Michaels Holiday Dream Tree Challenge {Part One}


Christmas Tree Decorations

I can’t wait to show you what I’m up to.

I’m participating in Michaels Holiday Dream Tree Challenge!  Here’s how it works.

They send me a pre-lit Christmas tree,

Michael's Christmas Tree

a gift card, and they said “create your dream Christmas tree in one week”! 

I was so excited and headed to my nearest Michael’s {only 5 minutes away} and freaked out when I saw this aisle…

Get this. They have a whole aisle of Christmas tree decorations by theme! They have done the coordinating and guess work for you!

I’ve been crazy about candy canes and peppermint for years. I love the smell (helped me so much when I was pregnant by the way), the taste, and the pretty red and white combo. I’ve always wanted a peppermint tree!

Oh wait. It gets even better.

Not only did they have a whole line of candy cane and treat ornaments, they were all SHATTERPROOF! Are you serious?
