I only spent $5.00 +tax using Halloween items from Dollar Tree to make this Creepy Halloween Owl Decoration.

So cheap and I still have some of the items left to make more creepy Halloween decorations, what a deal!


Since I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted to make, I purchased items from Dollar Tree that sparked my interest.  I had an idea in my head, but I wasn’t sure if it would work, so I bought extra items.  Obviously I spent more than $5.00, but the finished Owl Decoration only cost $5.00 with leftover materials!

I figured with all of these wonderful things, I would be able to come up with some original Halloween decoration.

I was right and I love the results, so much that I would love to make duplicates!

I ended up not using all of the items, but now I still have them to make more wonderful decorations.

I started with my original idea I had in my head, not sure if it would work out, but it worked out better than I thought!  I started with the picture frame.  I thought I would end up having to paint a picture frame, but the frame I got from Dollar Tree ended up not needing any alterations, it fit my creepy theme just fine.

I took the backing out of the frame and lined it with a piece of dark scrapbook paper.  I then covered it with the light tan Creepy Cloth.  I used it because it reminded me of wrapping for a mummy.

I hot glued it onto the back in a few spots just to hold it in place before putting it back in the frame.

Next, the part I wasn’t sure about it working.  I love the Skeleton Hand I got from the Dollar Tree and really wanted to use it as a shelf, maybe for a candle or something.  Would hot gluing it to the cloth and paper on the frame really work?  Luckily, it did…so happy!

I wanted the hand to look like it was coming out of the frame, not just hot glued on, so I cut strips of the Creepy Cloth and wrapped them around the wrist, just like it was wrapping from a mummy.  I also wrapped some of the cloth around the fingers so it looked like a mummy coming unwrapped.

Adding Dollar Tree Spider Webbing to any project will definitely help with the creepy factor!

I added on a few of the spiders and put the creepy little black owl on the hand and hung up on my wall!  I love that the owl’s eyes light up!

Now, I just have to get more frames and Skeleton Hands, because look how awesome this project looks with the Skull and battery operated candle.  I have plenty of Creepy Cloth leftover to make more and tons of Spider Webbing.

The Skull’s eyes transition between colors, but the red is the creepiest!
