Greetings Ghoulies and Ghosties,

Think back to middle school when decorating your bedroom door was all the rage. The door would proudly display your allegiance to your favorite sports team, or bear a shrine to a teen idol.

Sometimes working in an office or living in a rented space can harken back to those times when you could only flirt with interior design. This is the perfect way to instantly add some Halloween spirit to your space. Best of all--besides how budget friendly it is--is the minimal effort it requires to yield spooktacular results. A monster door is definitely a statement piece.

Monster Doors

Supplies:

Paper Plates


Construction Paper

Masking Tape or Discarded Mummy Bandages

Multi-colored Streamers

Freshly collected Spider’s Web

Instructions:

  1. First assemble your eyes, cut any shape pupil you would like out of construction paper and adhere to the paper plate with masking tape. Do this for as many eyes you would like your door to have.
  2. Cut strips of the streamer to create strands of hair. Adhere to the top of the door to let the strands hang down.
  3. Attach the eyes to the door with masking tape.
  4. Create a “stitched” effect on the door with strips of masking tape.
  5. Add the spider’s web and any other decorations you might like.

These instructions are more of guidelines. This project is totally customizable and can be as cute or gruesome or creepy as you would like. Have fun!
