I must admit. I was NOT ready to dive into this years Michaels Christmas tree. I felt like I needed a Christmas hype man by my side as I went back and forth between ideas.

You know, someone playing all my favorite Christmas songs, like ” All I Want for Christmas” and a little Nsync and Michaels Jackson and saying things like ” You got this girl. You do Christmas boo!” haha!  I just could not get in the mood!!

Maybe because it’s literally still 100 degrees outside? Hello Phoenix, Arizona!

I’ve been wearing my beanie I got from my fall favorite things party a few weeks ago, thinking maybe if I just pretended, the season would change, but it didn’t. I just ended up with a sweaty beanie head. haha!

Well, I finally got in the mood for Christmas two days ago, but even then it was a stretch because I had just dressed the kids up in their halloween costumes and my belly hurt because I ate one, two, maybe 10 to many Reese’s cups.

But I finally got my act together and finished this years Michaels Dream Tree!

It’s a  7.5 flocked beauty with touches of glass, white, soft gold and green. Not just any green, but a beautiful hunter green that seems to be everywhere right now. I love green. Olive green, kelly green, grassy green and mossy greens so hunter green is no exception.

I’ve done this challenge a few years now and last year I went off the neutral wheel and went with some REDS. It was so fun and I loved having red in my home for a few months but MAN I was so happy to put it away..lol!

So this year I went back to my first love, something just a bit more neutral. I feel like green is so cohesive to nature, that it counts as my neutral. It’s a color that I crave in my home. So along with some greenery and metallic accents this tree came together.

Shopping Michaels Tree Trimmings

The trimmings for the tree this year was pretty simple. I found this gorgeous ribbon at Michaels and I knew it would be the perfect accent for the tree. At first glance I didn’t love it but I decided to just use the reverse side of it! So it wouldn’t be so busy. I also added this striped black and white ribbon along with it. It was the perfect complement!

I knew I wanted so hunter green ornaments to go on the tree. But after scanning the Michaels store and online, I wasn’t finding any. I decided the easiest thing to do would be to spray paint these large plastic/glass ornaments Hunter Green by Krylon. Just a light spray on both sides gave it some great coverage and made a great visual impact on the tree. 

Another fun feature I added to the tree were these clusters of white ornaments! They were another simple DIY. I just stringed 6 white bulbs on satin ribbon and tied them onto the tree!

I also used the same technique on the glass clear bulbs too. 

Speaking of glass bulbs, I loved the simplicity of them so much that I added them all over the tree this year with green ribbon. It gave the tree some great contrast and glow.

I used dried eucalyptus on top of the tree for a simple topper with a wonderful scent!
