For once I’m (almost) ready for this Christmas In July! Over the last week or so I’ve put together over a dozen new Bottle Brush Beauties using almost entirely stash. WOO!
Hold on to your (Santa) hats, cut I’m going to show all of 'em! Many of the bases are vintage, all of them “rescued” via thrift stores, garage sales, antique malls, etc.
I picked up some vintage wooden craft spools (never used for actual thread) in a grab bag of craft supplies at thrift store which turned out to be a great way to use the tinier bottle brush trees and so many nifty ribbons.
These cookie cutters came from an estate sale and were another great way to use fun ribbons.
Most of the ribbons are new, but not all. Some of the embellishements are vintage, some old-but-not-that-old, and some are newer. The only thing purchased was the grey dye for that one nutcracker.
