100 Dollar Store Halloween Decorations

Give your home a spooky makeover for less with these dollar store Halloween decor ideas. From wreaths to centerpieces, there are DIY decoration ideas for your whole house. You can get most of the items for these projects at Dollar Tree or other dollar stores. However, you will need some basic crafting supplies such as hot glue gun, paint, paint brushes, etc.

Things You Can Get at Dollar Tree:

  • plastic and foam skulls
  • plastic and foam pumpkins
  • creepy cloth
  • pumpkin pails
  • spiders and webs
  • crows, rats, insects, etc.
  • halloween ribbons
  • glass candleholders
  • candles
  • vases
  • picture frames
  • Mod Podge
  • twine
  • burlap
  • & much more

Crafting Supplies You May Need:

  • Hot glue gun (my favorite one is this one from Amazon, it’s a mini so it’s great for small projects like these and it comes with the glue sticks). You can also find them for a similar price at Walmart.
  • Small paint or sponge brush. You can get them for $0.50-$1 at Walmart
  • Acrylic paint or spray paint. You can get small bottles of acrylic paint for $0.50 and basic spray paint for $1-$2 at Walmart
