Dollar Store Halloween Decor

Halloween is fun, but not into creepy or gory at all! Scary movies...ah no! Not for me either! A touch of Halloween around the house is fun though. Our decor is minimal and more fall, cutesy, kid friendly, except for this new one.

I've kinda had a thing for skulls for quite some time now and really starting to like crows. (My dark side lol!) This is the extent of our "scary" decor.


All items are from the Dollar Tree, including a vase, cool crow, bag of skulls and moss.


Throw in a bit of hot glue and you have yourself a cool new Halloween decoration! Glue moss to rim of vase, glue on the crow, glue on the skull, then drop all other skulls into the vase. All done!

Not bad eh? I can't tell if it's just a crow with a really cool skull collection or if that crow has a nest with skulls for eggs. Either way I think it's cool! How about you?

  3. I have a vase that looks very similar! Pottery Barn does the best Halloween decorations and lucky for us we can recreate them for a fraction of the cost!!!
