Pencil trees and table top trees are perfect for small spaces like a child’s room. When my tween asked for her own tree, I was more than happy to help. She picked the sweets theme and it just happened that I decorated an ice cream themed tree a time or two, so I had a bit of experience.

Remember when I posted about the Teal Pumpkin Project? Well in case you did not get enough Tuxedo Black Tree action, we are back for more! Here I am just leisurely relaxing with my cat (too bad my black one is not in the picture instead), and one of my many Halloween trees. This week, I’ve given you a tour of all my Halloween trees: candy corn, hot pink, table top trees and lavender.
The latest addition to my Halloween tree forest is this guy: Mr. Lively Lavender. At first, I was skeptical about how a lavender tree would work for Halloween, but I gotta tell ya—this is my favorite tree this year! I know I never thought I could love a tree more than the candy corn tree, but this year, it’s happened.
Here she is, the tree that brought me to Treetopia! If I had a tree spirit animal it would be this Candy Corn Tree. It was love at first Halloween tree sight, when I spotted this tree. I’ve used this tree as a Halloween party photo prop, for a round of Musical Chairs, decorated it with bats, and last year, gave it the Teal Pumpkin Project treatment. This year, I went with witches!
The idea for this Halloween ornament came to me because of a common mom dilemma—my kids kept leaving the lids off of their Play-Doh, which meant lot’s of empty containers to throw out. Then I thought: “Hey, those would make adorable little Halloween ornament dioramas”! So I dug them all out of the trash and busted out the glitter! So easy, fun and customizable!
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.
