Recently we were making some hanging Halloween decorations from our latest Baker Ross box, and I was trying to think of somewhere that they could be hung for display. Then I remembered the simple homemade Easter tree that I made earlier in the year, and how it's a shame that it spends most of the year packed away. So I decided to bring it out and see what I could do to make it look a little more spooky for Halloween!
You can find the instructions for making the basic Halloween tree here - how to make a wire tree for displaying ornaments. All you need is some sturdy wire and tissue paper, white paint, a small flower pot for the stand and any other decorations that you have around to make your tree look nice and spooky.
I found some thin black netting which I wrapped around the flower pot base, then I covered the Easter straw inside with some dyed orange rice and pumpkin seeds. This is actually part of our Halloween sensory tub, which I made a few years back and is still looking good!
We are still building our collection of hanging Halloween decorations, something that I need to get on with! The colourful skulls are from a Baker Ross kit and the other hanging black spider decoration was from Asda last year.
At the base of the tree is a small plastic pumpkin, and the pumpkin gift bag was a simple craft that I created last year for the Twinkl blog.
It will be set out on the sideboard in our house and I'm sure it will be added to as the season progresses!
