Best bottlebrush trees for putz houses and other Christmas crafting

best bottlebrush christmas treesI needed to buy miniature bottlebrush Christmas trees in bulk for an upcoming project involving our putz houses. So, I shopped around Amazon and ended up buying three different options to test and report on. Note: I have Prime, and all shipping was free for these particular orders. Which set did I prefer?:

The Efvis 37-piece set of bottlebrush trees for $12.99 — so nicely packaged, with minimal smushing.

    Oh, and as you can see, I used the cut-off pieces of the tinsel garland on the roof — my homage to dreaded pine needles.

    Miss Pam, they are probably all made at the same factory in China and then purchased in super bulk by various distributors, who have their own quality checking or not! Thank you for your homework.

    LOL…Adding: this is a good time of year to hit TJ Maxx and Homegoods, JoAnn etc for tall bottle brush trees in sizes from 10- 20 inches. These sell out pretty quickly but are available every year. I’ve seen them in all colors both decorated and plain. I found two last week at my local TJ Maxx for $9.99 each.
