I have a slight obsession with bottle brush trees. I mean, what is not to like?! I discovered how to dye my own trees a few years ago, and ever since, I have been dying trees for the Christmas season in a rainbow of colors. I love putting them up on my mantle and kitchen table and I’m always a little sad when it is time to take them down. This year, I decided that I didn’t want to put my bottle brush trees away after Christmas. Who says that they can only be Christmas decorations?
My solution? A Valentine’s Day Village! I pulled out all my trees in various shades of pink and white and created a little village to go with it. I cut the houses with my Cricut (they are Winter Woodland and Anna’s Holiday Images) in pink and red paper, and arranged them on my mantle with the colorful trees. It is the perfect Valentine Village!
So, the moral of the story is, don’t take those bottle brush trees down quite yet! They can add the perfect touch to your Valentine’s Day decor! Maybe I will just have to think of more ways to keep them up all year round! :)
