Small black Halloween tree

Small black Halloween tree with DIY doll parts by Jennifer Perkins

These my friends, may be the creepiest Halloween ornaments I have ever made—and I’ve made A LOT of Halloween ornaments in my day. When I had the crafty idea to join together my box of vintage doll parts and some old children’s pots and pans, I knew I was onto something. Remember, if you can’t find what you are looking for at the store, you can always make it yourself. Needless to say, they don’t have doll part stew ornaments at the store.

Decorate a black Christmas tree this Halloween to show support for the #tealpumpkinproject with Jennifer Perkins for Treetopia

Halloween can be tough for the 4 million children affected by food allergies. Trick-or-treating means giving up majority of your candy because it may be full of peanuts, milk, or soy. The Teal Pumpkin Project was started in 2014 by F.A.R.E.. Teal pumpkins on doorsteps (or in black Halloween trees) let kids and parents know that this house is giving out something other than candy. As a parent of a child with a peanut allergy, this cause and these teal pumpkins are near and dear to my heart. This Halloween, consider stocking up on temporary tattoos, pencils, stickers, and a teal pumpkin. If you want to take it a step further like I did, decorate an entire Halloween tree to show your support.

Christmas in July is an unofficial holiday. The term originated from the fact that in the southern hemisphere, Christmas is actually celebrated in the summer. Residents from that area, began to throw Christmas celebrations in July, as that is the peak month of their winter season.

For most Americans, Christmas in July is an opportunity to escape the heat and have a little fun.
