Peppermint & Snow Christmas Tree Revealed!

 

Peppermint Christmas Tree Theme by UCreate - classic!

I’m so excited to show you my finished tree for the Michaels Holiday Dream Tree Challenge!!

So I know my colors were going to be turquoise, red, and white…but when I started decorating, I fell in love with the red and white by themselves!

My favorite thing about the tree? These ginormous glittery candy cane ornaments…and yes they’re shatterproof, too.

Here’s a close up of the rest of the ornaments. Every single thing you see on this tree is from Michael’s so you can find what you need there along with many other themes.

As for the top of the tree? This was the very first year I haven’t had a star on top! I saw these blingy candy swirls and knew they had to top the tree!

I want to give the fabulous people at Michaels a HUGE thank you for inviting me to be a part of this amazing challenge.

  3. Love it Kari! I've had a peppermint tree for years now. It's nice because you can always find more red and white ornaments to decorate with. I have those same giant candy canes and they are my favorite part of the whole thing.

    1. The sticks coming out of the top were about $5 each and that wasn't using a coupon. I used 4 sticks on top! Not too bad!

  13. Amazing! This is my theme every year but those giant candy canes are to die for. I have never seen those at our Michaels! Utah Michael's stores are so much better.
    You have mad skills!

    1. I was in another Michaels store today and noticed they didn't have the candy canes either. Looks like some stores carry more inventory than others.
      Thanks for your sweet comment Lynette!

  14. My daughter Tya has a white tree that she does in purple each year. (she is 14) She wants to add in white and do the candy canes in purple! She already has tons of purple ornaments.

  20. Your tree is stunning! I love that when I google Michael's trees this is one of the first ones to come up!
    Now about those candy canes. I cannot find them at Michael's. Did they come in a box or loose? I am having the hardest time and they really are a must-have! ;-D

    1. Hi Cyndie,
      Thank you! They come in a large clear box as a set of 4...I believe they're 19.99, but with a coupon it makes them a little over $10...great deal!

  22. I recently came upon your blog and LOVE it! Thanks for sharing all of your fun ideas! I love everything about your tree! I think I will use it as inspiration for mine! Do you have any suggestions for using the deco mesh? I've never worked with it before.

    1. Thanks Corinn!
      I love the deco mesh...it automatically sticks to the tree and I didn't have to tie it on like I do with ribbon. Give it a try...you'll LOVE it!
