It seems like I’m always strapped for cash (who isn’t?!) and I really hate spending loads of money on holiday decor that you use for only 3-4 weeks. So I did what I do best; I headed to the dollar store (Dollar Tree) and loaded up. Headstone Yard Decorations

You’d think foam headstones would be cheap, but the aren’t! I found them for ten bucks each at Target. Gasp! Yikes. Of course, Dollar Tree has them for a buck o’ piece, so I loaded up. The only problem? There’s no way to stick them in the ground. I’m not gonna let that stop me! I headed to Home Depot and bought a 12-pack of wooden stakes. They were about $4 for the package. We just hammered them into the ground then I used my staple gun to attach the headstones to the stakes. You can also just nail them in, or glue them on, or heck, tie them on with some twine.

After all that, the kids went to town covering them all with the spider webbing. We even added a dollar store bird to the top of one of the signs.

Creepy Door Wreath

To create the Creepy Door Wreath I took a dollar store wreath, spray painted it black, hot glued the sign on, hot glued the ribbon on, and hung it to the door. The kids added the creepy-crawly spider web. The cheapest and easiest wreath I’ve ever made, and probably one of my favorites!

Boney Window Decor

I bought three glow-in-the-dark Skeletons and used some box tape to hang them on the windows on the front of our house. They are a little bit harder to spot during the day, but the creepiness factor is on ultra-high at night when they come alive (they glow)! And of course you can’t go wrong by adding dollar store spider rings to all the web you just hung.

Mini Skeletons in an Apothecary Jar

I fell head-over-heels with their mini skeletons! They come strung up, but I quickly snipped the jute off their necks and had a pile of skeletons. By adding some moss in a large apothecary jar, then piling in the mini skeletons, I’ve created the perfect touch of creepy for my mantle.

Mini Skulls in an Apothecary Jar

Another quick creepy idea is to take mini skulls and stuff them into a mini apothecary jar with some more moss. Que “Thriller”.

Jack-o-Lantern Garland

We found some mini foam pumpkins (in a 12 pack I think) from, you guessed it! The dollar store. I bought two packages. We used a hole-punch to punch holes in either side of each pumpkin, then tied them all together to form garland.

I hope I’ve given you some last-minute cheap decorating ideas for Halloween!

Always remember: Holiday decorating does not need to break the bank! There are lots of viable options, especially at dollar stores. Just get creative with how you use the cheap crap over there and you can come up with some pretty cool decorating ideas!
