Michaels Dream Tree Challenge – The Finished Tree

A few weeks ago Michaels asked me to be a part of their Holiday Dream Tree Challenge…..of course I jumped at the chance because I love Michaels and I love a challenge!   I finished up my Dream Christmas Tree for Michaels Dream Tree Challenge…..and made a little HD “process” movie to accompany it!  Here’s a peek at the ornaments I made that you’ll see in the movie:

(Update: I had a few questions on equipment and software I use to film and edit HD videos… here for my list and FAQ!)

Michaels Dream Tree Challenge – The Sneak Peek

Aren’t these little guys cute? They are the inspiration behind my tree for the Michaels Dream Tree Challenge.  (click here to see my inspiration board here!)


Michaels Stores sent me one of their pre-lit trees and I had one week to decorate it using supplies and decorations from their store.  You know I love a challenge, so after I stocked up on the little woodland critters above I started browsing the store for more inspiration.   A few things I’ve incorporated into my tree:

Holiday Potpourri:


Wood craft pieces:


Metallic garland:


Burlap and tiny wreaths:
