Decorate An Orange Tree For Spooky Halloween Decor

Who says you can only decorate a tree at Christmas?

Most of us put up trees for Christmas. But in the last year or two, it seems that there is a new tree trend that has been sweeping the country. And that would be the trend of the Halloween tree. If you love both Halloween and Christmas then you’ll love the idea of decorating a tree for Halloween.

While you can purchase a wholly-decorated Halloween tree from retailers such as Walmart, Target, and Treetopia, you can also DIY one at home. The idea is simple: you trade out the traditional Christmas lights and ornaments for more spooky decorations like jack-o-lanterns, bats, and ghosts. Anything ghoulish that will give your tree that Halloween feel. And the sky is the limit when it comes to creativity. There is no right or wrong way to come up with a Halloween tree. After all, it’s your decoration, decorate it to make you happy.

But if you need some inspiration, check out some Halloween trees below:

1. Black and White

A classy twist on Halloween decor, we imagine that Jack Skeleton would be proud of this black and white tree.

2. Space-saving Sizes

If you don’t have a whole lot of room don’t be afraid to go for small plug-ins that are in the shape of Halloween trees.

4. Pumpkins Everywhere

There is no such thing as too many pumpkins around Halloween, so why not use them to build a Halloween tree?

Happy Halloween!!! Please read 🎃 . Thank you everyone so much for this Halloween season! You've helped me reach some of my account goals with all your likes and follows and I got to work with @treetopia on a tree, which was one of my biggest goals this year! My trees were featured in articles all over the internet, including on @betterhomesandgardens, I was interviewed for @nypost, and even featured on national TV on The Real daytime! Some truly incredible accomplishments that I'm so proud and shocked to achieve! I'm so thankful that so many of you like what I'm doing enough to help me get to these places I thought I could only dare to dream! 🎃🌲 . While it has been a great Halloween in some regards, I desperately need time away to refocus on my mental and physical health. Life has been really tough behind the scenes this entire year and I need to recalibrate, so it will be rather quiet here for an indeterminate period of time as I focus on healing. I will of course be back with my November tree in a few days and December's tree is going to beat the pants off naughty listers! 🎃🌲👹 . To all those who don't spook all year, I'd like to ask you to mute rather than unfollow my account so you can easily find me when you're ready for spooky season or just need a dose of Halloween! If you do spook all year, I'll be here mashing up holidays and seasons for you year round. I hope you'll all choose to stick with me as I decorate, thrift, and create throughout the year! 🎃🎄👹🧡💗👯‍♀️🎆🎃 . . . #everydayishalloween #vintagehalloween #halloween2019 #halloweeniseveryday #halloween365 #spookyseason #spookyallyear #halloweenlifestyle #halloweenhomemaker #halloweenhome #halloweenlover #halloweenhygge #halloweenenthusiast #halloweenaccount #halloweenismyfavorite #halloweenobsessed #halloweenroom #pumpkins #halloweentree #halloweenfun #halloweenideas #halloweendecorations #halloweendecor #halloweendecorating #halloweenallyear #fleamarketdecor #vintagedecor

5. Simple and Elegant

As you can see, this Halloween tree is in a nursery. But its simple decor could also lend itself to any part of the home if you want more of an autumn tree rather than a specifically scary Halloween tree.

6. Think Pink

Most of the time we see Halloween trees sticking to the traditional orange and black color schemes. But don’t be afraid to get spooky in non-traditional colors, such as pink!

7. Fairy Lights

No one says that you have to decorate a traditional Christmas tree with Halloween decor. Simply adding fairy lights to a small tree and adding it to your aesthetics is always a good idea.

8. Less is More

Some people like to add decorations until you can’t see the tree anymore. Others believe less is more. Either way, we love the spooky look!
