Dress up your Halloween decor with a unique tree idea. I didn’t set out to make it like this, but I kept adding more and more to it, and there you go. Turned out to be a DIY Halloween Sparkly Tree.
My DIY Sparkly Halloween Tree
A long-time online friend messaged me a note showing me a cute fall tree made from a tomato cage because it reminded her of me, and she thought I’d like it and could make it. I told her I had a tomato cage and that I could make that, so I set out to make it. It was cute and simple.
I went outside to my garden and pulled out the tomato cage right from the garden. This was our first year to garden, so we weren’t sure what we were doing, and therefore, did not get too many tomatoes.
When I got to Hobby Lobby to buy what supplies I didn’t have, I saw the price of the garland, and at $20 each, I would have had to buy at least 4 of them. So I thought of using something different and picked up everything that was on sale. All fall items were on sale at that time except, of course, those other garlands.
So here’s my “fall” tree. Boring, uh?
I didn’t like it, so I decided to make it into a Halloween tree.
How to Make a Sparkly Halloween Tree
Supplies I used for this Halloween tree:
- Tomato Cage
- 8 or 9 Black or brown garland (I used brown b/c it was on sale)
- Fall burnt orange garland
- Christmas lights or any kind of lights will do
- Small pumpkins I found at Walmart
- Halloween Confetti Papercraft
- Witches hat
- Black and orange tulle
- A few Halloween decor sticks with a skeleton, pumpkins, spiders, etc.
- Use anything you can find that you like for decorations – be original!!
- Clean off tomato cage if you were like me and grabbed it right out of the garden – or purchase one at Home Depot.
- Turn tomato cage upside down with the spikes up. The more significant part is downward. Turn spikes down in the cage – you will not use them.
- Place lights inside of the cage and around the wire. Make sure the cord is long enough to plug into an outlet. You may need an extension cord. I did. Get 20ft or longer lights. NOTE: I put garland on first, but I think it would be easier to put lights on before the garland. You decide.
- Start wrapping the garland around the tree. More the merrier here.
- If using tulle tie around the tree
- Place pumpkins all around
- Stick in Halloween sticks
- Add more if you would like
- Place witches hat on top….and enjoy!!
My Halloween tree cost me way more than I set out to spend. Oh well, I’ll have it next year too and my 5-year-old digs it!!
