What do you know, another bottle brush tree! This is a gift for the friend who pretty much introduced me to bottle brush trees! I asked her what colors she could use in her Christmas decor and she said white/off-white/gold are always good.
It's got 360 degree views! That way it can be set in a window sill, on a counter top or where ever and still look finished.
And what do you know, I just happen to have a "gold" door knob to set it it that just happen to have come from her house! WHAT!? Yup, a few years ago she gave me a couple of doors that we stored in her attic and no longer needed so I could build Satan's Throne. http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=393303.0 That old story.
Annnnnd I didn't think about all the weight the "ornaments" would add so it was kind of too heavy for the door knob. OOPSIE! I used the lid to a small cheese box to make a wider base. Painted with "brass" acrylic paint and topped with Snow Tex painted with pearl acrylic paint.
And on the bottom a stamped label so she'll always remember where it came from. I just realized that I didn't date it! D'oh! It's all wrapped and packaged for a less-than-one-week-late delivery though, so... yeah.
