Being strapped for cash when the holidays are just around the corner can be a scary experience and let’s face it, the price tag on Halloween costumes can be scarier than the outfits themselves. But if you’re trying to throw a “spooktacular” Halloween bash for you and your family this year, know that you don’t have to search for a “title loan near me” to do it. There are plenty of fun and creative ways to give your home a spooky makeover that are cheap and just as fun as what’s sold in stores. Here are some quick tips and tricks that’ll make this Halloween a treat for everyone.
This one’s a no-brainer. You can find lots of DIY craft materials and other things at your local arts and crafts store for cheap and find a caldron full of fast and easy DIY decor ideas online with just a few clicks. You might even find some things laying around the house that could quickly turn spooky with some googly eyes.
Licensed costumes are pricey and chances are, you’ll only wear them once. So why not get creative and make your own? You don’t have to be a crafty person to put together a clever costume that’s unique to you. A trip to your local thrift store could help you put together your new Halloween getup for just a few dollars. You might even have something in your closet already that you could use to piece together a fun outfit.
Choosing a theme for your Halloween party will help you stay on track with your décor ideas and keep things simple. A spider theme is always a creepy, but fun choice. You can buy fake web and plastic spiders for cheap and deck out your house to look like spider city. By sticking with this theme, you won’t be tempted to go all out with the pumpkins, mummies, vampires, and ghosts. By sticking with one theme, you’ll save a lot of money.
Getting your friends and family involved is probably the smartest and easiest way to throw a great party without throwing away all your cash in the process. Rather than buying all the chips, dips and drinks yourself, invite everybody to bring what they want to snack on and they’ll be enough for everyone. It’s a simple and effective trick that treats everyone at the party. You could even ask them to bring their own pumpkin and have a pumpkin carving contest. You’d be surprised to find out how much help you can get when you simply ask for it.
So now that you have a skeleton of an idea, take it and run with it. Use your imagination and see what you can come up with for a thriller Halloween party. One last thing, it’s always a great idea to begin preparing for next year. After Halloween is over, all the candy, costumes, décor and more go on sale immediately, so don’t be afraid to stock up. You’ll thank yourself next Halloween.
