    Seriously, how am I supposed to choose for ALL of them? Every single tree is just so creative! I have the white tree set that comes with 3 so I can see my copying #2 A Host of Ghosts but on a smaller scale. The Dreamy haunted houses are adorable too!

    I love the little haunted houses! They look store bought.

    I’ve been putting up a small 4 ft black Halloween tree for about 8 years now, but this year I really want to put up my Winter White Christmas Tree as well. These are some great DIY ideas for easy decorations I can make for it.

  31. April Williams Reply

    Absolutely amazing ideas! I especially love the Host of Ghost. I think it could make an easy transformation to Thanksgiving by removing ghosts and Halloween colors then simply adding fall colors and/or leaves to go with the pumpkins.
