A few weeks ago, I was invited by Michaels to decorate a tree with their ornaments this year as part of a Dream Tree Challenge. I’ve shopped my local Michaels for so many years and especially during the holidays, so I readily accepted their invitation!
Our family buys a flocked real tree at our local tree farm for the living room every December, but the kids loved the idea of a Christmas tree to call their own. We came up with a bright candy colored version decorated with some new ornaments and also some of their favorites from the past.
The three of us went shopping together at Michaels and their bright eyes quickly settled on a “candy and disco balls” theme – it was a glittery candy garland and a set of faceted disco ball ornaments that set the color palette for our tree and we got to work!
