My favorite part of being a Michaels Maker last year was designing a tree for the Dream Tree Challenge 2014. So I was so excited when a new tree appeared on my front porch a few weeks ago.
I wanted to create a tree that felt light and airy this year and I was inspired by the Christmas Mantel I created for my house last year and wanted to keep it simple and all white.
So I went shopping at Michaels and found so many lovely white ornaments to get me started.
One fun thing I did this year was add globe lights to my tree. This is the first year I’ve seen them available at Michaels and they are super affordable compared to buying them at Pottery Barn. I love how they light up the tree and brighten the room up at night.
The pom pom garlands are the same ones that I used on my Christmas mantel last year, they are in the kids craft section. I used 14 of them on my tree.
The geometric ornaments added the perfect touch of modern. I created them with lollipop sticks from the candy making section of Michaels – and a lot of hot glue!
My favorite part of decorating for Christmas is the magical feel at night when all the lights are out and the christmas tree lights are glowing softly. Now that Halloween is over I can get excited about all the fun parts of Christmas!
