Halloween Tree & Treetopia Giveaway
Ever since I was a kid I could always remember being absolutely enchanted by Halloween, there is such a fascinating magic about it's uniqueness and the traditions we’ve grown to love. I truly love this time of year and kind of wish it would last forever!
I’ve partnered with Treetopia.com to create this mysterious black Halloween tree which really brings that feeling of the spooky season into the room, the orange lights, the skeletons, pumpkins and paper houses all compliment this fantastic Halloween tree. In this post I’m going to share with you a few things, one, my cute little Halloween paper houses which you can find in the shop here at The Art Dream! And two, this awesome giveaway presented by Treetopia!
Ok, so for the giveaway, just visit me on Instagram for all of the rules and to enter, the prize is a $100.00 gift card for Treetopia! Good luck and Happy Halloween!
I just love these little paper haunted houses for Halloween, I think they hold such importance for the season because without our loving neighborhoods where would the kids go trick or treating? These houses are a symbolic reference to the neighborhood we love all haunted and ready for Halloween! Houses play such a pivotal role in our communities, they’re our homes and where all of the memories of Halloween are made. I’ve created many of these houses over the years and this time they’ve ended up on my Treetopia tree as ornaments. If you like these paper haunted houses then you can find them in the shop here at The Art Dream!
I’ll show you how I’ve added the bases and bottle brush trees as well as how to construct the houses themselves!
Take a look at my video tutorial for constructing these houses, it seems complicated but it’s really fun to do and so rewarding when they’re all finished!
If you’d like to turn them into ornaments for your Halloween tree then check out my photo tutorial below.
Step 1. Cut out equal numbers of both cardboard and black cardstock paper circles at about 3 1/2 inches.
Step 2. Paint your bottle brush trees like candy corns with craft paint, let them dry while you work on the rest of the project.
Step 3. Spread tacky glue evenly on the cardboard circles and glue on a black circle.
Step 4. Spread glue on top of the black circle and sprinkle on glitter, allow the circles to dry well. You can even sandwich them in a book to be sure they dry nice and flat.
Step 5. Lastly, hot glue your houses to the base along with your bottle brush trees. Glue on string or ribbon for hooks. Add whatever other details you’d like!
