Screaming at your door

Speak more subtly. The clever use of Halloween door decor from Instagrammer @wmanwarren makes us scream how great its entrance is. They are, above all, interesting pumpkins and pretty everyday plants, with a few key pieces to make a scary statement: a howling wolf skeleton and a DIY skull crown.

Door with wide Open eyes

This front door has eyes for you! Take an example on Instagrammer @thehousethatdiybuilt and collect huge, wide-open eyes at a local artisan shop. Then cut a mouth, hair and scar from black paper or felt. Attach them all to your front door with double-sided tape to give your home a fun but scary look.

Greeted by ghosts and ghouls

Instagrammer @ designermumetc doesn’t laugh when it comes to Halloween door decorations. Its front door is decorated with ghouls, cobwebs and lanterns ready to welcome anyone who dares to stop. DIY elements include a simple crown of dead branches, ghosts of balloons on sticks, and a shelf twisted in a weathered ladder. Well-placed lights, candles and small cut-out bats make the look.

Crown of Witchcraft

Instagrammer @ hellodaveswife uses ribbon lengths in Halloween colors hanging from the door to create a kind of deconstructed wreath with a hand-painted witch silhouette in the middle. Note that the cut out bat wings are not attached to make you feel ready to fly.

Do not cross

A simple printed ribbon makes a scary statement on its own. Instagrammer @tableandhouse scored his equal after a storm at the right time. “I picked up the police patrol and registered for the Halloween decoration. Yay, free decorations, ” she said. Buy Crime Scene Tape at Amazon or take caution tape at your local hardware store.

Silly Mother

Take big eyes (or do it with white and black paper) and rolls of white crepe paper to create a silly mummy, like Instagrammer @averykaidesign. The best part? The decorations continue on the other side of the door, bringing the creepy look inside the house! You can also decorate your windows for Halloween.
