Little Girl’s Gift Idea- DIY Dress Up Station


My little girl is turning 4 next week, so I am in complete party mode!  We plan on having a little tea party with her little friends and I thought it would be fun to have a little dress up station so the girls can get all dressed up for the tea party.  As I was making this I decided that not only am I going to use it for her party, but I think it will be perfect for closet too.  So I decided to turn it into a gift too.  I made the little station and then bought her a couple dresses and I bunch of little jewelry and boas to go with it.  I can't wait for her to see it and use it!

The station itself was super easy to make.  I used a 3/4" PVC pipe.  I just bought one pipe that was 8 feet long.  I then cut it like this- 2 pieces were 36" long, 1 piece was 18" long and 4 pieces were 8" long.

Here are the connecting pieces that I bought.  I'm not sure what they are called, but you get the picture :).  I also bought 4 caps.

I put the caps onto the 8 inch pieces and then put them into the T shape one, those were the legs.  Then I put the 18" pieces into the 3rd hole of the T connector.

Then I used the other connectors and put in the 18" piece.  I couldn't leave it just plain, so I added a little fabric banner and some flowers.  I just glued those one with a glue gun.

And that's it!  It seriously only took 10 minutes to make and that was with cutting the PVC pipe.

I added her dress up dresses, some boas and then a accessories holder.

Thank you! I'm heading to the hardware store today with my litttle girl to get the items to make this. It's Spring Break for us this week, so it'll be a cute mommy n' me project.
