Tiny Personalized Holiday Decor Gift
This is as close to holiday decorating in a box as I can make it. A friend moved into her first house earlier this year. She wasn’t sure she would have time to put up any holiday decorations so I thought about how I could help her have a little taste of the holidays. I was going to send her our Happy Holidays Cardinal Lap Quilt then remembered she doesn’t have a lot of room so I came up with this tiny personalized holiday decor gift.
I started with a tiny artificial tree, tiny garland and a set of small dog ornaments from our local hobby shop.
If you don’t have a hobby shop you can find tiny trees at any big box store. If you can’t find the traditional garland in a small size, the tiny Christmas tree garland can be anything from a small ribbon to a tiny necklace chain.
I added a few tiny cookie ornaments from my own tiny tree.
The dog ornament at the top has her dog’s name written on the back of the ornament.
So that she can finish decorating the tree, four cat ornaments with personalized cat names on the back are in a tiny gift box.
I picked up a cute Santa at the fireplace photo frame at a local thrift shop and repainted it with more primary colors. The original frame had a pink Santa Claus, pink Christmas stocking and hard to distinguish books on the mantle top.
A little paint to brighten the frame and a personalized photo now makes this fireplace ready to place next to the tiny tree.
When I was looking for a gift box, I found the little dog ornament that barks “jingle bells” so I had to add that, even if it is not to scale.
Now she can either use this in her home or take it to the office to decorate her desk. Or she can take the singing dog toy to the office and keep the tree and fireplace mantle at home and she will be all set for Christmas!
Can you think of anyone on your gift list who could use a tiny holiday decor gift?
