It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Oh and my favorite challenge of the year! Michaels Dream Tree Challenge!! Each year a select number of Michaels Makers is ask to create a Christmas tree of their dreams. Each one of us, with our own styles, own personalities and own ideas, creates a tree that we love! Last year I went crazy with buffalo check anchored with a cozy cottage feel and the year before I kept it classy with black and white.
This year’s tree is a combination of both. Classy and cozy. So very Christmas.
The willow Christmas tree we received is 9ft tall and features real looking pine tips. Oh and before I forget , this tree is SO easy to put together. Just connect the top to the bottom and boom! Christmas tree is lit! I always had the hardest time with all the different plugs! haha!
This year I loved the red and a classic tartan plaid. It’s a classic Christmas pattern that never gets old. I took a long break from red, but this year I brought it back and I’m loving it!
On the bottom I used the galvanized tree collar that’s available at Michael’s right now!
Just like last year I start with adding flocked picks to the tree. I love this trick because if you have an older tree you can make it look new by just adding some fun bushes like lambs ear…
I also love using items other than ornaments to decorate the tree. I used bells, lanterns and flags!
But of course I stilled used traditional ornaments too!
The christmas tree is topped with a fun marquee star and santa letter marquee at the bottom.
Take a closer look!
