HI GUYS! I wanted to share with you this Spooky dead tree I made last year~ I wanted aspooky dead tree, but didn’t want to buy one. So I ventured out to a huge tree in our backyard, and cut a large branch off. It had tiny small flimsy branches and leaf’s all over it, that I just cut and pulled off. I spray painted it with black spray paint (Glossy) thoroughly and let it dry. I had the jar already and I just filled it with candy corn and stuck the tree in.
Here it is bare… and needing some more spookaliciousness!
I found a bag of small skull heads and polka dot ribbon 50% off, at Michaels and WAM‘ that is when I new they were going on my Terrifying Dead tree. Cut ribbon to size and matched the ribbon up to the other pieces for even lengths.
I folded the ribbon in half and held it that way, and then added a dab of hot glue to the top of the skull head. I then turned the ribbon over in the designated folded spot, and held it to the hot glue with one side of my hand held scissors for a few seconds.
SO it will LOOK LIKE THIS!
I chose spots I wanted to tie them off and hang them to. Some needed a little dab of hot glue to stay firmly in place.
i DIDN’T need all of the skull heads, so some of them fell from the DEAD tree, like apples falling from theirs 😉 HE, HE!
I tied a CUTE bow around the jar vase
