Today I've partnered with Treetopia and other creative bloggers to share some fun Halloween Tree ideas. Treetopia sent me a fabulous new Noble Fir 7.5 foot pre-lit tree along with a variety of color glaze glass ornaments. I'll show you what I created with these traditional holiday accents… so simple, you'll make a ton of your own! Check our even more Halloween tree fun at the end of this article.

DIY Not-so-Spooky Halloween Tree

Up until this year, I didn't create a ton of Halloween decor around my house. My focus has always been on costumes and class parties. But decorating doesn't have to be complicated nor take a ton of time. I love black and white with orange Halloween decor, so this tree design is inspired by a classic color palette and easy to create Halloween ornaments – including some fun ideas I made with my Cricut Machine… of course, right?

Details to create this Halloween Tree

You can customize the look of your own Halloween tree by creating and adding in ornaments and decor accents you love. Change up the colors or go classic black,white and orange like I did. Create your own personalized ornaments, add festive splashes of color and have fun with it!

Decorations to Use & Materials

DIY craft tip: to make all of these ornaments, I used either Aleene's tacky glue or hot glue. I don't like waiting for glue to dry, so hot glue comes in really handy!

About my tree: The tree is pretty all by itself. It's easy to set up and so full. It comes pre-let so you don't even have to add lights to it if you don't want. Although, if you'd like, you can absolutely add extra lights.

Instructions

I'm sharing a few mini tutorials today so you can make your own fun Halloween ornaments.

  1. Wrap the tree with black and orange tulle first. Add any additional streamers or decorative ribbons before adding ornaments.
  2. Make all the ornaments and then decorate your tree!
  • DIY Color glaze glass ornament Candies
    Using tulle, carefully wrap the glass ornament and tie on opposite sides of the ball to create a candy look. Hang on the tree with the standard ornament hanger. This is a golden ornament in the color glaze glass ornament set which also comes with red, green (also on my tree) and blue.

  • Eyeballs
    Using a plastic eyeball and a chenille stem, wrap the chenille stem in a swirl at the top of the eyeball and glue in place. Continue to wrap stem along the back of the eyeball and swirl under the eyeball, gluing in place. Leave remaining stem to wrap around and attach to a tree branch.

  • Make bows, add ball ornaments and other accents.
    To fill in more space, make bows out of tulle or ribbon and place on the tree. Grab other fun Halloween accents or even place plastic eyeballs all on their own. You can have a ton of fun decorating this not-so-spooky Halloween tree with paper cutouts and ornament candies! I'd love to hear how you create your own.
