After making some toilet paper bats and ghosts, and getting them all hung out, they seemed so out of place for DAYS. I just wasn’t sure I loved them. Then I was just passing by and thought, they need a forest to be in. I need to make a Halloween tree. Say what? Lol.
I’m all about easy crafts around here, that can be fun and kid friendly. All I had in the house was some tape, scissors, and black card stock. So I went for it.
Black card stock/construction paper
All you’ll need to do it start cutting. I started with the base of the Halloween tree, and made that almost as wide as the paper (the 8 inch part of the paper). Then I lined it up a bit with my next anti fungal cut, and eventually made it smaller as I went.
For the branches, I turned my paper, so I was cutting them 8 inches long. I used 2-3 of those stripes to make one of the longer branches. Then for the short little ones, I just used 4 inch pieces (so I cut 8 inch pieces in half). I just squiggled the cuts I made, and made a few sharp edges or whatever. Just be creative. I gathered them and just started taping. I think I may try to laminate it somehow, so that I can keep it for another year. We all love it. At night this Halloween Tree looks awesome and creepy with only a nightlight in the entry way.
