DIY Halloween front doors

It’s October! Which mean Halloween is just around the corner.

According to the National Retail Federation, Americans are expected to spend $6.9 billion on Halloween costumes, candy, and decorations. That’s nearly $75 per person!

Less than half, 45%, plan to decorate their home or yard, with the average person spending $20.34. (Source: chicagotribune.)

With a little creativity, you don’t have to spend any money at all. Here are simple ideas to decorate your front door with items you probably already have at home.

If you have a green door, black construction paper, and white paper plates, this is a simple design that anyone can do in an hour. Plus, it’s not too scary for the little ones.

I love the 3-D effect on this door with the bats flying around. Get your free bat template here.

If you have leftover kraft paper or old brown grocery bags, this one is a fun door to recreate. Reuse your spider web decorations from last year for a 3-D effect.

This was made with white fabric. But you could always use an old white sheet, gauze, or toilet paper.

Here’s a simple one made with paint and white sheets. But this would certainly frighten the younger kids in my neighborhood. Maybe for an adult Halloween party.

With chalkboard paint, you can be creative for every occasion.

Seriously? The black streamers are made from garage bags! So creative.

You don’t have to spend a cent on decorating your front door. Save your money for yummy treats for the kids and make it a fun Halloween for all. What ideas do you have this Halloween?
