Halloween isn’t just for kids. Lots of adults want to make the second pandemic Halloween spooky by going all out this year when it comes to decorations.
“There were no parties last year; you couldn’t get together, ”says Karen Michela Parziale, an interior designer in Hoboken, New Jersey. “Now is a fun time, people get back together and celebrate with the family.”
More than half of consumers over 50 plan on celebrating Halloween and spend an average of $ 83, according to data from the National Retail Federation. And whether you want to create one Haunted house or just add Halloween colors to your decor. You can find many budget-friendly household items at dollar stores like 99 Cents Only Stores, Dollar General, and Dollar Tree.
“You can’t go wrong for the bargains you get,” says lifestyle expert and event planner Michelle Madison in Miami. She suggests using Dollar Shop items as a starting point to create your own Halloween style. “The more out of the box, the better.”
Keep in mind that some items in dollar stores cost more than $ 1, especially on their websites where you may need to buy in bulk for a lower price. Last month, Dollar Tree announced it would be adding some products in some locations at a price of up to $ 5.
Here are 11 ideas for creating Halloween fun with items available in dollar stores:
