Spooky Front Door Decor:
Front Door Decor is what everyone gets to see, and they’ll love this.
- 1 large piece of cardboard, same width and length as your door
- Black Construction Paper
- Permanent marker
- Scotch Tape
- Bat stencils (optional)
Step 1: Prep your cardboard
Using the scissors, cut out the cardboard into 5 equal pieces along the width, measuring about 5 inches in height. Use a pencil to outline the signs you want to write up, such as KEEP OUT, or BEWARE! on each piece. Then use the black marker to fill in the pencil outline, add any other features you feel like adding to your cardboard, let your imagination run wild!
Step 2: Make some bats
If you’re working with stencils, use them to cut out as many bats as you want out of your black construction paper. Glue some to your cardboard pieces, and save the rest to put up on the door. If you’re good at drawing, you can simply draw the bat’s and cut them out instead.
Step 3: Setting everything up
Once you’re done prepping, start with putting the fishnet on the door first to give the illusion of a giant spider web. The tape will come in handy for this one! Start placing the cardboard pieces over your door. Finally, take the rest of your bats and stick them on the door wherever you think best. And just like that, you have an easy, sinister looking door for all the trick or treaters out there!

Finally, hang your ghosts wherever you want to, and they’re guaranteed to give passersby goosebumps, especially at night!
