Dorm Dec Wednesdays: Halloween Decor, Part One

Well now, it's the middle of September & I am ready for Halloween!  We recently had our annual block party here at my University & that signals its officially time for fall!  I love all seasons but one of my favorite holidays is Halloween.  (My top faves: Halloween, Christmas, my birthday, Fourth of July)  I love the decorations, the stories, the creepy-ness.   I love it ALL!!!

Here on Dorm Dec Wednesdays for the next few weeks I am going to showcase some Halloween decor ideas.  I love creating little scenes (& seeing the ones other's have created) & all of the things I showcase can be combined to create an awesome Halloween decor display!

Here's the first:

Over on Better Homes & Gardens I found this great tutorial for an interesting pumpkin.  The tutorial calls for a melon baller & your own two hands! Start scooping & create your dots.  If you carve out the inside, BHG suggests, a candle/pumpkin light with illuminate the holes.  Now isn't that something?

Indoor Decor: Bring it indoors with a few medium & small sized pumpkins displayed on books, on candlesticks (the bigger ones that can withstand the weight & still be stable), under a cloche, or (if you can find more round small ones) on a cupcake stand.

Out Door Decor: For an outside display use varying sized pumpkins displayed up your porch steps, display a few in a window (from the inside looking out), or put them in your yard near your mailbox, side walk, or a lamp.

I think I am going to do a Halloween Decor Link Party each Wednesday in October so make sure you check back!

I can not wait to carve pumpkins this year!! Do you do any crazy pumpkin things each year? Any interesting Halloween traditions?
