Are you ready for another fun Halloween project that I shared as yet another guest post? Can you tell I needed a little motivation to get in a Halloween mood? Ha. Just keepin’ it real. This time I got to share this Halloween Door Hanging over at I Dig Pinterest a couple of weeks ago, and now it’s coming home. So if your door is looking a little bare, this might be the project for you!

Good morning! I’m Lisa Mabey from Mabey She Made It, a DIYcraft, and sewing blog. I’m so excited to be here at I Dig Pinterest today because I love so many things about this wonderful blog including her tips of pinning–such great advice there!

Today I’m sharing a Halloween Door Hanging that I created for our front door.

This was kind of a time-consuming project because I did all the letters differently, but it definitely wasn’t hard. Would you like to see how I did it?

You’ll need:

  • Chipboard squares
  • Chipboard letters
  • Black ink
  • White ink
  • Assorted Halloween scrapbook paper
  • Yellow and Orange paint
  • Crop-a-Dile
  • Wide ribbon for the top
  • Ribbon, string, and buttons for decorating the letters
  • Adhesives (Mod Podge and glue dots or hot glue gun)

While I’m not going to do a full tutorial for each letter, I’ll walk you through the basics of how I created the whole door hanging.

  1. Adhere your scrapbook paper to the front of your chipboard squares. Mine are 4″ square. Let dry, and trim any access.
  2. Ink your chipboard letters with Black ink using a sponge dauber or by rubbing your letters across an ink pad. I used a dye-based ink to achieve a more worn look, but you could use pigment ink as well. Let dry, then grunge up your letters with some White pigment ink on the edges.

  3. Tie ribbon or string around some of the letters as desired.
  4. Adhere the letters to the chipboard squares using glue dots or a hot glue gun.
  5. Add buttons, chipboard candy corn, paper, and other decorations to the squares as desired.Halloween Door Hanging | Mabey She Made It | #halloween #halloweendecor #candycorn #papercrafts @mabeyshemadeit
  6. Using a Crop-a-Dile or other strong hole punch, punch holes in each of the four corners of your chipboard squares.
  7. Tie the squares together using small lengths of twine or ribbon, and use a longer piece of twine to create a hanging loop at the top.
  8. Tie a wide ribbon bow at the top of the door hanging, and enjoy!
