To add to my growing collection of Halloween posts, I'd like to share with you a few budget-friendly ways that I've decorated my kitchen and entryway this year.
Below, you'll see the items that sit atop a shelf in my entryway.
The total cost of all of the items on the shelf:
Picture Frame: $5
Dragon Castle: Free (It was a gift.)
Spider Tombstone: $1
Witch Hat: $1
Skeleton Head: $1
The lamp is an old lamp I had lying around--I plan on moving it or changing out the lampshade, just to add to the Halloween effect. Zebra stripes? Not scary.
Here are a few of the decorations on my kitchen counter.
There is a wooden sign that reads, "Cauldron Cakes, Putrid Pudding, Apple Spider, Ice Scream." On the right, there is a black wax warmer, and to the left is a kitchen towel with spiders and spiderwebs.
The wax warmer is my favorite, and only cost $3 at Dollar General. I also purchased a $1 pack of "Spice" wax melts.
The spider kitchen towel was $1 at Dollar Tree, along with the matching oven mit:
They're perfect for Halloween, but not so scary that they frighten the children.
Finally, you'll see my "Trick or Treat" sign and a pumpkin pie candle. They were purchased at Walmart and Dollar General, respectively. The sign was $3 and the candle was $1.
In total, I've spent $19 on decorating my kitchen for Halloween.
And that's not scary at all.
