What a great job on all of them. I would like to know how you made the fingers in the lace and hand ones. Please.

You always have a great tree.

Glad you liked seeing them and Jean, I bought the plastic witch hands at Dollar Tree. I had seen some decorated on the internet so wanted to make some also. I made a small Halloween album for a friend and incorporated a hand on the cover page. It turned out neat

Evelyn, I love my little seasonal tree and sometimes I slack off about decorating it but I have Valentines, Easter, Spring, Summer, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Fall and of course Christmas decorations that I have made or collected over the years and sometimes find new things to add to it. Please get one for yourself and enjoy it as I do . I love changing the little vignette scene in front of it each time I decorate .
After Christmas is a great time to get a small tree for very little. I think mine was $3
Try it-- you'll love it

shawneegal, what size is your tree? I've often thought of getting one & never have. But when I see how people use them thru the year, I love how they look.

I love your little tree. I have a much smaller white tree that I decorate for various holidays, and I enjoy it, but I like that yours is green. I was at hobby lobby last week, and they had a BIG 9' tree decorated for fall. Not Halloween, which would be adorable, but fall, which would not need to be redecorated at the end of October. It took my breath away, but I'm thinking one your size is much more reasonable. TFS

Mine is a four foot tree and just the right size to use year round. It is a slim one and doesn't take up too much room
Glad you enjoyed seeing mine and I hope you will try one

Loved your many decorations - but those hands freeked me out - they are really cute. I have a tree that I decorate for the different seasons - but much much smaller. I got it at the Dollar store and its white and made out of hanger wires. Doesn't take much to amuse me and make me happy. Family keeps asking me how many more years do I plan on using it. Guess they feel I have gotten my money's worth! Thanks for showing.

Penny, we live in country also and even though I fix treat bags hubby and I usually end up eating them. Our grand children are grown and no one comes to see the tree sometimes -- but-- I enjoy it so I feel like that is worth something.
Do things YOU enjoy and like and if no one else does -- so what ? You are worth it. Glad you liked seeing my crafts and 5bells-- did I send one of the hands to you last year ?

Pam you did send me a hand last year. I am putting up my Halloween tree up this year, and it will be in the front. I will take a picture of it and have my daughter send a picture to you of my tree.
What are you doing this year. I love all the crafts you do.

I have a drawer full of ideas to do for Halloween but haven't started anything yet ha ha
Right now, I am still canning and freezing veggies but my freezer groans everytime I open the door . I have about had it with preparing for winter. That is awful since my poor mom used to can 100's of jars of food to see us thru the winter and here I am complaining about putting up a few things. Lazy me !
I will let you know when I decide what to do this year. Hopefully I carry thru with some of my ideas.
Wish someone else would show some of their crafts , also

I need to come up there to help you unload that freezer. Please save me some of those wonderful pickled beets.
Can't wait to see your Halloween ideas.

Diane, Matilda never looked so well. It's always a pleasure to see her this time of year. Her/your display looks awesome.

Just thought I would add a halloween pic. Done a while ago I must say. LOL
