Happy Halloween Craft Activity Part 1 - DIY Halloween Tree

1 min read

Spooky season is finally upon us. As the leaves begin to fall, it marks a time of fun and fantasy, hocus pocus, woodland walks, collecting conkers and getting cosy indoors.

It’s no secret that we’re huge fans of a good old craft activity over here, so what better way to kick off this magical time of the year than with a fun, spooky themed activity that little ones will love to get stuck into. This amazing tree decoration is sure to be a hit and will take you all the way through to those much anticipated Halloween celebrations.

Let’s begin.

How to make a Halloween Tree - Part 1

You will need:

  • Twigs/small tree branches
  • Black poster paint 
  • Silver glitter glue
  • Thick paint brushes
  • A tall, heavy based vase or pot 

Ready, steady, craft.

  1. Get wrapped up and go on a little woodland walk with the kiddies to collect some twigs or small tree branches. You will need to collect a good handful of a similar size and length - ensuring there are plenty of branches for hanging decorations (more on that in a little while).
  2. Arrange your twigs onto a surface with a protective cover over it. Take the black poster paint and paint the twigs until they are totally covered. Leave them to dry for at least 5 hours.
  3. Next, take the silver glitter glue and dab it over the surface of the twigs to create a sparkly effect. Leave to dry. 
  4. Finally, arrange your twigs into a vase or container. You may need to add some weight to the bottom by adding a few rocks or pebbles, so that it doesn’t topple over. Voila, your Halloween Tree is complete.
  5. Time to add some spooky DIY decorations, coming up in part 2!
