Halloween wreaths are popular door decorations. Wreaths can be purchased pre-made, or you can get into the spirit and create your own. The possibilities for your Halloween wreath are endless. Be sure to put all of your creativity to work should you decide to make your own wreath. Some people like to keep it simple and use only Halloween colors to create a basic wreath, while others prefer spookier wreaths, such as those with bloody hands creeping out of the back or tiny spiders crawling around.
Spider webs are easy to make and wonderful for the entire family. You can easily make a spider web, complete with a spider companion, using only a few materials such as construction paper, cotton balls and strings. Tape them to the door until Halloween is over.

How about adding a skull to your door? This is yet another easy decoration the entire family can make to add lots of Halloween appeal to the area.

Would you prefer a jack-o-lantern or even a ghost? Again, the possibilities are endless so let your imagination soar to determine how you’ll decorate your door.
