Christmas trees were introduced to the United States in the early 1800s but first appeared in Germany in the 16th century. Now, the popular tradition is something that thousands of families take part in every year around the holidays.

But what if I told you that it’s never too early to set up your tree? You might be thinking, “Hey Jill, can I at least get through Halloween first? Or Thanksgiving?”

While I fully agree that each holiday deserves its time in the spotlight, it’s never a bad time to set up the good ol’ tree.

“Holiday trees” are one of the biggest decor trends of this day and now is the perfect time to jump on the bandwagon with a Halloween tree!

How to Make Your Own Halloween Tree

Instead of picking out a traditional tree from the tree farm or decorating it with chic winter-time ornaments, let ghouls, witches, and vibrant fall colors give you some decor inspiration.

Opt for a faux white, black, orange, or purple Christmas tree and decorate it in festive shapes like bats, pumpkins, and ghosts.

I found this black one on Wayfair—a perfect foundation for DIY autumn ornaments, leaf garland or even hanging candy!

Find the pumpkins HERE.

You can also get some faux pumpkins to place underneath your Halloween tree (kind of like Christmas presents). It’s a simple and festive way to make it relevant for the holiday!

Find the harvest mix HERE.

I also like the packs that contain some variety like this option which includes gords, pumpkins, and even pinecones.

Plus, you can use it around your home in other fall and Thanksgiving decor!

I still haven’t put up my own Halloween tree yet (baseball games, work, baking fall treats), but it’s not too late!

More Holiday Tree Ideas

The fun doesn’t stop there. You can create a tree for just about every holiday!

One of my close friends bought a basic white tree and swapped out the ornaments year-round. She found some heart additions for Valentine’s Day, a few strings of clover beads for St. Patrick’s day and some petite American flags for the Fourth of July.

Do you have a fun tradition this time of year? If not, this might be your next festive project!
