About this Project
Create a shimmering, textured forest of vintage-look bottle brush trees as a perfect focal point or accent to your holiday décor.
Create your own holiday scene, snap a few pictures, and share them using #ACMooreInspired.
1Drill a small hole in each wood cube. Then, paint the various sizes of wood cubes using the Gold and Silver metallic paint and set them aside to dry.
2Spray trees in desired colors of Glimmer Mist, then let dry.
3Follow the instructions on the Gold leaf adhesive and apply to each wood block. Allow to dry, and then follow the instructions for applying the Silver and Gold leaf to the matching color wood cube. Cover all sides of the blocks, and then apply the sealer. Let the wood cubes dry completely.
4Remove trees from stands with the wire cutters and hot glue 18 gauge craft wire along the side of the tree trunk. Wrap the trunk with the 22 gauge or 24 gauge craft wire.
5Cut tree wire to desired length and hot glue them into the holes in the wood cubes.
