Halloween Sugar Skull Crafts- Dollar Tree hacks

Cheap Halloween crafts dollar tree hacks #halloween #sugarskulls #dayofthedead #halloweendecorI know, I know- It’s August and I am posting Halloween, but If you’re a crafter you know every store is full of Halloween crafts and décor already. I have come across some things that I knew I could make cheaper and have found some things that are a great deal. SO I needed to share. I was at Jo-Ann Fabrics the other day admiring all their Halloween décor and came across these sugar skull candles. They were selling them for $6.99 sugar skull Very cute, but I remember coming across these candles at Dollar Tree.

They were not on sale but even if they were 50% off the price is still crazy. Halloween craftsI drink wine so I have wine bottles already able to use, but even if you don’t drink wine find a friend that does. You can also ask restaurants that serve wine if you can recycle their bottles for them. wine bottlesBuy a can of spray paint. I always buy mine at Wal-Mart for less than $4.00.  I wanted to spray my bottle with a gloss black instead of chalkboard.  The best tip for spray painting is to give yourself enough space to avoid paint runs. sugar skull crafts2

Once dried I added one of my sugar skulls.

For my candle, all I did was add the other sticker.

I also found this pumpkin at Dollar tree that I spray painted.

Halloween Dollar Tree Craft

EKK! I know, I know, Halloween in August boooo! I will say I love Halloween and love seeing stores get their new Halloween merchandise in! The reason I am posting this now is because on my last trip to Dollar Tree I came across these little porcelain haunted houses. They are so cute! They have a whole collection from lighthouses to graveyards to zombies! I didn’t go crazy and buy all of them just yet, but I hope to add to my collection! So yes in August Dollar Tree has these cute little haunted houses. In case you wanted them – go now and snag them up!

Here is how they come, they’re cute the way they are but I thought they would look better painted with some black acrylic gloss paint. Plus they will match my Halloween Décor better.

I thought about spraying them with black glitter also, but I loved how they looked! Maybe when I add to my collection I will do some with glitter! If you guys love Halloween – so far I have seen the most Halloween Merchandise at Ac Moore. Hobby Lobby has some and JoAnn’s had very little.
