$4 Do It Yourself Monster Door – Great for Halloween!

Posted by on Sep 27, 2017

My cute neighbor put out a call for decorated doors that she can show on her upcoming segment on Studio 5. So how could I NOT respond!? And, in true Mamas fashion, I knew I had to do it on the cheap. So I headed to my local dollar store. Check out how easy it is below!

Supplies list:

  • Two different sizes of paper plates (any colors you choose)
  • Square paper plates or white rectangle gift bags
  • Poster board (any color you’d like)
  • Painters tape (I just used what I already had)
  • Poster putty (or whatever you want to use to stick stuff onto your door)

I put my poster board on with my poster putty and then cut the “hair” to go around my peephole. I then stuck on my bigger paper plates, then the smaller paper plates onto those for the eyeballs. I used my frog tape for the mouth and then used the rectangle gift bags for teeth. And that’s it! Took less than 15 minutes and only $4 at the dollar store!

You can make this as fancy or as simple as you want. We added a bow to make it a girl monster and I liked the idea of eyebrows so I just cut some of the extra pieces of poster board.

What are YOUR easy decorating ideas?
