The spookiest holiday trend to sweep Instagram is… Halloween Christmas trees! The fang-tastic decorations could be a perfect addition to your home if you love Halloween and want to give your home a haunted makeover with DIY Halloween decorations.

Halloween Christmas trees started popping up on Instagram a couple years ago. The trend started back in 2016, but this year it seems that the decorating craze is finally building steam. Just scroll through the hashtag #HalloweenChristmasTree to see what all the fuss is about.

Halloween Christmas Tree Ideas We Love

You’ll notice instead of red and green, most decorators use orange and black. And the traditional Christmas ornaments are replaced with bats, pumpkins, ghosts, spiders and more.

This “spooky little tree” from @hannahlucyrose is too cute!

This Halloween Christmas tree from @sami_riccioli has to be Nightmare Before Christmas-inspired. I want to sip a Jack Skellington Frappuccino and admire her handiwork.

Not all Halloween trees have a typical Christmas tree shape, though. This haunted gem from @littlehauntedhome is tall and skinny, and delivers all the spooky vibes.

Halloween candy has, of course, been incorporated into the decorations. Set up a sweet Halloween Christmas tree before trick-or-treat, and then hand out the most popular Halloween candy in your state.

It looks like most fans of Halloween will start to put together spooky trees as soon as September hits. If you’re ready to DIY a Halloween Christmas tree, we recommend a bright orange tree or something dark and spooky! And if you don’t want to DIY, this ceramic Halloween tree is a must.
