I cannot wait to show you my theme for this year’s Dream Tree with Michaels Craft Stores! I fell in love with their brand new Alpine decor line this year (which includes metal, wood, with a vintage style) and instantly decided to create a country-themed tree.
“A Country Christmas” Tree Tutorial
I started with this gorgeous 7.5 Cashmere tree full of texture and fullness! I absolutely had to have the metal ring as my tree skirt this year. (DIY Tip: We added bricks underneath the tree to give it more height and it made the metal ring would show better.)
I always start with the garland. I decided to use two garlands this year: a red and white felt ball version (quantity 4), and a big roll of burlap ribbon.
Next up? The ornaments! I went around Michael’s store and found a variety of rustic/woodsy ornaments including silver bells and wooden tags from the Alpine Decor line…
…and oh my word. How adorable are the foxes and campers?
After I have all the ornaments placed I add small picks! These add so much dimension to the tree. This year I used wooden pinecone and berry picks.
I also love to add accessories around the tree for a final touch! I grabbed this fun Santa bag, Santa mail box, and wooden box.
From trees to ornaments and holiday décor, Michaels has everything you need to MAKE this holiday your own!
