I've finally participated in enough Halloween ornament swaps: this year I have a Halloween tree!
When I purchased the silver tinsel tree on clearance after Christmas last year, I thought it would be perfect for ~this~ Christmas, but when I encountered it as I was pulling Halloween decor out of storage, I realized it would provide the perfect backdrop for many of the darker ornaments I've received.
A tabletop tree also helps immensely with Buck the Mouse Killer, Houseplant Digger and all around Messer-Upper roaming these premises:
Yes, that's Cool Whip on his nose.
But I digress.
Skulls, ghosts, jack-o-lanterns, skeletons, spiders, witch hats, haunted houses and bats all fit on the tree:
Even Edgar Allan Poe has a place of honor reserved for him among the branches:
Halloween is one of my favorite times of the year, thanks to these wonderful ornaments and the crafty friends who created them!
My ornaments have been made, bagged, tagged and mailed to Sarah over at Makin Projiks for this year's swap. I can't wait to see what everyone else has made that will be added to the tree!
