Bottle brush tree decor is so beautiful! Here is a little decor idea that only takes minutes to put together.
Do you have a pie tin collecting dust in your house, or maybe your Grandma’s house?
When I needed a centerpiece for my Christmas tablescape, I decided to create an easy one with one of my vintage pie tins and a group of bottle brush trees and a glass cloche.
I collect vintage pie tins and have been wanting to make something out of one for a while, and I just love the look of cute little bottle brush trees.

All you need for this easy centerpiece are these supplies. You can find them in crafts stores or definitely on Amazon. I added some links to the items.

Supplies for the kind of pie tin stand I created with a pie tin and candle holder and a cloche:
Pie tin like this one:
fake or real greenery and pine cones
short candle holder or incense holder (like I used) or silver or galvanized cup
Or buy this pretty cloche with galvanized base.
If you don’t want to bother with a pie tin, I also happened to see this galvanized stand that is very similar to my vintage pie tin:

I could have spray painted my vintage pie tin, but that would have taken away from the vintage character, which I wanted to preserve.
Glue dots are my best friends. I use them to fix ornaments, center pictures on the wall, repair things, hold garlands in place — and I used them to easily glue down the little bottle brush trees on the pie tin.
I added three, one for each of us, added a hand full of the fake snow, the cloche, and then the greenery and pine cones on the outside of the cloche.
I wanted to put the pie tin onto a pedestal, and I tried out different candle holders.
Whatever you use as a base, make sure it’s wide enough so it doesn’t tip over from the weight of the pie tin and everything on it and not too tall so that the pie tin is stable on it. You don’t want it to be knocked over.
This white incense burner I bought at a thrift store was perfect as my base, and as you can see, I simply added three glue dots to the rim before I put the pie tin on top of it.
I could have glued it on as well, but that would have taken a lot longer. I like the instant result of using the glue dots.
There you have it: my easy Christmas bottle brush tree centerpiece with a vintage pie tin and candle stick!
What I like about this candle stick is that you can put a tea light into the bottom – isn’t this pretty? Another thrift store find that came in handy.

Update: This DIY project has gone viral on Hometalk, so much so that I was asked to host one of their Facebook Live shows to make three more of these easy centerpieces.
You can see how they turned out here, and you get to see me make them right in our living room!
