Spray paint an artificial
Christmas tree black or a creepy camo-type green. Use paper
garlands of bats or spiders from the store or make one of
your own. Hang plastic spiders and other trinkets on the
tree. You can buy bags of these things at party stores. Hot
melt glue them on if you have room to store the tree fully
assembled. Glue each piece onto a bobby pin or other
inexpensive clip to attach if you need to take the tree
apart for storage.
Go nuts at the candy store for all
wrapped Halloween candies or just orange and yellow ones.
Thread heavy cord through an upholstery needle and pierce the
ends of the candy wrappers.
Bit O' Honey minis
Orange and Black
What candy you buy depends on
whether you are going to eventually eat it or if it's just for
you get when you cross a werewolf and a vampire?
A fur coat that fangs around your neck.
Regular glass Christmas ornaments
from the craft store, covered with orange clay. Use a pin or
needle tool to draw a Jack O' Lantern face, then cut it out
with a craft knife.
Who did Frankenstein take to the prom?...His ghoul friend.
Old rhinestone jewelry make great
sparkly ornaments. Glue on a small plastic clothespin to
Mardi Gras beads, cut into 10"
lengths and gathered into bundles of 4 or 5 pieces, look funky
hanging off branch tips.
Or just cut one end, glue many
strands together and drape as garland.
Regular Christmas lights work well on the
tree. You can swipe all of the orange, clear and/or yellow
lights from other strings, buy strings with only orange
lights, or your favorite combo. Some places sell "Halloween"
strings for more money, so save your $$$ and stock up at the
Cut up trash
bags into ragged "icicles" and hang on
What do you
do with a green monster? Wait til he's ripe.
Candles being the fire
hazard that they are, I like to use glow sticks on my tree
instead. Get the Christmas type clip on candle holders and
put in a glow stick instead.
mummies have trouble keeping friends?
They're so wrapped up in themselves.
