DIY Christmas Nip Tree

Watch out Martha, I've got the ultimate Yankee Swap gift!

I made this last year for a friend who was taking a winter cruise and had a master plan of sneaking some nips on board. I surround myself with rebels. Very simple with a mega wow factor. Has anyone else noticed all my DIY's include nips?

All you need is:
A small, pre-lit table top tree (around 2' is fine)
About 20-25 nips
Beautiful handmade bow
Christmas ribbon

I got my tree from a local plant nursery that was selling real Christmas trees, but you can find these at most retail stores like Amazon or Bed Bath and Beyond.

Buy Me!

Use Christmas ribbon to hang nips like ornaments around your tree. I chose Smirnoff vodka nips because that's what my friend drinks and they come in a bunch of festive colors. Remember to leave extra length to curl your ribbon.

Finish your tree with a big, beautiful handmade bow. I will admit, I'm not too good at this part, but there are plenty of tutorials to get your craft on, like this how-to from Miss Lovie Creations.
