2008 HALLOWEEN TREE


The "Morphing Spooky Black Tree" made for a really spooky addition to our Halloween festivities! This five foot tall metal and plastic Halloween tree is covered with orange and purple bulbs.

The upper reaches of the branches mysteriously change from black to create an illuminating effect! Since the branches are bendable to some extent, you can easily re-shape this Halloween decoration to fit close to the wall if you are short on space.

Halloween Tree

For ornaments we chose to use an assortment of small Halloween decorations such as plastic spiders, rats, bats, skulls, etc. An artificial crow looks great perched on one of the limbs.

For the base we cut out a two and a half foot in diameter circle of black felt to act as the skirt. On top of the tree skirt we made a blanket of Spanish moss, available at most craft stores.

Finally, for the final effect, we arraigned the contents of a "Bag Of Bones" around the base of the tree. The pack includes a collection of twenty-eight pieces of assorted foam bones and skull.

As a final effect, we placed a Mister Kool low-laying fog machine behind the base of the tree to create a very eerie special effect.

 

Safety Tips - Never leave the lights or any lighted decorations plugged in when you leave the house. Its a good idea to attach a smoke detector to the wall or ceiling above the tree. Make sure that plugs plugged into outlets and/or extension cords are plugged in safely. Always have a fire extinguisher handy during the holidays.
