I’ve been busy this week working on my Dream Tree entry for the Michaels Stores challenge. Jewel-tones and treasures are my design inspirations.
I added a few strands of colored lights to the pre-lit tree and then set to work tackling the treasure box tree skirt idea for hiding the tree stand. Mom donated a box to the cause. Made of light-weight wood, it was easy to cut out the bottom and make little slots for the feet fit to fit using a Dremel Multi-Max tool.
I started adding ornaments I purchased with the gift card from Michaels next. Celebrate It brand ornaments, ribbon and Christmas picks are on sale 50% off now as well as Ashland Christmas stems and bushes. Get this week’s ad for more savings.
I had plenty of help getting everything out of the bags and ready to put on the tree.
Some of my cherished ornaments are ones that have been handmade. I bought a stash of craft supplies at Michaels to create some new ones this season. Glass etching cream from Martha Stewart Crafts, Celebrate It clear glass ornaments, FloraCraft foam balls and sequins are just some of the goodies.
