White Halloween Tree Ideas and Decorating Tips
Learn how to decorate a white Christmas tree for Halloween by looking at these stunning themes for inspiration.
Cast a bewitching spell with mercury glass bottles, bunches of herbs and spices, and mini cauldrons and wands as Halloween tree decorations. Pile old or vintage books beneath the tree to look like spell books. As a finishing touch, tie your white Halloween tree décor all together with a black witch’s hat tree topper.
Evoke Victorian elegance with a touch of gothic darkness by tying black velvet ribbons and lace scraps to the branches of your white tree. Hang black and white photos in mini gilt frames or cameos as ornaments and adorn your tree with large black or burgundy roses to complete the eerie ambience.
Invite guests over for a ghostly party set in the festive Roaring Twenties. Glittered feather picks, masquerade masks, and vintage-inspired ornaments in a darker color palette lend a festive but still creepy touch to your Halloween tree.
Spook friends and family with a white tree decorated with skeleton keys, miniature tombstone ornaments, spiders and spiderwebs, and a scary skeleton arm or two poking out of the branches. Black lanterns or hurricanes at the base of the tree add a ghostly glow.
Honor a classic Halloween character with black velvet ribbons and white masks on your tree. Recreate the ambiance of a creepy theater with black musical note cutouts and crystal ornaments reminiscent of the iconic chandelier in The Phantom of the Opera.
Dia de los Muertos
Embody the festive feel of the Mexican Day of the Dead with marigold flower picks in vibrant colors, sugar skull ornaments, and glittering LED fairy lights. Group flameless pillar candles at the base of the tree to complete the scene.
