great and informative
Very informative video. Sweet presentation and very well filmed. Lots of great ideas and detailed directions. It is a pleasure to watch and is a great learning tool for making your own sisal bottle brush trees since these are getting more difficult to find. The video also includes a detailed supply list for all the products needed to complete the project, dye formulas and more plus a pdf list of necessary supplies. A must watch video for any one wanting to make these delightful little trees. Review by sharon lee (Posted on 8/11/2016)
