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.
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
