Celebrate the spirit of the holiday with these 50 Dollar Tree Halloween crafts! Get tutorials for unique decor and more on a budget. These ideas are perfect for beginners.
I will absolutely admit that I look forward to Halloween crafts starting on November 1st of the prior year. Yep, the day that Halloween is over . . . I’m already thinking about next year.
What do I love about All Hallows Eve? So many things, including but not limited to black glitter, glow in the dark, candy, ghosts, sparkling lights, and costumes. It’s such a perfect time to experiment and get creative with colors and surfaces you might not normally use!
Halloween Dollar Store Craft Supplies
I shop at a variety of stores during the holiday season, but one place that I always visit is Dollar Tree. If you haven’t visited during fall and Halloween, you’re missing out. There is an AMAZING amount of stuff now. Here’s a sampling:
- Carvable foam pumpkins
- Mason jars
- Ceramic and foam skull heads
- Clay pots
- Glass vases
- Canvas shoes and other fashion items
- Witch hat metal wreath form
- Pool noodles (you can turn them into wreath forms!)
- Foam wreath forms
- Orange, black, and purple deco mesh
- Mesh tubing
- Ribbon rolls
- Pumpkin picks
- MDF plaques
- Halloween monster icons
- Hanging wood shapes
- Galvanized ghosts and pumpkins
- Die cut boxes
- Craft paint
- Halloween stickers
- Fabric cuts
- Bone vase filler
- Glitter spiders
- Bat clips
- Gemstone stickers
- Plastic bugs
- Washi tape
- Googly eyes
There’s only one thing that bothers me about Dollar Tree Halloween crafts and that is that the stores sell out of stuff quickly! So if you’re planning on trying some projects this year (or any year), I highly recommend getting there as quickly as possible and getting your surfaces.
Once you do that, you’ll be ready to roll! Check out the 50 project ideas below.
