Make any room in your house trick-or-treat worthy with these glowing Halloween trees
Fans of Halloween have been counting down the days in anticipation of getting out their fall decor boxes and transforming their homes for the spooky season. Scary inflatables, outdoor lighting, and gigantic skeletons can transform even the most ordinary house into a haunted mansion, but what about indoors? Halloween LED trees ranging from tabletop centerpieces to whole-room decorations will let you enjoy seasonal spookiness no matter how frightful the weather is.
Shopping for Halloween LED trees
If you’re setting up a Halloween scene in your living room, you’ll want a very different tree size than if you’re decorating a tabletop, so shop carefully to make sure you’re purchasing the right size. Most Halloween trees vary from about 18 inches to 7 feet tall. Many Halloween trees feature branches that can also be repositioned and spread out into your preferred configuration. Some are also sold in sets of two, offering great value and more opportunities to decorate.
Many Halloween LED trees have more decorations on their branches than just lightbulbs. Spiders, ghosts, jack-o’-lanterns and bats can all be found on Halloween trees, either as pendant ornaments or specially molded lightbulb coverings. Some trees even have small Halloween figures or tombstones clustered at their base. These decorated trees can make your seasonal setup come together effortlessly, but look for simpler trees if you’re planning to add some special touches to your spooky scene.
Types of Halloween trees
Halloween trees range from spooky, willow-inspired shapes to classic Christmas-tree pines or even realistic-looking faux maples sporting fall colors. All of them stay in season, thanks to seasonal touches, such as black tinsel, orange or purple lights and black trunks.
Glitter can add dimension to your decorations, but it can also add a mess. If you don’t want to deal with extra cleanup, look for a Halloween tree that doesn’t have glitter on its trunk. Alternatively, you can keep glitter from shedding by lightly misting the trunk with hairspray — just be sure to keep it away from the LED lightbulbs.
