Soon, the Halloween season will be upon us. Ghosts and skeletons will make their appearances. Unless your home has a portal to some other dimension, this means planning and purchasing Halloween decor. The key to making your theme stand out is by having a good mix of scary and cute.
Making a splash when it comes to decorating does not mean having to spend top dollar. This is especially true for seasonal events like Halloween. If you want to have a different set of decorations every year, it does not make sense to spend so much. Whether you are going for cute or outright scary, all you need is a pinch of creativity to decorate for this season.
If the cost of decorations is the scariest part about Halloween, then here is a trick that can be quite the treat for you. The Dollar Store can be your go-to place in finding decorations on a budget. It is a great resource for crafting supplies and other materials that you can modify to create Halloween decor. Here is a list of some DIY Dollar Store Halloween decorations you might want to try out.
1. Hang Balloon Jack O’ Lantern Buntings
Who says that Jack O’ Lanterns need to be made from pumpkins? Balloon Jack O’ Lanterns are easier and more versatile. Hang these buntings on the doorway or across a window. It’s also a great way to decorate when there are kids in the house. The little ones will get a kick out of seeing these lanterns and their goofy smiling faces.
2. Craft Some Mason Jar Mummies
Extremely adorable and extremely simple – that is the winning combination of this decor. Imagine lining up your porch with these little mummy mason jars. Both the jars and the googly eyes can be purchased for a song in the Dollar Tree shop. There is also the bonus of having a lot of containers for food after the Halloween season is over.
3. Make your Own Spooky Welcome Signage
A spooky sign outside your house will tell trick or treaters exactly what they are in for. This is the perfect decoration for those who want to flex their lettering skills. It is also a great way to have a more personalized decor for Halloween.
4. Let the Door Do the Welcoming
If you are looking for something that is easy to do but has a great impact, then this decor is for you. You can use your existing door as a canvas to this larger-than-life scary smiling face. It is made completely out of paper and can be customized the way you want.
5. Catch Dirty Shoes with a Spiderweb Welcome Mat
With so many people coming in and out of the home during the Halloween season, going for decor that lands on the practical side are not a bad idea. All you need is to do a bit of cutting and a bit of painting and you add a nice little Halloween touch. Plus, you save yourself from clean-up after – a definite win-win situation.
6. Go for Stack O’ Lanterns Instead of Jack O’ Lanterns
Everyone has seen those inexpensive jack o’ lantern baskets kids use to get their treats. But that’s just one way to look at them. Stretch your imagination and see this common Halloween item can look like when all piled up high to create more impact. The tall structure makes it look like you put more effort into the decor, when in truth, it is as easy as one, two, three… or four pumpkins all piled up.
