I love, love, love Halloween. I start decorating in September. It is really easy to decorate your entire home for Halloween with very little money, since there are so many low price options out there these days!
I get most of my stuff at Wal-Mart and the Dollar Store. Since I have two young kids, I don’t want items that are too scary or that can break easily, so the cheaper stuff works well for the look I am going for. I also don’t have time to make stuff myself. I see tons of cute crafty ideas out there, but by the time I buy all the supplies (since I own very few craft items, even the common ones!) and make it (and inevitably… screw it up) I could have just bought it! (and probably for less money!)
This year Wal-Mart was a gold mine of Halloween stuff… but if you are not into sparkles, then you will hate most of what they have. Lucky for me, I love everything that glitters and most of my holiday decor shows it. (glitter Christmas tree? Sure!! Why not?)
They had signs, skulls, and pumpkins all covered in glitter, and almost everything was less than $2! These signs were $1.97… the pumpkins were $.97 and the large skulls were a bit more (I think $2.97??) The glitter skulls are my favorite, since even though they are Styrofoam… they look way more expensive. I saw many similar glitter skulls at HomeGoods for $20 or more! I also got a bag of mini skulls for my apothecary jars and some tattered ‘scary’ fabric. My shopping cart was literally leaving behind a trail of glitter and I couldn’t have been happier.
The dollar store has great stuff for decorating outside. They have the cheapest spider webs there, which is a must have! I buy at least 5 bags. I let my son go to town with this stuff! He decorates all the shrubs with it however he likes! This year, I also used it on my large dining room mirror and I love it. They also have scary door knockers, pumpkins, spooky gates, and plastic skulls that we just throw around our yard.
This year I also got some Halloween cups, bowls, & skull goblets (hello… wine glasses!) since we host a big pumpkin carving party every year for the family and I like to be prepared with fun stuff! Dollar Store score!
Where do you go to find awesome Halloween decorations that are scary cheap?
*Nothing in this post was sponsored or given to me for free, I just love cheap, sparkly things*
Omg in love with ALL of this!!! Fabulous job ❤❤❤❤
Thank you!! You really can't go wrong when glitter is involved!
You have some great stuff. I got all of my fall decor from the Dollar Store. I might get a couple things for the big night thats Halloween.
I also love the Christmas stuff they get, lots of cheapie mini ornaments to use as fillers or garland. (and they are plastic so the kids cant break them!) 😉

Believe it or not Micheals had a lot of their decor on sale. Plus they always have coupons so if you stack them up you can get some Great deals!
Cute post I used a lot of sparkles on our Halloween decorations this year too!
I have been meaning to go to Michaels for the past few weeks, since I love that store!!
These are awesome decorations. I especially love the skeleton. 🙂
Thank you! Have a great weekend!!

Oh, man! This is making me so sad that I can't decorate this year! I love Halloween decorations, I usually start in September too. My favorite is the cobwebs, I love trying to make them look as real as possible. Now I can't wait for next year!
Yes, as you can tell making the cobwebs look 'real' is not a priority of mine! (well, of my son I should say!) HA! And I totally understand, when I was 8 months pregnant with my second, we were in between houses for two weeks since the renovations took so long.. so we moved in with my in laws during Christmas! I was so thankful to be with them and it was such a special memory for my son, but I was so stressed about it all!

Haha I have been known to leave a trail of glitter as well 😉
I love getting new Halloween decorations. Yours are really cool!

Love the disco ball skull! 🙂
These are great, frugal ideas for Halloween! I need to check out the dollar store more frequently. Cheap decorations are a must since I have little ones who often break things, hehe!
Melissa Matters says
Wow! Love the skull and all of your decorations. I picked up some cute spiders for $1 at the Target dollar spot. I saw some great things there too. I'm sure I'll be back for more. I'll have to check out Walmart too.
You're so creative! Nice job! I haven't done a lot of decorating in the last couple years, but you're giving me the itch! Thanks for linking up, by the way! 🙂

Your decorations are so cute! I love the skeleton in the yard–we had one in our front yard until most of him was blown away one very windy day. 🙂
Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. Here in Thailand it isn't really that popular except for with the expat crowd, so most of my halloween decorations are the ones made with my toddler. This means a ton of paper towel ghosts and colored pumpkin cut outs. 🙂
