Vintage Bottle Brush Tree's

Christmas and crafting go hand in hand, every holiday season we make lots of crafts. I went to Joann Fabrics and they took FOREVER to cut my fabric. There was about 33 people ahead of me, all with baskets full of fabric and hopeful ambitions to get it all done.
Anyway, I LOVE vintage bottle brush trees but they are really expensive, so I started making my own.
 I bought a bag of these tree's used for those little houses and Christmas scenes and some cute little containers from Hobby Lobby. I then bleached the trees. Some I dyed other colors, but some I left white.
 I added some  cute scrap booking stickers to them and created my own little forest!! 
 I also added some fake snow to the inside of the bottles with some glitter, to add that wintry sparkle. You know I add glitter whenever I can!!
You should try and create your own little vintage forest wonderland, if your not local, message me and I can mail them!

Merry Crafting!!!

  1. Very cute and they look simple enough that even a non-crafty person like me could do them :)
