bottle brush trees

As an obsessive saver of scraps, I love seeing a good project for using up leftover odds and ends.  And as someone who also thinks that bottle brush trees are absolutely adorable, I have to admit that this project made me squeal audibly when I stumbled across it.  Virginia from Fynes Designs demonstrates how to use any fibers you have in your stash – yarn, twine, or even bits of tinsel leftover from your holiday decorating – to twist up a lovely, colorful little forest of your own!  [how to make DIY bottle brush trees]
