As I was cleaning out my mom's things, I found a bag of old brush curlers. I was just going to throw them out,but I started pulling them apart and wondered what I could do with them. Most of the nylon netting was disintegrating, but the brushes inside were good...so, here is what I did...

Ta-da! A little cutting, some alcohol ink...and I have tiny trees! I can use them for winter decorations, shrines, etc. I am going to glitter some of them and put fake snow on others...there is a penny for size reference.
When I make a project, I will remind people that I made those little trees from junk!
