I don't know if these exactly qualify as bottle brush trees. I haven't been able to find them in my local dollar store or even at my local Target. These two minis are from Michael's and they go with one of their little Xmas villages:
I did not do much to the trees but I did paint both little wood spools white. Then I glued each tree on top. For my finishing touch, I stamped Joyeux Noel and Peace onto some tea-stained seam binding.
Then I kind of just draped them around each tree - tying the seam binding in the back. Two petite lovelies but not feeling the true bottle brush vibe so if anyone has any advice on where to find some bigger ones, I'm all ears!
