Classic Christmas Tree Decor

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!
Here are the items you can pick up at your local Michaels!
Lambs Ear Picks and Bushes
Red Swivel Chalkboard

Could you please source the Merry Christmas banners in the tree? Loved it all but those really caught my eye!
Hi! Those are also from Michaels! I will update that!!!
Oh my goodness! Thank you!
I’ll be stopping by Michael’s when I go to town later today! ?
Can you share a link to the banners please? I love them too! I can’t find them on Michael’s website.
GORGEOUS! As always! Can you please share where you found the plaid stockings? Thanks!!
Those are from Target! shhhhhhh lol!
Lol, it will be our little secret! 😉
Hi.. Where are those cute lanterns from
Got them at Michaels!
I went by my local Michaels and didn’t see the plaid wrapping paper or the Merry Christmas banner/ribbon. I also don’t see it online 🙁 Do you know where I could find some?
Hi Kati! The wrapping paper will be in the dollar section of the store. The banners are actually flags and will be in the decor section of the store! It should be in the rustic collection!
How much was the galvanized tree collar? I can’t find it on the Michaels website!
It was about 40 dollars at 50% off. Using the extra 25% off made it even cheaper. You should see them in the front of the store. Not sure if its online though!
