The Baby Tree

I love to decorate for baby showers.  Especially for little girls.  Everything can be so frilly and feathery and fun!

I like to create something different, something maybe no one else has seen before.

Although I know nothing is new under the sun, I still think this Baby Tree is pretty neat-o!

I started with some branches I found in my yard. (free)
Then spray painted them with left over white paint.  (free)

Placed them in a container from the $ store.  ($1)
Poured in some clear glass marbles left over from a wedding to
 hold them in place.  (free)

Tied ribbon in varying lengths onto the branches.  ($3)
Punched holes in scripture cards I made on my computer left over from my daughter's baby shower and tied them on the ribbon.  (free)

Tied baby party favors on the ribbon.  ($2)
Clipped on tiny pink clothes pins to hold money and gift cards.  ($1)

The mother-to-be was very pleased with her Baby Tree!

Check out these great ideas!!

  9. What a great idea! Love the look of branches for Christmas w/evergreens, an Easter egg tree, and now this! Would also be cute for a wedding shower with tiny little favor boxes hanging. Thanks for sharing!
