Spook for Less!

Decorating for Halloween can be more budget friendly than you think. For example you can reuse purple Christmas baubles and place them on wreaths or in jars to make centerpieces. You can also stock up on items from your local dollar store and if they aren't exactly what you are looking for then you can make tweaks by spray painting them. Decorate your home on a budget with these Dollar Store Halloween Decorations.
