I’m kinduva big fan of bottle brush trees so this year I wanted to find an easy way to make them into cute Christmas ornaments for my 12 Days of Ornaments series! These ornaments are adorable but I wish I had found COLORFUL bottle brush trees to use instead, so that would be my tip… if you can make these with colorful ornaments, do it! Reminder that I’ve linked ALL the materials I’ve used for my 12 Days of Ornaments series in my Amazon shop so head over there if you want to purchase any and all supplies!

Step 1. Paint the mini pots

Using craft paint, give the mini pots a coat of paint. Let dry.

Step 2. Attach the twine

Cut one length of twine (or ribbon) to about 24-inches, fold it over and tie the ends together. Add a wooden bead and then thread the folded end through the hole in the bottom of the terra cotta pot so that the pot is now resting on the wooden bead. With two small beads of hot glue, attach the twine to either inside edge of the pot.

Step 3. Glue the bottle brush tree in place

Remove the bottle brush tree from its little wooden base. Usually you can just unscrew it. Glue two beads into the bottom of the terra cotta pot to elevate the bottle brush tree inside the pot. Glue the bottle brush tree into the top wooden bead.

Step 4. Finish the bottle brush ornaments

I used a tiny bit of polyfill to stuff around the base of the pot, but I’m sure there are other more imaginative options you could reach for!

To finish the hanging loop, tie a knot, add a bead and then tie another knot at the top of the twine.
