Michaels Makers Dream Tree Challenge 2016

It's hard to believe that it's almost time for Christmas! I love this time of the year!!

This year, we started our Christmas decorating in my office - with the Michaels Makers Dream Tree Challenge and our new 9' tree!

We went fairly traditional with the colors and decided to go with a woodland creatures theme. Have you noticed woodland creature ornaments are everywhere this year!? I love them!

We picked up the mini stocking garland from Michaels - as well as supplies to make mini woodland creatures (heads are from the felted wool garland - accented with white pom poms black marker and, wood pieces and sticks)

I love the curled tail on the mouse!! 

Finally, we made silhouettes of woodland creatures with balsa wood and our new Cricut Explore Air 2 and we burned the edges with a wood burning tool. LOVE them!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Looking for more inspiration? Be sure to check out the other Michaels Makers Dream Tree Challenges and
