Bottle brush tree decor: 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 little bottle brush trees.
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.

Bottle Brush Tree Decor Tutorial
I could have spray painted my 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 thick 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 a 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.

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!
