How to: Make a Halloween Tree

Having a Halloween Tree can really put your Halloween Decorations over the top. Making a Halloween tree is quick and easy and can be done in less than one hour.

We have partnered with JOANN to do this fun Halloween tree but all opinions are my own.

Doing a Halloween tree looks hard and over the top, but you can do your own Halloween tree with only a few items. I want to show you my easy tips on how to do your own Halloween tree.

Halloween Tree Materials:

Step 1:

Lay out all of your Halloween decor into piles of like-size items. I purchased all of the items from JOANN. I got variety of different items so that it would look unique from all sides. I put the mesh and the ribbon in it’s own pile as well.

Step 2: Start with the mesh or the ribbon.

I used two rolls of the Maker’s Halloween Mesh Ribbon 10”x30′-Thin Black & White Stripes a my 7-foot tree. When I am adding mesh or ribbon to the tree, I like to twist it so that the mesh would have a bit more texture. I also like to tuck the ribbon into several different spots. It will create a bubble effect as you tuck it toward the center of the tree. I worked the mesh around the tree to create each bubble. This will look a bit odd but once you start to add in other items you will see how good the bubble look will look once other pieces are on.

Step 3: Add in the big items

I like to use a few oversized items instead of using a ton of small pieces which is why I like to lay everything out with like sized items. This way you see which items to use in each area. You want to space out your larger items as you go. When I add in the bigger items, I use the tree branches to help secure the items onto the tree. If you have really big items, you may need to use wire to attach to the Halloween tree. With my Halloween tree, I just secured the Halloween decor items with the tree branches. The oversized pieces that I chose were The Boneyard 36″ Poseable Skeleton BonesMaker’s Halloween Animated MirrorMaker’s Halloween Broom Wall Decor-Flying Lessons By Appointment Only, Maker’s Halloween Hocus Pocus Wall Decor, and Maker’s Halloween Bat Wall Decor-Trick or Treat.

I love these five items because all of them are a great size and they all look really different.

Step 4: Add in the filler pieces.

After the oversized items were all added in, it was time to add some of the filler pieces into the Halloween tree. I used The Boneyard Ghostly Garland Bones  and a few of the Maker’s Halloween Fancy Skull Ornaments. I love these little skull ornaments! They are so cute and the perfect filler item for the Halloween tree.

Step 5: Add branches and sprays to the top

I like to add texture and bit more height to the Halloween tree or any tree for that matter. For this tree, I used five of the Maker’s Halloween Candy Corn Sprays. I love that these branches have a bit of color and have great texture to them. Next, I just stuck the spray into the top of the tree.  I was able to just shove the spray into the top and it was wedged in really good, so I did not have to wire it on.  I also added a Maker’s Halloween Critter Black Owl Large. I love that the owl is perfectly perched on the top of the Halloween tree!

Now your cute Halloween tree is done! It looks like you spent hours decorating for Halloween and really you finished the Halloween decor in under an hour by doing this cute Halloween tree! It is so fun to make and makes a big impact! You can place it near your front door for trick-or-treaters to see or you can find a cute little corner of your home to put it in!
