10 Dollar Tree DIY Projects for Halloween

So, here we go again folks, I am sitting here writing this post as I await the damage from Hurricane Irma who is wreaking havoc across the coast of Florida right now as we speak. Hopefully, my craft shed doesn’t take as much damage as Hurricane Matthew brought upon us last year, but it seems that we may see similar damage between both storms. I’m just praying that our home takes no significant damage. While prepping for the hurricane, I decided to get a jump start on October goodies by writing a post on Halloween Dollar Tree DIY.

If you are like me, you love to decorate for the holidays, but it can be a little tight on the wallet. If you shop frugally, or even a little smart, you can easily decorate your home for every holiday in the fall with a little creativity and prep. When it comes to Dollar Tree DIYs, you have to start a little ahead of time, and while I was shopping for necessities, I realized that Dollar Tree was already placing their Halloween stuff on the shelves, which gave me the idea for this post. So here goes nothing! Listed below are 10 of the most fun Halloween Dollar Tree DIY projects to add a little fall flare to your home. 

Some of the ideas listed below do not have links. This was because I couldn't find them or was only an image search. If you are the original owner of one of these photos, please comment below and I will add your blog or website for additional instructions. I ALWAYS give credit where it is due if I have not tried or created it myself. 

Dollar Tree has plenty of fake bones you can buy. If you don't know what to do with them, then try hanging them as an eerie mobile to creep out guests. 

This is such a simple Dollar Tree DIY project, but can really add a nice touch to your home. Painted in the right colors, and with the right decor, these candy jars could stay out year long with goodies in them. 

I don't seem to have the knack for knowing what things look coolish in glass ware projects, but I would love to have something like this for my home. Again, after buying the glassware, you could easily change this out for every season. You can find the instructions for how to make this fun Halloween decor here at The Pin Junkie

This was one of my favorite Halloween decor ideas, mostly because I like anything anatomical related, and 2nd because I would leave this out year round if it were painted in a different color. This is so simple to make, it will definitely be on my To Do list for Dollar Tree DIY projects this Halloween. You can find the instructions on how to make it here at Perisalou

This was my 2nd favorite project on the list, and I'm sure this goes without saying, that it's because of the glitter. I am in love with these, and also something I would leave out year round just because they are too cool to only be out for a few days a year. You can find the instructions here at Caps Creations

You have got to give it to Martha Stewart, she really knows what she is doing when it comes to awesome DIY projects, and these apothecary jars are no different. All you need is some paint to really turn boring jars into something fun to decorate with during Halloween. You can find Martha Stewart's directions here at

I think this is such a cute idea for welcoming guests into your home during the fall. You could even make sure it lights up at night by adding some sort of solar light on the inside which would make it glow. I'm not sure I would paint the pumpkins black, there's something wrong about that to me, but this is for sure a really neat project.

Now this project is actually for sale on a Halloween website, but you could easily get most of the supplies from the Dollar Tree to make this around Halloween. You could use hoops to do the tiers and there are fake chain pieces that you could string in between each level. If you are willing to put in the effort, this would be really neat to hang outside or in a dining room.

I really liked these a lot. Not only are these skulls, but they decided that they wanted to dress up for the Halloween festivities as well. This would be adorable as decor. I am thinking about making these to set up in my office at work, I'm pretty excited about this potential project for the fall. 

This is such a cool project, and honestly this woman has some amazing creativity. I love using other bloggers as inspiration because there really are some talented people on the internet. These will take a little finesse in order to get the image on the glass, but the finished product is amazing. You can find the instructions on how to make these here at Flamingo Toes

So there you have it. What did you think about these projects? I'm really excited to try a few of these for Halloween decorating. Which project was your favorite? Tell me below. 

Have a blessed day!
