I’ll admit it – I love dollar stores and I definitely have my favorites! They are the perfect source for cheap and easy crafty inspiration!
I especially love them during the holidays! There is some really great stuff just waiting to be transformed! This year, my very favorite dollar store has some really awesome Halloween items. I picked up a few and started making some cute decorations for our upcoming Halloween shindig…
- Carveable pumpkin
- Glass candle holder
- Spray paint
- Glitter and glue
I started by spray painting the pumpkin with a satin black spray paint. Once it was dry, I used my glue to draw swirlies on the pumpkin, and then applied the iridescent glitter.
While the glitter was drying, I spray painted the candle holder with a matte aluminum paint.
When the candle holder was dry, I applied a bead of glue along the top and positioned the pumpkin on it.
I found this really cute ribbon at the hobby store (for $1.00) and tied a bow, then glued it on the top.
Voila! This project cost me a whopping $3.00 and was completed in an afternoon… I have a couple more to make and will share pictures later! Stop by again as I will be posting more fab Halloween decorations over the next few weeks!
