Halloween Door Keep Out

"Decorate your house with a spooky Halloween Door that says "Keep Out", warning all who approach that they don't know what lies beyond! Fun! I’ve seen a lot of fun decorated doors for Halloween. I almost decorated my garage door to look like a sharp-toothed monster last year! The best part about this Halloween door was how easy it was to make. Very few supplies required meant it was inexpensive too. Halloween is my favorite holiday, followed closely by Christmas. Decorating for Halloween is always a blast! "

Primary TechniqueOther


Materials List

  • Large cardboard box
  • Black and silver acrylic craft paint
  • Black creepy mesh or white spider web if you have a light colored door, use black, and vice versa
  • Round sponge applicator
  • Duct tape or double-sided tape *please read caution in notes!


  1. Cut cardboard box open so that it lies flat. Cut box into “planks of wood”.

  2. Use a large paintbrush to write KEEP on one of the planks and OUT on another. Use a lot of paint, then stand the plank upright and tap it on the work surface a few times so that the excess paint drips.

  3. Visit for full tutorial.
