It’s one of my favorite days of the year, the big Michaels Makers Dream Tree Challenge! I absolutely love kicking off the holiday season with this post. It always gets me in the Christmas spirit and gives me a little jump start to decorating the rest of my house. Not to mention, all of the trees are SO inspiring. You have to scroll down to the bottom to see all of the Makers’ trees.
This year I went with a Black and White Woodland Christmas Tree. I love working with a white tree last year, so I stuck with it again this year but added a different theme.
This year, I placed the tree in the kids’ playroom. I had several different ideas going into the process of decorating the tree. But once I headed to Michaels and saw all of the amazing woodland christmas decor, I knew I wanted to do a black and white tree and add some fun plush ornaments that the kids will love.
Seriously, Michaels has their largest tree assortment this year, including colored and flocked trees. Check out all of their trees, ornaments and coordinating holiday décor on Michaels.com
Isn’t this guy so cute? Michaels has three different woodland creature this year, so naturally I got one for each kid :)
I love the look of multiple trees in one space. Michaels has tons of different tree options so I added two 4.5ft trees to create a woodland look.
I wanted this tree to have a few personalized touches. I found large black initial ornaments to add to the tree and I also created these personalized ornaments by transferring family pictures onto little wood rounds. I’ll be sharing the tutorial soon!
Do these come in my size?!?!
I found buckets of these natural wood ornaments and I picked up a bunch of these to use as fillers. You could easily paint them or stain them but I chose to keep the natural look.
This is always such a fun challenge! I’m so excited to officially kick off the Christmas decorating this year. I can’t wait to work on the rest of the house. But for now, I will just hang out in here!
