how to decorate your black tree

Featuring our Midnight Black Christmas Tree (L) and Black Tiger Christmas Tree (R)

If you’re looking for a holiday centerpiece with unique charm and personality, black Christmas trees are a fantastic choice. Stylish and modern, black trees have their own distinct brand of versatility, and can greatly enhance the atmosphere of your home. Here are 4 easy black Christmas tree decorating ideas you’ll want to try this Christmas:

Spooky Wreaths for the Spookiest Day

“Wanting to create a spooky and sophisticated Halloween Bar Cart this year, I decided to decorate my black wreath as if it were a funeral wreath. I adorned the front with a banner and added in some blood red peonies to enhance the “creepy factor”. Adding the phrase “Drink Up Witches” adds a little humor to the vignette and invites my guests to come over and pick their poison.”

The mantel in most homes is a focal point. In my house, you can see the fireplace from the front door. I like to make sure my mantel is done up right for the holidays, including Halloween, and this is where my Tuxedo Black Wreath and Garland come in.

Halloween is right around the corner, and preparing for parties, buying treats, and conjuring up costumes have us giddy with anticipation. However, creating our own unique Halloween décor gets us excited the most. In this edition of Treetopia Loves, we present 6 easy Halloween decorations to D-I-Y for.

If you thought my Candy Corn Tree was good, take a peek at my Treetopia Tuxedo Black Christmas Tree decorated for Halloween. I used a combination of new and vintage, store bought and handmade, plus kitsch and serious Halloween. Is there such a thing as serious Halloween?

You still have until next week to enter and win your own set of Tuxedo Black Tabletop Trees and matching Tuxedo Black Wreath and Garland. In the meantime, feast your eyes on Heather’s Whisper White Cashmere Tree. I adore the black and white theme—and let’s talk about that pumpkin jack-a-lope.

I can’t wait to see how she decorates the tree for Christmas. Stop by Whipperberry and see more of this gorgeous tree, and if you missed the rest of the bloghop, stop by and say hello to Cathie Filian, Heidi Kenny, Vanessa Brady, and my own blog If you didn’t want a Halloween tree before, you will now.

Day of the Dead tree decorating.

Today on the Treetopia Halloween Mystery Bloghop and Giveaway we are headed to El Paso, TX for a sneak peak into the traditions of Vanessa Brady of Tried and True. Vanessa gave her Treetopia Stiletto Black Christmas Tree an amazing Day of the Dead makeover. Dia de los Muertos is more than colorful skull decorations and face paint, it is a beautiful tradition honoring loved ones who have passed on. Vanessa made the gorgeous frames for her photos, whipped out some amazingly cute tassel ornaments, and even handmade tissue paper flowers for the tree. She topped it off with pompom trim, because everything is better with pompoms.

How to decorate a candy corn tree.

I first fell in love with Treetopia because of their Candy Corn Tree. Sure, I’m their brand ambassador and you would think I have to say nice stuff about them, but really I adore this tree—maybe even too much. Last year, I used the tree in my Halloween Party Photo Booth, and the tree makes an appearance on the DIY Network post 9 Ways to Decorate a Halloween Tree. Also, if you are looking for Halloween Games and Activities for a Kid’s Halloween Party, the tree makes a great centerpiece for a round of musical chairs. So many options. Who knew a Candy Corn Tree was so versatile?

The Treetopia Mystery Bloghop and Giveaway is in full swing and so far all the trees (Cathie Filian and Heidi Kenny) have been amazing, and there are two more stops to go (Tried and True and Whipperberry)! Be sure to stop by my blog for all the details on how I decorated my candy corn cutie!

When one of my Halloween decorating idols Heidi Kenny of My Paper Crane came on board to the Treetopia Bloghop, I had a fan girl moment. Like myself, she loves vintage Halloween and her collection rivals my own. I just knew she would work wonders on a Pitch Black Pine Tree from Treetopia and I was right. Who is dying to go paint faces on foam gourds now? I know I’m raising my hand!
