Dyeing bottle brush trees was such a fun project and fool proof. Seriously anyone can do this.
I started with Tim Holtz Bottle Brush trees. They are a nice, natural color making it so easy to dye the color you prefer. If you have green trees simply soak them in bleach until they are a neutral color.
To dye: I used Tim Holtz Distress Reinkers. All the colors are incredible: Spun Sugar was one of my favorites and Peacock Feathers.
You can use anything to dye including mist colors you already have, RIT dye, fruit, or seriously even kool aid.
For dyeing one tree: I filled a 2 ounce bottle halfway with water then a 3/4 full droppper of ink. (Watch video below for hands on.)
