Treetopia’s Scary Rooms Scavenger Hunt Giveaway

Alien Autopsy Halloween decor with crocheted alien and pink Halloween tree covered in UFOs

Pink Halloween Tree – Alien Autopsy Style!

Quote from my mom: “It’s funny. AND YUCKY.”

It’s that time of the year again when Treetopia celebrates its biggest scare-fest! They partnered with 12 influencers – including me! – to join their brand ambassador, Jennifer Perkins, in a very unique influencer- hop. Everyone is decorating a room in their homes with a haunted house theme featuring colored trees and foliage from Treetopia, and you have a few ways to win your very own tree! Scroll to the bottom of this post enter. #TreetopiaScaryRooms

While looking at tons of images of haunted houses, I for some reason got really inspired by a particular Alien Autopsy room and completely ran with that theme.

I had so much fun decorating my 5 foot pink tree with pink lights courtesy of Treetopia. I used little green aliens, medium-sized glow in the dark aliens, assorted green tree ornaments, and I made my own UFOs with pie tins, treat container toppers, flat back rhinestones, and really awesome stretchy mesh tubing! I love the contrast of all the green decorations with the pink tree.

A Closer Look At Our Lab

While I focused on crocheting the guest star of my Scary Room – George, the crocheted, autopsied alien – Manda helped me create the crazy laboratory around him. She started by draping everything with plastic painter’s sheeting to create that “secret pop-up laboratory” look.

Initially, my goal was to crochet a bunch of organs to suspend in jars filled with colored water, but I was really pressed for time, so Manda improvised and started digging around in the kitchen for anything and EVERYTHING to put in our jars.

Me: What’s in the blue jar?!

Manda: KALE. AND A ROCK.

We surrounded our laboratory shelf with a 10 ft. pre-lit white Christmas garland which Manda also decorated with aliens, green tree ornaments, and plastic aliens to coordinate with our tree, because who says labs can’t be festive, too?

The “I.V.” bags are actually something you can water your plants with as you set how much it “drips,” and we just hung them on a silver lamp that I almost gave away because I don’t really use it.

Other things in our jars: jumbo bubble wrap, eggs that Manda drew veins on with Sharpie, Polyfil stuffing, udon noodles, FROZEN CHICKEN BREASTS, a dried up air plant, and 1 actual crocheted organ.

We just bought a new cabinet for our living room to hide our vacuum cleaner in, but it made its debut as our mad scientist storage area including anatomical research photos and other intimidating looking tools we happen to have in our garage at the moment.

George, The Crocheted Alien Who Was Tragically Autopsied But Feels Relatively Okay About It

So, I spent a million hours crocheting this alien autopsy, but I didn’t get great photos of him because he was on my dining room table, and I couldn’t get high enough to get his whole body in the frame.

    I would do a Barbie tree. My daughter loves Barbie

  2. Devon says:

    This is so awesome! I’d definitely have an alien / zombie theme to my tree. I’ve been looking for an excuse to “knit my own zombie”. I’d also have to add some crocheted/knitted candy corns and pumpkins.

  3. KrochetKT says:

    I love the crochet alien so much! Is there a pattern somewhere?

    • TwinkieChan says:

      I started taking notes while making him, but I was so out of time when I got to his organs!! I’ll try. I’m in the process of changing jobs, and I may have more time to devote to pattern-writing in the next 2 weeks :).

  4. Kady says:

    This set up is adorable

  5. Mello says:

    I really love the alien theme! If I had a Halloween tree, I would decorate it in a 90s teen slasher theme because those are the movies I grew up watching and I still have such a fondness for them!

    i would use a ghost face mask for the tree topper because Scream is my favorite and probably find little knives and machetes to make into ornaments and crochet horror movie characters.
