Tips for Dollar Store Halloween Decorations

  3. Haunted Mirror – Pick up a cheap mirror and use glass stickers or crayon shavings to create creepy handprints, words, or ghostly figures that appear to be inside the mirror.

  5. Witch’s Cupboard – Decorate an old cupboard door with crinkled tissue paper, plastic spiders and rats to look like a witch’s pantry of gross ingredients.
  6. Pumpkin-O-Lanterns – Instead of carving pumpkins, decorate dollar store paper lanterns with pumpkin faces using permanent markers.
  7. Potion Centerpiece – Fill glass containers with plastic spiders, fake eyeballs and food coloring to create eerie “potions” for a table centerpiece.
