I made this scary door monster as a last minute door decoration for a kids’ haunted house! I made it in about an hour, and I’m hanging it on my own door for Halloween trick-or-treat, so it will get double use. Plus, it cost me only $2 to make (for the red plastic table cover), since I already had the cardboard, white spray paint, and acrylic paints.

The monster door decoration looked creepy with neon eyes. (I used neon acrylic paints after spray painting the teeth and eyes white.) Before hanging the monster with duct tape, however, I attached the red table cover to the metal door frame with heavy duty magnets. Then, I cut it into "bloody" ribbons that hung from the monster's fangs!
The monster's face was easy to make! I used the circular plastic base of a huge cupcake holder I own as a guide to make the eyes and the tops of the two big fangs. (You can just use any large circle that you can easily trace.) I then freehand drew the fangs; it doesn't need to be perfect! Using heavy duty kitchen shears, I quickly and easily cut the shapes out and painted them.
I love the drama of this easy door decoration. Plus, I made it in no time, so it's perfect for all of you last minute Halloween decorators out there!
Have a safe and happy Halloween from the Party Girl!
