How can I decorate my house for Halloween on a budget?

If you’re like us you are always looking for ways to stretch your budget and it’s not different when we’re looking for easy ways to decorate our homes for Halloween.

First off, always shop your home.

Walk around your home and see if you have items you can repurpose or use as Halloween decorations this year.

For instance, a black scarf might be just the ticket for layering in decor on a table.

Or maybe a little paint can make an old piece of seasonal decor new again.

Clearly we love vintage pieces and love that look in our Halloween decorations as well.

Try adding vintage candlesticks or mirrors to your Halloween decor.

They can certainly add just the right touch.

Definitely don’t forget to shop thrift stores.

Not only will you find modern Halloween decor that’s been donated, but repurposing vintage items can really elevate your Halloween decorating.

While thrifting look for candlesticks, old frames, artificial pumpkins, fabric, old dolls and vintage art.

And don’t forget you can come up with some pretty creative costumes while thrifting too!
