Treetopia’s Scary Room Series

Treetopia has teamed up with twelve spooktacular bloggers, and asked each one to decorate a room in their home with a haunted house theme featuring their trees and foliage. Whenever I think about haunted houses, I picture ghosts so I decided to decorate using all sorts of ghosts.

You too can win the pink tree that I have decorated, just check out the post on my instagram account for all the info.

Treetopia is also running a scavenger hunt where 3 lucky winners will go home with a Halloween tree of their own. Simply take a screenshot of the hidden treetopia logo on any of the blog posts and upload it here, the more logos you find the more chances you have to win.

I decorated the 6′ Prelit Pretty in Pink Artificial Christmas Tree with Pink Lights and 24″ Prelit Pretty In Pink Artificial Christmas Wreath with Pink Lights

I collected cheap dolls I found at thrift shops and then cut up a second hand white sheet to create their ghost costumes. The add such a scary touch but were really inexpensive and fast to make.

Black Phillip Cookies

Nothing says Merry Christmas quite like goat cookies from a movie about witches, am I right? Last week while in Target I stumbled upon this goat cookie cutter. It’s part of their new Hearth & Home line, and because of the color immediately brought to mind Black Phillip from the movie The VVitch.
We have a friend who really loves this movie, and he has a black Christmas tree, so goat cookies from a movie about witches is actually a perfect Christmas gift for him, and maybe someone you know too?

The cookies are simply a dark chocolate cut out cookie. Now you could add sprinkles or dip the tops into chocolate, but I found if you use a high quality chocolate power you won’t need anything on top. I used the recipe found here. Only I used flour to cut them out and the flour wasn’t noticeable after baking.
I created Black Phillip gift toppers which you can print out below:

Package up some cookies in a clear bag with a topper, tie on a goat cookie cutter and there you go!
