It is time for another bottle brush tree post.
I have an entire forest of tiny trees waiting to be completed.
Silver and gold - such traditional colors for Christmas.
I am still working on the huge box of trees I bought at the thrift store.
They are the stiff ones - some were probably expensive when new.
They do not bleach well or at all.
For this group I used a shiny metallic gold.
Wear a glove - you have to hold them as you spray paint.
I had a sterling silver bead necklace which had tarnished.
I strung the beads on silver beading wire.
Ten beads to a strand for these medium-sized trees.
Of course I did not count the beads to see if there were enough!
So the last tree has both silver and pearl beads.
You know, there is always one in every bunch that has to be different.
Now as you were reading this post, were you singing the Silver and Gold song?
Well, here's Burl Ives as Sam the Snowman singing.
Remember to return tonight (Sunday, 7PM Eastern) right here or over at Tamara's (Etcetorize) for Make It Monday. It's beginning to look a whole lot like Christmas! I picked the features from last week so they will be on my blog.
