DIY Dollar Tree $6 Halloween Wreath

INSIDE: How to make a super cheap Halloween door wreath that cost $6 using Halloween supplies from Dollar Tree.

Eery and dreary Halloween decor is just not my game. My kids, at their young ages, already know that I get freaked at their large rubber spiders and bats. Seriously, do they need to make these things so realistic looking?!

So while I am no fan of spooky Halloween fun, I can totally handle cute spiders, friendly bats and googly eyeballs any day. Bring it on [adorable] ghouls!!

There was absolutely no fear when I put together this $6 Halloween wreath. Check out my ghoulish frugal fun…

These wreath-making items were purchased at my local Dollar Tree. The hardest part was getting the spooky supplies back from my kids!

Remember how I said my kids have my number when it comes to scary spiders and hairy bugs? My 5-year old thought it would be just hilarious one morning to place a very real-looking spider on the steering wheel. As this [frazzled] mom made her way down the driveway, probably late to be somewhere, the plastic spider fell between my legs. I never knew this 30-something body could scream, throw the car into park and jump out of the door as fast as this freaked out mom did!

Step #5:
Use a small section of the ribbon to form a loop and secure it with a tie (I used a grocery store twist tie). Glue (or tape) this onto the back of the tray in order to hang it.

    This is really cute, I am personally terrified of spiders, I wouldn’t be able to sleep with them horrible looking fake things in the house. My decor like yours is fun without being too scary, I agree that it is especially important when you have little ones around.
