Decorations are home and yard decor (office, bedroom, etc.) that stand alone.

Get Griswoldian with your Halloween decorations this year. Animatronic yard zombies, Scooby-doo portraits with holes for eyes, ghostly light shows, or DIY black candles are only some of the many options available at Halloween. If it’s scary, we want to see how you’ve adorned your house with it. And if you decorate your office or classroom instead, we want to see that, too.

Share your best Halloween decorations to win a DSLR, zombie-proof backpack, and all winners will receive a limited edition Instructables Halloween t-shirt.
