Fall and Halloween decorating is in full swing. We're all ready for a little change of season and a little fall decor both inside and outside of our homes. In partnership with the Home Depot, we created a DIY pumpkin topiary for fall that can be swapped out for a spooky Halloween tree complete with DIY ornaments!
Head to the Home Depot to see the full video on how to build the topiary. In this post, we'll go into more detail on how to deck out your Halloween tree.
Material/Tools for Halloween Tree:
Here are the Materials needed to build complete Pumpkin Topiary. The base is used for the topiary AND the Halloween tree:
We're starting from the bottom up with our decorating. To cover the foam in the base of the topiary, we made spooky grass bundles. The first step is to hot glue a wood skewer around a piece of steel wool. Why steel wool? Well, I looked around my garage and happened upon steel wool which looked like it would make a good center for the bundles. And, it totally works.
We used found objects to decorate the tree. It was a lot of fun to see what I had in storage that could be used. The only thing we did buy was the length of chain, but I feel like if I had searched long enough, I would have come up with that as well! Use a thin wire to securely fasten the decorations to the tree branches.
We really like the idea of being able to use the pumpkin topiary base to create a Halloween tree. After Halloween, the tree can be removed and the pumpkin put back in placed and used until Thanksgiving.
What decor would you put on your tree? We'd love to see your ideas.
