Five more days til Christmas! I want to share with you today a little ornament I made to give to friends. It's a tiny bottle brush tree, all decked out with pearls, snow, and glitter, nestled inside a hanging salt shaker. The entire thing is about 3-1/2" tall, very vintage, and very precious!
Here's mine hanging in the tree...
They're easy to make, just take a little time. The S&P shakers are purchased at Walmart for 97cents a set! The pearls also are from WM, a large pack for about $7. Bottle brush trees are upwards of $1 apiece, and you'll probably need to bleach them white before you deck them out.
They're trimmed out with Stampin' Up! supplies, including Pink Pirouette 3/8" taffeta ribbon, Crumb Cake seam binding ribbon, Linen Thread, and Baja Breeze and Silver Glass Glitter. Also retired Stampin' Up! supplies, including Mica Flakes and Tinsel Trim. I also used the Jewelry Tag Punch for the tag tied to it, and colored special words from More Merry Messages Stamp Set using a Soft Suede Stampin' Write Marker.
