Halloween is coming our way fast, and if you still haven’t prepared your decorations—now’s the time! The great thing about this spooky holiday is that you can make pretty amazing decorations all on your own—and these four tips will help you save a lot of money along the way.
Keep it Budget-Friendly
Before embarking on your spooky Halloween journey, set a budget and stick to it. Use things that you already have or shop at thrift stores to keep your DIY project on the cheaper side. There’s not much point in putting a lot of time and energy into something that will cost you much more than decorations you can buy at any store this holiday season.
Don’t Wait Up
DIY projects take time, especially when you’re a busy parent with a lot on your plate, so don’t wait until the very last minute to get things started. It’s also a good idea to focus on making decorations that aren’t too elaborate and won’t take up too much of your free time.
Make it a Family Affair
It will take less time to finish up your spooky decorations if you’re not doing it all on your own. Make your next DIY Halloween project a family affair and stick to letting your kids focus on age-appropriate tasks while handling the heavy lifting on your own.
