This is the third year that I have made a tree for Michaels, and I must say, it is always one of my favorite projects! It has been such an honor to be a part of the #MichaelsMakers #TagATree challenge this year amongst so many talented ladies! Stop by Michaels’ blog, The Glue String, to see the full Dream Tree Challenge and all of the fabulous trees that were created this year by the Michaels Makers! And, to kick off the holiday season, make sure and check out of Michaels’ Make it Merry inspiration book or all kinds of holiday tips and projects!
I wanted a white tree this year, so with some spray paint and tree flocking I turned the green into snow! My inspiration for the ornaments started a few weeks ago when I spotted some fabulous black, white and gold wrapping paper in amazing striped and polka dot patterns while shopping at Michaels. The second I saw the wrapping paper I knew what I wanted my tree to look like. Everything on the tree is from Michaels :).
Stay tuned for some DIY tutorials on some of the ornaments and things I used to decorate my tree.
But without further adieu, here’s my modern polka dot, striped, black, white + gold Holiday Christmas tree…
Using paint markers, I wrote various Christmas Holiday inspired “words” on black, white and gold bulbs.
I painted and glittered sets of XO letters to use as ornaments on the tree.
I painted the edges of cardboard heart ornaments with gold paint then covered the front sides with striped black and white wrapping paper (all from Michaels).
I dipped the tips of black feathers into gold paint and glitter. LOVE how they turned out!
