Looking for some last-minute Halloween decorating ideas on a budget? Here’s some Dollar Store Halloween Decor I found for only $7.
It’s a fact.
I like my Halloween a little bit un-spooky. Now don’t get me wrong. I like a boo or an eek or a yikes as much as the next person.
A little bit of scare is fine with me.
A few spiders and a creepy bat and some spider webs draped here and there and I’m all set.
I just need a little Halloween to tide me over until Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Not too much.
That’s why I went all Dollar Store Halloween Decor on this table and created it for only $7.
Want to see how I did it?
Here are the items on my shopping list.
This purple spider web bowl for $1.
There were also some cute spider web chargers, too.
Four of these placemats for $1 each.
They are cute, but not really that Halloweeny.
I spiderwebbed them up.
And two bags of these spiders for $1 each.
Grand total: $7 + tax.
And here’s how I transformed them.
I started with the placemats.
I flipped them over because they were all white on the back.
They are a foam material that works perfectly with sharpies.
I started by using a ruler and a sharpie to draw straight lines on either side of the placemat.
These are going to become two spider webs.
I drew the lines about 3 inches apart.
Next, using a ruler, draw the lines in between the straight lines to mimic a web.
DO NOT over think this.
You just want to have fun.
I made four of these placemats in about 20 minutes or about one episode of Judge Judy.
Here’s a glimpse of the final placemats on the table.
The spiders were spray painted silver and added them to the webs.
These branches from the yard were spray painted black.
I added them to a vase and tucked more spray painted spiders into the branches.
The silver looks amazing against the black.
Lastly, I took the purple bowl and spray painted it black.
I just added it to the table and tucked a felted wool pumpkin and some spiders into it.
You can see how to make these pumpkins here.
And that’s it.
Here’s the entire table setting.
This is what $7 spent at the Dollar Store can look like.
And it’s only a little spidery.
Not too much.
How about you?
Do you like your Halloween creepy or cute?
