Best Ways to Give Your Dorm Room a Spooky Makeover This Halloween

Halloween is just around the corner, and you can get ready for this holiday by giving your dorm room a spooky makeover. If you decide to go down this road, here are five tips and tricks that you should keep in mind when choosing your Halloween decorations.

Dormmate Agreement

If you share your dorm room with other people, make sure to discuss your decision to decorate the room for Halloween and see if they want to take part and pitch in for decorations.

Go Small

Even if you used to approach Halloween with a “go big or go home” attitude before, that’s not an option in college. Your budget, storage space, and the size of your room will all be limited so try to embrace a more minimalistic approach to Halloween décor.

Keep it Cheap

Speaking of a limited budget, spending a fortune on Halloween decorations as a college student is not an option, so consider exploring dollar shops, thrift stores, or working on DIY decorations.

Reusable Décor

When shopping for Halloween décor, try to focus on the items you can reuse time and time again. From themed bedding and pillowcases to spooky string lights and wall art, only buy spooky décor pieces that last and don’t take up too much space.
