Purchase a wire toilet brush and use wire cutters to cut the brush. The handle is no longer needed.
Straighten the wire brush. Cut the brush into shorter lengths - a tall and a short piece.
Next, cut the base with a saw to get square pieces in the measurement of 2 1/2″ x 2 1/2″. For the base, find the center of the board by drawing with a speed square from one corner to another. Then, drill a hole in the base 3/4 of the way through. Add tape to the end of the drill bit so you can easily know how far down to drill.
Sand down the base. Make sure your brush wires are straight.
Next, use scissors to trim into the shape of a tree. I started at the top by cutting the top brush pretty much to the wire. I cut the brush on an angle from the middle to the top. Hot glue to the base.
Spray paint the color of your choice. Let them dry and add a second coat of spray paint.
