This week, instead of just doing a regular round-up of other sites’ awesome Halloween posts, I thought I’d do something a little different. This round-up includes *most* of the Halloween posts thus far on Dollar Store Crafts! Some of these posts could be major flashbacks for our long-time readers. There’s a great mix of tutorials and posts written just for us, as well as a bunch of projects that we featured from other sites. We feature projects from Two Girls Being Crafty, Minieco, Made With Love and Glue, Dot from, Paper and String, Momma D and Da Boyz and Crafty Modern to name just a few, and even a few readers sent in great projects. So sit back, relax, and check out all the treats below!
