Primitive Tree in Painted Bottle with Bowl Gathering
This special, one of a kind gathering would make a great presentation in your home for the holidays as it has been kissed with Christmas cheer and good tidings too! You will receive a primitive cloth tree with an old bottle used as the base along with a tart tin, carved bowl and a red felt embellished heart. You can place this piece anywhere in your home as it does not take up much room but is big on holiday spirit!
The hand crafted wire wrapped tree is accented with rusty bells and a single safety pin, a hand stitched heart and lastly a piece of holiday printed fabric that was hand stitched in place. A twig was used for the trunk that was wrapped near the top with vibrant crimson yarn. There is evidence of hand stitching on the back of the tree to aid in closing the opening after the stuffing was completed as referenced in image 5.
I used an old bottle for the base of the tree and enhanced it with a winter scene I painted backed on warm and natural fabric. This bottle was filled with green and red spices in keeping with the holiday theme. The trunk can just be inserted into the top of the bottle opening. The condition of this bottle is very good without any cracks or chips to report.
I added an old fluted tin for the bottle to reside in and filled it with pine cones and greens tipped with sparkling snow from the North Pole! The tin calls home in a vintage carved bowl that is out of round. A felt heart I embroidered with fancy stitching rests on top of the bowl laced with a trio of happy cinnamon sticks placed nearby.
This enchanting gathering is not only cheerful but seems to hold our attention because there is a lot going on due to the various textures and incorporating several artistic mediums throughout. The only dilemma you will have is to figure out where to place it in your lovely home! Enjoy!
