Our Halloween Tree

For the past year,  I have been participating in craft swaps on a site called Swap-bot. Earlier this month, there was a swap for Halloween ornaments. I had never put up a Halloween tree, I had never even thought of doing so. I signed up for the swap and hosted another of my own to help get me started.  I received a bunch of awesome ornaments, made about 15 of my own, and my kids made 8 using little store bought craft kits.  My kids were absolutely ecstatic about the idea! We pulled a 2 foot tree out of our Christmas stuff and hung the ornaments.  I put a pumpkin placemat underneath it to act as well tree skirt and added a felt witch hat to the top of the tree. My kids absolutely love it and we will definitely have a Halloween tree for years to come!

  1. I love this idea!!!! (Mostly because it's a legitimate excuse to set my Christmas tree up earlier!!) Your ornaments are too cute! I may have to do this for next year.
    Happy Halloween!
