Halloween is going to be here soon!!! WOO! I’m sooooo excited!! I LOVE Halloween! Costumes, candy, pumpkins, spooky decorations…
So let’s talk about decorations. I don’t go “all-out” when it comes to decorating for any holiday. I wish I could, I just don’t have the stuff. But I like things to at least look festive so I work with what I have.
I saw some really cute ideas on Pinterest with ways to decorate your front door like this one:
Or this one:
So I came up with a little something of my own.
What you’ll need:
- a door
- black vinyl electrical tape
- a spider (I got mine from the dollar section at Target)
I started with 5 support lines. I made mine off center.Then I made the web by cutting smaller pieces of tape, starting in the middle and working my way around in a circle.Basically I kept working until I ran out of tape. I ended up having to cut that bottom support line shorter.Then I just taped the spider I got to his web. I just laid the pieces of tape right over the tape that was already there. I also made sure to keep the peep hole uncovered. (One time I got reprimanded by our contractor for covering it with a wreath.)Finished product:View from outside:It was so simple and I love it. (minus the dated storm door)
And it kind of matches the spider web on our mailbox.Yes. That is a real spider web. Gross, I know, but we figured it fits the whole Halloween theme so we don’t have to clean it off until November, right?!?!
**I used the electrical tape because it’s black but also because it won’t chip the paint off the door when I take it down. If you have a black or dark colored door, frog tape would probably look really cool.
Now I need to get our costumes together. Clark’s first Halloween!!!! Did I mention I’m excited?!?!?!
