Popularized in the 1940's, bottle brush trees have become a Holiday mainstay in homes across the US. Today, they can be found in every color of the rainbow. I especially fancy an unadorned grouping of them in various heights and hues of the same color.
There are even wreath versions...
I love the subtlety of this blush and bashful version.
Though rarely in the punchy shades shown above, vintage versions can be found all over eBay, in thrift stores and probably your parent's attic.
Feeling crafty? If you're interested in custom dyeing your own, a great little tutorial can be found here.
