1. Skeleton Tree
Dollar store skulls are always such a bargain to get creative with. Last year I used an oversized urn to plant a tree of skulls! You can get all of the directions to make this at How to Make a Skeleton Tree. With white lights, this tree will bring a glow to your front porch this Halloween season!
2. Elegant Wreath
If you want to go with some non-traditional colors for Halloween, this might be the wreath for you. A little glitzy, a touch of dia de los muertos, the rich colors of this wreath are distinctive. See the finished wreath and the tutorial at How to Make a Halloween Wreath that is Elegant.
3. A Bevy of Birds
Have you see the Alfred Hitchcock thriller, The Birds? I have, and I know I would be a little wary of all of the crows hanging out on this front porch. The first Halloween after I moved into this house I selected birds as my muse. Check out my Halloween Front Porch.
4. Creepy Mantel Decor for Halloween
If you are looking to transform your fireplace into a Halloween tableau, you might take some ideas from my Halloween Mantel from a few years ago. There are so many themes for Halloween, you could take this in whatever direction you want. Replace my skulls and skeletons with jack-o-lanterns for example. Whatever you decide, have fun doing it and enjoy!
5. Make a Man-eater!
Get those artificial pumpkins and get busy! Delight the kids and the neighbors with this colorful fellow on your front porch! Just don’t feed him too much! Man-Eating Plant for Halloween!
6. Creepy Crow Wreath
This wreath was SO easy, and except for the cardboard I built it on, everything came from Dollar Tree! I haven’t spotted these birds at Dollar Tree yet this year, but if you can nab a flock of them, this is such an easy project! The BEWARE is just cut from a Dollar Tree bag! All of the instructions can be found at Creepy Crow Wreath.
7. A Halloween Tree
Do you know someone who decorates a tree for every holiday? I haven’t done that, but I did do a Halloween tree one year! I think I would do it more if I had more space to store all of the trees! Check out this traditional orange and black display!
8. Halloween Swag
Turn these few items into the creepiest swag to greet trick or treaters! Mr. Skeleton is all dressed for the holiday in his best! Check out the easy to replicate craft for this Halloween at Halloween Swag.
9. Easy Dollar Store Halloween Garland
Drill holes in some dollar store skulls and thread them onto some tulle for a quick, easy and economical garland. I used this Dollar Store Skull Garland indoors, but you could use it outdoors, too!
10. Halloween Wreath from a Picture Frame
Using an Ikea picture frame, I turned it into a macabre wreath for my front door. This would be a great piece to hang indoors, too! Take down some traditional artwork and replace it with this for a Halloween party! No one will expect that!
