It is finally time to create the bottle brush tree decorations I've been acquiring bits and bobs for over the last couple of years. Here are three of the first completed ones.



Each of them on there own.

A tiny candle stick, a premade bow, and a tree dyed purple with purple glitter. it's about 4" (10+ cm) tall.


A salt shaker with 3 kinds of glitter inside, some ribbon, a dyed green tree with iridescent snowflake "glitter". It's about 6" (15+ cm) tall.

(I've tried to make this right-side-up, but no dice. Meh.)

A brass-plated candle stick, upholstery tassel trim, dyed pink tree with antique gold glitter. It's about 10" (25+ cm) tall.


I hope to get a few more made soon, with a more whimsical vibe.

Beautiful combinations of colors and vintage goodies.  You can't have too many tiny trees.

They all are very pretty, the brass-plated candle stick one looks so regal, I like the purple tree and bow, my favorite is the green one with the snowflakes.
