The Spookiest Halloween Trees + Trimmings for the Season
Spook-up your spot with our top Halloween tree and ornament finds.
We’re pulling out our glittery baubles, shimmery garland and starry toppers to indulge in holiday cheer earlier and earlier each year. Even so, trimming our holiday trees in September feels, admittedly, like a bit of a stretch. That said, if November seems far from reach and you’re counting down the days until it’s socially acceptable to add cozy, holiday ambiance to your home, then you’re in luck. Enter: Halloween trees.
Halloween trees feature the same key players you know and love from traditional Christmas firs but replace holiday charm and nostalgia with creepy crawlers, hauntings and horror. The latest All Hallows' Eve fad is taking off in spook-tackular speed, and we’re jumping headfirst into the frightening fun. Check out our finds for fearsome trees, scary-cute skirts and eerie ornaments to haunt your home with Halloween flair.
Glitzy Halloween Trees
Save your classic fir for the winter holidays, and set the tone for spook and whimsy by starting with an unexpected tree base. Use the size of your space and the color palette of your current Halloween decorations as your guide to selecting the perfect tree for your home. The candy corn bottlebrush tree is our top pick for tiny spaces and tabletop decor, while a pair of the potted branch trees (below) add an eerie touch to outdoor entryways. The black and metallic ombre tree are chic, neutral options for those who hope to transition their Halloween tree into the winter holidays. Swap the spider webs and bloody baubles for a starry topper and some beaded garland. Voila!
Shriek-Worthy Halloween Skirts
As it turns out, a little black skirt is a wardrobe staple for you and your Halloween tree. Creep-up the base of your tree with a high-contrast, web-clad or witchy graphic skirt. Our top choice? This black-and-white houndstooth skirt. The timeless print is an autumn classic but can just as easily translate from fall to winter to complement both neutral and bold holiday tree decor.
Eerie Halloween Ornaments
Deck your tree in a mix of dreadful and darling details that scream Halloween. Snag a set of painted wood-slice ornaments to add a whimsical touch to your branches, and fill in any empty spaces with a cast of classic, spooky characters. Give the display a ghoulish finishing touch with a custom-made, ghost and pom-pom garland in your choice of color.
