I'm always enamored of bottle brush trees, and these teensy ones are the cutest ever. They are placed atop wooden spools gussied up with vintage newsprint and liberal amounts of glitter. This would be an easy craft to do at the picnic table this summer!
To make them into place card holders, add a strip of newsprint with the person's name on it by pinning it to the tree with a corsage pin. (Admittedly not a good idea for kids.)
A piece of pretty baker's twine may be tied around each spool to add color, but I sort of like them just as is.
Have fun with this idea!
