Thrifty Tuesdays: Budget Halloween Decor

This urn was 50 cents at a garage sale.  I saw potential behind the dirt stains and yellowed exterior.  After a quick wash and a few coats of pearlescent acrylic paint, it was almost brand new.  (Unfortunately, in my excitement I forgot to take a before picture!)

The candlesticks were purchased at a local thrift store for $3 each.  The glittery candles were purchased at Jo-Ann Fabric & Crafts for 60% off (three candles for $2).  The pumpkin wands and mask were made with craft materials that I already owned.  I cut out a round piece of cardboard to fit into the urn so just the top could be filled with candy corn and marshmallow ghost peeps.

This is my Halloween centerpiece for about $10 (candy included).  I love holiday decorating when I find things at discounted prices!  Happy Thrifting :)

Update:  Here is the urn with added candy skewers!

I will be posting this on:
