Today marks the end of our Halloween celebration and all eight of our DIY queens have been crowned. Escorted by an army of DIY Halloween decorations and our merry band of unique artificial Christmas trees, each thrilled us with unique displays fit for royalty. See the queen-sized offerings of DIY Halloween decorations and fun ideas from our ensemble of DIY Queens below.

Cassie Stephens

Cassie’s love for classic monster movies inspired her Monster Mash Halloween Tree. Dracula, The Mummy, and Frankenstein all made a cameo on her Candy Corn Tree with silver and creepy handmade ornaments as the supporting cast.

Vanessa reached into her bag of tricks and treated us to a spell-binding display inspired by a Disney favorite. For Day 2 of our Halloween DIY Queens celebration, she decorated our Lively Lavender Tree with miniature witch hats and spell books, colorful ornaments, and clip art inspired by Salem’s Sanderson Sisters.

Jennifer Perkins

There’s no better way to end our royal retreat than with our very own Jennifer Perkins. Dressed in vintage-inspired ornaments, Jen’s duo of ombré trees stand on either side of her Halloween shelves like two Queen’s Guard in Black and Gold armor.

We hope our week-long DIY fest inspired you to get crafty on your own. Thank you to our 2017 Halloween Queens for opening up their homes and showing us how to create a fun and spooky centerpiece for one of our favorite holidays. Check back on the Treetopia blog for more exciting blog hops!
