Christmas tree decorating

Michaels Dream Tree Challenge

I know it’s not even Halloween yet but I have had Christmas decorating on my mind early this year for many reasons. One of those reasons: I’m so excited to be participating in the 2nd annual Michaels Dream Tree Challenge! 

Last week, I took a moment to run into Michaels to browse the Christmas decor and craft selection for the challenge. First, there is no such thing as just running into Michaels. Is there? I’m always there way longer than intended – a DIY/crafter’s dream come true! Who would have thought the aisles would be stocked for the holidays so early? It seemed they were still working on it but there were so many glittery, beautiful, fun themes that it’s difficult to know where to start.  Michaels Craft Store

Traditional red and green? red and green Christmas

A more natural vibe with burlap? Love the pinecone garlands natural Christmas

and how sweet is the printed burlap ribbon? burlap Christmas

Silver? silver Christmas

Country? country Christmas

Pastel? pastel Christmas

All white Christmas? white Christmas

Silver? silver Christmas

Fun, bright and colorful? Colorful Christmas

 

I’d say there’s something for everyone!

Christmas decorating is one of my favorite things about winter. I love it! Now, I’m not a fan of taking it all down, organizing it and putting it all away but when the days are short and cold, I can ignore my dislike for the winter season by getting my home all warm and festive.  turquoise white Christmas tree

And festive it is. I decorate the dining room, living room, family room and sitting room. My most favorite holiday decoration: our Christmas tree! Make that plural. Do you decorate more than one tree?  burlap natural Christmas tree

My tree decorating tradition has changed since my girls are no longer little and at home but I still love playing Christmas music even if it’s more of an event for one. And when it’s all done: hot cocoa, only tree lights glowing in the room and reflecting on the year’s blessings. Do you have a tree-trimming tradition? traditional Christmas tree

 Six Tips for Decorating a Christmas Tree

If you could decorate your tree any way with any theme, what would you choose? Come back November 1st to see my choice…it may be early but I’m going to be ready for that holiday home tour. 😉 

*Michaels provided me with a 7 ft lighted tree and gift card to participate in the Michaels Dream Tree Challenge. As always, the post above is in my own words and my own opinion. I’ll be sharing my decorated tree and a DIY ornament tutorial in the near future.  

  • Michaels has a HUGE selection of pre-lit artificial trees. 
  • Did you know each tree purchased at Michaels comes with a 5 year tree warranty and a 2 year warranty on the lights? Now you do!
  • Heads up: On November 3 through November 9, Michaels is hosting a special tree event.
