DIY Dollar Tree skull lanterns
I usually skip halloween decorations in my home. It is not that I don’t love halloween, I just usually do a generic fall decor that I can keep up until Thanksgiving. I’m all about easy decorating.
But for some reason this fall I decided I needed to add a little bit of spooky. I didn’t want to get too crazy so I decided to just decorate the porch so I wouldn’t spend an arm and a leg.
Anyways, I got a lot of my decor at Dollar Tree and while I was there I saw these awesome skulls. This got me thinking. I knew I had some lanterns at home that it would fit in. How cool would that be?
At home, I cut the bottoms off of the skulls so that my LED candles could shine through. Then I searched the garage (for far too long.) to find these perfect lanterns. I believe these are from the Target Dollar Spot a few years ago for the 4th of July, but I could be wrong. Anyways, I cleaned them up and then added my skulls and candles.
I love how these make a spooky centerpiece and I only spend $3 on the whole thing. It pays to think about what you have around the house before you start decorating. Yes, the lanterns have non-spooky stars in them, but who even cares, right?
