Affordable Halloween Ideas

Pumpkin Patch Outfit


 Above I rounded up all of my favorite bold striped sweaters that are all under $200 in various price ranges so that you can shop the cutest ones at affordable prices that are right for your budget. My flared sleeve, Halloween striped sweater is a favorite that I picked up last year from Anthropologie. Lucky for you they have an identical one that is cashmere and it is on sale for under $50. Talk about a steal! Bold stripes are always trending this time of year and there are so many styles in various colors that I can’t wait to pick up. Bold wide stripes are something I have been obsessed with lately and I can’t wait to do a mixed print outfit with fall stripes and fall plaid.


I love getting festive this time of year with fall and Halloween fun. Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. If I could afford it I would go all out with extravagant costumes and decorations. But as a fashion blogger you have to stay on a strict budget and holiday fun is often a luxury. But I am still finding ways to celebrate on the cheap side, may not be as fun but there is still so much to do.

Dressing for Halloween doesn’t mean you always have to wear a costume. You can be festive in a little orange and black. Or find an affordable Halloween graphic t-shirt at Etsy or Target. Or one of my favorite places with Halloween gear is ModCloth. They have all kinds of adorable and affordable things with bats, cats, pumpkins and more. Check out my favorite items below. If you need an affordable Halloween costume, the first place I would check is Goodwill! They always have a good selection of unique costumes that are much cheaper than the Halloween stores and is a great stop for last minute costume needs.


Halloween activities that I love to do every year is visiting a new pumpkin patch and corn maze. Pumpkin patches are scattered everywhere and each one has something different to offer. Plus they are often free entry and can be fun to stroll around in. Fall festivals are often happening at these pumpkin patch farms and can be cheap Halloween fun with family or friends. Pumpkin carving is another activity that can be cheap. And if you have a little extra money a corn maze is always fun to get lost in this time of year. I try to stay away from the haunted ones, my nerves can’t handle the suspense.                    

Some other great ideas for Halloween celebrations on a budget is a movie night in. Spooky, scary, and fun. Harry Potter, A Nightmare Before Christmas, Hocus Pocus, and Practical Magical are all my favorites to watch this time of year. Ghost Tours, a visit to the Stanely Hotel in Estes Park is always good fun this time of year. Ciderfests and apple picking. There are endless amounts of fun this time of year.
