Easy DIY Halloween Door Decoration


Decorating for Halloween can be as simple as adding a halloween door sign and this easy Halloween door decoration is cute and festive without beeing too spooky.

My kids love getting out our Halloween decorations but Halloween around our house is more fun than it is spooky. When we decorate for Halloween we don't do a lot of scary stuff. We keep if fun and festive.

I'm all about semi homemade decor to make things easy while making them unique too. Today I'll walk you through the steps to make your own front door Halloween decor.

This Halloween door sign also makes for a great gift for a teacher when they pull out their door decorations for Halloween. (I've even spotted this project at our local Halloween carnival as one of the Halloween door decor items being raffeled off as a fundraiser!)

Step 1: Prepare the letters for your front door Halloween decor

  • Sand all your letters lightly and wipe clean with a damp cloth
  • Paint them a solid background color (mine are white). This is a great step to involve the kiddos in!
  • Let the letters dry completely.

Step 2: Paint patterns on the letters of your DIY Halloween sign

  • To make the polka-dots dip the tip of an eraser into some orange paint and dot it onto your letter. Be sure to go directly up and down to get perfect dots.
    • If you want the dots to be larger you can swirl the eraser in a circle. It's best to practice on a paper bag first.

  • For the chevron pattern cut a small piece of cardboard from the flap of a cereal box and use it as a stamp. Using the same method as the polka-dots, simply dip the edge in the paint and stamp it onto your wooden letter. Don't worry about making it too perfect.

When you're done, you'll have these cute letters! Once they're dry, it's time to put them together!

Step 3: Attach the letters of your Halloween door decoration with ribbon

  • Cut ribbon and hot glue it in a loop onto your top letter. This is what you will use to hang your sign.
  • Attach each letter by simply hot gluing short pieces of ribbon from one letter to the next.
    • I glued one going in the wrong direction! - Be sure to check before you start gluing.
    • The placement of your ribbon will depend on the letters you have.
  • Flip it over and add the foam cut outs.
