Budget-Friendly Halloween Home Tour

Budget-friendly Halloween decorating ideas to create the perfect spooky Halloween home for less. 


It's October, which means it's Halloween month!   

I actually started decorating for Halloween weeks ago, but now it's officially appropriate to have cobwebs, bats, skeletons and a few creepy dolls on full display.

1.  USE WHAT YOU HAVE
If buying new Halloween decor isn't in your budget then get creative with what you have.   Change up where you place decor and consider giving old decor a fresh new look with paint or stain.

3. SHOP SALES AND AFTER HOLIDAY CLEARANCE 
Shopping after holiday clearance sales is the best way to score new decor at the lowest price.  If you can't wait until after Halloween then keep an eye out for other high discount sales.  Michaels and Hobby Lobby are two stores that typically offer 50% off Holiday decor.

4. HIT THE THRIFT STORES 
Thrift stores are a great place to hunt for items that can be repurposed and used for Halloween decor.  I like to look for unique frames and plaques (for creepy pictures), vintage books, creepy dolls, candlesticks and glass jars (to make DIY apothecary jars).

5. BRING THE OUTDOORS IN
Sticks, pinecones and greenery from outside are not only free but are perfect for decorating for fall and Halloween.  I raided our woods for sticks, gave them a few light coats of black spray paint and used them throughout the house for the perfect free spooky Halloween decor.

6. MAKE YOUR OWN BROKEN WALL PIECES
Inexpensive black cardstock, wood grain contact paper and black paint come together to make the perfect busted out lathe and plaster wall decor.   Simply cut the wood grain contact paper into strips, layer it onto the black cardstock, add a bit of black paint for an aged look then cut them into random broken wall pieces.  I've been using mine for years and they are one of my favorite DIY Halloween projects.
