I’ll let you in on a secret. I’ve been working on these bottle brush trees for about a year. So, in 2017, I worked on bleaching some trees, and I found out that not all bottle brush trees are created equal. In 2018, I tried a ton of ways to dye these little trees and I found a few interesting things. Hop on over to my bottle brush tree tutorial to find out what I have learned about these cuties. I always research every craft in depth, and I’m happy to pass along my knowledge to you. Well, this concludes my countdown of our top posts of 2018. Here is to a great year!
