Halloween Trees

What Are Halloween Trees?

Halloween trees are a great way to decorate your house for Halloween. Have you ever been in a wood or forest at night? It can be a pretty spooky place, some trees look really scary at night and it’s easy to think of them harboring evil spirits.

It’s because of this that people started to use gnarly looking trees as decor for their Halloween parties and before you knew it a new industry had been developed – the Halloween tree industry!

There are so many different types of Halloween trees to choose from including black trees (which can double up as a Christmas tree), small tabletop trees, large trees, very sparse looking trees …… I’ve even heard of people getting funky looking branches from nearby wooded areas and popping them in a pot and decorating them.

There are two types of Halloween tree – the table top type that just comes out at Halloween to add some Halloween decor to the room and the full size ones. The full size ones double as a Halloween tree and also as a gothic or anti-Christmas tree in December. I have a selection of both types of Halloween trees here for you to look at and I hope you find one that you like.

Halloween Decorating Ideas – Halloween Tree Ornaments

We’ve discussed having a Halloween Tree on another post, but what about getting ornaments to hang on your tree?   You can have a small Halloween tree or just get a full sized black Christmas tree and use it as a Halloween tree as well.   There are lots of different ways to decorate it and you can get lots of ideas on my Halloween Christmas Tree Ornaments webpage.

There are lots of different types of ornaments that you can use like this one –


On the webpage I’ve linked to above there are lots of different Halloween tree ornaments that you can use to decorate for Halloween from pumpkins to ghosts, witches to black cats and more.   I love the idea of these ornaments because if you enjoy Halloween like my daughter then you can ‘recycle’ these ornaments for Christmas and I love things that can be reused more than once a year especially my Halloween decor.

Do You Have a Spooky Halloween Tree?

Halloween TreesMost people put up a Christmas tree at Christmas, but what about having a Halloween tree at Halloween?

There are some really cool Halloween trees available and if you’ve ever been in a wooded area at night you know just how spooky trees can seem (especially when they have no leaves left on them!), which is what makes them ideal for your Halloween decor.

You can drape spiderwebs over the Halloween tree or even get some Halloween tree ornaments, but sometimes it can just be cool to leave them like they are for that desolate tree look!

If you don’t know what sort of Halloween tree you’d like to have why don’t you check out some of the alternatives that are available and work out how to fit a Halloween tree into your Halloween decor – you will not be disappointed.   Here’s a link for you – Halloween Trees.   This has a range of really cool Halloween trees for you to browse and decide on the type that will suit you best.

Let me know if you already use a Halloween tree and if you do is it a big Halloween tree or a table top one.

My Favorite Halloween Tree……..at the moment anyways!

I like the look of the Halloween tree featured below, it’s a bigger one (table top trees aren’t my favorite, I like a taller one) and it’s sound activated emitting wailing and an evil laugh, it also moves. I think it sounds fantastic, although my poor dog would probably NOT appreciate it!

Decorating Your Halloween Tree

The other fun thing about having a Halloween tree is the decorating of it.   Now some of them are fine just as they are, but other trees are fun to decorate and there are lots of different ways to do this.

Add some cobweb style netting over your tree, hang a few plastic spiders as well for a lovely Halloween inspired touch.

You can even get Halloween string lights which work like Christmas fairy lights on your tree from pumpkins to spiders, mummies to skeletons there are lots of choose from.   I also like the idea of getting a large Halloween tree or a black Christmas tree which will do double duty at both Halloween & Christmas.   With a larger tree you can add some Halloween Tree ornaments and there are lots of these to choose from.
