This month’s Michaels Makers challenge was a holiday decor challenge. I thought I would take on the task of using items from some of their new holiday lines, and crafting aisles to create a Deck the Holiday Tree Mantelscape ! I found a ton of super cute, different trees to mix and match to give my mantel that boho,eclectic flair.
Last year, my theme was more of a rustic woodland them. This year, I was going for a little more color. I used a garland of fresh,live greens as my base, an over that, I draped a super cute yarn pom-pom garland from their Boho Decor line.
On top of the mantel, I used these really cute, wood trees from their Alpine Decor line.
I put one at each end, and then in their Tiny Treasures miniatures area, I found all of these really cute, metallic bottle brush tree, that I am just in love with.
They had silver and gold variations, so I mixed the two boxes to fill out my mantelscape.
Oneach side, I flanked them with some smaller faux trees from their holiday decorating aisle where all of the florals are.
The one tree had a great white clay pot, but the other had a bright red container, so I covered that with a wood-look paper from the scrapbook aisle.
I love how my deck the holiday tree mantelscape it feels a bit like a boho forest.
What I really love is how the bottle brush trees match my rug when I didn’t even plan it that way! It was a really easy mantel to pull together too. It pretty much involved opening some boxes and plopping them down. Sometimes, that’s my favorite kind of decorating!
Michaels is a one stop shop for holiday decor this year ,and,they have a lot of great lines that you can buy as a set, or you can mix and match.
