Decorating & Glittering my Bottle Brush Trees!

I have loved doing bottle brush trees for the past couple of years.  I have collected for the past year, all kinds of containers to put them in.  I look for something that is small and dainty, usually teacups, vintage wooden thread spools, and anything that catches my eye.  I also collect vintage ornaments, vintage glass bead garland, and other vintage items to add to the trees.  Here's some of my trees this year.  I am working on a lot more; my craft table is covered with trees, glitter, vintage ornaments, and misc containers & extras.

Hope you enjoyed seeing my trees half as much as I had making them!  Have a wonderful rest of your week!

So cute! I love them! I was gonna say the tea cup trees are my favorites, but I'm not sure...I really like the ones on the spools of thread! :)

Your trees are absolutely adorable! I love all the wonderful colors and your photos of them are beautiful.
I also love the little snowmen jars in your Etsy shop. I have about 400 jars that are crying out for a snowman head...thanks so much for the inspiration! I "pinned" your snowman to my Christmas board on

It's never too early to think about Christmas and your trees are adorable. I assume that you sell them since you have so many. Where do you find the little trees?
