Goblins, Ghosts, Vampires and Giant Spiders – Oh it must be Halloween time!

We have  fantastic orange doors that scream to be decorated for Halloween.  I needed  something crafty I could do during nap time and I wanted something that didn’t cost a lot.  Yeah, I could have gone out and bought some decorations, but I really wanted to make something and be creative. 

 The spider web was an easy and creative way to decorate our door for Halloween, I could have put in the window and it would have been just a cute.  I created this decoration in a few hours while the kids took their afternoon nap. Those few hours included gathering my supplies, figuring out what I was going to cut out via inspiration from the internet and then executing my idea.

Supply list:

  • Black Tag Board
  • Pencil
  • Exacto Knife
  • Cutting Mat
  • You’re Imagination!

Step 1.  Draw out your design to be cut out.  Don’t limit yourself to a spider web.  It could be as easy as the outline of a ghost, witch or haunted house. If you are using an Exacto knife, make sure you have a surface below your tag board that can be cut/scratched up, Exacto knives are very sharp and will leave gouges.

Step 2. Cut out your design.  Don’t forget, it is a Halloween decoration; it doesn’t need to be perfect, the less perfect, the more SPOOKY!

Done!

Step 3.  Hang it in your storm door or window and enjoy!

Happy Halloween!
