This spooktacular Halloween decoration cost just $5 to make with items from The Dollar Tree, and was easy to make!
Halloween is such a fun holiday, and while I enjoy Halloween decorations, I don’t own very many. I break my fall decorations out in September, and they stay up until after Thanksgiving, when my house becomes a winter wonderland of sorts. For just $5, I was able to create this fun Halloween decoration that I won’t feel guilty for swapping out after a few weeks, for more general fall decor.
For this project you’ll need:
Glue gun with glue sticks
wire snips, or heavy duty scissors
1 glitter stem – I used purple
1 floral bush – I used black roses, my Dollar Tree also had purple, and purple and black roses
1 strand tinsel – I used black and purple
1 felt hanging decor – I used black and purple, the store I was at had several options, including ghosts and jack-o-lanterns
1 “boo” hanging sign
I started by gluing the tinsel around the felt piece, it went around twice, with just a little extra left over. You could snip this off, or just lap it over, like I did.
Next I glued the “boo” sign to the back. I wanted mine to hang at an angle, but you could arrange yours however you like. The satin ribbon on the sign was easy to glue to the felt, but I let it cool for about 5 minutes before moving it.
Using wire snips, I cut the flowers off the bush, leaving about 2 inches of wire stem, which I folded back.
I glued the wire onto the back of the felt, arranging the flowers around the bottom of the felt circle. I let the glue cool for about 5 minutes, applying light pressure as needed.
For the last step, I separated the glitter stems, using 2 on each side of the flowers. There were 5 on the stem, but I wanted to keep things even.
And that’s it! After your glue has cooled completely, your Halloween masterpiece is ready to hang.
Selections can vary from store to store, but there are lots of fun combinations using different felt circles, tinsels, and flowers. If you are inspired to create your own dollar store Halloween decor, I’d love to see your creations! Tag me on Instagram @thesundayfundayblog
