Have you seen a Halloween Tree before? If you love Christmas trees and Halloween – why not mix up both! We love this idea! Read on for Halloween tree inspiration!

Thanks to Kayleigh, from West Sussex, who sent in this great Halloween tree idea. Let’s take a look at it…

What did you do?

For a cheap and simple autumn/Halloween tree, I collected twigs, conkers, leaves, pine cones o my dog walk.

I then filled a vase up with sand to weigh down, tied a rusted gold ribbon around the neck.

We then did other small crafts with my son to hang off the tree…. pumpkin shapes, painted ghosts (using white paint and sponge).

I drilled holes in some conkers and threaded some thread through.

We got lights from Poundland from their Halloween section, and some small pumpkins from Lidl.

We are still going to add a few other things on it (that haven’t been completed yet).

I love it because it is cheap and easy to set up and it can be adapted to any age group.
