It’s nearing the spookiest time of the year, and Halloween decorations are beginning to line the shelves – cobwebs, black cats, jack-o-lanterns, you name it. However, CFS wants you to push your creative flair to the limit with these 10 ways to spice up your dorm decorating game.
1. Quote Pumpkins
Buy some colourful plastic pumpkins and stencil in the text with acrylic or spray paint!
2. Tiny Tombstones
To make your own mini graveyard, just take an empty shot glass, add some soil, and stick in a small rock headstone. These are perfect for empty windowsills and shelves.
3. Spooky Planetarium
This decoration is a bit more difficult to make, but you just need to hollow out a pumpkin, add some greenery, and stick in a few themed paper cut-outs. Think outside the box with your creations!
4. Removable Wall Stickers
Scared of commitment? Wall stickers are easy to apply and remove, so no need to worry about paint damage. They’re also affordable, and are generally available at dollar stores or your local Walmart.
5. Artsy Nightlight
Here’s your chance to bring the full moon into your room with this lunar illuminator. They can be found in a variety of bookstores such as Barnes & Noble.
6. Themed Garlands
String together some Halloween coloured balls and hang them from your doorway or wall for an elegant and adorable decoration.
7. Tea Light Jars
Mason jars, orange/black twine, and battery powered tea lights are the ultimate classy combination. Also, you won’t have to worry about setting off the fire alarm!
8. Halloween Mugs

Make your doorway all the more interesting with an ominous but cute doormat.
