bottle brush trees - where?
Hi I am looking for miniature size bottle brush trees...anyone know an on line source for them?
The size I am looking for is between 1 and 2 inches probably...
Here is an example of some (these are 8 inches and more and too expensive and already decorated...so that takes them off my list!):
I hope someone can tell me where! Googled but I get all sorts of ebay auctions on VINTAGE ones...not what I want. Joanns has some in this size area...but again not what I want.

I know this is probably too late for this year... but you can actually take the cheesy ones you can buy at michaels or walmart in a bag (they are a really dark green, and not vintage looking at all) and you can bleach them to minty green or white get that old look. You can get a bag for usually about 10 bucks. I know it's too late this time... but it's an idea :)
THANK YOU! I did find a bag at Kmart so I will try the bleach. Hmm...wonder if I can then die them pink? I did find an ornament at Joanns too made of 6 white ones tied together around a Santa face...cut those off. So between the two and with your method of making them better I should have what I need. And its not too late - I tend to get all the parts as things go on sale, bag them with instructions so in the summer I can pull them out and make Xmas stuff. I was working on miniature winter scenes and needed trees...have everything else. Who knew trees were hard to find?
