Just the tiniest little shake of Christmas this morning.
I cannot seem to let a weekend go by without a bottle brush tree post.
These are rather sweet.
Unless you live near me or someone like me who has bought all the tiny trees at Hobby Lobby, you can go to Hobby Lobby to buy a package or twenty
packages of these tiny trees.
Using a warm tub of bleach and water, I picked up each tree with tweezers and gently swirled them around for about eight swirls.
Tossed them immediately into a tub of warm soapy water.
Put them out to dry. This takes hours.
Be careful - these super-cheap trees bleach very fast.
Found a vintage postcard image at The Graphics Fairy.
Printed out a page of them.
Cut each out and decorated with a bit of glitter glue.
"To thee and thine
From me and mine -
A Merry Christmas Greeting."
In my work box a collection of thirty small salt shakers and my tiny bottle brush trees.
I dabbed a bit a Tacky Glue to the bottom of each tree and used tweezers to stick them in the bottle.
Added some plastic fake snow.
Attached the card with a beading wire stuck through the shaker holes.
Gently curled the tags.
Bottle brush trees in bottles!
Just a tiny shake of Christmas.
Back into the work box until I get them marked and ready for the booth.
I cannot hold onto the secret any longer. Danni Baird who is on a break from her blog Silo Hill Farm is my guest poster child Tuesday and Wednesday. She has two Thanksgiving projects that will not take but a wee bit of time if you need a last minute project. I will be off trying to create some order before the big move down the aisle to my new huge booth.
Remember to return tonight for Make It Monday. Tamara chose the features from last week's party and they will be on her party post. The party starts at 7PM Eastern on Sunday and runs through Wednesday.
PS - Today is Chucks and my 34th wedding anniversary. We are not doing anything special because we both FORGOT it! Oh, well, age does creep up on you! I suggested a quick trip to Paris. He suggested a quick trip to the Cracker Barrel. I guess opposites truly do attract :>)
