When we painted our old door this summer, a fall idea started to take shape. I mean, if you have an orange door, why not make it into a Jack-o-lantern in October, right?
I had originally planned to make the face out of black paper, but Jeff offered to create a more polished version out of some of our scrap plywood. First, I sketched out the shape and size on some wrapping paper to get an idea of scale.
Next up, we made sure we liked the shapes with a mock up on our door.
(We used loops of painters tape for this step.)
Spray primer and glossy black paint created the final Halloween look. We used heavy duty double-stick tape to mount the wood shapes to our door.
We're all ready for kids in costume saying, "trick or treat." Jeff even cut a hole in the 'nose' for our peephole!
