Halloween "TREE-ts"!!! with Craft Goodies

Happy October all!
Hope it's shaping up to be a good one.
It's Wendy here today and  I'm excited to be here sharing my take on
Candace and Nicole's countdown tree.

Mine came together pretty quick and in the words of my youngest it's a "NICE TREE!" I think all my girls will have fun with it-assuming I can keep the ghostly treats well stocked!

I started by free-handing a haunted-looking tree onto some poster board and then transfered that onto my 1/2 inch MDF. I used my jig saw to cut it out.

Then glued all the pieces together to form a free standing 3-Dish Spook-tacular tree.

Next I added the holes to hold my little ghosties. I just drilled through a few of the branches with a drill bit slightly bigger than the sucker sticks.

Last came the black spray paint, a ton of black glitter, and a sealer to hold it in place.
My little one helped me add the treats and we were done!

It will be a fun addition to our house this Halloween. Thanks ladies for the inspiration and as always for the good times! Can't wait to see what the rest of the week brings...
