Decorative Halloween Tree


Several years ago my niece gave me a glass Halloween ornament.  In the next few years I collect other ornaments that could be used for a Halloween tree but I had no where to put them.  I looked around in the craft stored but did not like the skinny trees that were sold for Halloween.  So, I decided to get out the spray paint and make my own.

This craft is simple and only takes a few supplies including spray paint and glitter ribbon.  I chose to paint the tree black but you could use purple or orange if you dare.

Instructions for creating a Halloween Tree

  • Purchase a mini Christmas tree with a burlap base.
Unlit Halloween Tree
  • Spray paint the green branches black and let dry.
  • Twine green mini lights around the tree branches making sure that you hide the wires.
  • Twine a black feather boa around the branches to fill in the spaces.
  • Drape a green ribbon around the tree.
  • Add decorative spiders and Halloween Ornaments
  • Top with an orange glitter bow. Instructions on creating a bow can be found on this post.
