Easy {and Cheap} Halloween Ideas

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Easy {and Cheap} Halloween IdeasWoah! October is here…but there is still time to create some fun and inexpensive Halloween décor! So to help you out, I have gathered all of my super-easy Halloween projects in one place so you can get started!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Duct Tape PumpkinsHere’s a favorite of mine…my Halloween duct tape pumpkins! All you need is some seasonal duct tape and a few pumpkins from Dollar Tree and you are in business! You will find a complete tutorial here.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT Wisteria Inspired Witchy CrowsAnd while you are at Dollar Tree, pick up a few of these fun crows…perfect for my Wisteria inspired witchy crows!  You will find a link to directions for the tiny witch hats on my blog here.

Halloween Sock Pumpkins 4These cute Halloween sock pumpkins are made from $1.00 faux pumpkins from Walmart and Halloween socks from the dollar aisle at Target! Just add felt leaves and curly pipe cleaner tendrils and you have a fun little pumpkin for the kiddos! You will find the directions here.

Want to add a literary twist to your Halloween décor? Then I have just the thing for you…my raven book and candle covers…starring Edgar Allan Poe’s The Raven. You will find directions for making them plus the free graphic here.

Easy Vintage Halloween CandlesThis project combines Dollar Tree candle holders with vintage Halloween postcards to create these super-easy vintage Halloween candles! You will find the free graphics and instructions for making them here.

Jack-O-Lantern Pillow with Interchangeable FacesAnd I can’t talk about Halloween projects without showing you one of my all-time favorites…my Jack-o-lantern pillow with interchangeable faces! It uses inexpensive drop cloth, felt and burlap with a thrift store down insert. There’s even a little pocket on the back to store the face parts that are not being used! This one is sure to be a favorite with the little ones! A complete tutorial, including the graphics needed, can be found here.
