Front Door Decorations for Halloween

With less than 4 weeks until that spookiest of nights, it’s hard not to get excited with these fun  Halloween front door craft projects!

The pictures and tutorials below will give you loads of inspiration and there’s still more than enough time to get crafting.

We also threw in this fun Halloween front door monster video too.  We love the kids’ reactions to this freaky front door monster. Not easy to pull off though unless you have such a unique front entrance to your house as this one but check it out anyway!

Anyone else feeling a little uneasy right now?  Halloween and spiders – what better combination?  You’ll never guess how they’re held onto the door!  Very cool.  Click on through to Delia Creates for a full tutorial on getting this scarey look.  We also love the picture she has with the spiders rearranged into a trail across the front door.  Very freaky indeed.  See more…
