I decorate this little bitty tree for Halloween every year. I put little spooky ornaments of orange and black, and also a string of lights shaped like ghosts! The tree is about two feet tall or less, and I decorate it for Christmas in December, too.

Multi-colored cloths hanging from tree branch, plus other Halloween decorations like skeletons (for Dia de los Muertos ) These were seen at a local park one year for a celebration.

  1. love the Halloween park photo. Once I bought a set of the prayer flags (the cloth squares) and hung it on my back deck. The squares are simple unhemmed pieces of cloth, fastened on a length of twine. The wind flaps these little flags and they slowly unravel, with theads disappearing in the wind. Each had a little symbol and a word (peace, love, joy…etc.) stenciled on. (In fact I think I have a pic from back when…) I think I’ll make some more, thanks for the reminder…

    • Thanks so much! I love all Halloween decorations. So cool you’ve had some of the prayer flags to hang up. I didn’t know that’s what they were called, but we see them a lot around Halloween. 🙂

      • We bought ours at the “witch store” as I call it. I’m not sure if that shop is still operating because of Covid. It was actually owned by Wiccans. They had a nice selection of flags and wall hangings, cards, etc.

        The flags also remind me of Mexican decorations that are made of paper and lacy cutouts. I looked all over the village I was visting and finally found some authentic ones. I still have them wrapped in the original packaging.

      • The witch store! I’m sure I’d love to browse around in there. We used to have a similar store here that sold all kinds of new age things. I’d buy incense and crystals and other stones there, but the went out of business as the owners retired. Each year too here in town there is the Mexican celebration of Dia de los Muertos, where art and offrendas are displayed, and you can buy little things like the lacey flags along with other things. It’s fun. 🙂
