Dollar store hack: 7 ways to upcycle Halloween greeting cards
I’m always up for a good Dollar store hack, so when I saw these adorable Halloween greeting cards, I took matters into my own hands. Here’s seven ways to upcycle these cute cards to make your house even spookier. Check it out.
I don’t typically mail out Halloween greeting cards to people, but when I saw these, I thought, “Man, I could make some cute decorations out of these.” And that’s exactly what I did. There’s so many things you can do with them. So let’s get started!
Dollar store hack#1: On the mirror
Sometimes my kids like to buy those Halloween window clings. They are super cute they only last one or two seasons and then they are toast. Instead, I cut off the back of the greeting card and taped them onto the mirror in our kitchen. It turned out super cute. You could tape them to the bathroom mirror as well.
Hack #2: On the chandelier
Just cut the backs off the greeting cards and tape them together. Then, tape a string to the top of each one and tape it to your chandelier. Since these cards are so cute, it didn’t take much effort to make this into a really cute decoration.
Hack #3: On the window
Using the same back-to-back cards that you used on the chandelier, you could also tape them to the window. That way you can see them from inside and outside.
Hack #4: In a frame
These Halloween greeting cards are so cute, you could put them in a frame. Place the framed masterpiece on display on a shelf or use them as centerpieces for your next Halloween dinner party. Super easy and inexpensive.
Hack #5: On the front door
Sometimes the back of the front door doesn’t get much attention. Tape your upcycled greeting cards on the front door to add a little bit of Halloween spirit to your home.
Hack #6: On the railing
I always like to make my railing festive during Halloween and Christmas. Instead of purchasing some expensive decor, these upcycled Halloween greeting cards will do the trick.
Hack #7: As a hanging mobile
With your greeting card covers taped back-to-back, tape them to some twine and hang it from the ceiling or stairwell.
Bonus Hack: Craft it up
I had a bunch of left over backs to the greeting cards. So, for my final Dollar store hack, I cut out the cute Halloween images that we on each of them. My son happily took each one and design his own Halloween poster that he hung in his room.
