~Over the coarse of TWO DAYS I worked and worked at trying my hand at BLEACHING, DYING and MAKING BOTTLE BRUSH TREES~
~I do not recommend DYING THE TREES once they are BLEACHED....THEY TURN OUT REALLY CRAZY COLORS, LIKE THE ONE ABOVE and BELOW~
~Overall, my COLORED Bottle Brush Christmas Trees turned out pretty cute~
~I was more IMPRESSED with the ones that I just BLEACHED.....this process took over 3 hours and I still had to pick out pieces of green color, this project is just that, A PROJECT, and way too much work for what it's worth....I suggest, JUST PAY THE MONEY and BUY THE ONES ALREADY ON ETSY.COM~
~STILL SWEET for the SHABBY COTTAGE CHRISTMAS HOUSE~
~The tree in the cup was my first one....I quickly learned that you need to use the BIG BALLS on the BOTTOM and progress them upward with the little ones at the top~
~I ended up using almost ALL of my years of collecting Vintage Feather Tree Ornaments for all 11 Trees.....COSTING ME WAY TOO MUCH MONEY to make these eleven trees, that does not include the bleach, food coloring, vinegar, glue gun and sticks, trees and the time it took me to make them...LOL~
Overall.....They all turned out CUTE......
AND I am going to be giving ONE of them away.
I will post the giveaway this week so stay tuned!!!!
Make it a great week!!!!
Love and Hugs, Amy
