We strongly believe it’s never too early to decorate for Christmas, but we know some people need to get through Halloween before hauling ornament boxes and artificial trees up from the basement. If decorating your Christmas tree early has you saying “bah humbug,” the latest holiday decor trend might be right up your alley: Halloween trees are in, and people are already putting them up.
A Halloween tree is exactly what you’d expect: A faux Christmas tree decorated in orange and black rather than red and green. Instead of beads and ornaments, these trees are decorated with all kinds of ghosts, goblins, and ghouls. And yes, people are really making them! There are already more than 20,700 posts on Instagram with the hashtag #halloweentree, and the images are incredible. Based on the recent influx of hashtagged posts, people have already started decorating their Halloween trees this year, putting them up as early as June. We’ve seen a steady increase in the number of tree displays since early summer, so we only expect to see more of them as we get closer to the spooky season.
With faux white pumpkins, skeleton ornaments, and a large pumpkin tree topper, this Halloween tree combines the best elements of both spooky and modern decor. It’s also proof that arm-knit tree skirts aren’t just for Christmas trees!
