This Halloween Christmas Tree was so fun to make and super inexpensive! It is filled with the perfect Halloween decorations from the Dollar Tree!
I was asked by Hometalk to partner in the making of this Halloween Christmas Tree. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Confession, this is my first time to decorate for Halloween. I know, I know, my poor children. They have been living such a boring life without such luxuries. I kid! But in all seriousness, I have never really gotten myself together enough to make it happen but this year, we pulled out all of the stops.
A few weeks ago, I stopped into my local Dollar Tree and immediately picked up all of the fun Halloween Decorations I could find. I mean, have you stopped into a Dollar Tree lately? Let me just tell you, this is not the dollar store that I grew up with. They have really taken it up a notch.

How to Decorate your Halloween Christmas Tree
Decorating a Christmas Tree for any holiday to make it look like it came from a department store is much easier than you think! There are 3 tips that I always follow when decorating trees and they always turn out just perfect.
Before you get started, lay out all of your decorations so you have a good idea of what your options are. There is nothing worse than getting to the end of your decorating and realizing you forgot one of your favorite pieces in the bottom of the box.
Top 3 Tips for Decorating a Halloween Tree
- Start at the Top! When decorating a tree, always start at the top. When you start from the top, it gives you a great idea of where you want to go from here. The tree is the cherry on top so you always want to make sure it’s just right.
- Add Ribbon: Make sure that before you put any “ornaments” on the tree that you add ribbon of different sizes. For this tree, I added a gingham ribbon as well as the Creepy Cloth. Again, this makes the tree look full.
- Use BIG Pieces: When decorating a tree, add large pieces. The large pieces cover large parts of the tree and really help to make it look professional.
- Florals: Adding florals to a tree adds another dimension and adds even more coverage. For this tree I used black flowers with eye balls as well as black glitter branches.
- Fillers and Ornaments: Now it’s finally time to add your smaller ornaments. Once all of your larger pieces and ribbon are on the tree it’s time to fill. Be creative with your ornaments and spread them throughout the entire tree.
This tree was so fun to decorate and my girls just love it! I think we are ready to have a party!
