AFTER: (This 7 foot beauty got quite the makeover!)
I’m so excited to reveal my Michael’s Dream Tree! We loved being able to participate again this year. I found all of my items for my tree at Michaels Craft Stores. I love homemade ornaments & below I will share how I made 3 different ones for my Dream Tree.
I LOVE how the blues, silver & white in my new tree design tie into our family room. Sharing all of the details below!
First I started decorating my tree using shinny silver mesh ribbon, silver beaded garland, & blue shiny ribbon. I took each one and wrapped a layer on the tree. The key is to push the ribbon into the the tree. This will give it depth and allow space for ornaments.
I found these adorable frames…just $2 a piece! I LOVE frames on trees but since I didn’t need pink for my tree…I broke out the spray paint.
You can see how I changed the colors to match my tree. I also used Rhonna Designs’ Christmas images to make these mini pictures for the frames. I LOVE that reindeer!
I made mini “silky” pom poms for my tree using 3 inch foam balls I found at Michaels. I followed this easy pom pom tutorial. These add a bit of “Fancy-shmancy” to the tree. I used a 1.5 inch circle as a pattern.
And my favorite ornaments….homemade sunburst mirror ornaments! These were so fun and easy to make! I will be sharing how to make these mini sunburst mirrors next week with the full tutorial.
I fell in love with these mini ceramic, white, sparkly birds. I just added some clear string to the top and voila…hanging beautiful bird ornaments.
And I topped it off with several of these pretties…feathers and sparkly sprays.
