A good Halloween party should scare your guests in minute 0. That’s why we teach you how to decorate the doors of your house with different terrifying motifs. Halloween is a lot of fun, whether you are a child looking to score candy or an adult trying to make the most wonderful decorations. Speaking of decorations, we really like this part and we are happy to come up with new and interesting ideas every year and share them with you. Today we focus on Halloween door decorations and all the ways you can spook not only the front door but also space around it.
Mummies, vampires, spider webs, witches. The most terrifying creatures sneak everywhere into our Halloween party. And since we want yours to be perfect, we offer you some ideas to decorate the doors of your home or school. They will remain dead!
1. Pink and Lilac door wreath
If black and white is not really your style and you prefer a more colourful approach, check out this lilac wreath. The bats are pink and bright, which are not exactly accurate, but the fact that this is such an unusual colour palette makes the crown scary in a different and more vibrant way.
2. Reflector on the front door
Can’t anyone look forward to seeing the decor of your huge door once it gets dark outside? You can fix that if you use bright ornaments in the dark or if you have some discounts or lighting accent you can use to put the reflector on the front door. Check out Flickr for more inspiration options.
3. Tin Tombstone Near Door
The tombstones have a scary aura and are quite easy to make. Just to be clear, we’re talking about Halloween decorations. A tin tombstone is a pretty interesting idea because you can customize it, however, you want and write or draw whatever you want. It could be displayed on or near the front door.
4. Spider Web on Door
Spider web can also give someone shivers and we absolutely love how easy it is to make them. If you want to decorate the front door, for example, all you need is a black (or white, tape that works too). Check out the home talk to see what it might look like. It would be nice to add a few spiders, just to make the design more realistic.
5. Topiary Pumpkin
Isn’t this topiary pumpkin just wonderful? It is a perfect decoration for the front door or for the porch in general. To do this, you will need the following: a few jack-o-pumpkin lanterns, a wooden dowel, a pot, spray paint, primer, extension cord and flowers. You could use an existing planter if you wanted. You can check tatertotsandjello to find out more about the project.
6. Simple Pumpkins and a BOO welcome mat
You can make the front door look ready for Halloween without being too scary. We really like what design improvised suggests in this regard: a BOO welcome mat, simple pumpkins and a wonderful crown that you can customize in a lot of beautiful and fun ways.
7. Black and White Halloween porch
A black and white Halloween porch might look super cool. You could spray paint some pumpkins or decorate them with bows, shells and other things and you could put in signs. This veranda configuration, presented on crafty critters, is welcome due to the hay bale, the wooden box and the general rustic background, so it can also be a source of inspiration.
8. Corbie Crown
Many of the ideas on our list are fun and cute, but if you want something with a scarier or darker aura, you should focus on projects like this corbie crown, featured on the painted cover. To do this you will need a crown of vines, a bunch of black feathers or leaves and two (or more) crow ornaments.
9. Glass Door
A glass door gives a lot of freedom when decorating because you can display things on the inside and hide imperfections behind the door. For example, you can use the idea offered on simplemadepretty. All you need is a few pieces of cardboard and a marker pen or paint and a plus stencil tape.
10. Skull Crown
A skull crown can also look scary. You can display it on the front door to create a gloomy ambience right from the entrance. You can find a tutorial that describes how to make the crown on tryandtrueblog. Necessary supplies include polystyrene mini skulls, sturdy wire, soldering gun and ribbon.
Witches can be quite scary. However, they can be difficult to achieve and you may want to simplify things a bit. For example, you could just hold the brooch and forget about the witch altogether. Check out mayas for worse ideas.
12. Googly Eyes
I don’t know about you, but I like my eyes and I like to put them all on, so, of course, I find this craftalo-anonymous project to be wonderful. The idea is to decorate the front door with a bunch of googly eyes to make it look like a scary monster, but also playful.
13. Bunch of bird silhouettes
I also discovered an easy Halloween decoration idea on a woman’s hand. We really like how simple the decor is: just a bunch of bird silhouettes scattered on the door and on the walls. You can do something similar to bar silhouettes that are easier to cut.
14. Fabrics or black paper
Since most doors are rectangular, if you want to turn into a huge spider, it will look a little strange, but you can use this in your favour to create a stupid and playful decor. If the front door is not black, it’s okay. You can temporarily cover it with some fabrics or black paper. Add large, bare eyes and legs (they should extend to the sides, to the walls). Check out the complete tutorial on Darice.
15. Legs of witch
We returned to the witch and we would like to show a project that was presented during the holidays. We’re not sure about the rest of this poor witch, but we’re happy that her legs are so easy to carry. You can also add a sign to mark the place. It can be said that “ding dong the witch of evil is dead” or something similar. If you don’t have ruby slippers, that’s okay. Maybe you can give a pair of shoes a quick make-up.
16. The ghost door
The Ghost in front of the door is always a perfect idea for Halloween. People are going to definitely get scared and will love it too. As you can see in the picture, you will scare the fear!
17. Pumpkin gate
This door was decorated with orange Pinocchio paper, black cardboard, and, green net. It’s very cool!DOR
18. The gate of Count Dracula
To decorate this door we used purple cards for the face, black for the hair, eyebrows, pupils, nose, mouth, jacket and buttons, white for the eyes, fangs and shirt, green for the iris of the eyes and a piece of red cellophane for the bow tie.
19. The cat’s door
Black cats are famous because they are unlucky when they can be adorable! We turn our door into a Halloween cat by cutting some ears and a black cardboard tail, which we will also use to line the door. The eyes will be made of green cardboard, the nose with red and the moustache in gray.
20. Jack Skeleton’s gate
Jack Skeleton, the character from the movie Nightmare Before Christmas, is a Halloween classic. We will turn our door into it by lining it with white cardboard and adding eyes, nose and mouth with black cardboard.
21. The mummy’s door
To turn your door into a mummy, start by creating the eye area with a black background card, yellow eyes. Then grab a roll of toilet paper and glue strips around the door to bring your mummy to life.
22. Monster red door
To turn our door into a dangerous red monster, we lined it with red cardboard, added a black-and-white cardboard boot and eyes, and a somewhat disastrous made of black wool.
23. Frankenstein green gate
How much we love this door! I decorated it using green cardboard for the background, black for the hair, scars, mouth, eyes and the spider that drives the monster on the face. A piece of white cardboard will help us make our fangs and eyes and finish our monster.
24.The bat gate
Black cardboard is essential in this bat-shaped door design. They were used for the monster’s body and wings. Then I decorated the ears and the small nose with brown cardboard, the eyes with yellow and the mouth with fangs using white.
25. Spider web door
How easy it is to decorate this door and what an attractive result it gives us! Wrap it in black cardboard and cut out some white spider webs. Using the black card, cut out the outline of a pile of spiders and stick them over the door.
