Monster Mash Halloween Tree and a Giveaway!

Big GIVEAWAY and discount offered in this here blog post...keep reading for your chance to win!

Hello, Goblins and Ghouls...I'm super stoked to share with you my Monster Mash Halloween Tree! I was recently given this amazing Candy Corn Tree from Treetopia and tasked with coming up with a theme to not only decorate it...but create the ornaments for the tree as well. For the creation of the decorations, I reached out to my friends at Activa Products for some of my favorite sculpting supplies. I'll be sharing one of my favorite creations here in this blog post, the Spooky Scary Skeletons! 

But first...my tree!
 I received my tree from Treetopia lightening fast. I was surprised when I unpacked it just how big, full and bright it is. I absolutely love this big ole candy corn tree. I will say, I was a little overwhelmed at first: how was I going to decorate this tree? It already looked fabulous enough as it was. Here's a peek at my unboxing of the beast:
Super easy to assemble and such a full tree! I love that I don't have bald spots in my tree.
Back to decorating...I was like, HOW?! But then I got to thinking: I've always loved the classic Universal Studios horror movies like Frankenstein, Dracula, Bride of Frank, The Mummy...you name it. With that in mind, when Monster Mash came on while I was playing Halloween music in my art room, I knew THAT had to be my theme. So, Monster Mash Halloween Tree it was!
Nothing says a dance party like some disco balls, amirite?!
Over the next couple of days, I'll be sharing with you a TON of Halloweenie How-to's as I show you how I created nearly every bit of spooky decoration on this tree. Today, I thought I'd share how I created these Eye-Popping Spooky Scary Skeletons! 
Here's your list of supplies:

* A plastic skull. I found mine at a local craft store...but right now, you can find a plastic skull just about everywhere. 

* Aluminum foil. I like the cheap stuff from the Dollar Tree because it comes in precut sheets that are the perfect size.

* Rigid Wrap Plaster Strips. I love plaster strips because they dry so fast! I used them in the making of the eyeballs.

* Cheesecloth. Check the cooking/baking section of your grocery store. 

* Liquid Starch. Sta-Flo is my go to. Mostly because I want that to be my rapper name. Sta-Flo Stephens.

* Acrylic Paint and Paint Brushes. 
Once you learn the magic of liquid starch and cheesecloth, you are gonna be like me and go crazy covering everything in it! You can see that's just what I did here to create ole Frank. 
Be sure and stay tuned right here and my YouTube channel as I share all of these Halloween DIYs with y'all!
 Like these silly chatter mouth teeth...
And more monsters from the mash like The Mummy...who I find to be the most frightening part of my tree. 
 Or maybe it's Dracula trying to bite through the caution tape! By the way, you can find out how to create these eye-popping ornaments here:
Lighting fast video of how to create these fun and funky eyeball ornaments. 
 I have always loved decorating for Halloween but this tree just took it to another spooktackular level. You can find my Top Ten Fall Crafts here for more ideas. 
 But now that I've shown you around my tree and shared a couple DIY's with you, let's talk about that give away, shall we?
Treetopia is allowing me to giveaway a $150 Gift Card to their online store! That's right, I'm super excited about this one...if you've not explored their site, then you must. They have so many trees to offer with my current favorite being the Candy Corn tree, obviously. However, next on my faves: THEIR RAINBOW TREE, what?! How perfect would that be in an art room, right?! 
 Here's how you can enter to win:

1. Comment. Leave a comment below and share your favorite horror movie of all time. More importantly: leave your FULL NAME and EMAIL ADDRESS as well. 

2. Follow. If you are on Instagram, follow me here and Treetopia here! If you are not on IG but on FB, then you can find me here and Treetopia there

That's it! I'll let all y'all know this Friday, October 13th who the lucky winner is!

What an exciting giveaway and discount, right?! I am itching to get myself another Halloween tree. That black and white stripe one is calling my name, y'all!
But I'm pretty sure the neighbors have enough to say about one Halloween tree...best not start adding more. 
 By the way, if you create any of your own skulls and eyeballs, please make sure to share with me be tagging me in your preferred social media outlet. I'd love to see what you create. 
Stay tuned for many more Halloween How-to's...my list of spooky DIY's grows daily. October just isn't long enough for me.
Or my eye-poppingly handsome friends. 
Too much? Eh, never! Let it all hang out, Gus!

Be sure to enter to win that giveaway, y'all, it's a good one! I'll let you know the winner this Friday!

  2. Scream is my favorite scary movie, because it's the first one I watched as a kid! All my cousins are older than me and they wanted to watch it, but would only let me watch with them if my oldest cousin covered my eyes and ears at any of the bad parts, ha! I love your Halloween tree, Cassie! It's so unique and fun!! I love seeing all your DIY projects and your classroom projects! PS- My name is Taylor Preckel and my email is taylorpreckel@gmail.com

  101. Okay, I'll admit it. Halloween is my fave holiday, but scary movies are my nemesis! I freaked during Poltergeist (which isn't all that scary, is it?) in high school, but (bonus) my crush left with me and we went in the next theater and watched Splash instead. So, Cassie, I have NO favorite scary movie...my head is hung in shame!

    The Shining or any Alfred Hitchcock Classics (The Birds, Rear Window) are my favorite "scary" movies. You are amazing and I want to be you when I grow up. Even though I think you are younger than me? haha!

    So much fun! I'm already envisioning a Dia De Los Muertos tree with sugar skull ornaments and papel picado banners around it for my classroom! Favorite scary movie, The Shining, classic! Little known fact, the boy that played Danny didnt know he was in a horror movie until he was in college and casually mentioned that he was in a movie as a kid. Kubrick was so careful to shoot all of his scenes separate from all of the scary scenes, he actually thought he was just in a boring movie about a kid with an imaginary friend and his parents in a big hotel.

  112. Jill Nettels here! Jnintze@gmail.com Fave Halloween movie is from my childhood..."The Worst Witch", featuring Tim Curry as the Grand Wizard. It is so 80's and nostalgic. Remember Fairuza Bulk from The Craft? Well, she is young Mildred Hubble...baby Fairuza! Pre-evil crazy witch role...Anyway, I love your tree and your craftin' is so inspiring.
