Cosmetic Christmas Tree Gift

If you are looking for a cute and creative gift to give this year for Christmas, look no further ! Making a cosmetic tree for your BFF’s, sisters, or mothers, is a great way to say “Merry Christmas.” A cosmetic Christmas tree is a small fake tree, about a foot tall, which you hang beauty items from to make them look like ornaments. Your gift recipient will be impressed with this thoughtful and original gift.

What You Will Need:

  1. Small, Fake Christmas Tree (About 1 foot in length)
  2. Beauty products (Make sure they are not too heavy)
  3. Decorative Ribbon
  4. Clear Tape
  5. Tinsel
  6. Scissors
  7. Needle

1.  Prepare the tree for the makeup ornaments. Starting from the top of the tree, wrap the tinsel around the tree so it looks like a cascading swirl.

2. Separate the beauty products in packing and plastic wrap.

3. Start with the beauty products in packaging. Many packaged beauty products will already have a hole from hanging on the rack. If they do, great ! Simply tie a small amount of ribbon through the hole to create your ornaments.

4. If the packaging does not already have a hole, take the scissors and cut a small hole through the packaging so you are able to tie the ribbon through. If it is plastic packaging, do the same thing and make a hole with the scissors. Use a needle to string the ribbon through the hole to avoid cutting your fingers.

5. Now start on the products with out packaging. If the product is light enough, simple tape a loop onto the product. If the product is too heavy, tie a not around the product to secure the loop.

6. Now comes the fun part! Decorate your tree with all of the beauty products. Instead of a star you can put a shower loofa, or another makeup product.
