Add some color and light to your drab dorm. These lights are fun and festive and sure to add a little sparkle and holiday vibe to your room.
Spooky Bats and Spider Webs
If you feel like going all out, add some fake cobwebs and eerie hanging bats from the ceilings or the bottom of loft beds.
One way to make a big statement is with a themed comforter (it covers up your bed, i.e., takes up at least half of your dorm room). Get spooky with your crush…it’s a great excuse to cuddle! P.S. Adding in the throw pillows instantly makes you seem like you’ve mastered adulting.
Paper Lanterns and Garland
If you don’t want over-the-top Halloween decorations, these paper lanterns and string of garland are for you. They send the message that you love Halloween, but with a Pinterest-y vibe.
These Cute Decorative Pumpkins
Pumpkins. Pumpkins everywhere. Plus, you can repurpose them for Thanksgiving.
This Bloody Shower Curtain
If you’ve got your own bathroom (consider yourself lucky because communal bathrooms are probably the scariest thing about college, TBH), this creepy shower curtain is guaranteed to scare your friends.
This Skull Mug
What’s better than coffee? Coffee in a Halloween mug, of course.
Your Halloween decorations aren’t complete without a string of bat garland to hang across a wall. Frickin' bats! I love Halloween. (Name that Vine.)
