Remember last February when I told you our kiddos talked me into keeping up our Christmas tree ALL YEAR LONG 😳. I said I thought it was a “cute” idea 🙄. Well, I wouldn’t exactly call it cute 9 months later. The words that come to mind now are more cranky like: RIDICULOUS, DUSTY, BEEN THERE DONE THAT, NO MORE, and even, PLEASE TAKE IT DOWN!!! Yes, Red is cranky, and ready for this tree to go bye bye. Somehow though, I did manage to pump out this last spooky version, and it is rather funny. Welcome to the very last “Annual Tree” in our home, and it’s last theme of the year…our “Fall Halloween Tree”.
You may have noticed my show stopper tree topper “Slick” up there holding up the joint, I mean tree. He has been flexing his green sparkly biceps non stop for days making sure those rascal kitties don’t bring the tree down. Lookin’ good, Slick.
You probably also noticed my other “so-called” BFF with the snazzy boots taking a nap under the tree. She is in big trouble when she wakes up.
If you want to make one of these goul-ish looking trees, I found the ghosts at the dollar store last year. The arms are adjustable which make them really simple to use outdoors or indoors. I also found the faux black and grey spider webs at the dollar store, too. The large adjustable spiders are very old, and I can’t remember where I got those 🤔.
If you missed the “Spooky Corner” behind the tree from last week, take the tour here: “Thrifty Spooky Halloween Corner“.
Before I fly away on my broomstick, I better tell you that the witches legs are pool noodles, my kid’s tights, and my old boots that I haven’t worn in years. I thought the pointy toes were very witchy. I covered everything up with a black tablecloth for the tree skirt.
Happy Halloween my GOUL-friends (and GUYZ too!) 🎃 ! Our oldest turns 20 this weekend…I just can’t believe it. Time sure flies when you’re in love with your family. Stay tuned for less cranky posts this holiday season. I am going ALL OUT this Christmas, and I promise lots of unique, affordable, ideas & a gorgeous wreath giveaway.
