I’ve wanted to do some sort of Christmas Countdown for a long time now. I was browsing in Hobby Lobby and found (of all things) a pink Christmas tree and a miniature tree skirt with the word “Princess” on it. A little while (and about $30) later I had everything I needed to put together a Christmas Countdown Tree for my 6 year old
niece cousin (my Grandmother emailed me to point out that I don’t even have a niece, oops!) Scarlett. (Side note, on Thanksgiving we found out her mom is pregnant so she’s going to be a big sister again! I tell ya, our family has all of sudden started popping out babies left and right!)
I used boxes left over from my wedding favors, scrapbook paper, glue dots and a sharpie to decorate the boxes. The first 4 are all garlands, the next 19 are ornaments and the last one is the tree topper. There isn’t a whole lot to it so here it is in pictures:
Now she’ll have her own tree to decorate every year and really, what little girl wouldn’t love to have her very own princess tree? I know mine loved it:

Absolutely wonderful idea. Your niece is going to love it. I will be pinning this for future reference. I would like to have on in my daughters room when she is a little older. Thanks for sharing at my Our Favorite Things Link Party.
