7 Ways to Display Dollar Tree Bats

Halloween Decor on a Budget

If your dogs are anything like mine Halloween Decorations make them upset or they freak out when you bring something with those glowing eyes into your house. Davinia and Indiana also get upset at decorations they pass while on the street if they have those glowing eyes or they see a “ghost” floating in a tree. On a scale of 1 – 10 of Holidays dogs enjoy Halloween is probably so far down the list.

I still want to get in the spirit of the Holiday but don’t think making the dogs upset over it is necessary so I set out to find ideas that would help get us into the spirit while at the same time get ignored by the dogs.

I also wanted to figure out how to do Halloween Decor on a Budget because lets face it everything either gets throw away or was so much money you feel like you need to use it every yer for the next 10 years.

If you have a Dollar Tree nearby, then you have all you need for creating some fun décor with their die cut bats! These are sold in their Halloween décor area in packs on ten, and you will be amazed at all of the places you can stick them.

Halloween Decor on a Budget

Take a look below at 7 ways we found they could be used to create Halloween Decor on a Budget both inside and out!

1. Kitchen Cabinets – Apply a piece of tape and give your kitchen cabinets a howling new look.

2. Picture frames. Stick a bat or two right on the corners of your picture frames and turn them frightful! You can even frame the bats themselves if you wish.

3. Bathroom Mirrors. Make mirrors extra spooky when you add a bat or two. No one ever decorates their bathroom for Halloween, so be the first!

4. Hallway Décor We stuck a bat on this white metal hallway décor piece for an unexpected pop of Halloween charm.

5. Make a simple jar décor piece.

Fill a glass jar with glowing twinkle lights (also available at dollar tree) and add a bat to the front. Nothing like some cheap Halloween décor that looks fantastic! This one might prove to be too much for your dog but if you put it somewhere and don’t make a fuss over it you likely will be able to get away with it.

6. In a window. Add a family of bats or a solo flier to your window panes. Not only will you be able to enjoy them, but passerby’s will be able to as well.
