Colorful Christmas Trees are easy to make using brush bottle trees aka sisal trees. You can dye them any shade or color that you can find in the store. Such a fun way to add bright colors to Christmas Decoration.

Christmas is such a magical and wonderful time of year. So much festivities and so many fun things to do.

I have always loved the decorations. But, I’ve toned it down a few years ago because I’ve either been pregnant or just had a new baby and so my energy level is low and can make me a little Grinch-y. But as my kids have gotten older, their Christmas spirit is contagious and I have started doing more because of them. So with some trees from JOANN, I decided to make some colorful trees.

I’ve been wanting to do colorful trees for years, but haven’t got around to it. But this year, I decided it was time to finally make some. The Christmas tree is my favorite decoration because it means everlasting life that Christ can bring to us. I just love how the decorations can give us that constant reminder.

How to Dye Brush Bottle Christmas Trees


RITDye – I got the denim blue, navy blue, green and  wine colors

Cup for water
I also made a fun video below to go with the instructions below:

Dyed Christmas Trees Supplies

Step 1: Bleach Trees

Add a ¼ cup water to every cup of bleach. Soak trees until most of the color is gone. A couple of my trees bleached to yellow, but they still dyed just fine. Rinse trees well in water

Step 2: Dye Trees

Mix 1 tsp to 1 cup really hot water (really hot tap works fine, but I used boiling water). Dip trees for 10-30 seconds. The longer they’re in the dye the darker and more vibrant the colors. TO get a variation in colors, just dip in one type of blue and then dip in a green color. This will make more teal colors.

Step 3: Rinse

Once you’re happy with your colors, rinse trees in water until the water runs clear. Let trees dry.
