Decorating Your Halloween Tree

Updated on September 5, 2014

Halloween Trees and Ornaments

The Halloween Tree is becoming more and more popular as Halloween has grown to be the most popular holiday besides Christmas.

There are so many styles of Halloween Trees, from table top size to 6ft tall, whatever your fancy, made from twisted wires, feathers, or twigs, they can all be decorated with fun, cute or spooky ornaments.

Depending on what you prefer, you can also add garlands and twinkling lights, and maybe even some faux cobwebs.

This lens will show you a variety of ideas for decorating your tree, along with videos showing you how to make your own tree and how to make your own ornaments.

If you do not already have a tree, then it will certainly be a fun way to express yourself this Halloween.

Table top Twig Tree with bats

a quick and easy diy project

This is a container with twigs and leaves that I have in my home for Fall.

I thought it would be fun to add some little bat ornaments to the twigs. As a crafty person I have lot's of supplies at hand, so I went to find my black cardstock.

Then I found a template I liked online which I found at . This is a cute printable for the children too, the bats have faces on them. I didn't use the printable but used the bat to draw around on my black card stock using a white pencil.

Punched holes in the head or wing and threaded a stretchy transparent cord through the hole to make a hanger.

Ta da, the quickest and easiest ornament I can think of.

It's easy to make your own Halloween Tree - some videos for inspiration

Add some garland to your tree perhaps?

You could now add some garland to your tree as you may do on your Christmas tree, only there are lots of fun and spooky, creative garlands around for Halloween. For example barb wire style, or bright bead garland, skull and crossbones from wire, to black and white pom pom garland. The choices are many.

How do you decorate your Halloween Tree?

      Must share this on Facebook. My sister loves Halloween decorations, but I don't think she's ever done a Halloween Tree. Bet she does now! Happy Halloween.

      This is the first I have heard of the Halloween Tree - what a fun idea! I love the idea of keeping the decorations and putting them out every year. I can see how it is gaining popularity :)

      This gives me an excuse to start holiday decorating in October. I have never seen a Halloween Tree, but I bet a local newspaper would like to see something like this for a human interest story. Very well done, a good idea. See you around the galaxy...

      Came to visit your lens because I thought it was a really neat idea to create a Halloween tree, then I saw you'd featured my Scary Little Witch ornament from my halloween store, so how could I not give you an all round big thumbs up and a thank you! Enjoy your spooky night :)

      I had never thought about decorating a Halloween tree until visiting here. It is a very creative idea and one that allows for so many different themes and styles. Converting your twig tree into a Halloween decoration was brilliant. The nice thing about a tree is that it does not have to be expensive (as you demonstrated). Very nicely done!
