When does dollar tree put out halloween decorations?
My Dollar Tree started putting out Halloween decor the last week of July! Yep, you read that right! It was just two small sections for about a month. I have 3 Dollar Trees near me that I kind of circulate between and they all put out the larger/complete selection of Halloween stuff though the first week of September.
Dollar Tree Halloween 2020 Ideas:
Loved these spooky little ghosts I made using only Dollar Tree supplies! They cost about $3 to make and are so adorable!

I'm so obsessed with this creepy candy bowl or spooky vase! It can be used for Halloween or repurposed for anytime of the year by leaving the top color as it is, or topping with a different color of spray paint! Your house plants will love it!
I'm so obsessed with this DIY Halloween Ornament Wreath!! It's the first wreath I ever made and I'm so impressed with how easy it was and how it came out! I used only supplies from the Dollar Tree and it cost $8!

Would you believe me if I said that this cost about $5 to make ?!? And that hand, was actually just a skeleton hand! YEP! This has quickly become one of my favorite Halloween decor DIYs I've ever done! You can put it at an entryway for your keys, lay our some candy bars, or top it with some graveyard inspired cupcakes!

IT'S THE ADDAMS FAMILY! Throwing it back with this Dollar Tree Halloween DIY!! Both my daughter and I love having Cousin Itt around. I share a few different ways you can customize this DIY in the post. This is an item I'd pick up EARLY in the season as the grass hula skirts tend to go away in the later months.
and don't @ me because my Cousin It doesn't have sunglasses! My toddler keeps taking them off and his hat off, so this is what I'm working with LOL

Watch the tutorial for the paper witch hats here:
Okay you all loved the DIY paper bats last year that I knew I wanted something just as simple and fun! Enter DIY paper witch hats! I love these because you can hang them from doorways or your ceiling using a little sticky tack OR you can just place them on a table or mantle as decor. Either way it's super easy!
- Black poster paper
- Hot glue
- White thread
- Halloween tubing from the Dollar Tree
Step 1: Forming the top of your witch hat
You'll cut your black paster board into semi-circles. Then just round it out until it forms a cone. Glueing the edge down.
Step 2: Cutting the base
Next you'll cut a circle that about an 2 inches wider in diameter than the top of the witch hat you just made. To do this, I just placed my cone on top of the black poster paper, and did a rough sketch of how wide I wanted my brim.
Once you cut the circle out, cut the middle out. Keeping a fairly wide brim still. Essentially creating the letter O.
Step 3: Attaching your top and bottom
Slide your base over the top of your cone. It should get stuck and not fall to the bottom. Your cone probably has some rough edges, that's okay. All your going to do is note how much of the cone is beneath the base (ideally about a half an inch or less). Then you'll just cut about a half of an inch slits all around the cones bottom.
Fold the slit up so they sit flush on the table and add a drop of hot glue to each of them. Now just slide the hat base back over the top of the cone. This time is should sit flush on the table and on top of the slits with glue. Press firmly so the glue secures.
Step 4: Ribbon
Add a little of the Halloween tubing from the Dollar tree by going around the brim where the top of the hat meets the base with some hot glue. Then just afix your tubing. Do this gently – we want it to keep the tube form and not get flushed flat. Also the tubing is holey, so be careful of your fingers. You can get finger covers at the Dollar Tree if you're nervous.
Step 5: Displaying
You can put these on a table or mantle and display flat.
Or you can hang them from doorways or ceilings for a more magical feel (what I did). To do this, just get a piece of sewing thread and figure out how long you want your hat to hang. Add a small dot of glue to the tip of your hat and afix the sewing string. Then just get some sticky tack or tape and attach it to your ceiling, doorway, or wherever you want it to hang from!
