A giant spider that dangles overhead requires very little legwork. To begin, use wire cutters to cut eight 26-inches pieces of wire, and then cover the length of one wire with a piece of double-sided tape. Unroll your streamers onto tape and cut them to the proper length; turn the wire over and repeat the process on the other side. Then, create a half-inch fringe on the sides of the streamers using fringe scissors—repeat the process on the other legs as well. Finally, open up a flutter ball and poke your top end of each leg into the ball, securing with tape. Suspend the ball from the ceiling using filament wire.
This is an easy Halloween door decoration idea if you’re a little busy this year or if you’re new to crafting. All you need is an old wood or plastic square or rectangular picture frame of any size, colored yarn and some tape to hold it all together. Choose from a wide variety of yarn colors – from white, black or yellow for a more traditional Halloween look to tie-dyed yarn for a more psychedelic vibe – whatever suits your mood. Weave your own spooky web and then hang it on your front door using some leftover yarn and a wreath hanger.

Is there anything cozier than sitting in front of the fireplace during a windy autumn night? We don’t think so. Encourage folks to settle down in your moody sitting room and get into a spooky state of mind when they take in your delightfully dismal display.

The black and purple color scheme is dark but elegant with sparkly purple pumpkins as well as silver and purple potion bottles. To make your display playful you can add a fuzzy owl or crafty crow.

Using black paper or fabric, bats can be traced and cut out to decorate your front door. They can be put on the front door via tape or any other method that you like. A bat template can be found for free on a lot of different websites. Spiders can be created with Styrofoam balls. These are spray painted black. Black pipe cleaners are used as legs, and voila! These Halloween door decorations have a life of their own, and boy do they look the part. For something a little more cartoony, a different color can be used – which also creates an intense look depending on the colors used.
