Crochet Decorated Christmas Tree {Michaels Dream Tree Challenge}

    Posted by  ·  November 1, 2013

    I am so thrilled to be participating again this year in Michael’s Dream Tree Challenge. This year my tree is decorated in love and generosity (and some yarn)!

    I decided a tree decorated only in crocheted ornaments would be amazing.  I knew I couldn’t do it alone, so I asked for help on facebook. I was overwhelmed by the response! Women that I have never met, never even chatted with online eagerly joined in. Daily my mail was loaded with goodies, so many beautifully crocheted ornaments. I can’t describe the love that poured out of those boxes and envelopes. I have had more than one good cry over this tree. To be part of such awesome warmth and kindness leaves me speechless!

    We are donating our tree to a local Festival of Trees that auctions off the trees for a local charity that supports individuals with disabilities to live on their own.

    Thank you Michaels for sending me one of your fabulous trees and allowing me to participate in The Michaels Dream Tree Challenge.

    Disclosure – I received a pre-lit Christmas tree and gift card to participate in the Michaels Dream Tree Challenge.

      When my husband and I were first married, we had no money for Christmas, much less decorations. Fortunately we lived in a very rural area and were able to cut down a small tree. I crocheted several small ornaments, and also made some from felt, glitter, and glue that I stitched together with embroidery thread and stuffed. My husband died over 31 years ago, while the kids were still small. I still have some of those ornaments though, and use them every year - along with every one that the kids, and now grandkids, have made. This tree inspires me to make more - there are many beautiful pieces, and the love that went in to them shows!
