Here’s a couple Creative Solutions for decorating your windows and doors for Halloween that are inexpensive and pretty easy.
1. The Monster Door (as seen on Pinterest)
This was super, super easy. Using leftover streamers, masking tape, and paper plates, I put this together in less than 15 minutes.
- Hair: adhere some streamers to the top of your door with masking tape.
- Eyes: paint black dots on a couple of white paper (or foam) plates, adhere those to your door with a loop of masking tape… add angry eyebrows with more masking tape.
- Mouth: more masking tape… one across and several shorter pieces slanting in different directions
Since I already had all the supplies on hand, this cost me $0.
2. Picture Window Pumpkin (Julie Original Creative Solution)
We have a 9-panel picture window in the “formal living room” that we use as the boys’ playroom. I decided to cover the window panes by making a pumpkin face using bulletin board paper from the Teacher Supply Store (Lakeshore Learning). With the help of my 6 1/2 year old, this project took about 1 1/2 hours total.
- Measure and cut the paper (30 minutes)
- Paint the face on the appropriate pieces (20 minutes to paint, another 20 min to dry)
- Hang the pieces on the window using masking tape (20 minutes)
The Pumpkin Window looks great during the day and glows at night. Total cost: $6 – $7 for a roll of paper; I already had the masking tape and paint on hand.
