Last year, Kari was invited to participate in Michaels Crafts Dream Tree Challenge. She created an amazing Peppermint and Snow Christmas tree. Now, it’s my turn!
An amazing 7-ft pre-lit tree arrived this month and I am itching to make it my DREAM TREE! I went to Michael’s Craft and was blown away by all the Christmas décor they have. When I set out to the craft store, I had a specific theme in mind and knew what I wanted. It all looked great in my head. But when I saw all the possibilities as I walked up and down the aisles (numerous times) my plans changed. After a couple of visits to my local Michaels, I have finally narrowed my dream tree ideas down to three themes! And I could use your opinions.
Here we go:
#1: WINTER WONDERLAND
My favorite thing about Christmas time is the snow…newly fallen snow. I am totally attracted to this theme because of all the bright beautiful glittery white decorations. From the flocked roses to the glittery owls, I am smitten with the elegance of this theme.
#2: RED & GREEN BLING
Christmas seems to always be about red and green themes; it’s traditional and I am all about tradition. What I like about this theme is the BRIGHT red and BRIGHT green enhanced with the blingy glitter. That non-traditional blingy part is what keeps bringing me back to this theme. Those striped Poinsettias are to die for. Everything in this theme is kind of Dr. Suess-y with curved lines and I love that look!
#3: WOODLAND BERRIES & PINECONES
Okay, now this is the traditional red and green with holly and berries. There is a lot to be said for the comfortable cozy and woodsy theme. Just looking at these decorations made me feel like putting on a big sweater and furry socks and hugging a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows. This theme just has a warm feel about it. I would totally use ribbon like jute, burlap, and twine in a tree with these decorations…and that Santa ornament is to die for!
So there you have it! Those are the themes I am toying with. What do you think?
How would you decorate your dream tree? I would love to hear what themes you would consider.
Are you in the market for a beautiful tree this year? Definitely head to Michaels. I am super impressed with the tree I received. November 3rd – November 9th is a Special Tree Event at Michaels Stores. Don’t miss it!
