I’m SO excited to be revealing a special Christmas tree with you today! Last year I participated in Michaels Dream Tree Challenge (see my vintage tree and my Star Wars tree) and this year I’m back at it again with a really fun theme – “ugly sweaters!”
I went shopping at Michaels recently and found so many amazing Christmas decor items – for trees and beyond. Michaels has their largest tree assortment this year, including colored and flocked trees. Check out all of their trees, ornaments and coordinating holiday décor on Michaels.com.
I had a theme in my mind when I started my shopping trip but by the end it had completely switched because I saw the most darling little sweater ornaments at the end of an aisle . . . and I just couldn’t resist! Check them out:
It’s hard to call them “ugly” sweaters because they are just so dang cute!
They come in a ton of different designs (over 20) and they already have hooks on them. So you can just buy them and pop them up on your tree!
Speaking of the tree, I went with a 7.5 feet pre-lit Jasper Cashmere tree from Michaels. The look and texture of the tree is so pretty. And I love that the lights are already on the tree . . . makes it so easy!
In addition to all of the Christmas sweaters, I wrapped the tree in both Red and White Glitter Dot Extra Wide Ribbon By Celebrate It. I used three rolls each of the 5.5″ x 6 yards. It gives such a lovely touch to the tree . . . I love the sparkle and the polka dots!
You’ll definitely need some Christmas balls to fill in between the sweaters. I used several boxes of the Emerald Green, Olive, and Red – and I think it’s obvious I chose some glitter. I wanted a pretty good amount of bling on my tree!
I finished off my tree with a cable sweater inspired tree skirt and packages wrapped with paper from Michaels. I should also note that little fur bin on the right is from Michaels. It was too awesome not to get . . . it can store Christmas blankets, pillows, and more!
I’m so thrilled with the way my Dream Tree turned out. I love these little sweaters so much – I squeal every time I see them!
