These witches hats were perfect for my daughter’s Halloween goblin party. I found these witches hats at Michael’s craft store and attached some glow sticks from our big Fourth Of July bash and attached them with fishing line. I always keep plenty of Command Hooks on hand, so stuck them on the ceiling of the porch and attached the Halloween luminaries. They really added to our spooky haunted display and all the party goers were very impressed, no one could have guessed it was so cheap and easy.

I saw these apple shrunken heads on Pinterest and knew my kids were going to go crazy over them. I bought the kids a cheap bag of apples at HEB grocery store and we peeled them, cut eyes and a mouth then lightly baked them. We had so much fun doing this together, we use fake fur, feathers, and moss for their hair and staples for their teeth. Move over trolls, these shrunken heads win the prize for cheap easy fun.

My son’s 3rd-grade teacher did this in her classroom so all the students got to lend a helping hand. They all drew their bats, ever so carefully and cut them out with their safety scissors. The teacher fastened them to the wall in a beautiful flying flock formation with some double-sided tape, single-sided works as well just make sure and do a neat loop on the back of the bat.

I saw this idea for DIY Halloween candlesticks on Pinterest and I knew they were perfect for the mini haunted house I made in my dining room. I got some mini plastic skulls from Michael’s craft store and used some terracotta plant saucers as stabilizing pedestals at each end. I glued all of them together and used some grey metal colored spray paint I had from painting the railing on my new deck and it gave them a very rich polished look. I arranged them on what I called Dracula’s dining table with some other Halloween decorations and lovely treats that thrilled and chilled my guests, all for under the ten dollar mark.
