How to Decorate a Tree for $150

We jumped at the chance when Christmas Tree Market asked us to decorate one of their lovely artificial trees.

The task: To decorate a beautiful tree for $150 then donate it to one of our favorite charities or organizations!

Not only is Christmas decorating our favorite thing EVER, but we were really excited to donate the tree to The Utah Center for Reproductive Medicine, that helped Sarah in getting her twins! We will be forever grateful for our baby girls :)

How we trimmed the tree for $150:

Our first stop was Hobby Lobby. We purchased wide-wired mesh, white sprays, and a few large natural-looking ornaments and balls that had twine and glitter.

We also found large paper mache ornaments that we painted white. We love how these turned out with their large scale and matte finish!

 Our splurge item were these extra sparkly white spheres purchased from Gatehouse no.1.

Last, we needed filler/smaller items. We found the  poinsettia flowers on clips, glittery reindeer, icicles and these adorable pine cones from The Dollar Tree. The snowflakes are from Target.

We love how the tree turned out (it is even better in person).

Thanks Christmas Tree Market for allowing us the opportunity to have even more decorating fun this Christmas!
