I love all the Halloween ideas and love the Dollar Tree for crafts. I probably make two trips a week to Dollar Tree for craft items. Thank you for all your ideas.

Girl same! I feel like they really upped their game this year too! Best year ever for fun Halloween party stuff, wreath making supplies, the vintage Halloween signs…I’m finding something new to make a Halloween craft with every week. It’s a bummer about the $1.25 but most of it is a great deal still when you make comparisons with the big box craft stores. Especially if you just need a small amount of something (like ribbon) for a project. Glad you enjoyed the post!
