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.
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 from Wayfair — a perfect foundation fro DIY autumn ornaments, leaf garland or even hanging candy!
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!
There are plenty of stores that sell them, but here’s a set that contains a variety of sizes and colors. There’s even some leaves, pinecones and acorns that can be used as decor around your home!
I still haven’t added a Halloween tree to my home yet (I blame it on lots of baseball games, work and baking tasty fall treats), but I found some amazing decor that may have me racing to put one up in the next couple of weeks!
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!
