Make a halloween tree out of the branches, ofcourse.  Wink

During hurricane Ike we got 60+ mph winds which caused my favorite tree in the front yard to fall down  Angry  I was looking here on craftster and saw some other people making mini halloween trees which inspired me. I LOVEEEE halloween so I said, "I'm going to make a huge halloween tree, christmas tree size" So I grabbed some branches, spray painted them black, painted a clay pot, then assembled the tree. What does every tree need though? Ornaments.  Smiley So I made a few of those too, and added some cobwebs. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, I might decorate it more, we'll see.

Thanks for reading and taking a look! Sorry for the massive amount of pictures! Smiley


here's a couple with it decorated







here's without it decorated



here's a close up of the base

these are close-ups of the ornaments









The tree pictures aren't that great but it was the best I could get!  Smiley

That's really great! I love the ornaments too. Did you use the standard ready-to-finish Christmas ones? What type of paint is that? Way to turn a negative into a fun decoration! Grin

Yep! I got them at Michael's. It's just regular apple barrel acrylic paint with a spray gloss over top  Smiley
