1. MUMMIFY YOUR HOME WITH BANDAGES
Let’s start out with a super simple, but impactful Mummies Door! All you’ll need is some funky craft paper to make horrifying monster eyes, which you can attach with double sided tape. You’ll also need some white bandages that you can buy from your local pharmacy. Wrap your door top to bottom in bandages, leaving room for the eyes. And hey presto! You’ve got yourself a frightening Mummified door with very minimal effort. The accompanying faux spider and web decor on the railings are equally frightening features in themselves.
2. STIR IN YOUR POTIONS AND CACKLE AT THE WITCHES DOOR
To this day Hocus Pocus is still one of my ultimate all time favourite Halloween movies and as such, a Witches door had to feature in our Halloween blog! We’re looking for black craft paper to cut out the silhouette of Bats or Crows/Ravens which we can attach to the door and surrounds. Find an old broom that you could spray paint in black and sit it next to a cauldron filled with pumpkins and Halloween goodies!
3. CREATE A MONSTERS FACE IN YOUR FRONT DOOR USING MASKING TAPE
Looking for a Halloween door decoration idea that only costs a few dollars, but is big on impact? A little masking tape is all you need to magic up a 'Halloween monster' design.
If you're wondering how to decorate a front porch and keep the kids entertained, get them on board with cutting out the materials needed and sticking duties. Like Dr. Frankenstein, they can see their masterpiece come to life!
'This was made with just using black, white and red poster board from her local stationary story and then Command strips to attach the poster board to the door. Super easy, non permanent, no tools needed!' explains Liz Morrow, interior designer and DIY evangelist
4. GO FOR A SOFTER STANCE WITH AN AUTUMNAL WREATH
If the idea of novelty Halloween door decoration ideas gives you the ick, there are more conservative ways to introduce Autumnal designs to your front porch
Wreaths are no longer just for Christmas, as homeowners opt to decorate their doors all year round, and Halloween and fall are no exception. So set the scene with a beautiful autumnal and insta-worthy display.
It can be as simply as adding a basket next to the door, bursting with crisp autumnal oranges and reds, through artificial flowers and mini pumpkins, or all-out with big floral arches and displays around the door frames.
And if a fresh pumpkin isn't your thing, or you want a low-maintenance look, invest in a ceramic pumpkin that you can also personalize to create any theme or colour you desire. This can be pulled out year after year, so is a cost-effective, and environmentally-friendly solution that won't see you dashing to your local store or pumpkin patch.
