It is that time of year again, time for pumpkins, time for mums, time for fall and here it comes. Halloween is just right around the corner, and it is time, if you have not already, to get into Halloween Fanatic mode! As you know I stay in it year round, but now is the time to pull out your favorite decorations for fall. Mine will include my Halloween tree, it is filled with handmade artists ornaments again, including some of my favorite STJ artist works! When it comes to decorating your Halloween tree, it can be as complex or as simple as you like.
During this time of year you can pick up black trees at many retail outlets. You can also pick up some wonderful handmade feather trees as well. If you really want to go simple go out into the woods and find yourself some really sturdy branches, place them in a spooky urn, with pea gravel for support, and hang your favorite Halloween treasures on them. Be sure to check out Spooky Time Jingles the 13th of each month for hauntingly good Halloween tips, ornaments for your Halloween tree, and fine Halloween art!
