Bottle Brush Trees

I have always loved the old vintage bottle brush trees, but being frugal (aka cheap) I thought they were too expensive.  I was delighted to find information online about purchasing the green trees and bleaching them.  Fortunately they were on sale at Target online for less than $8.  Submerged in bleach for about 30 minutes creates beautiful vintage bottle brush trees.  I am tickled!!

Now, thanks to Martha Stewart, I can make my own.
It's a good thing!

These are wonderful, Edna. I had wanted to try this, and never got to it. This makes me want to do it all over again.
