5 Dorm Friendly Decorations for Halloween



Now that it’s October, it’s not too early to start getting into the spirit of Halloween! We put together a list of five ways to decorate your room while keeping with Housing policies. By the time you’re done, your room will be spooky and safe!

This simple banner is perfect for getting in the Halloween spirit if you want your decorations to fit the aesthetic. Use felt or construction paper.

Put your favorite Halloween candy into Mason jars! From jelly beans, candy corn, or licorice pieces, any candy will work. You can also decorate the jars to look like carved pumpkins or ghosts in a few minutes with some paper, scissors, and glue.

Spruce up an empty wall (or even a window) with paper bats! Cut out the bats and different shapes and sizes and tape them to your wall with masking tape or painter's tape.  If the bats’ wings curl off the wall, it’ll make them stand out!


Make glowing Halloween tea lights by placing a ping pong ball on top of  battery-powered tea light candles. Orange ping-pong balls are best for making jack-o-lantern faces, and white ones can be used to make eyeballs. The possibilities are endless as long as you’ve got some drawing supplies!


Your decorations don’t have to be limited to inside your room! Transform your door into a mummy with toilet paper and some paper for the eyes.
