Pink Tree for a Little Fun...

Every girl needs to have a little pink in her life, right? About 5 years ago my niece was going to be turning 16 shortly after Christmas. I thought this would be the perfect time to make a special tree just for her. I decided to purchase a small pre-lit tree that came in a pretty white ceramic container. I found all different kinds of make up products in miniature sizes; eye shadows, eye pencils, lip gloss, lip stick, nail files, etc. I glued some sheer pink ribbon to each product and attached them to the branches of the tree. I added a pretty pink ombre bow that I made with wired ribbon and for the tree "topper" I added a sweet sequined make up bag filled with pink make up brushes!
My niece loved her special gift and I had so much fun coming up with the design for her tree. I still have all the items that I had purchased knowing that I would want to make another tree for my granddaughter when she was old enough to enjoy it. I guess I should get busy and start pulling out all the girly items I have and make another tree. This would also be a perfect gift for a hair stylist or a nail technician to place in their shops. I have way too little time for all the ideas swirling around in my head. Have you any special projects that you are working on for a loved one this Christmas?

I joined Beverly for Pink Saturday and I also joined in at The Christmas Blogger Block Party, please stop by and see what others are sharing for the Holidays!
