Have you heard of Halloween Trees? They’re a new trend that I’m totally here for and they’re the perfect excuse to put your Christmas Tree up two months early. These 25 stunning #halloweentree examples will inspire you to get your tree out this weekend and start decorating today for Halloween.
I was browsing Instagram the other day and came across a hashtag that Blew. My. Mind. #halloweentrees. I was intrigued immediately. Are Halloween Trees really a thing? I knew instantly I had to get on board.
Sure, I’m still doing my Advent Calendars and counting down the days until Christmas. But in 2020, we need all the joy we can get and I’m certainly not going to miss out on the joys of decorating for Halloween.
That’s going to be my weekend project and I’ll update this post to show my tree when it’s done, but in the meantime, why don’t you enjoy these 25 trees I’ve saved to use as inspiration when I go shopping for my supplies this weekend?
1. Elegant Pink and Black Halloween Tree
I mentioned earlier that I downsized and got rid of my Christmas Tree a couple of years ago, but I have a little more room in our new Nashville loft and I keep eyeing this pink tree on Amazon. I’ve always wanted a pink or white tree since I was a little girl visiting my Aunt’s authentically mid-century modern house during the holidays. Knowing I can use it for Halloween too (even though it’s pink, not a traditional Halloween color) might finally convince me to click “Add to Cart.”
I love the elegance of this tree with the Black and White pumpkins and vintage cameras as decorations. You could keep this tree up after Halloween too.
2. Simple White Spider Halloween Tree
This white tree celebrates Fall and Halloween with a simple fall leaf banner and a Raven tree topper.
3. Spooky Gold Halloween Tree
This gold tree could look shiny and elegant for Christmas, but just look how spooky it can be with the inclusion of spiders and a strategically placed hockey mask.
4. Simple Halloween Tree with Pumpkin Decorations
You don’t have to spend a lot of money or create an elaborate tree to make a Halloween Tree. Simply put up your normal artificial Christmas Tree and decorate with pumpkin decorations you can easily find at the dollar store. I love using the witch’s hat as the tree topper.
5. Nightmare Before Christmas Tree
Check out this creative Nightmare Before Christmas-themed Halloween tree. A regular Christmas tree becomes Halloween ready with a Jack Skellington doll wrapped around it. The silver and black ornaments can even be used at Christmas.
6. Black and White Nightmare Before Christmas Halloween Tree
Here’s another riff on the Nightmare Before Christmas tree. This one leans into a black and white palette to echo the vibe of the movie.
7. Little Shop of Horrors Halloween Tree
Nightmare Before Christmas isn’t the only movie that makes a good theme for a Halloween Tree. This stunning monster pays homage to the movie Little Shop of Horrors.
8. Disney-Themed Halloween Tree
A Halloween tree is a great way to show off a collection of similar items, such as the Disney Halloween decorations featured on this tree. I also love the felt candy corn ornaments here.
9. Vintage Mask Halloween Tree
This tree features something really scary: vintage masks from Halloween costumes in the 70s and 80s. After Halloween, all you have to do is remove the masks and other Halloween themed decor and you’re left with a tree that’s ready for Christmas.
10. Bat Wing Halloween Tree
A pair of costume bat wings provide a focal point for this spooky tree. Be sure and click through to see the Halloween themed bedroom where this tree resides!
11. Halloween Ornament Tree
I have two of these ornament trees where I hang my mother’s vintage Christmas ornaments every Christmas so I really love the idea of getting them out early to show off a collection of Halloween-themed ornaments.
12. Table Top Halloween Ornament Tree
This table-top ornament tree is half-way between a traditional ornament tree and a small Tabletop tree. It makes a beautiful backdrop for some simple lights and a collection of Halloween ornaments.
13. Minimal Ornament Tree
You don’t need to have a large collection of ornaments to show off an ornament tree. This ornament tree has simple wooden disc ornaments to pair with the other Halloween decorations. You can make your own ornaments or buy a selection of ornaments to paint yourself.
14. Tabletop Tree Filled with Ornaments
This tabletop Christmas Tree really doesn’t have anything specifically “Halloween” about it. Instead, it’s been generously decorated with a variety of Christmas Ornaments in Haloween Colors such as Orange, Gold and Black. It’s both simple and elegant.
15. Small and Full Halloween Tree
Here’s proof you can make a big impact with a small tree. This small tree is packed with ornaments and small pumpkin baskets and fits in beautifully with the Halloween-themed desk. Wouldn’t it be fun to have this as your work area?
16. Small White Halloween Tree
Here’s another small tree that makes a big impact. This white tree is beautifully decorated with Orange and Black ornaments and a plaid ribbon. Look how she uses a Halloween bucket as a tree stand. So cute!
17. Halloween Tree with Homemade Paper Decorations
This crowded tree proves that sometimes more is more. There’s something to look at no matter where you eye lands. I especially like the homemade Halloween paper decorations. You could make some similar ornaments for your tree with this free printable template.
18. Black and White Halloween Tree
You don’t have to be stuck with orange and black as your color scheme for your Halloween Tree. This stylish tree uses a black and white palette to create a spooky and elegant mood.
19. Ribbon and Skull Halloween Tree
The black and white ribbon wrapping around this tree doesn’t scream “Halloween.” But paired with black and white Mexican skull ornaments, this ribbon helps tie the whole theme together. I love the skeleton dog underneath the tree.
20. Ceramic Halloween Tree
This vintage ceramic Christmas Trees have become popular once again over the last few years. Create your own Halloween version by painting a ceramic tree black and switching out the green and red lights for orange and black ones.
21. Halloween Spider Tree
I love this Halloween Spider Tree, which can be made quite easily with a spider and web decoration draped over it.
22. Skeleton Spider Web Tree
Spider webs are used to an especially spooky effect in this tree draped with fake skeletons. Check out the floating monster focal point of this tree.
23. The Witching Hour Halloween Tree
This tree looks so ornate but if you look closely, it’s really just the perfect mix of really simple elements like pumpkin buckets and paper fall leaves. The witch’s hat on top is tilted at the perfect rakish angle.
24. Spooky Jam-Packed Halloween Tree
This spooky tree is jam-packed with ornaments, ribbons, spiders, and skeleton while a creepy life-sized doll stands watch.
25. Halloween Extravaganza Tree
You could go with a simple and minimal tree or you can go all out, like this Halloween Extravaganza Tree. The tree is filled with unique and spooky decorations, like the bouncy eyes on this tree.
This video shows how to make your own version of a tree like this one.
