Hi everyone, I know we’ve come straight off of stuffing ourselves full of our kids candy, and man, am I full of kit-kats, but today I get to share my Micheals Makers Christmas tree with you as a part of the Dream tree challenge!
I wanted to have fun with this tree and looking around the store, I found some great galvanized metal ornaments. I also really feel in love with so many of the branches and faux stems in the floral area. I have a plain green trees, so I found some faux flocked pine branches, and loved how they really lightened up the dark green of the tree.
I also wanted to think past the typical red and green of the season and do something totally different! I really loved the Christmas tree decorating idea
of doing a pop of an unconventional color!
I was really drawn to these beautiful gold bunches of flowers with some gold sparkle on them. I thought they would be so interesting tucked in the branches.
I love how it is the only bright color among the white of the snow ball ornaments and branches, and the muted neutral look of the galvanized metal ornaments.
They had a few really pretty metal snowflakes in the metal. I loved how intricate they were.
I also found these wood balls with sparkles on them. I loved the rustic touch.
I bought a few boxes of these clear glass ornaments too. They have a great reflective quality.
I also wanted to make my own tree topper which I will share the DIY with you soon!
I found these beautiful glittered sage leaves and decided to use them on my tree and on my topper.
My tree topper was another project I wanted to see how creative I could get.
I cna’t wait to share this tutorial with you. It was really easy!
I loved this glittery nest. It’s actual a floral stem!
And of course no tree is complete unless you have a book full of holiday inspiration
to go with it!
It was fun to really be able to think outside of the box and try something different for a Christmas tree!
