TEAL HALLOWEEN CHRISTMAS TREE IDEAS
To transform this teal artificial Christmas tree for Halloween, I wanted to add simple decorations that really popped. I stuck with a dash of black and white with a little teal. Aside from the BOO-tiful tree topper, I used only 4 simple Halloween decorations to complete this cute look. Easy, right? I made them all in one day as I watched Edward Scissorhands and the decorated while listening to The Nightmare Before Christmas soundtrack. That's how I do. Now let's get to it.
First up, I wanted to share the exact teal Christmas tree that I used. It can be found here. It is pretty small and can be displayed on the floor or even on some tabletops. It's 54" / 4.5".
Make sure to scroll down my post for the actual shopping list for this teal Halloween tree that I decorated. The list includes the simple DIY materials for your convenience.
BEST HALLOWEEN TREE TOPPER
If you are looking for Halloween tree toppers, you are probably not going to find that much. So, it might take a little thinking outside of the box. I took a chance and went BIG with a large Ghost Pinata for the tree topper. You probably already know that is my fav go-to for every holiday. Since this tree is only 4.5', it was kind of risky. BUT I could not find any smaller pinatas that I fell in love with and being in love with the topper is more important than functionality (in my crazy world anyway).
This is the handmade Ghost Pinata I used here on Etsy.. I asked for the bow to be teal instead of pink and the seller willingly was able to meet my request. Be sure to send a message first if you are interested in buying one just in case.
Getting the piñata to stay on top of a tree has been fairly easy for me. I simply cut out the bottom of the piñata to fit the top of the tree. Then I just kind of position it over the treetop. I haven’t needed anything else to get it to stay in place other than a snug fit. So make sure to test before you cut out the entire bottom of your piñata.
HALLOWEEN CHRISTMAS TREE DECORATIONS
DIY GHOST ORNAMENTS
- Ghost Cookie Cutter or Template
- White Glitter Foam
- Black Paint Marker or Sharpie
Other tools you will need are scissors and glue. I used a glue gun.
I used my ghost cookie cutter to make the shape. I pressed it into the back of the foam sheets to make an imprint and then I trimmed them out with scissors.
Then, hand draw a cute little ghost face with black paint marker or a sharpie. Any heavy duty black writing utensil should do.
Finally, make a simple loop with a small ribbon and glue or attach onto the back for hanging.
So easy and adorable. Have fun making silly ghost faces to customize.
