Halloween is a beloved holiday for children of all ages. The candy, costumes, and decorations all add to the festivity of the holiday. While some may prefer more happy and cheerful Halloween decorations, most enjoy a good scare or startle this time of year. Treat your guests to a little bit of spooky fun this year with these frightful decorations on your front door.
Cover the door with white butcher paper and then liberally apply fake blood in a splatter fashion. Drape yellow Caution tape diagonally across the door from one corner to the other. A rubber body part or two can also be attached to the paper. Your friends will wonder what horrific scene awaits them on the other side. Fans of gory movies and true crime stories will love this holiday décor.
What is Halloween without a witch or two? Cut a black garbage bag to fit the entirety of the front door. Use double sided tape to attach securely. Arrange glow in the dark stars around the top and sides of the bag to create a frame for your witches. Decide on the size of the images you wish to use for your spooky scene. The larger the shapes, the less you can fit comfortably on the door. Use pre made witch cutouts and arrange them in a patter that looks attractive to the eye. When night falls, the stars will give your coven an eerie glow and delight visitors who dare to come to call.
Let your holiday guests know that they are entering a house that sees all. Start with an old sheet that you don’t mind repurposing into a Halloween decoration. Lay out flat on the floor and cut to the dimensions of your front door. With black paint, create a large eyeball shape. Using bold strokes, make a rudimentary design of the necessary elements of the eye. Paint red dots with a skinnier brush to make the eyeball bloodshot. The beauty of this decoration is that the less polished it is, the scarier it looks. This is one case where the less artistic talent you have, the better the project will be. A light or two shined directly from the yard on the front door will illuminate this decoration in a very frightening way.
Thanks to the popular Hitchcock film, many people find the idea of killer birds to be the stuff of their worst nightmares. Party stores that offer a vast selection of Halloween decorations often carry a large selection of stuffed birds that give most people the creeps. Purchase five or ten and attach to them to the front door. Add some fake blood and a random rubber hand or foot. In just a few minutes, the entrance of your house can be transformed into a scene that will surely result in more than a few cries of terror.
