I love my job! Not only do I get to share fabulous design ideas with you which I adore doing, but also I sometimes get to participate in some wonderfully fun projects! This year I was invited to participate in Michael’s Holiday Dream Tree Challenge. The challenge: 1 pre-lit tree, 1 gift card to Michael’s and 1 week to create the tree of my dreams!
The tree of my dreams? We’ve had a family Christmas tree for so many years and I’ve loved it! But a tree all my own to decorate any way that I want? Oh, wow! I have to be honest. I was a little overwhelmed at first. I’ve never really given much thought to my ideal Christmas tree. Since I’ve been shopping at Michael’s for years and years, I knew there would be many options. So my husband offered to go with me to Michael’s (WHAT???). He says he doesn’t remember that part. We headed to Michael’s to look for inspiration and boy did I find it. My hubby just wanted to spend time with me. I love that man!
I was tickled by what I found! Here’s a sneak peek:
Back at home, I got to work on making my tree vision a reality. I started with the wooden bird house. decoupaged some scrapbook paper on the roof, added a little paint and some glitter to finish it off. I love how glitter makes tree lights appear extra sparkly.
What would your dream tree look like?
