What Our Mini Halloween 50ft Party Looks Like

So Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. And I admit, I’m using Jayden as an excuse to relive my childhood, only like 10x’s better, lol. I really like decorating our home according to season. It just makes life at home more exciting! I had the opportunity to shop Kmart’s Totally Ghoul selection using Kmart’s 50ft Party and Dawn’s Kmart Halloween Party Bluprint as inspiration.


Halloween Shopping List

Plush Pirate Mickey Treat Bowl
Assorted Candy
3 Hanging Heads
20pk Bats
4pk Spiders
Command Hooks
Freaky Fabric
Pumpkin Lights
Purple Icicle Lights (couldn’t figure out what to do with them)


With a budget of $100, I was able to get everything on my Halloween Shopping List, with enough left over to buy this super cute sorceress costume (which, by the way fits super nice)!

So. How did I incorporate my Kmart finds in our home?


Well, I decorated our front door using the freaky fabric, spiders, bats, and some glow in the dark skeletons I had on hand. I attached the fabric to the door using the Command Hooks and carefully glued the spiders, bats, and skeletons on to the fabric with tacky and hot glue. It was so much fun!


Using the hanging heads and some of the bats, I decorated our Living Room banister which compliment the garland and lights I already had on hand. *makes witch face*


I had enough freaky fabric left over to cover a bench in our entry way. I glued some leaves that I already had to the fabric to compliment our metal tree and jackolantern arrangement. Assorted candies were added to our mini treat buckets to complete the look, but of course we can’t leave them in there! Candy lovin’ toddler on the prowl!


Our plush Mickey went on top of the credenza. It currently houses our cellphones. I strung the pumpkin lights across the credenza. It’s as close as we’re getting to a decorated mantel, lol. Ignore the fingerprints on the photo frame… it is touch screen.

Ahh, that was so invigorating.

    I don’t decorate much for Halloween – just enough so that the neighborhood kids know that this house gives out candy lol. But to be honest, your post kind of inspired me and I might borrow your credenza ideas.

    With small kids, I don’t decorate with anything that is too scary.  I tend to use cutesy decorations like scarecrows and pumpkins.  I also have a lot of handmade decorations that I have made through the years. 

    I love that Mickey Mouse that you are using to store your cell phones.  Too cute!

    I miss having a Kmart close by. Our local store closed down about five years ago and the nearest store is about a 40 minute drive. I love your staircase with the orange light and I love the way you made a web out of fabric to hang spiders and bats.

    I love the way you used the decorations. Very creative work! I want to decorate too but I have to move next month, so no decor here):

      Go right ahead! If your door gets a lot of sunlight, a few pieces may melt off, but just glue and replace!

    Looks good! It kinda bothers me that stores are setting up for Christmas before October even begins. Halloween seems to be less and less popular.

      Thanks! I know what you mean. Kmart had all their Christmas stuff out right next to the Halloween goods. I was so tempted to explore, lol.

    Love the decorations. I’m really into decorating for Halloween so it’s good to know good deals exist so I don’t have to break the bank too much. Love your creativity and budgeting methods! 🙂

    It looks great! I love those mini treat buckets.

    I too am reliving my Halloween memories with Soren.  I’m sure we’ll be adding to the decor each year, especially picking up things after the holiday on clearance.

      Thanks! The treat buckets were from Pottery Barn Kids. I can’t wait to grab a few things post Halloween!
