Halloween Trees

Today I would like to talk about Halloween Trees and Thank Wendy the Very Good Witch for  this wonderful box of goodies I won on her blog The Halloween Tree ~ Wendy only blogs this time of year in celebration of  Autumn ~ I encourage you to visit Wendy's blog to see her fabulous home decorated to the nines for Halloween ~
When I won her drawing for the book The Halloween Tree I was working on a commission of bottles for a Halloween Tree ~ As I made the bottles for her tree I started thinking about my own tree sitting naked and dusty ~ My customer wanted me to make ornaments for another small tree in her Halloween Party box so I started on those all the while  thinking this all had a connection ~ I had to start my own Halloween Tree ~
A Big Thank You to Wendy for the Wonderful box of goodies ~ Now lets look at some Halloween trees ~
This black feather tree belongs to Cathy Foley ~ I have lost my notes but think it is 18 inches tall, maybe Cathy will pop in and correct me if I am wrong ~ I love how the bottles and bulbs shine, Cathy did an excellent job decorating this tree ~
This is Cathy's one inch scale tree she was going to put in her room box but decided to put it under a dome instead to display at her husband's office for Halloween ~ Ornaments made by me, Cathy made the presents and tree skirt and Grim Kim created the spooky Jack in the boxes and voodoo doll ~ Cathy put it altogether on this base, I think she did an Awesome job ~
This is my poor tree so far, not too impressive ~ I have more skulls glittered and drying  and a few more ornaments in the works ~ I will post another picture on Monday's post of my finished tree ~

Thank you for dropping by and don't forget to come back on Monday for my Halloween Vulture's Roost post and to see the winner of the Pirate Scrolls, who knows it could be you ~
