    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!)

    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

    Murder of Crows from scottygirl90

    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!

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

    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!

    Why we picked this: We dare you to keep a straight face when looking at this humorous twist on an otherwise-scary witch.

    Why we picked this: This front-yard scene -- from the mossy gate to the crawling skeleton -- just gives us the creeps (¿ in a good way, of course)!

    Indoor Decor

    Bat Silhouettes from philpottmarylou

    Why we picked this: These batty silhouettes are fabulous and still quick enough to tack up last-minute. We love the simplicity!

    Indoor Decor

    Halloween Tree from dpollyanna

    Why we picked this: The vintage-style pumpkins, skeletons, and mummies make perfectly ghoulish ornaments for this spindly Halloween tree. And what could top such a tree better than a creepy black-cat grin?

    Halloween Craft

    Halloween Card from mhemrich

    Why we picked this: This ghostly footprint gives Halloween crafts a clever, childlike twist. And it's such a versatile embellishment -- we can imagine it on almost any paintable surface.
