Cut a branch. Spray paint both an old bleach bottle and the branch with fast drying black spray paint. Place one small set of white Christmas lights on the branches and hang hollow plastic pumpkins found in the dollar store.
It is best to fill the plastic bottle with water or sand to keep it from tipping.

How fun! What a great thing for kids to do too. (10/14/2008)
We did this with a very small tree I got at the $1 Store (1/2 off lol) at Christmas for my daughter's American Girl Doll. She loves it! We last decorated for Easter. It is time for Halloween! Cute post. (10/14/2008)
How cute! I love this idea! :) (10/14/2008)
I love this idea and tried it years ago for a few holidays at an office where I worked. (Pediatrics, the kids loved it but the doctors got tired of seeing a "Christmas Tree" by April) However, after 3 months or so, it started to look dusty and dirty. How do you clean the tree in between changes of holidays?? (10/15/2008)
I wish I had the energy, I have an extra tree that I was going to do that with, BUT this is what we did instead LOL! (10/15/2008)
I must mention that holiday tree decorating started with a spring tree for my 8 year old to do crafts with! It must be quite the adventure with more than one child! (10/15/2008)
