Here is what my $15 got me. I was pretty impressed with the Halloween selection at Dollar Tree! They had a lot of unique and different décor items I was not expecting. Plus $15 goes a long way!

The first thing I decided to make were some Halloween cups. I found some black glass cups and a skeleton garland. I cut apart the skeletons and hot glued a skeleton to the glass. Super simple.

Then I decided to make a tablescape for my dining room table. First I took some candles I had laying around that I spray painted black. The candles, spray paint and vases were all things I had at home and didn’t buy at Dollar Tree. I had bought some spiders from Dollar Tree that were two for a dollar and hot glued them to the candles. I really like how they turned out!

I also so took some bags of eyes and added them to each vase. Then I added some decorative branches. Really easy!

I also found this skull and added it to a pedestal and added in the little and big spiders. Over all I love how the tablescape turned out!

If you didn’t want to do a tablescape try decorating a buffet or mantle. I used all the same items but hung the netting and placed the skeletons and spiders on it. For $15 I thought it turned out pretty good as well. Decorating especially for holidays does not have to be expensive. Hopefully this gives you some ideas for your own home!
