Glittery Bottle Brush Trees


The Christmas season is about the only time of year I really get my glitter on! From about October 1 until the end of January the floors in my house reflect exactly what is going on in my studio! There is glitter and mica everywhere!!! These Christmas trees are what I have been working on for the past couple of months. 

I love making these so much. It really is hard to let them go and put them in my shop at Rusty Saturday. All year I search for and collect little bits and baubles that will find there way into one of my Christmas trees.

 Sometimes I bleach the trees completely, and sometimes I like to leave a little color in them.


I use silver teapots too.

 This year I added some altered bottles into the mix as well. I've sold almost all the ones I made, so I think I'm going to need to make some for myself now!!


I made some more baby shoes too...  
One of my favorite things I made this year was this WISH* banner. It almost didn't make it into the store!! 
Hope you are all doing something fun for the holidays. I cant believe Thanksgiving is just over a week away!

Those bottled bottles are awesome! Yes, you should definitely have a few in your own house. Any chance you'd do a "how-to" for us DIY newbies? I've missed your blog! Jonni

Where in the world can I find bottle brush trees? Haven't seen any that don't cost a fortune here in Connecticut, not even at Dollar Tree.

Another vital call is that the baby feeding bottles you'll opt to have your baby use. There are many sorts of baby bottles within the market today; the standard feeding bottles for babies are product of plastic and are quite cheap click here.
