I needed some bottle brush trees in fun colors for some upcoming projects I will be working on. I did some searching online for colored trees and stumbled upon a post (sorry not sure from where now) saying I can dye my own trees. So I bought some white trees and some dye and did it!
You will need white bottle brush trees, fabric dye, a plastic cup, and a plate for drying.
I used Rit dye for my trees. This teal is in liquid form which I really liked and the pink was the powder most people are used to.
Fill your plastic cup up with water and add some dye. You don't need much of either the liquid or the powder since you are using such a small amount of water.
Dip your tree in. These trees soak up the dye very quickly so only dip it for a few seconds then pull it out to check on the color. If you want it darker then continue to dip for a few seconds then checking.
Put your trees on a paper plate and let them dry.
Have fun using them in your wintry crafts!
