Vintage Bottle Brush Tree Ornament

I was so excited when I found these cream bottle brush trees in the clearance section of a local Christmas decor store. I got even more excited when I got up to the cash register to tell the guy there was no tag on them, and he said, "how 'bout a dollar each?" Woo hoo, I just love them.
I decided to dress them up a little bit before adding them to my tree. I made a little sack out of muslin I had in my stash by just sewing 2 sides of a wide strip of material, leaving the top unfinished.

I pulled out my letter stamps to add 'noel' to the front.

I tucked the tree inside the sack and tied with some string.

I think I'm on a roll. More handmade ornaments to come!
