We love the way this tumbler seamlessly combines two wildly different aesthetics—pastel colors and petrifying phrases—to create something that is truly one of a kind.

Pumpkin Table Decor
We love the way @artandshore put their own spin on this resin pumpkin. Sure, real pumpkins only come in certain colors—but reality doesn’t mean you have to limit your crafting choices! If there’s a particular palette for your autumn home decor, don’t let anything hold you back. Whether you’d rather create a coastal pumpkin or prefer a more standard gourd, resin is compatible with a variety of colorants, so you will surely be able to find the perfect shade.
Use epoxy resin to decorate a tumbler with your favorite horror film icons. The unique look of this particular tumbler by @dulce_prints unites these frightening faces with pretty pastel pinks and purples. What kinds of Halloween-themed iconography would you put on your tumbler?
These adorable resin pumpkins made by @tARTbyTARA can bring a sparkling autumn vibe to any surface in your home with sparkling autumn vibes. Use mica powders or alcohol inks to cast them in a variety of colors; you can even add encapsulations like glitter, flowers, or stones to make the perfect pumpkin.
Octopus Trinket Tray
Ok, we know: octopi aren’t always associated with Halloween, we know. However, we absolutely had to include this tray by Instagrammer @jenuoneart in this list. Of course, you can easily customize this design for Halloween. What about a trinket dish decorated with a Cthulu made of 3D resin art instead of a painted octopus? Whatever image you use, your friends are sure to marvel at your ingenuity when they see this adorning your tablescape.
