Pull out that tinsel Christmas tree for this fun idea- A whimsical Halloween tree with spooky vintage details including witches brooms, distressed signs, rustic bells, thick ribbon, book page accents, and topped with a witch’s hat tree topper.
I love Halloween! I really, really love it. Always have. Every year I decorate for Halloween for the month of October and it is one of my very favorite months of the whole year. My littles are like their mama, and have been begging me to put up the Halloween tree since the beginning of September. They were so excited when we finally pulled it out.
This year’s tree is very similar to last year’s (see that here). I added spooky vintage details including witches brooms, distressed signs, rustic bells, thick ribbon, book page accents, and topped with a witch’s hat tree topper. I bought my tree 11 years ago after Christmas on clearance, but I found it online for you! It doesn’t sound like it from the description, but if you read the reviews it describes the color I have perfeclty- more of a warm silver or champagne color. I love this color of tree! I always pull it into my daughter’s room for the Christmas season and decorate it with German glass glitter ornaments, blush pinks and creams.
One of the things I love about October is just how cozy it starts to feel. A Halloween tree might seem like kind of a weird idea to some people, but I love the warm sparkly glow it brings to our home. Paired with candles, it just feels so right. We pull out our Halloween children’s books and we love to read and snuggle under the tree with our littles.
Speaking of warm and cozy, soup is our favorite food in the fall. If you haven’t tried my Italian Peasant Soup recipe, you are missing out!
This year I finally bought myself one of these fun skeletons. I have wanted one for years and finally did it! The littles have had so much fun posing him all around the house. What can I say, I just LOVE Halloween.
I shared this free printable Happy Halloween banner last week (HERE) and I love its simple, classic design. It can work with a range of decor styles from romantic to trendy to elegant. I think it would also be cute on a Halloween tree.
My vintage amber glass bottles are another favorite fall thing to pull out each year. I love the way the light shines through them in front of these windows. It creates a very warm atmosphere.
If you are going to put together a Halloween tree, you can check out more of the process in my saved Instagram Stories. Here are a few more details!
I had a hard time finding many of these items online (I have collected them over the years mostly from local stores) but I will link to a bunch of fun items I think would work well on a tree below. I also added a couple extras from this space in case you needed the links.
And we haven’t just been enjoying fall indoors. We had such a fun and magical little evening campfire in the backyard under the twinkle lights, sipping warm apple cider and snuggling in flannel blankets (tutorial HERE). But I will share more about that later. I love this season!
Happy Haunting friends!
Here are a bunch more Halloween homes you will love! There is so much inspiration in these lovely spaces that, I promise, will leave you even more excited for the season.
