Think decorated trees are reserved only for Christmas? Think again! Step outside the box this Halloween by creating a festively spooky DIY Halloween tree! This is such a fun project that is perfect for sprucing up any interior space.
DIY Halloween Tree Supplies:
- Darice Assorted Wood Star Cutouts.
- Darice Extra Fine Glitter: Lime Green, Gold, Copper, and Deep Purple.
- Mod Podge.
- Foam Brush.
- Heavy Duty Hole Punch.
- Darice 3/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon: Apple Green and Orange.
- Darice 24″ Black Canadian Pine Tree.
- Darice Battery-Operated LED Mini Skull Light Strand.
- Darice 4 3/4″ Crow.
- Darice Metal Bucket.
To begin, create the star ornaments for the DIY Halloween tree. To do so, use the foam brush to paint a thin layer of the Mod Podge onto the wood star cutouts. Sprinkle a layer of the glitter evenly over the Mod Podge, and shake off the excess. Allow to dry for 30 minutes before applying another layer of Mod Podge and glitter over the first layer. Allow to dry for an additional 30 minutes before applying an even coat of Mod Podge over each piece to prevent any glitter from rubbing off the finished ornaments. Set aside to dry overnight.
Begin by wrapping the tree with the mini skull lights. Place the tree into the metal bucket, nestling the battery pack for the lights alongside the tree base in the bucket to keep it hidden from sight.
Finish by affixing the black crow embellishment at the top of the tree.
These star ornaments would also be fun used as a vase filler, or even strung on a garland and hung over a mantel or doorway.
This unexpected way of decorating for Halloween is a fun twist on typical traditions. I hope you’re inspired to start a new Halloween decorating tradition in your own home this year! Consider adding this DIY Halloween wreath to your decor as well. Covered in creepy crows, it would coordinate with this Halloween tree perfectly!
