Little Pink Christmas Tree

Here's another Christmas tree we have. This is Meredith's. It's mostly pink and I thought it'd be fun to share it on Pink Saturday. It's a little tabletop tree, only about 2 feet tall, and it sits on her dresser. I used a small pink yo-yo quilt for the tree skirt.

This is the button garland I made last year. I love the way it turned out, but if I did it again, I'd be sure to use ribbon with flexible wire to make it easier to position (the buttons are heavy and have a mind of their own).


Bubbles and balls and stars, oh my. The pretty stars are handbeaded by my friend Melitta. Each one takes her about two hours.


She also made this little angel I'm using for a topper. It's actually a pin to wear, but I thought she belonged on the tree.

And here's a little bird perched on the tree, a gift from my sweet friend Joey.

Have a wonderful PINK Christmas!

The tree is so pretty. Mrs Melitta showed me how to make the stars/ snowflakes. Mine took about 3 hours. lol The angel is perfect for this tree.

Well, thank YOU, sugar, for your visit! We have a green tree (faux), but hubby wanted me to purchase a white one last night so we did. Squeeeeeeal, I think he just loves what I do with it actually, but is just afraid to admit it. LOL. Yours are adorable though. Nice to meet you, Kelly Mac...
xoxo,
Connie
