Last Christmas, we bought two mini Christmas trees for the girls to use as night lights in their rooms. They got to pick out the color, mini ornaments, and got to decorate it all by themselves. They have made very pretty night lights for months and we were about to take them down. See them here sadly removing all the Christmas ornaments and putting them lovingly in a bag. :( Poor things. But our rooms will be so DARK says one of them.
Then, momma gets a bright idea (ha, pun intended). I remember seeing some cute, pastel, mini foam/sparkle Easter eggs at the dollar tree, and I thought wait a second, we can KEEP your nightlights girls! What? Hooray, so we ran to the store to pick up a few packs, three for each tree.
In no time at all we were gussying up the trees with adorable little mini eggs.
Our finished handy work! Not bad. I'm going to have to come up with a cute bunny topper or something
Executive decisions were made that the pink tree would get solid colored eggs, while the purple tree would get all the stripped ones. They proudly and carefully placed them back in their rooms and waited for night time to come.
In the meantime, mom was getting artsy doing rack-focus shots with the macro setting. (FUN)
So after what seemed like an "eternity", night time was finally upon us. Here is a shot of our Christmas/Easter night lights which we can now keep up for at least another month or so, much to the glee of the wee ones.
It leaves me to wonder if they will want to put spring flowers or 4th of July flags on them in the coming months... Hmmm I guess only time will tell. I keep you posted. :)
