Big Lots Halloween ’17

[Please keep in mind any sales or discounts you see in the following photos may not be valid due to the date the photos were taken.

Big Lots doesn’t typically have my kind of Halloween decor, but they did have a few items this year that surprised me. One of the items is a spooky tv projector thing that I wasn’t able to get a picture of because the day I saw it I had left my phone at home! Then, the day I got these photos it was gone. Just my luck.

Update: I went back, and it was there. The video is at the end of the post.

The giant skeleton dragon is calling my name, naturally. The only problem is, I have nowhere to put it. It reminds me of the skeleton horse Home Depot had last year. This one is missing a leg, but it’s still really cool and freakin’ huge.

One day, when I have the space, I will have them ALL! #lifegoals 😎

They’ve got a bunch of skeleton animals, though. I’ve got a cat and a bird that I painted gold to match my office decor. To have any more would be overkill, as tempting as it is.

The howling wolves are so nice!

Side note: does anybody else get bothered when they see anatomically incorrect skeleton animals during Halloween season? Pet peeve.

Big Lots has impressed me with a couple of things this year. They seem to have some of the best prices on Halloween lighting, too, if that’s a thing you’re interested in.

I’ll keep this post updated with any new items I see, and I’m determined to snag a picture of that tv projector thing I mentioned before. If you’ve got a Big Lots anywhere near you, pop in and see if you can find it. It’s fun to play with! 🎃

Update 9/3/2017: 


Here’s the Haunted Television, that they’re selling for $35:


  • Those little lanterns and yard stakes are so cute! So many cute items for Halloween!

    • Right?! There was an electrical looking scare prop that was motion sensitive, that really did scare me… yikes.

  • Maggie Unzueta

  • Christina S

    I love me some Big Lots! I wish we had them in my area because they are always the best for holiday decorations!

    • Yes, super inexpensive! That’s a bummer you don’t have one near you! They may ship to your area, I don’t know about shipping costs, though. But that may take away from the low price point.

    It’s amazing to me how many Halloween decorations there are. I am loving those big skeleton dragons.

    • Me too. It’s so awesome, if I had it outside my house it would probably get stolen lol. Definitely never seen anything like it before!

  • Sharon Glascoe
