Dollar Tree Ideas for Halloween

I think it's no surprise how much I enjoy visiting Dollar Tree, especially at Halloween.

I had thrifted an orange tree skirt a few years ago at Goodwill and really wanted to jazz it up for Halloween.  So, when I saw these felt characters, I knew they'd be perfect for my plain skirt.

I'm pretty excited with how it looks, but now Josie thinks I need to include presents under our Halloween tree.

Another recent addition to this year's Dollar Tree merchandise are these glow-in-the-dark skeleton arms and inflatable eyeballs (bought separately).

We've got several of these strategically placed around our very large yard spider and I think Chris is going back for even more.

I'm also pretty smitten with these Halloween ice cube trays.  Josie and I experimented with them over the weekend using lemon/lime Faygo pop and cherry juice.  Creepy and fun!  Happy thrifting!  Happy Halloween, friends!

Okay- You can keep that spider in the glass right there at your house- lol
I LOVE how much fun you have for the holidays. Nobody does it quite like your family does...and I love that your hubby gets right into it, too.
I have never seen a Halloween tree skirt before. Love it! The felt 'things' are perfect for it. xo Diana
