  1. Love all of these tips! I really enjoy decorating for Halloween, but I can’t seem to justify spending a bunch of money on decorations that will only be up a month (at most). These all seem like a fantastic alternative. Plus they’re more personal!

    1. Hi A,
      Glad you like them! Yeah, you can get the items needed for some of the projects in the $ store. Easy peasy!
      Cheers,
      Marnie
