I’m so excited to finally reveal my MICHAELS DREAM TREE! It was so much fun creating this black and white tree with a little touch of gold. Black and white is one of my all time favorite color schemes. It’s always in style and never gets old. Adding neutral metallics like gold, silver and bronze gives it just a little extra glam! If you LOVE color you can still get a look just like this. Just add one or two of your favorite colors and BAM you got yourself a dream tree.
When it came to creating this tree I wanted it to be cohesive. I feel like monochromatic rooms seem to invite those relaxing and calming atmospheres and that’s exactly what I wanted.
To start things off I added some flocked branches I picked up from Michaels floral section to my 7ft Willow Christmas Tree to brighten it up a bit. This is a great way to get a white flocked look with out spending the extra money! Place several of them in the tree for a winter feel.
I also added some other gorgeous trimmings like black and white striped ribbon, handmade banners and handmade ornaments!
These faux marble ornaments were so fun to make. Look out for the tutorial coming up in a couple of weeks!
These wrapping papers are going to go great under the tree! Only $2 each folks! Plus there is a lot of paper on these rolls! I was so excited to come across and entire black, white and gold section! You can find these in the bargain section at Michaels.
