To give your doormat this Halloween update, start by downloading the skull family template. Print out as many faces as you have people in household. Use an X-Acto knife or craft knife to cut out faces, eyes, noses, and mouths. Then, arrange the faces as you want them to appear on your mat, adding cut-out letters if you wish. Attach paper to the doormat with folded-up painter's tape on the back. Then, starting with a little paint at a time, dab paint around the stencil with a foam brush. Continue until the entire mat is covered, and let dry completely before you remove the stencils.

Decorating your yard or home for Halloween is becoming increasingly popular and a big part of the holiday itself. Halloween Express has everything from spooky Halloween home decor to commercial grade Halloween Decorations and Props. Halloween decorations can turn your yard into a ghoulish graveyard, a chilling cemetery or an evil yard haunt. No matter what your decorating theme, no haunted home or yard is complete without the special effects of a fog machine and chilling soundtrack. A thin layer of mist slithering along the ground and that sinister sound raising the hair on the back of your neck is the perfect finishing touch. Give your neighbors something to talk about by turning your yard into a landscape of terror.


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.
