Customize Spooky Pumpkin decor

You might be thinking to yourself, if most of these recipes call for orange pumpkins then what are the other pumpkins good for?

Well, you can simply place them around your island as decoration. Or if you have enough of one type of color, you can also take an existing Spooky Pumpkin decoration to a workbench and customize it. For instance, it takes four of any other pumpkin in order to change the color of the Spooky Tower.

Spooky Wall, Flooring, and Rug

It’s rumored that you can only get the Spooky Wall, the Spooky Flooring, or the Spooky Rug by giving candy to your villagers on Halloween. We’re not entirely sure what these things look like, but we’ll update as soon as possible.
