According to a Google article, over 10 Billion was spent on Halloween in 2022 and it is set to increase this year. That’s a lot of money for a girl on a budget. Me on the other hand, I am a save money on crafts kinda girl. My crafts are pretty inexpensive but packed full of the holiday vibe even if it is a one day and gone holiday. Here’s an upcycled sap bucket made into a holiday treat bucket. Just look at that retro vibe created by the Roycycled Retro Halloween Paper
