I love to do my Halloween decorating with inexpensive, fun items from the Dollar Store or Dollar Tree.halloween decorating, dollar store items, halloween

My grandchildren love to see Halloween decorations and I love to do the decorating.  I am lucky enough to have a large room in my basement that is usually empty except when I am having a party.  This room has stone walls, which is a little strange, but we did not build this house.  This room is perfect for Halloween  decorating and to have parties in.

I love to buy decorating items at The Dollar Tree.  I think everyone has one of these nearby and if you have not been there, check it out. I try to go early while they have a great selection.

One of my little granddaughters came for a visit after school last week, so I decided it was a perfect day to decorate.

Each year when I do the Halloween decorating, the grandchildren  ask me to take some of the decorations home.  That is another advantage of buying your items at the Dollar Tree.  I usually have a few things left they didn’t take, so the next year I just add more.

The Dollar Store or Dollar Tree also have many cute Halloween decorating items for outside but I have to let the little grandsons handle that when they come to visit. 

Now that the party room is decorated, it is time to start on cookie baking, craft making, and other fun things that the children enjoy this time of year.

  1. I love Dollar Tree too! It’s like a treasure hunt in there because everything is so well designed! If you mix their things in with more expensive gift shop items, no one knows the difference!
    Your little Madelynn is just adorable and she must really feel like she’s “all that” when she gets to be in charge of decorating and redecorating!

  2. What fun! I love the Dollar Tree, too. Any good Grandma would! One of the things I love about Dollar Tree is that when you don’t have the space to store all those decorations for the next year it doesn’t matter because you didn’t spend much! Love your room! LOVE the photo of you in your hat!

    1. You are so right. I throw things away sometimes if I am too tired to clean or pack things up. So inexpensive it is easier to buy new.
