Christmas Tree Trend Alert: Pretty in Pink

We often look to our Michaels Makers for the latest in hot trends and for this year’s Dream Tree Challenge, they did not disappoint!

These Christmas trees rebel against the classic red and green of the season and bring a trendy twist on the traditional tannenbaum.  Soft pink shimmers and fun fuchsia decorations make these trees remarkably pin-worthy.

Christmas Tree Trend Alert: Mad for Plaid

It’s no secret that plaid & flannel are making a serious style comeback. Fashion gurus are rocking gingham, buffalo check and tartan designs every where you look. The latest trend has creeped its way into our homes and is bringing a warm, cozy vibe to holiday décor. And we aren’t mad about that one bit!

A few of our talented Michaels Makers hopped on the holiday plaid train and made absolutely gorgeous trees for our Dream Tree Challenge.

Just Destiny Dream Tree

We love the way Just Destiny pulled the pattern into her holiday décor with plaid wrapped gifts and stockings. Not to mention those cute Santa marquee lights!
