Happy Friday! We are so excited to partner with Michaels this season for their 2nd Annual Michaels Dream Tree Challenge! We have been challenged to decorate a Christmas Tree using items found at Michaels. This came at the perfect timing for me. Moving into our new home, right before Christmas, the thought of getting our home Christmas ready was a bit overwhelming. This will get my behind in gear 🙂 I’ve also wanted to change my tree colors so this is great timing!


I spent the week at Michaels, sifting through items that would make a great addition to my tree!

I’ve decided to go GOLD, with a little bit of mercury glass accents, burlap and other natural tones and textures!

Here’s a peek at some goodies I found!

Silver-and-Gold-OrnamentI also found a few gold ornaments that I may add to the mix!

Check back on November 1 for my Christmas Tree Reveal!  Yes, I said November 1… I will definitely be ready for Christmas this year 😉

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Looks a lot like what I changed my tree to be a couple years ago and I just love it so much. You will too! 🙂

  2. Last Christmas I took my daughter’s colorful stuffed animals and decorated them with the glittery things from Michaels a few balls or a big bow and hung them on 12foot tree. It was was everything fun for a Christmas tree. Every child that saw it loved it
