Decorating your house for any holiday is not cheap. When we first moved into our house, I gave Jon a budget for Halloween decor and he quickly blew through it. Christmas is a different story...I always stock up on after Christmas clearance but that just doesn't seem to happen with Halloween. As the clock strikes midnight on November 1st, Christmas season begins. While I feel pretty good about the Halloween decor we have, I always love adding new little things/crafts to our collection, especially now that Ford is getting older. I am not shy about my love for saving money and am so excited to share with you today some easy ways to decorate your home for Halloween on a budget! Who knew that Dollar Tree can be your one stop shop to a spooktacular Halloween!
My Dollar Tree loot.... yes everything is a dollar!
Haunted roses with glittery spiders from Dollar Tree plopped in a mason jar I had on hand with a little $1 pumpkin guy siting next to my sink.
A clearance platter with a Dollar Tree skeleton head on my bar
I already owned these glass jars from Ford's Milk and Cookies birthday party so I put fake spiders, body parts/eyeballs, and fake rats on display in a "mad scientist" way.
Skeleton, fake hand, and glittery skull head from Dollar Tree really make a statement on my entry table.
I could not believe the orange and black Happy Halloween sign was a buck! It added height and color to my mantle (homemade BOO letters, bunting made from scrapbook paper, and mini pumpkins bought at the grocery store).
I hung this haunted halo-gram picture on the corner because I walk by 100 times a day. Yes a dollar at Dollar Tree!
A couple packages of cheese cloth over my dining room chandelier and a creepy fake black bird, one of my favorite decorations!
A little snapshot of our outdoor decor (I need to get a picture at night of our house)...$1 tombstones, light up zombie guy, and a scary lady in the window.
