I have a candy corn tree and I love it almost as much as my children. OK, maybe not that much but when I look at this beauty I swell up with pride like the day I gave birth. Sure you can go get one of those rinky-dink 1′ tall spooky trees and call yourself a Halloween fan, but we know hardcore Halloween lovers go big or go home.
This week I am part of a week long blog-hop for Treetopia. Stop by their Face Book page for a chance to win your own set of black table-top trees, black wreath and black garland. As someone has all of those things currently on display in their house, trust me you want them. I’m not alone on this blog hop – be sure to check out amazing trees by Cathie Filian, Heidi Kenny, Vanessa Brady and Heather Thoming.
You might have spied my precious Treetopia Candy Corn Tree on the DIY Network blog recently. I used it as the centerpiece for a round of musical chairs. Looking for more Halloween Games and Activities for a Children’s Halloween Party? I have a whole post about it. Oh and say you don’t have a candy corn tree, no worries check out my post on 9 Ways to Decorate a Halloween Tree.
So let’s get back to talking about my Candy Corn Tree as it stands now. I did a mix of yarn garlands, Meri Meri paper goods, black ornaments, vintage Halloween masks, striped half pumpkins and my favorite part – hanging bats!
Now you can buy half pumpkins. Genius right? I snagged some white ones and using black washi tape striped them. Next I poked two small holes at the top and ran pipe cleaners through the holes for hangers. I just so happened to only have animal print pipe cleaners on hand. Whatever.
Usually for a tree topper I stick things in the actual tree, this time I hung things from the ceiling. This Halloween is the year of the bat around my house. They are hung everywhere.

FACT: I am a brand ambassador for Treetopia, they gave me this tree for free, but all opinions are my own. You know I loved Christmas trees and Halloween long before I got paid to.
