Halloween Tree From Jewelry Organizer

4 Materials
$3
3 Hours
Easy

After finishing my Halloween Shadow Box, I had some clay ornaments left over which seemed perfect for a Halloween Tree. As luck would have it, I also had a jewelry organizer in the shape of a tree.

The jewelry tree was black metal with branches and leaves. Perfect!
Dollar Tree Skull Lights

After checking out the variety of battery operated Dollar Tree Halloween lights, I opted for the skulls as they went with my black & white theme.

Using Crayola Air Dry Clay, I had made ornaments for the Halloween Shadow Box previously posted.

The jewelry tree leaves had holes for hanging earrings. By threading the ornaments through those holes with thin fishing line, I could adjust the length to fill out the tree.

My Dollar Tree Halloween stash contained skeletons & bats which seemed like a perfect combination for a top piece.
Securing the Ornaments

By threading the ornaments through the holes on the leaf and inserting a silver bead before knotting, each ornament was hung at different lengths.

Decided that the lower branches needed a snake, so a thin twisted clay roll came to the rescue.

The batty skeleton was tied to the curved top branch with the fishing line.

With little cost & effort, I have another whimsical Halloween table decoration.
Voila!
Voila!
I added some miniature clay pumpkins and a potion bottle to complete the decor. And by hanging ornaments at different lengths with fishing line, the ornaments swing when you blow on them.
