Cute, Not Creepy, Halloween: Mummy Door Decor

One of the best ways to let your neighbors know you are ready for Halloween is to decorate your front door. While many prefer the traditional fall/Halloween themed wreath, there are other, more dramatic ways to express Halloween enthusiasm using your door. 

We found this cute mummy door decor idea on the Honey & Fitz blog. It is perfect for decorating any door at an affordable price, maybe even cheaper than those holiday wreaths. 

Supplies:

4 Rolls of White Streamers - cut into strips wider than door, randomly overlap when hanging

2 Sheets of White Paper (computer or construction) - cut into 2 large circles

1-2 Sheets of Black Construction Paper- cut into 2 small circles

1 Roll of Clear Scotch Tape (may also want clear double sided tape) - Use double sided tape to help streamers stay positioned on front of door and to tape eyes on. Use single sided Scotch or packing tape to secure ends down on the inside of door. 

Because this door has big ole' eyes and lacks a ghoulish jig-jagged mouth, it makes your door look friendly, not scary. It would also be a great way to decorate your classroom door for a Halloween party.
