Don’t judge me. I’m that person who starts listening to Christmas music the day after Halloween. But I promise, there are lots more fall projects and posts to come during November! We’re just getting a little jump on the holidays.

Every year when it comes to Christmas time, I always get teased a bit about my taste in Christmas trees. I tend to like things pretty simple. I always go easy on the ornaments with just a few that I really love. And for some reason, I never use a tree topper. It makes my husband bonkers. So this year, being part of the Michaels Dream Tree Challenge was the perfect reason to indulge my simplistic tendencies and make no apologies for the way that I love to dress up my tree! Mr. Lovely and I wandered around in Michaels for a good hour or two before we decided that we wanted to get our DIY on and do an ombre tree, with DIY painted ornaments in a custom rainbow of our current favorite shade of blue.

I love the look of the painted ornaments — I almost wanted to have them on the tree all by themselves! They turned out fun and modern and colorful and I’m just totally into it. We decided the only other things the tree needed were some sparkly picks, and a little bit of ribbon to reinforce the ombre colors. See? Simple. Rad.

We’ll be sharing the tutorial for coloring the clear ornaments soon. It’s kind of self explanatory but we learned a couple of tips along the way that were beyond helpful since we were painting so many. (I think all in all we colored around 50 or so!) xoxo

  1. Wow, I can´t believe Christmas is already starting to arrive…but I love it! I have also always been one of those types of people that starts listening to Christmas music in November. My excuse has always been, as soon as Christmas music enters one radio station it is okay to listen to, and that usually is the first of November! The tree you have chosen to make is beautiful, I love the simplicity of it and the different shades of blue.

  2. I am the same way! My fiancé it always surprised for some reason when the tree and piles of Christmas things get dragged out of storage the day after Halloween- but it is my favorite time of year, and I get so happy, so he always is a good sport and goes along with it.

  3. I LOVE the tray; is it a DIY or do you know where I can purchase it?
    Also I LOVE the tree and am super excited for the Christmas season. The tree looks stunning!

  4. what brand and colors of paints did you use for this project? Can’t wait to see your tips and tricks for coloring clear glass ornaments. I have always wanted to do that and I think this might be the year to do it! Your tree looks fantastic !
