All you need are a few simple supplies to create these fun DIY Halloween Doors. Choose from a One-Eyed Monster, Frankenstein, Mummy, Ghost or create your own.
We loved the Jack-O-Lantern face on the Halloween stairs that we created last year, so we decided to take it a little further and create monsters throughout the house. They are made with simple supplies – paper and Duck Tape.
We created an One-Eye Monster, Frankenstein, Mr. Mummy and Ghost. Let me show you how easily you can create your own –
DIY Halloween Doors Supplies
- Duck Tape – we used black and white
- Duck Tape Sheet (pictured below)
- Paper – White (ghost), Green (Frankenstein), Blue or Purple (monster), Black (mummy) and craft paper or heavy paper for templates
- X-ACTO Knife
- Eyes – store bought or make your own – we did both
- Adhesive Roller (not shown)
The first thing we did is create all the pieces to add to the monsters – the eyes, hair, mouth, etc. The Duck Tape Sheet was super easy to use, we just added it directly to the craft paper. I think you could also trace the shapes you need, cut them out, then peel the back off and stick it to the paper for the door.
Then we traced out the circles for the eyes.
Next came the white pieces, we added strips of white Duck Tape to the craft paper, very slightly overlapping them.
Then used a plate for a template.
After the eyes were all done, we repeated the same process using the black Duck Tape for Frankenstein’s hair.
Then cut out the triangles to form the hair.
We used the same method for the ghost face. Then flipped it over and drew the face on the back of the paper, then cut it out.
After all the pieces were made, then it was time to start putting together the doors. We measured each door individually, and cut the paper to length, add a few inches to the length to wrap over top of the door and secure it with Duck Tape.
For the Mummy we used the white Duck Tape and added strips across the paper.
After we hung the paper on the door, then the door handle area was cut out with an X-ACTO knife.
We hung Mr. Mummy on the door to the entry. His eyes were made using the method we showed.
For the One-Eyed Monster, we used a large plate for the template for his eye and a smaller black circle on the inside. The mouth was made the same way we made Frankenstein’s hair – first the black, then we made the teeth and attached them on with adhesive roller.
Frankenstein welcomes visitors to our home. He has the 2 googly eyes we bought at the dollar store, his hair and mouth are both made with black Duck Tape that we added to craft paper and cut out.
The ghost is more friendly than spooky, I think. But I love how he turned out. His face was made the same as the other pieces.
