I absolutely love Halloween. It’s my favorite holiday and my kids are in Halloween outfits from September through the big day.

Let’s check out all the good Halloween items at Dollar Tree!

1. Candy

Let’s kick off the list with the most quintessential Halloween item — candy! The dollar store has a huge selection of Halloween candy.

Keep an eye on the bag quantity though! Depending on the candy, the price isn’t always a savings over other stores because of the smaller size.

2. Glow sticks

Listen, glow sticks are my #1 favorite Dollar Tree Halloween hack. First, I get glow sticks to give out instead of candy. They’re allergy-friendly and accessible for all kids, and they’re way cheaper than candy!

Second, I put glow stick bracelets and necklaces on my kids for trick-or-treating so they’re more visible. I also do this for night events around Halloween like our Zoo Boo.

TIP: Our Dollar Tree had the exact same glow stick bracelets in 5-pack, 10-pack and 25-pack quantities in different parts of the store. The employee confirmed they’re the same so make sure you grab the biggest size pack!

3. Halloween pencils

Sticking with candy-alternatives, check out these cute Halloween pencils. These would be a great allergy-free option for tricker or treaters.

4. Play-doh

You probably wouldn’t expect play doh on a Dollar Tree Halloween list but this is another great non-candy trick-or-treat option. My kids absolutely love when they’ve gotten play doh on Halloween.

5. Candy bowl

The Dollar Tree has cute bowls for putting your Halloween candy on Halloween night. Below is an example of a black cat shaped bowl.

6. Trick-or-treat containers

In addition, Dollar Tree also has containers for kids to carry around trick or treating. For example, these Halloween-themed buckets could be used for candy collection.

You can find kids costumes at Dollar Tree. They have “full” costumes and also pieces of costumes like fairy and butterfly wings that you can pair with your own outfit.

Kids aren’t the only ones who can get a dollar store costume. They also have a selection of dog costumes, like this hot dog costume for a small dog.

Moving on to decor, there are SO many Halloween-y decorations at Dollar Tree. Here are some plastic skeletons that my toddlers went nuts for (as you can see them grabbing them in the picture below).

16. Decorative candles

You can also find full candles at the dollar store, if you don’t want to fuss with a separate candle and candle holder. Pictured below are some skull themed ones for the holiday.

17. Scented melting wax

Along with candle holders, you can also get melting wax at Dollar Tree in fun fall scents, to make your house feel more festive.

18. Fall tchotchke

In addition to Halloween decor, Dollar Tree also has a wide selection of more general fall-y decorations. These cute trucks have pumpkins for Halloween or could also be for the fall season.

19. Fall dishware

You can find cute fall-themed dishes. I really liked the pumpkin mugs in the more subtle blues and browns, seen in the middle of the picture below.

Do you need Halloween garland? Probably not. But is it fun? Absolutely.

21. Wall decorations

Dollar Tree has a lot of decorations that you simply hang on a wall or door, like the witch hat pictured below. These are great because they are so low effort.

22. Pumpkin gift bags

These fabric gift bags could be used for gifts, party favors or even decorations. You could stuff them and use them as a simple decoration inside or outside.

23. Goody bags

Dollar Tree also has more disposable goody bags that you can use to give to treat-or-treaters or for party favors. There are double the amount of treat bags in these than the fabric bags.

24. Strobe light

You can even pick up cool strobe lights for your outside Halloween decorations. These are also small enough to fit inside a jack-o-lantern.

25. Outdoor lights

I really like these creepy eyeball stake lights. They’re solar so you don’t need to worry about batteries making them extra easy.

26. Spider webs

Spider webs are the classic Halloween decoration. It’s easy, a little goes a long way, and kids love to help with it.

27. Halloween window decals

Window decals are great easy decorations, but they’re also great as a toddler activity. My kids will play with decorating windows with decals for way longer than I’d expect.

28. Trick or treat bag

In addition to trick or treat buckets, Dollar Tree also has cute bags for trick-or-treat candy. I like a bag because it is more flexible (and easier to stash underneath a stroller when my kid inevitably tuckers out).

29. Halloween scarf

Want to get in the Halloween spirit without a full-blown costume? Our Dollar Tree had a section of Halloween scarves to add a touch of holiday fun to an outfit.

30. Halloween ribbon

Dollar Tree has ribbons galore and had some nice festive Halloween ones. The glittery black ones you could reuse for other occasions too.

31. Halloween cards

Dollar Tree is such a great place to buy cards. They’re so much cheaper than at the grocery store, and their selection of Halloween ones was solid.

Dollar Tree is teeming with different styles of decorative pumpkins. They have these on stakes that could be used in crafts or bouquets.

You can also find a lot of different Halloween-themed craft supplies at Dollar Tree. As an example, here are some cute wool pumpkins in the picture below.

34. Carvable pumpkin

My friend turned me on to fake carvable pumpkins. It’s a nice kid activity, especially when they’re too young for knives to do their own real pumpkin.

Who doesn’t love cute holiday-themed socks? Our Dollar Tree had Halloween socks for adults, kids and babies.
