I purchased some of the cheap ones at Menard's. The ones that go with the Christmas villages.
This is what they look like. Very dark green with snow flocked tips and white plastic bases.
I don't particularly like the plastic bases so I tied squares of burlap on mine. I could have used a bigger square on the large tree and another pair of hands. I hot glued a piece of silver beaded garland on the the small three and small silver and red ball ornaments on the big one.
They look almost black in these photos.
Then I hot glued on little cardstock tags on these two bottle brush trees.
Then I made it more complicated and messy, and bleached some of the bottle brush trees in water and chlorine bleach. After they were rinsed and dried, I put Mod Podge on this one with a brush and added mica snowflakes.
These in front were bleached and glittered.
I think I prefer the mica flakes. It was less clumpy.
What a mess on my kitchen table!
