The chillier weather has prompted me to think about my Christmas projects. I bought these little trees at Hobby Lobby for 99c. They have them in all sizes so it's hard not to go Hog-Wild!
Last year I learned how to bleach sisal bottle brush Christmas trees from Shanda over at Front Porches, then the other day I was reading Karla's blog at Karla's Cottage and saw her beautiful "Tree Farm". Bleaching the trees is so easy.
I simply mixed a solution of bleach and water, approx 1:4 ratio, then dipped the trees. I let them soak until they were the color I wanted. It took about 15 min, maybe a little more for some trees. I just swishled them around every so often.
I took them out and rinsed them well under running water and left them to dry in the dish rack.
