My 1st Halloween Tree

So, yes...I am still alive! 1 blog post in over a week...E-gads!!!

Lot's going on here at the ole homestead..but all really good stuff! So.. here are a few pics from my first ever full size Halloween tree! I cannot tell you how happy I am looking at this. So corny but I just LOVE it!!

So, here is how this tree came to be...
I bought an outdoor lighted tree ($60.00 at Michaels) with purple and orange lights.
I attached it to a heavy, already painted black base with gobs of epoxy I found at Goodwill ($5.00). I then added glow in the dark spider webs ($2.99 at Target), blk & orange vintage festooning (thanx Janell), & black and orange tinsel garland (Bethany Lowe, already had in the house).

Not bad for a Full Size Hallo Tree for those of who know how much those suckers go for. Talk about scary! EEK~
