Halloween Decorations Under $5 To Spook Up Your Home On A Budget

Share

When it comes to Halloween decorations, going all out to decorate every square inch of the house is just so much fun. But decorating the porch, the yard, the kitchen, and yes, even the bathrooms, can get pricey. Luckily, there are plenty of Halloween decorations under $5 so you can "boo"-tify your home without breaking the bank.

I honestly can't imagine celebrating Halloween without an array of orange and black and ghosts galore. Hanging ghoulish and glowing lanterns from the trees, lining the driveway with pumpkin-shaped yard stakes, and stringing fake spiderwebs across the entryway always marks the official beginning of spooky season for my family, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Although I've amassed a plethora of decorations throughout the years, I still love to buy fun new Halloween swag, but doing so without spending an arm and a leg is sometimes more of a trick than a treat.

Whether you want your decorative style to be ghoulishly gory or creepy cute, this list has you covered. From miniature skeletons and pumpkin lights to paper banners and window decals, every item on this list costs less than $5 and will transform your home into the perfect Halloween haunt.
