My very first attempt of a Halloween tree is now taking pride of place in our kitchen! I know .. it’s slightly nuts, but what a great excuse to get the tree up in October, right?!
And something tells me it won’t be the last time I’ve done this! I had SUCH a fun time creating some of the items on the tree. It’s only a small tree, but I think I’ve packed in a LOAD! Which also means I’ve got LOADS of photos 😉
Let me show you how all the projects we’ve been doing tie together on my kitchen Halloween tree!
How I decorated my Halloween tree
First I took some webbing and draped this around some of the lights to make it look a bit softer.
Next I used some Halloween ribbon to tuck into the tree. I start at the top of the tree and tucked in the ribbon. Create a “loop” and then take one of the branches to tuck the ribbon in. Create a further “loop” and work your way down the tree, tucking in and creating loops as you go.
The super simple black and white garland was a case of threading pom poms onto a piece of yarn. It’s a great way to add some volume and colour (which will also work perfectly when it comes to Christmas when you just change the colour scheme!)
On the areas where I tucked the ribbon in and folded the branch over, I added a few random spiders here and there.
Once the ribbon and the garland were in place I started with the bigger items on the tree. Remember those “BOO” letters we made? Not only did they look great as a display on their own, how PERFECT do they look as center stage for this tree?
filling up the smaller gaps
Which just left some of the smaller areas to fill up. Like this skeleton garland from Poundland. I snipped the skeletons off the garland and tucked in some of the fellas to “hang out” or just sit in the tree.
Next up, these DIY ghosts that we made recently. They started off as a garland, but I decided to hang them in the tree individually.
To finish off the top of the tree I decided on this skull which had a hole in the bottom already. It was a case of adding the skull onto the top branch and draping around a piece of black feather boa.
To add some volume around the sides, I used some glitter pipe cleaners from a craft pack I bought in the The Range. Twirl them around a pencil and stick randomly around the tree. It’s a very similar look to the ones we used on the Halloween Wreath we made recently!
I filled up one of the gaps with this quirky mini “Trick or Treat” sign. You can catch how I made it on a video here.
And finally I tucked in some random baubles here and there to fill the last spots. All I did was paint some polystyrene balls with acrylic paint. I opted for orange and black. The orange ones got some black spots (sorry, no picture of that one!) And the black one I covered in googly eyes. You can see it here in the background.
