Cheap Halloween Decorations: A Guide
If you're looking for cheap Halloween directions, you're in the right place – the internet is an absolute treasure trove of bargains, and Halloween goods are no exception. Halloween is a very popular holiday, especially in the US, and many people like to celebrate in style, with parties, fancy dress, treats and of course Halloween decorations. All of this can cost a lot of money, but it doesn't have to. This article discusses some ideas for cheap Halloween decorations that will look great without breaking the bank.
Cheap Halloween Decorating Ideas
If you want to buy Halloween decorations, you don't have to spend a lot to find some really effective pieces. Balloons, string lights, cut outs, window stickers, figures (witches, skeletons etc), door hangings, rubber spiders and other critters, streamers and banners can all be bought very cheaply. You can often save more money by purchasing Halloween supplies in bulk – if you don't need everything straight away, you could store it for next year, or try buying with a friend and sharing the cost. It's not just about physical 'props' either – lighting and sound go a long way towards creating a spooky atmosphere, and you can pick up coloured light bulbs very cheaply, as well as 'Halloween sounds' CDs which feature an assortment of ghostly moans, screams and eerie music.
Making Your Own Budget Halloween Decorations
If you really want to save money, there's no better way to do so than making your own Halloween decorations. This is also a great way to have fun doing something creative, and if you have kids they'll probably enjoy making their own too. Perhaps the most obvious type of DIY decoration is the pumpkin, which can be carved, painted or embellished – you could make a large decorative pumpkin centerpiece, and/or decorate several smaller pumpkins and arrange them in clusters around your home or yard (see more pumpkin decorating ideas). Supplies for making your own Halloween decorations can be bought cheaply, or you could also make decorative items from household materials like tissues, black garbage bags, sheets, newspaper (papier mache) etc. You can find lots of ideas for making your own decorations online, and there are some great books on the topic on Amazon too.
