How to decorate a flocked Gold and Silver Winter Wonderland Christmas Tree – Michaels Dream Tree Challenge.
It’s my favorite time of the year! I’m excited to share my Michaels Dream Tree with you guys today. I’ve been working with Michaels for 3-4 years now and it’s always fun to think of a Christmas tree theme. This year I think I changed my mind on the theme at least 5 times. I originally thought I would go with a modern farmhouse style tree then I came across a beautiful glitter gold and silver garland at Michaels. The garland was my inspiration to mix gold and silver with my flocked Christmas tree and I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out.
Gold and Silver Winter Wonderland Dream Tree
The cashmere tree was absolutely beautiful the way it came with thick, full branches. I had dreams of decorating a flocked Christmas tree so I set out to flock it myself (I’ll share more on that later). Once the tree was fully covered in flocking to create a snowy effect I began decorating with a mix of garlands. I used the gold and silver glitter garland then added white marabou boa’s in between.
I haven’t added a lot of handmade ornaments just yet but I found a great selection of beautiful gold and silver ornaments at Michaels. My favorite are the beaded mercury glass ornaments. They have a bit of a vintage feel to them.
Every year I tend to use flowers to fill up space on my tree, these glittery burlap poinsettias fit perfectly with my theme.
I used a rustic wood marquee star as my tree topper with a few silver picks around the top. The star fit perfectly with the gold and silver ornaments and really helped create a nice contrast.
Of course I had to add a few decorations around the tree and fireplace. My favorite piece is this rustic sled with a touch of silver. It’s darling and my kids love it! I can see this being around for many holiday seasons to come

This is so magical! Love the cashmere tree. It makes me want to get a fake tree now!
I’m usually not a fan of silver and gold trees, but yours is stunning and perfectly done. It is very elegant!! I am loving your tree!! Awesome job!!
Your tree looks gorgeous! Great job!
This is beautiful! I love the silver and gold ornaments and the boa really gives it a softer look.
Your tree is absolutely stunning, love gold/silver with flocking and all else you included.
Think rustic star is perfect with tree.
Seems like every year Christmas decorating and all to do it with is available earlier and earlier. Course understand why bloggers have to do projects earlier but the stores, to get people to buy more and more?
Your tree looks like it ought to be at Santa’s house or in his workshop. Your kids must be really glad you’re a blogger.
Well better get back to deciding which ornaments and projects want to make. Bloggers offer so many wonderful ideas, is hard to decide.Mostly want to make things already have supplies for from previous years, we don’t get paid til day after Christmas for Dec. For Thanksgiving get paid day before, nothing like cutting us short. I am referring to SS paydays. Both hubs and I get paid on 4th. Wed. of every month, not always very timely.
Enjoy your gorgeous tree. Have wonderful week.
How did you flock the tree?
Your tree is gorgeous!
how did you flock the tree?
Very pretty tree! I have a white flocked tree but it doesn’t look as nice as yours. Any suggestions to put more flocking on it? I plan on using white boas this year as well as some cotton with pink and silver mercury glass ornaments to keep it full looking. Thanks.
Love the star! Where is it from?
I know this was a few years ago, but where did you get your garland, did you make it?
Hi Angela, the garland is from Michaels. I believe they’re selling it again this year. Hope that helps! :)
We had the same question about the garland. We thought she bought 2 ribbons from Michael and made it. We were searching the website under garland and could not find it but after a week of searching we were able to locate it
Hope this helps everyone.
Hi I love your tree where did you get your tree topper ?! It’s beautiful
How do you “flock a tree”
