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
- Christmas Tree (Noble Fir 7.5 foot pre-lit tree)
- DIY Color glaze glass ornament Candies
- Paper jack-o-lanterns cutouts
- Paper spiderweb cutouts
- Paper word art cutouts
- Paper Happy Halloween Banner Garland
- DIY Eyeball ornaments
- Black and Orange Tulle
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.

I'm sharing a few mini tutorials today so you can make your own fun Halloween ornaments.
- Wrap the tree with black and orange tulle first. Add any additional streamers or decorative ribbons before adding ornaments.
- 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.
- Eyeball Bats
Using a plastic eyeball, cut out 2 bat wings and glue to either side of the eyeball. Glue a hanger or thread look to the top of the eyeball.
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.
- Various word art
Cut word art from cardstock and place in branches of the tree.
- Jack-o-lantern paper cutouts
Use this free SVG cut out to create mini jack-o-lanterns with a variety of mix and match face cutouts. Place in the tree branches.

Cut out paper spiderwebs using white cardstock and your Cricut machine and add them to your tree.
- DIY Happy Halloween Banner

- 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.
