Cheap Halloween Decorations

by Chris on September 29, 2013

Happy Monday! Fall is here (woo hop!), and I’ve been doing a little Halloweening around the place. I’m not decorating the mantel this year (gasp!!), so a little vignette in the dining room will have to do. It’s rather unhealthy how drawn I am to Halloween decor, so I vowed to purchase the least expensive items I could find. That, of course, forced me to be a little creative with how I used them!

Halloween Vignette

The spiders were for another craft, but I think they were $2.00 for a pack of 8? I put a piece of white paper in the frame, and glued them on there.

Halloween spiders

The black spider web is actually a felt coaster. Michaels for $2.47? I should know these things, right? I used a piece of black tule to give it a little dimension on the white paper. Again, glued it on there.

Halloween web

And the black bat. It was $1.99 at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. I think it’s a placemat? I turned over the back of the frame and painted it white. Then guess what I did. Go ahead. Guess. I glued the bat on there. Your mind? It’s blown. 

Halloween craft

Since I used the webs and spiders for other projects, I’m gonna say this whole thing cost less than $5.00. That’s what I do. I actually spent $6.47 but I convinced myself it actually cost much less. I find that concept helps with my marriage too. I’ll be back with another project later this week!

Want some more Halloween inspiration Just a Girl style? Here’s some other projects I’ve done. Clearly, I like the black and white. Check out the Halloween wreath, witch mantel, Halloween clock, and Halloween mantel

Love this! So simple but it looks very Pottery Barn-ish, for a fraction of the cost…&, heck, even I can glue!

Love it! Looks fresh and modern. I miss the mantel though-just love the family photo with the witches; always makes me laugh.

I think you do your best work with less money….still amazed at what you did with those empty toilet paper rolls. I’ll never forget that piece of art.

Mind blown. Only you take a flipping spider, frame it, and it looks that chic. Seriously cute my friend.
