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.

Don’t forget to check out Cathie Filian’s amazing take on Dia de los Muertos with her orange tree, Heidi Kenny of My Paper Crane had a painted-pumpkin-palooza for her Pitch-Black Pine Tree and over on my blog I shared my Candy Corn Tree. Tomorrow is the last stop (but not the last day to enter the contest) when we visit Heather Thoming of Whipperberry.

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 www.jenniferperkins.com for all the details on how I decorated my candy corn cutie!

Painted pumpkin ornaments for a Halloween tree.

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!

After you bask in the glory of Heidi’s Halloween tree, pop over to the Treetopia Facebook Page for a chance to win your own set of Black Tabletop Trees PLUS matching black wreath and garland. Don’t forget to check back all week for more amazing trees and chances to win!

How to decorate a music themed tree.

I knew I was hanging on to all those vinyl records for a reason. All those trips to the record store are still paying off. Nowadays, I seem to craft using records more than I play them, but at least they are getting used. And used pretty well in the case of this rocking version of the Treetopia Pretty in Pink Potted Christmas Tree.

The Christmas tree is the centerpiece of your holiday home, but deciding how to decorate it can be a challenge. Be inspired by these design ideas and give your Christmas tree the stylish and festive look you’ve always wanted.

1. Traditional

When it comes to Christmas tree decorating, a classic red-and-green motif never goes out of style.  Glass ball ornaments in solid colors, iconic holiday décor staples like Santa, candy canes, snowflakes, and stockings are popular decorating choices. Sprigs of winterberries, clip-on poinsettias, and red-and-gold ribbons add texture to your tree, making it look warmer and more inviting.
