Dollar Store DIY Halloween Decoration Ideas

Do you love Halloween? It is definitely one of my favorite holidays. And when the holidays roll around we always take a trip to our local dollar store. In fact, we always go to Dollar Tree, my absolute favorite dollar store around. I find they have more name-brand items and we love the selection of holiday decore.

Although holidays can feel expensive, creating amazing DIY Halloween decorations will save you money this Halloween and help you get into the holiday spirit.

  1. If you get the small pie pumpkins and use dry erase marker on them you can wipe away the color with a wash cloth when you are ready to cook them and then you have yummy pumpkin puree to bake with. It is phenomenal and very frugal.
