DIY Modern Christmas Tree Mani (+ Hostess Gift Idea)


DIY Modern Christmas Tree Nail Tutorial
It’s time to start sprinkling in some holiday DIYs and I can’t think of a better way to start than this! I’m a pretty big proponent of never showing up to a party empty handed, so when Charming Charlie asked me to come up with a creative hostess gift, I was happy to think outside of my usual baked-good box! The holidays are often all about cocktail parties, and I couldn’t think of a better wait to thank a hostess than with some blingy cocktail rings. Not your average gift, but one you know she wouldn’t turn down!

I took it up one more notch by adding a manicure tutorial to show ’em off. I brought in Alex of Beautilitarian to help out with the tutorial, and she came up with a modern Christmas tree nail idea that is subtle but perfect for the holidays! You can download + print the tutorial printable below + package it up with some bling. BAM! You just won the hostess gift game.DIY Modern Christmas Tree Nail Tutorial4
And in case you need something for yourself for that holiday party, I threw in a little necklace eye candy up there for ya too. Gorgeous, right!? Now back to the mani…
