Dorm Room Halloween Decorations

It’s that time of the year where people start putting up cute Halloween decorations outside of their houses, looking for the perfect Halloween costume and buying candy, but as a college student all of the above become harder tasks because we’re pretty much broke, especially this far into the semester. Being broke means that you have to plan a thrift store outfit, or maybe recycle one from past years and make some modifications, it means no candy and for some it also means no cute Halloween decorations. But is it really Halloween without the spooky but cute decorations inside you room? Definitely not!! Below I will show you some budget friendly decorations so your room gets into the Halloween Spirit!
