We are always crafting something. When I can make something that doesn't cost a fortune and serves a purpose, I am even more happy to be crafting. That is one of the reasons I love this Googly Eye Vase. It is the perfect dollar store Halloween craft. The supplies are inexpensive and it comes out looking so cute, you will want to use it as part of your DIY Halloween decor every year. You will not believe how easy this Halloween vase is to make. It is a great craft for adults or kids to do for Halloween.
Whether you pick up your supplies at the craft store, the dollar store or online, you will love that this Halloween craft will not cost a fortune to make. I was able to pick up all of the supplies from my local dollar store, including the paint and the hot glue sticks. If your dollar store doesn't have everything you need, you can easily supplement what you are missing from Walmart or your local craft store. You can add in any color flowers. I love how the bright colors in these flowers pop against the black vase, but the black roses with the red tips look amazing too. Add a bit more of a creepy feel.
