I'm Dreaming of a Pink Christmas....

I never stay up until midnight.
But you know how sometimes you get ideas and you just can't rest until you see them carried out? That was me last night with this Christmas tree that I made for my daughter's room. She loves to "help" decorate our tree, but the control freak in me has to go and fix everything after she's touched it, and that gets old quickly :o)

So I made her this one!


It's double-sided with brown felt and pink polka-dotted cotton, and a layer of batting in between.




With felt and ribbon ornaments to decorate with!


She was absolutely squealing with delight when I gave it to her. I love that feeling when I know I've made something that she'll love!


We've also been busying ourselves making paper chains and pink snowflakes to cheer up her room! Whenever someone comes to our house, she takes them by the hand into her room and tells them "Look! it's pretty!"



All it needs now are some pink twinkle lights!

  8. So cute! I am jealous of how cute her room is... I really need to do some actual "for us" crafting... My sons would love a tree like that, too! (The ornaments would just get all over the house, though!)

  15. Oh my gosh... this is beyond cute!
    You seems to never run out of ideas. Ever since I had my little girl (after two boys), I started to play with pink more, but I feel like I could do more now.

  21. Soo cute! I'm so making this! My kids rearange my tree all day it drives me crazy. not to mention expensive with everything they break! this would totally help that without me having to yell at them and time out them! they are going to thank you too!! :) can't wait to make it! Ours will have to be gender neutral since our boy and girl share a room. but still! :) love the pink and brown!
