White for Halloween?

Hey everyone! I hope you are getting into fall and the fun side of Halloween!
After Christmas last year I picked up a cheap white 3 foot Christmas tree at Rite Aid, about $2. It had those flimsy branches that you really can't hang anything on, but the white color caught my eye. So I brought it home and started twisting the branches together, 3 or 4 at a time.
I ended up with something similar to a feather tree, but I could add lights and ornaments.
Years ago Target had a set of glass Trick or Treater ornaments,
I was thrilled to be able to start collecting ornaments for another holiday:@)
I've always used my 28" hand crafted feather tree, but this year I thought I'd do something different.
The photos aren't great-have to use the flash, but do get clearer if you click on them.
  

I made this cute tree skirt for my feather tree.
I love the word embellishment and beading! The letter beads spell out: Happy Halloween, the witch is in, trick or treat, fun, spooky, cider, candy and gobblin. This pic was on my work table in the studio.
I set my little feather tree up for all of the holidays except Christmas, and really enjoy it!
I'm joining the following parties:
Tabletop Tuesday
Spooky Monday
Three or More Tuesday
Toot Your Horn Tuesday

  7. I think a white tree is a wonderful solution to a black and orange holiday, makes everything pop. for several years I have had this thing for white pumpkins too but now blue is the up and coming color, if only they didn't really look gray.
    I look forward to the pumpkin party. Thanks for letting me know.

  8. Oh I love your little tree! I have used the little black lite twinkle size lights too and was thinking how fun they would be on your white tree. I've got to get busy and do some decorating. Thanks for spurring me on!

  9. Hi! That is such a great idea! My kids, especially would have so much fun with that, although they would probably never actually leave the ornaments on the tree! :-)

  12. I seriously considered getting out my X-mas tree and start decorating it for Fall and Halloween. Then I opted not to, as my house would feel cluttered. Those are the cutest little ornaments on your fun little tree.

  13. I love this idea! I might see if I can find a small tree and do the same thing. You are so clever!

    Best wishes,
    Natasha.

  20. This is a great idea - to wrap the branches together! I put up a FALL tree, too - it's just fun to decorate all year long, I think. Your blog is really fun - I'm off to look around.

  25. That is too cute! I thought about doing a link party around Christmas time bout people's unique tree's and this would certainly qualify. My aunt use to put up a "Booze Tree" that was a mini tree covered in the single serve alcohol bottles and mini wine glasses.

  27. Sending a sweet hello from Frog Hollow Farm. I just love what you have done with that little white tree - it's just adorable! You know, I'm not necessarily a fan of anything beyond a jack-o-lantern for Halloween, but I think that your tree is just precious! I'm constantly amazed at the wonderful ideas I get to read about on blogs like yours. Thanks, and have a great day! Ciao, bella!
