How to make your own bottle brush trees...
You will need some string or rope... the natural sisal kind, a piece of wire bent in half.
cut the rope or string into lengths...the length determines the width of your tree, pull the fibres apart
fix a hook into the end of a hand drill.
Place the fibres between the wire, place the two ends in a vice... or get someone else to hold the ends in some pliers...hook the looped end and wind the drill
when it's tight the wire will probably snap.. that's OK
Trim any extra wire from the top
Shape the tree with scissors.
The trees below have been dyed with Dylusions spray inks and then rinsed for a paler effect.
I rolled them in PVA glue and dipped them in Glamour dust...
If you make some leave a link so I can come and see!
