3. Morgue Decor Door

But how do we make the morgue door? Relax, we have got this for you. You can cut 3 pieces of foam core based on your door’s size. Attach all these pieces using tight glue or adhesive that can hold them together for a long. Now attach a black paper piece that is cut to the size of the foam. Stick this black piece of paper to the foam using adhesive.
Use stainless steel T-hinges and stick them on the door. After sticking these, use left-over black craft paper to cut out 5 coffin-shaped papers. Paint different letters of the name “Morgue” on them separately. Use red color to paint them. Using double-sided tape, attach them at the top. Use a chain-like design to hang them, although double-sided tapes do the work amazingly.

Are you not able to figure out what to do with all the masks you already have? One amazing idea is to use them in your Halloween door decorations. They are already designed for the Halloween theme. It will save a lot of time and labor to make a stunning yet creepy door design using these masks.

Witch costumes are getting famous and in trend day by day, if any member in your house has chosen to go with a witch costume this year, having this idea for your Halloween door decorations is probably the most suitable for you. Why not bring some broomsticks and create Halloween decor.
Take two large brooms that you use outside and make two holes in their handle. Use a hammer to attach 5 very small-sized nails in front of your door. hang these brooms upside down on your door. Take other broomsticks preferably smaller in size and attach them to the remaining nails in the upright position (refer to the picture to get a clear understanding).
You may use a spirit board doormat along with Grecian urn planters to enhance the overall look it gives.

If the artists’ papers you receive are colorless, use acrylic paints to paint them with colors of your choice. Dry them for a while, then using scissors cut them in the shape of triangles. Try to collect as many as you can.
Attach these to your door using double-sided tapes. You may end woven planters along with a lobster rope doormat. And here you do, your Halloween door decorations are done!
7.Vintage Drama Door
Can we discuss Halloween door decorations without using a vintage drama theme? Trust me, we cannot. Everything vintage is so trendy and up to the mark for any festive decorations. I know it’s Halloween but you do not have to choose the creepy theme every year, why not have fun with some vintage drama?
We have a lot to chose from when it comes to the vintage theme, but let’s go for Halloween vintage theme. Grab some stickers of pretty vintage pumpkins and prints of harvest style. This is still going to conjure the vibes of Halloween.
Where should you start? Let me tell you where to begin with. Just close all the tabs on your computer and download vintage seed packets preferably fall-themed. Based on your door measurements, download these pictures. Just print them and you are ready with all the props you need, isn’t it simple? Just use hot glue or tape to adhere to these on your porch.

Bring a faux cobweb and spread it all over inside this ring. If you feel it’s getting bigger compared to the size of your embroidery ring, just cut it.
Add some spiders to the web you have designed. Small faux spiders are great for placing as the effect they give is clearly realistic as you see in the picture taken.
