Hi friends! Halloween is just around the corner, and up until yesterday, I still had my summer wreath hanging on the front door -- horrors! Well, it has been hot lately, but still, that definitely had to change. So, I made a quick trip to the Dollar Store and another quick trip to Michael's, and I found just about everything I needed to make this Easy Halloween Door Hanger. It only took me a few minutes to make, and it cost less than $10 dollars!
I've been wanting to make a Halloween door decoration that said BOO for a long time, but I couldn't find any letters in the size that I needed. So when I was at the Dollar Store, I spied some large felt spider webs and a big old bow with a spider theme, and my Spidey senses immediately told me that I could make something with these items.
Actually, my Spidey senses told me I could make a lot of stuff with the merchandise there. Don't you just love that place?!
Anyway, I bought the spider webs and a bunch of other things, and I found the wood letters and craft paint at Michael's. And then, I came home and went to work making the spider web door hanger.
Supplies for Halloween Door Hanger
- 3 large felt spider webs
- Wood letters
- Fine gauge wire
- Wire cutters
- Neon green paint
- Large Halloween bow
I wanted the letters to really stand out, so I bought some neon green craft paint. It took a few coats to get the exact shade I was looking for, but I really wanted them to be nice and super bright.
I used a very fine-gauge wire to attach the spider webs together. I didn't want to use hot glue for this part because it's still warm here, and I didn't want the door decoration to come apart.
I placed the purple webs at the top and bottom and used the white web in the middle.
I used Tacky Glue to attach the letters to the webs, and I used the wire twist tie, which was already on the back of the bow, to attach the bow to the top spider web. Then, I looped some Halloween ribbon through the twist tie and hung this from the metal hanger on the door.
We have a very tall door, so this Boo sign is really the perfect fit. And, the colors stand out very well against the dark door. I also like that there's a little space in the web for the peep hole.
Like I said, this Halloween door hanger only cost me a few bucks, and it only took a few minutes to make. Not bad -- not bad at all!
Have you decorated your front door for fall or Halloween yet?

My husband used to grumble whenever we went there, but now he likes to look around too. It's addicting! 🙂
That is so cute, Dee.....or really "creepy" if your kids around! 🙂 I haven't been to the $Store in quite awhile, but I need to go. Even The Man likes to snoop around in that store!
