looks gorgeous in its new home!

Next up is a pretty white tree that I attached to a mini pallet from Dollar Tree. It almost makes me want to make this in full size for my family Christmas tree!

I think this one is my very favorite. This was a broken tape measure with a photo frame top. I removed the glass and glued the tree right inside with a little moss to cover the base.

This one is for all the rusty junk lovers. It is a rusty old pulley. I glued the tree right to the top and covered the original base with Spanish moss

You may recognize the base to this pretty white tree. It is a small candle from Anthropologie, I try not to throw anything beautiful away!

And lastly, these small green trees sit inside large colored wooden beads. They look very festive with the bright colored bases.
