A spooky cute pink and black Halloween Christmas tree is the holiday decorations you never knew you needed, until now!
Halloween Christmas trees are becoming an increasingly popular holiday trend and this is definitely a trend I can happily join in and support.
It seems like everyone is pulling out their artificial Christmas trees sooner and sooner, so why not get a jump start on getting into the holiday spirit with a Spooky Cute Halloween Christmas Tree?
I am passionate about decorating my Christmas trees and over the years I have created a dozen or more Christmas trees that have been featured in major magazines, and displayed on countless websites. So, I decided to combine my love of decorating Christmas Trees and my obsession for all things Halloween to create this spooktacular Halloween tree!
What is a Halloween Christmas Tree?
Basically, it’s just an artificial Christmas tree with Halloween-themed ornaments. This could be anything from creepy to cute. Adorn your tree with Halloween items like cobwebs, spiders, pumpkins, witch hats or bats.

How to Decorate a Christmas Tree for Halloween
Have you ever wondered how to get the beautiful designer look for your own Christmas tree? It’s actually easier than you think, all you need are the right supplies and a few helpful tips. Here’s how to create your own show-stopping magical Halloween tree.
STEP 1: CHOOSE A COLOR SCHEME
One of the main differences between a Halloween themed tree and a Christmas themed tree is the color scheme. To create a spooky tree you’ll want to stick with traditional Halloween colors like black, orange, purple or green. My color scheme was inspired by this gorgeous pink velvet ribbon and black and white Halloween spider ornaments from Decorator’s Warehouse.
I love the color combination of pink, black and white for Halloween and knew it would create the perfect mix of spooky and cute for my tree.
STEP 2: ADD THE RIBBON
The ribbon is my favorite element of the tree. Ribbon adds texture, color, and the WOW factor you see in designer trees. It’s also the thing that intimidates most people, but it’s easier than you think to add ribbon-like a pro.
One of the top designers tricks is to cut the ribbon. Cutting it gives you so much more flexibility over where it goes on the tree.
I like to combine two to three different types of ribbon incorporating a variety of texture and patterns. For this slim tree I used 12-14″ strips of ribbon, looping it to create simple bows and then added dovetails, and tucked them into the boughs of the tree.
STEP 3: ADD LARGE ORNAMENTS
Designer trees always feature a variety of different sized ornaments. Create interest on the inside of the tree with large, oversized ornaments. These shatterproof balls are great as a filler and look great tucked back inside the tree.
This charming and playful oversized spider with googley eyes and black and white stripes adds a touch of magic and lighthearted spookiness to the tree.
STEP 4: ADD FLORAL SPRAYS
Floral spray, also known as picks, create texture and add a natural element to the tree. Clustering your florals is a great way to achieve that designer look. To create a cluster you will need a mix of 3-5 different floral sprays. Layer 3 different varieties together, separating them so the bottom one is pulled forward a little bit and the top two are angled out to the sides.
I selected a variety of floral sprays, including a silver glitter spray that mimiced the disco ball ornaments I used, a whimsical pink and black fuzzy pom pom spray and glittery black bats.
When placing your floral sprays on the tree work in a zig-zag pattern from top to bottom. A good rule of thumb is one per foot of the tree, so a mid-size 7.5’ tree would use 7 clusters. A 9’ tree would use 9 clusters.
STEP 5: ADD DECORATIVE BALL ORNAMENTS
Now is the time to add any of the decorative ball ornaments that you have. Incorporating a variety of sizes and textures that will help create visual interest in your tree. I didn’t want my tree to be too spooky so I stuck with simple solid colored ornaments that coordinated with my color scheme.
When hanging ornaments work in a triangle pattern and hang them in groups from top to bottom.
STEP 6: HANG SPECIALTY ORNAMENTS
Now it’s time to add your show-stopping specialty ornaments. Now is the time to let your spooky cute ornaments shine.
Reflective disco ball ornaments are definitely a show-stopper that create a magical effect on my Halloween tree. I am utterly obsessed with the black and white spider ornaments and love the whimsical effect they give this spooktacular tree.
Halloween is meant to be fun and outrageous, so why not do something different, and create a spooky, magical tree to your Halloween decor?
