Everything You Need to Know About Bottle Brush Trees

I'm excited to talk to you about my new favorite Christmas decoration...

Bottle Brush Trees!!

Are you a fan??

I've always collected fun green Christmas trees, but now I'm adding bottle brush trees to our decor.   I know there are fun vintage bottle brush trees out there.  I don't own any of those.  All of mine are new.

I just love them.  They are not fragile (ie kid friendly).  There are so many styles and varieties.  And they are very affordable.  They seem to be popping up in every store this year.  I've been scouting them out for you and am eager to tell you about where you can find great bottle brush trees for yourself.

I've had the best luck finding trees at Hobby Lobby, TJ Maxx, Target and Walmart.  Most of the trees were under $12 at all of those stores.

I like to find trees of different heights, colors, shades of a certain color, different bases and some trees with ornaments.  There really are a ton of varieties out there.

Let me give you a little bottle brush tree tour.

Here's my Peppermint Palace set up.  Isn't it sweet??  hahaha
The house lantern is from the Better Home and Gardens line at Walmart.  I got it back in the Fall.  It's been so much fun to decorate for all the holidays.  The ivory and gold tree and the large red and ivory tree are both Opal House from Target.  The little red trees are from Hobby Lobby.

 This cute set of ornament trees were $2 each at Walmart this week. 

Fletcher has this set of trees in his room.
The tall tree, red tree and green tree are all from Hobby Lobby.
The light blue and gold tree is Opal House from Target and the ornament tree is from Walmart.

Olive has this set of pink trees.
The tall ornament tree is from TJ Maxx last year.
The rose gold tree is Opal House from Target.
The hot pink, ivory and little pink ornament tree is from Hobby Lobby.
And the small pink and red ornament tree is from Walmart.

 This set of mini trees lives in my kitchen window.

Here's what you should keep an eye out for in stores right now:

The bottle brush trees are all in bins.  Be prepared to dig a little bit.  They're a GREAT price and definitely worth the effort.    They are easy to straighten if they're bend and can usually be fluffed up a bit.  There were lots of varieties of small trees - ornaments, flocked, glitter and solid color.  I saw some Wal-Mart stores had bigger bottle brush trees this year, but my store did not.

TJ Maxx:
My store had LOTS of options for bottle brush trees.  I came home with two of these green ones.  They were just $5.99 and were a really good size.  There were pink, white and green options at my store.

Local Boutique:
We have a local store called Jeffrey Alans.  It's got really great home decor, but it can be pricey.  I loved their bottle brush tree selection.  However, most of them were out of my price range at $20+.  I'm going to keep an eye out to see if they clearance them out before Christmas and try to snag one on a super sale.

These are the pretty Opal House trees from Target that I mentioned above.  I love them.  BUT I have a disclaimer... they were a pain to order.  They were initially listed online as a set of 4 for $9.99.  However, they were supposed to be $9.99 per tree.  They were deleted online and I think they're back again now.  That's still a great deal, but it was a major hassle to get my order right and get a refund.  So watch for them in stores and be prepared to pay $9.99 a tree.  They're really tall and feel special.  If you can find them in stores, I would say pick them up!

Hope you have a great weekend!!  We've got fun plans to do Christmas things, go to a birthday party, do our North Pole Breakfast and go to a gingerbread house decorating party.  Should be tons of fun!

  1. I've been obsessed for years and have quite the collection. Had NO idea they were being sold so widely this year! Need to go shop!

  2. I really need to step up my bottle brush game! I only have 6 or so from target in shades of white, green and gold! I love all of yours.

  3. I found some at the Target Dollar Spot and I was pumped! I have them in my bathroom and I hope to grow my collection!


I LOVE hearing from you!! Thanks for taking the time to leave sweet comments; I enjoy reading every one of them.
