Do you ever just drive around your neighborhood during spooky season and think, I wish my house looked like that, with amazing Halloween decorations.

Halloween decorations may be easier than you think.   You don't have to go and drop $300 on one Halloween decoration.  That $300 could decorate your whole yard.

Halloween decorations can be affordable   One of the best places to go to save money on Halloween decorations is Dollar Tree because you can buy a lot of Halloween things and then transform them into something better.

Puking Skeleton

You may be wanting the popular puking skeleton. It looks fairly easy to make, however the materials to make it happen may be somewhat costly.

Skeleton in a Cage

This is fairly simple to make, you'll need two round laundry baskets, ring clips, a small skeleton, a fake chain, and paint.
