First things first…before you kill me, I realize that Halloween is still a few months away BUT one of the easiest ways to save money is to START EARLY. So I’m sharing these great tips for inexpensive Halloween decorations so you can start looking and DIY’ing now instead of overspending at the last minute. Carry on. 🙂
Halloween is a fun holiday for people of all ages. That doesn’t mean you have to spend a lot of money though. Whether you make your own decorations or shop at the dollar store, you can decorate for Halloween on the cheap.
- Make Your Own Decorations – First things first. You can make your own Halloween decorations and save a lot of money. This is a great project to work on with your kids. You can find tons of great posts on Pinterest that will show you a variety of fun decorations you can make on the cheap. In fact, I even have a post here to make DIY Giant Pom Pom Spiders.
- Shop Thrift Stores – Another great tip is to shop at thrift stores. You can find so many great decorations for very little money. It’s not uncommon to find decorations for as little as $0.10 each. Start shopping as early as possible and hit your local thrift store frequently. Thrift stores are always putting out Halloween decorations in the months of September and October. You can find even better deals on what’s left over in the weeks after Halloween. Shop these deals for next Halloween.
- Hit the dollar store – The dollar store is one of the best places to shop for Halloween decorations on the cheap. You can find so many great things. There are wooden signs, candy bowls, wall hangings, solar decorations, window decorations, and so much more. With everything costing only a dollar, you’ll be able to buy lots of decorations for very little money.
- Fill Glass Containers with Candy – If you have glass food canisters in your home, fill them with Halloween-colored candy for a quick and easy decoration. This is a great if you want to add Halloween colors to your home, but want to do so in an elegant way. If you have a local candy shop, you can even shop for candy by colors and get the exact look you want.
- Recycle Items Around Your Home – Last, but not least, if you have items you no longer use, turn them into Halloween decorations. For example, if you have cheap vases you no longer use, use spray paint to paint them orange, black, green, or purple. This is a great way to use the items that are just gathering dust.
You don’t have to spend a lot of money to decorate your home this Halloween. Start early, think outside the box and HAVE FUN!
