    • Halloween Tabletops

      White Pumpkins, Part 1 from lamaywilliams

      Why we picked this: The striking layers of white and orange on this table caught our eyes, and the votive and berry details won us over. (Not to mention the pumpkins' faces -- too cute!)

    • Halloween Tabletops

      White Pumpkins, Part 2 from lamaywilliams

      Why we picked this: Our favorite white pumpkins are back with a slightly simpler arrangement. This time, a tall glass vase containing a single tea light was covered in the same confetti that is sprinkled about the table.

    • Halloween Tabletops

      Man-Eating Plant from ethanblackarts

      Why we picked this: We can't believe how convincingly this handcrafted monster turned an everyday potted plant into flesh-eating flora.

    • Halloween Tabletops

      Murder of Crows from scottygirl90

      Why we picked this: We love the drama! The orange backlighting is a great way to show off that intricate silhouette of a haunted house and crows.

    • Halloween Tabletops

      Halloween Table Runner from pier4phx

      Why we picked this: Our hats go off to the maker of this festive Halloween table runner. Its simple shapes look great in this bold color scheme.

    • Outdoor Decor

      Haunted Mansion from marytmccarthy984915

      Why we picked this: Because it looks like a movie set! The window clings on this Victorian home were hand-drawn by a friend, and then transferred to inexpensive plastic painters' drop cloths and backlit. Bravo!

    • Outdoor Decor

      Tree Face from ethanblackarts

      Why we picked this: Crafted from expanding foam and spray paint, this creepily-realistic face was attached to the tree with fishing line.

    • Outdoor Decor

      Corn shocks from starkellyjesse

      Why we picked this: Corn shocks never fail to bring a little fall charm wherever they reside. The orange ribbons bind them beautifully.

    • Outdoor Decor

      Cozy Fall Porch from brittneykeyes88

      Why we picked this: It's the ultimate trick-or-treat porch: inviting and child friendly, but with enough crows and cobwebs to add a little creepiness for the adults.

      Outdoor Decor

      "Welcome!" from one800nayda

      Why we picked this: We think these lights give the skeleton and coffin just the right amount of eerie glow. And the blue lights in its eyes are a scream!

      Outdoor Decor

      Fall Garden from Echoes

      Why we picked this: The splashes of colorful leaves really stand out and pull everything together. We always love natural decor for Halloween because it can stay up all autumn long!

      Sweet Little Ghosts from maryinva48

      Halloween Tree from dpollyanna
