8 Clever Ways to Decorate Your Doors This Halloween
Googly Eye Door
For an idea that’s more silly than scary, try attaching googly eyes all over your front door. Place pairs of the eyes with restickable dot tape, so you can easily remove them after Halloween is over. Choose a festive wreath or frame to complete the look.

Halloween decorations don’t have to be confined to your front door—treat your porch as a festive nook. Along with the orange and black wreath, garland, and paper birds displayed on the front door, the seating area with Halloween-themed pillows and the planter with the stacked pumpkins create a cozy nook.

If you aren’t allowed to decorate the outside of your front door (say, because of apartment building regulations), take it inside. Spray-paint a large doily—which you can find at a craft store—black and cut into quarters. Then, sew black bias tape to the edges of the doily and hang on the corners of your doorway.

Turn your door into a monster for Halloween with just black foam and white poster board. Cut out the monster’s hair, stitches, and mouth from the black foam. Then cut out the eyeballs and teeth from the white poster board. Stick the designs on the door with damage-free picture hanging strips for easy removal after Halloween.

Simple and Spooky Front Porch
All you need to create an eerie-looking door is a cloth with netting details. Cover your front door with the fabric and instead of a wreath, hang up a witch’s hat. If you have room on your porch, decorate with pumpkins, autumn leaves, and a lantern.

Rustic Fall Porch
If you don’t want to decorate your front door in orange and black and scary monsters, opt for a more natural, rustic look. Dress up your porch with corn stalks, hay bales, and an old ladder, pumpkins, and an autumnal wreath. This decorating project can stay up until Thanksgiving.
