4 Front Door Halloween Decorations

You don’t need witchcraft to conjure up something spooky for your home! Delight your trick-or-treaters with quirky and creative DIY Halloween decorations for your front door. Get the kids involved and add a few ghoulish touches with these simple ideas for your front door to set the mood this Halloween! We’ve also got some timeless ideas for styling up the front door to your property.


Tip 1 IconCoffin Door Décor

Using a ruler for continuity, draw six coffin shapes on black kraft paper and cut them out. Then draw six smaller coffin shapes onto grey kraft paper and repeat the process. Use the black cut-outs as your boarder and stick the grey kraft paper on top. Paint letters on the grey coffins with red acrylic paint to spell "COFFIN". Hang a plastic chain above the door and attach the coffin cut-outs with hot-glue (or clear sticky tape if preferred).


Tip 2 IconSweetie Wreath

This one is to be seen and not touched! You will need to gather plenty of assorted wrapped Halloween-theme sweets such as Black Jacks, lollipops and mini bitesize chocolates. Wrap a polystyrene ring in black ribbon and secure with pins. Attach the sweets with hot-glue, layering and overlapping as you go. Finish with a ribbon bow in the colour of your choice! We suggest black for a spooky effect.


Tip 3 IconPlenty of Pumpkins

Gather a variety of different sized pumpkins. Take a black sharpie and draw the outline of a creepy face onto each pumpkin. Carve out each one and ensure that there is room to place a tealight inside. Once you have a collection of spooky pumpkin heads, you can place them by the side of your front door and ignite the tealight before closing the top with the lid. Add a touch of quirkiness by featuring spooky-faced oranges with your pumpkins.

Tip 4 IconKeep Out Door Décor

It’s time to put the cardboard boxes lying around the house to good use! Measure the width of your front door and cut out the cardboard to imitate the appearance of wooden slabs. Paint a "Keep Out" sign on two slats and leave it to dry. Drape some artificial cobwebs across the door to give it a neglected appearance. Glue silver buttons to each corner of the cardboard to resemble bolts and tape the slabs to the door with double-sided sticky tape. Arrange the slabs horizontally then stand back and admire the scary sign!
