DIY: Bottle Brush Tree Gift Toppers.

Bottle Brush Tree Gift Toppers
If you couldn't stop yourself from dyeing every little bottle brush tree you could get your hands on (like, ahem, me!) here's a practical idea for your extras: make personalized gift toppers!

Here's what you'll need:
  • Custom-dyed trees made with this tutorial
  • Kraft cardstock
  • Scissors
  • Pen
  • Glue. I used rubber cement and removable glue dots  
  • Ribbon

Cut a few strips of kraft paper about 1/4" wide and 5-6" long. Cut out v-shaped notches in the ends.

Fold it not quite in half and at an angle so you can see both sides.

Write the "to" and "from." Wrap it around the trunk of the tree and add a little bit of rubber cement to hold it closed.

Attach it to your gift! You can tie it with a ribbon or stick it on with a removable glue dot. Super cute!

  2. Why didn't I think of that! Folding it at a slightly off angle, that's so smart! Blame my OCD for always trying to fold symmetrically! Thanks a lot for sharing this idea! :D Love it!
