A Very Pink Halloween

Halloween is possibly my very favorite holiday, and I love celebrating it with all thing spooky cute. It ushers in fall, which is my favorite season as the summer cools and apples ripen and leaves crisp. So when Treetopia and the Queen of Halloween herself, Jennifer Perkins, asked me to participate in their Scary Room Series, I jumped at the chance!

They sent me this dreamy pastel pink tree and a white iridescent garland to put my own creative spin on for Halloween. I love the idea of a tree you leave up and change out the decorations for Halloween and Christmas.

I went with a very vintage-inspired black, white, orange, and pink Halloween. Kept it spooky with a black raven tree topper (just watching you, always), and black bats along the walls, natch. I found vintage Halloween illustrations online and swapped them into my existing art frames. I also cut out little masks for my Sabrina poster so that the corner would be all themed out.

In addition to Halloween Shiny Brites (!!!) that I found at HomeGoods and glittery spiders from Michaels, I took a stab at making my own Halloween ornaments! It was my first time experimenting with air dry clay so they definitely turned out more homemade than couture, but I kind of love the handmade feel for achieving that kind of creepy, off-kilter vintage Halloween charm. I really enjoyed using all my creative skills to take on this Scary Room challenge!

Now here’s the exciting part…you have TWO chances to win a colorful tree of your own!
