Bottle Brush Whimsy!
The Tinselette Tree Danseurs!Here is an array of holiday projects I created using bottle brush trees and wreaths, which I either bleached or hand dyed, then decorated with vintage embellishments and Lisa style!Sweetie Swizzlestix!These doll are the Sweetie Swizzleberrys!

Meet Miss Sweetie Swizzleberry, a bottle brush tree doll ornament. Made from vintage bottle brush tree, vintage millinery, paper wire, distressed old fashioned tinsel, chenille, my handpainted vintage styrofoam heads, crepe paper, mercury beads and more.

Sweetie's tree body was hand bleached, dyed and painted, then lightly sprinkled w/clear glitter.
