“BOO” DOOR DEOCRATION
Skip the traditional orange and black altogether with this pop of greenery. Just shelter the preserved moss from the elements if you can.
BLACK TWIG WREATH
Up your curb appeal with this ghoulish decoration: Spray-paint a grapevine wreath black. Then glue on a few twigs from the yard, making sure they follow the same direction. Add a mini pumpkin, plastic spiders or cobwebs as an extra scare tactic.
WITCH DOOR DECORATION
Good witch or bad, this simple silhouette comes courtesy of a free template. Don’t forget the sparkly stars that complete the airborne illusion.
BLACK TULLE WREATH
Start with a tiny wreath form, since the fluffy fabric will fill out fast. This version features ribbon roses, but a giant orange bow would look just as bold.
BLACKENED ROSES WREATH
Darken your door with a moldering wreath straight from the crypt. Craft it fast with ebony flowers, a stuffed raven, bone-white branches, and a gnarled grapevine base.
BAT DOOR DECORATIONS
Why stop at the front door? Extend a cloud of bats across the porch and into the entryway for an even bigger statement.
This easy wall hanging only requires a few ingredients — a foam wreath form, black yarn, and decorating spiders and crows.
Use a square base (or picture frame!) for an angular arrangement of fall foliage. Added bonus: You can leave this festive decoration up through Thanksgiving.
