Halloween is a great time to show off your artsy side, and crafty folks know the place to go when they want some cheap stuff to upcycle/repurpose- the Dollar Store.
Stuff that costs around a buck can be made to look like a million bucks with a little paint, some embellishment and crafty vision, like these Dollar Store pumpkins Hip2Save's Collin Morgan turned into eye-catching centerpieces.
Dollar Stores are full of crappy looking Halloween decorations dying for a makeover and your crafty hands can give them a second life, a better life as a colorful Day Of The Dead inspired sugar skull.
Or you could simply spray paint a Dollar Store skull white and cut the top off, turning it into a bare bones but cool looking skull vase.
And if you're lucky enough to have a fancy Dollar Store near you that carries those cute little Christmas houses they can be quite craftily turned into a spooky Halloween village you'll want to leave out all year long!
