Creations, Halloween Tree

I bought this “Charlie Brown look-a-like” tree with thoughts of a Halloween tree in mind.

I chose silver since it was neutral, and I wanted black ornaments to stand out.  Plus,  in case I wanted to do something else with this little tree it wouldn’t be just for Halloween~

Before I left my favorite Hobby Lobby store, I already had plans for 2 more trees…

October is full of birthdays for us, so my little Halloween tree had to first go to a birthday party or 2

The craft stores are already full of Christmas ornaments and HL has a whole section of candy themed ones and non Christmas colors.  I couldn’t resist some polka dot balls and a few swirly thingys and sweets.  I put this aqua grapevine wreath from my Spring decor around the base of the tree and filled it with white paper and foil scrunchies from my wrapping supplies.

When the celebrations were over I asked Super Boy if he wanted to help me make a Halloween tree

He went right for the skeletons and the spiders

“Wait, let’s put some ribbon on  it first,” I said

and hang these black balls…I could tell he was losing interest…black balls are boring…

“You know what Gigi! We need a graveyard!”

“You know, for all the skeletons!”

“How are we going to make a graveyard?” I asked

“We could dig up some boulders!”  Yikes! Where was my cute little craft project headed?

“You could use tin foil or rocks,” says HH jr, but I had to step in quickly with a easier better idea~

Cardstock + scissors + sharpie= tombstone!  I bent the bottom edge under an inch and secured the tombstones to the charger with some tape.

“Let’s call it Skeleton Park!” said Super Boy

“You can make ghost out of these cupcake papers,” said HH jr.  Isn’t he clever?

Lots of pumpkins!

Alas these gray ones wouldn’t be staying, nor the cute orange tray~

They were going to DD’s for her birthday~ These are my best ones yet, I had to make a lot of practice ones for me before I dared make them for her.  I used the “sew and fold” method for these.  You can see all the pumpkins and tutorials here

There are still plenty of pumpkins around

    Jenna, Adorable Halloween tree and your helper couldn’t be cuter! Good thing you had dad to the rescue to thwart his suggestion to dig up boulders 🙂 And those simple little cupcake liners as ghosts, oh so cute. I know your daughter will be thrilled with her gray pumpkins, I’m wild about the chenille one!
