Let's Decorate a Halloween Tree-These 50 Pieces Will Make it Fabulous!!!

Here's a fun Halloween decoration that you can use not only this year but year after year.  Love a Halloween tree with all the spooky characters hanging from the branches....there's even orange and yellow leaves that you can attach to the branches.  The kids could even help decorate this tree. Great for your entry way, family room or even the kitchen.

A Halloween tree is super easy to make. Just gather up some small branches and twigs. Then place stones, rocks or sand into a container and place the branches down into them and they'll stay in place.  The branches here were sprayed with black spray paint but you could leave them their natural color. 

Check out all 8 of our favorite Halloween characters.  Each one has a small hole so you can thread the twine through and tie in a loop for hanging.  You get 3 of each one for a total of 24.

We used some of these same characters for our fun HALLOWEEN Cupcake Toppers and wraps.   You'll want to check them out too. It's a simple way to make cupcakes even more fun!

We used a glue dot to adhere the leaves to the branches and it worked quite well but still allows up to move then if you aren't happy with placement. You can use a glue gun or white glue too. 12 orange and 12 yellow leaves are included. Each leaf is scored in 3 places so you can fold and give them dimension.
