Halloween on a Dollar Store Budget!

Halloween is around the corner and it’s my ALL TIME Favorite holiday to craft and decorate for!  (even over Christmas)
Today I am sharing easy DIY Halloween Décor using dollar store items ONLY!
Plates, plastic wine glasses, beads, candles, goodie bags and more…all there for the crafting!

Halloween entertaining does not have to break the bank.   Using my Silhouette Cameo I was able to take dollar store items and transform them into Halloween décor.  Don’t have a Silhouette? That’s can use stickers and even Sharpie Markers to embellish these items.

The candles were plain white and using some black vinyl I cut out a few spooky silhouettes to add to them.   Adding this black cloth was the touch I needed for my outdoor candle shelf.  Love the look!

I must have a dozen themed wine glasses (don’t judge). I like to have them for various occasions and holidays.  I found these clear plastic “glasses” and using the vinyl I added these cool creepy silhouettes to them.  Bonus for me, hard to break these!

Goodie bags can be fun to decorate.  Sticking to my mission of only using dollar store items, I added some eyes to these white goodie boxes (found in the wedding section).  I so wanted to use Washi Tape, but they had none and I was not going to “cheat’ and use my own stash.   Filling them with some traditional peanut butter candy (of course from the dollar store). Added a little color too!

The last thing on my list to do was a centerpiece wreath.  Using the dollar store wreath form, some glue and moss – it was easy!  Added the boney hand and some spider rings to top it off.   You can hang or use like I did on the table.  The black runner that is under this is also from the dollar store.
