Spread Cheer This Season With Beautiful, Realistic Trees From Michaels

The holiday season is almost here, which means it’s time to start thinking about how to deck those halls. As I start planning my Christmas decor each year, one of my first stops is always Michaels. With a huge selection of gorgeous artificial trees in various styles, sizes and colors, Michaels has become my go-to for finding the perfect centerpiece for my home during the most wonderful time of the year.

As an avid Christmas decorator, I know how important the tree is to setting the ambiance for the whole season. While I love the look and scent of real trees, the convenience of artificial trees keeps me coming back to Michaels year after year. I don’t have to worry about needles dropping everywhere or drying out a real tree when I’ve got so much else going on this busy season. With an artificial tree from Michaels, I can fluff those branches to fullness again and again for seasons to come.

But convenience only goes so far if the trees don’t look good. With options from brands like Balsam Hill, National Tree Company, and Northlight, Michaels has the most realistic artificial trees I’ve found. I’m picky about the color and fullness of the branches, the overall shape and proportions, and the sturdiness of the stand. Michaels trees check all my boxes. Their exclusive Northlight and Balsam Hill Signature trees are some of my favorites.

Over the years, I’ve purchased flocked, frosted, pencil, cone-shaped, corner and slim profile trees in sizes from 2 feet up to 9 feet tall. Whether I’m decorating a tabletop or a two-story foyer, Michaels has the perfect artificial Christmas tree for the space. Beyond the basics, they also offer unique options like upside down trees, colorful trees, and even trees styled with birch bark or decorated with pinecones. There’s truly something for every taste and style.

From classic green firs to sparkling frosted and tinsel options, now I can match my Christmas tree to any decorative theme or color palette I choose. I love being able to find on-trend rose gold, champagne and candy apple red trees from Balsam Hill. Their washed linen and chalk-painted trees are gorgeous modern options too. For more traditional holiday style, Michaels has you covered with pine, spruce and fir trees. Whether my inspiration comes from a Christmas carol, a favorite holiday movie, or just those vintage blown glass ornaments handed down from Grandma, I know I’ll find the perfect tree at Michaels.

To make selection easy, Michaels offers Christmas trees in a range of heights and fullness. From tabletop trees under 3 feet to showstopping 9-footers with thousands of branch tips, there are so many options to accommodate any space. I appreciate how Michaels details dimensions, tip counts, tapering, pedestal or stake bases, and folded versus hinged branches. This helps me choose the right tree size for my ceilings, and make sure I find one full enough to hold all my treasured ornaments. Helpful customer images also provide realistic previews of how full and lifelike the trees appear when decorated and lit.

Of course, I can’t talk about Michaels Christmas trees without mentioning the convenience of pre-lit options! I love being able to purchase a tree with lights already attached. For me, it’s worth the extra investment not to have to untangle strings of lights and individually place each bulb on my tree. Michaels carries scores of pre-lit artificial trees in multiple heights and lighting colors. Some even have pre-lit flocked branches for a frosty, snow-covered look.

With the lighting done for me, all that’s left is for me to add my treasured decorations! I have such fun unwrapping each ornament and finding the perfect spot on my Michaels Christmas tree to showcase these memories and heirlooms. The sturdy branches and tipped design hold even my heaviest ornaments securely in place. I never have to worry about them sliding off.

And since no tree is complete without a gorgeous tree topper, I always browse the stunning tree toppers at Michaels too. From glittering stars to elegant angels, sparkling snowflakes and bright holiday bows, they have so many options to give my tree that perfect finishing touch. For a more modern or minimalist look, I opt for simple mini tree topper lights.

Beyond the tree itself, Michaels offers everything else I need for Christmas tree decorating success. With rows of perfectly coordinated ornaments, garlands, tree skirts, stockings and decorative accents, I can pull together a cohesive theme more easily. I always find the trendiest new styles here too. This year, I’m loving the bohemian, celestial and rustic woodland themes.

I’m also excited to take advantage of special sales and loyalty program perks. Signing up for the Michaels Rewards program is a must to maximize savings. Members get early access to promotions, coupons, and even free shipping sometimes. Around the holidays, Michaels usually offers tiered discounts like 10-20% off any one tree, or 25-30% off when you spend $150 or more on trees and trim. Those big savings help extend my decorating budget.

Between the convenience of online shopping and helpful experts at my local store, Michaels makes it so easy to get everything I need for Christmas all in one place. I’ve seen their in-store holiday events and decorating classes really take off over the past few years too. It’s fun to sip hot cocoa while learning new ornament crafts and tree decorating tips fromMichaels’ team of seasonal set designers and stylists. They offer both in-person and virtual decorating classes – a great perk for crafty types like me!

With all the selection, quality and value at Michaels, why would I go anywhere else for my artificial Christmas tree? No matter what type of holiday look I’m going for each year, I know I’ll find trees, ornaments, lights and everything in between to make it magical. Michaels is my holiday decor headquarters, especially when it comes to the perfect Christmas tree for any festive theme. Their top brands, broad selection, sales events and decorating inspiration truly make Michaels the ideal one-stop shop.

This year, I’m thinking of going with a champagne and rose gold theme for a glamorous look. I saw a stunning 7.5 ft slim Balsam Hill tree online with frosted champagne branches and over 1,500 branch tips – should be perfect! Maybe I’ll take a Christmas tree decorating class at my local Michaels to get some pro tips before I deck those boughs. Whatever tree and theme I choose, I know it’s going to be a beautiful Christmas with Michaels.

Ready to get inspired for the holidays at Michaels? Here are some of my top tips and tricks to make the most of Michaels Christmas trees and décor this season:

Consider Height and Fullness First When Choosing Your Tree

Make sure the tree is appropriate for your ceiling height. Measure the space in advance, and look for details on folded versus hinged branches. This impacts fullness. A good rule is 100 branch tips per foot of tree. Go fuller if you have a lot of ornaments.

Flocked and Frosted Trees Add Instant Magic

Flocked trees have snow-dusted branches for that wintery feel. Frosted options shine with glittering tinsel and silvery hues. Both instantly make your decor look more magical! They coordinate well with icy color palettes.

Pre-Lit Trees Save Time

Untangling lights and decorating each branch takes a while. For convenience, choose a pre-lit artificial Christmas tree. Make sure lights are evenly distributed from top to bottom. LEDs last longer than standard bulbs.

Choose Ornaments That Complement Your Tree

Pick ornaments in the right size, shape and weight for your tree branches. Heavier vintage ornaments work better on sturdier branch tips. More delicate ornaments look lovely on softer, flexible branches.

Tree Skirts Finish the Look

A tree skirt covers the trunk while defining the space. Match your skirt’s color and pattern to your ornaments. Velvet and brocade fabrics add elegance. For a farmhouse feel, try burlap or muslin.

Add Tree Toppers for Height and Interest

Finish off your look by decorating the top of your tree. Tree toppers range from stars and angels to birds and bows. Lights or crystal tree topper instead of fabric or figural options.

Take Advantage of Sales and Loyalty Perks

Sign up for a Michaels Rewards membership to get coupons, discounts and early access to promotions. Buy on Black Friday or Cyber Week for the best deals. Clip coupons mailed or emailed to loyal customers.

Shop Both In-Store and Online

Browse artificial Christmas trees in person to see choices, quality and size. Order online for convenience, more selection, product reviews and easy delivery. Stores can ship items bought online.

Come for Holiday Inspiration

Check Michaels’ website or ask in store about free holiday decorating classes offered each season. Enjoy demonstrations for wreath and garland making, ornament crafting, and more while getting inspired.

Select a Theme to Guide Your Decor

Pick a style like rustic, traditional, whimsical or modern. Choose ornaments, trees and accents in coordinating colors like red and green, silver, or champagne and rose gold. Repeat motifs like snowflakes or plaid.

However you choose to deck those halls this year, let your Christmas spirit come to life with artificial trees and decorations from Michaels. Make the holidays merry and bright with quality, selection and inspiration you’ll only find at Michaels.
