Easy DIY Mummy Front Door Decoration for Halloween

Do you love or hate Halloween? I love Halloween. My sister always hosted a big Halloween party for her kids and she went all out with fortune-tellers and haunted houses. I carried on the tradition with parties but alas, my son is too old now.

I don’t care, I still like Halloween. I’m sharing some inexpensive ways to get your home ready for trick or treaters (even if they can’t come up to the door all the way).

This mummy door is a quick and easy way to say your house is open for Halloween. I am still trying to use up a bunch of left over pieces of burlap. This is a great project for using leftover fabric, but if you don’t want to keep your door decoration up for a long time it could be done with toilet paper. I hope you like it.

You don’t need much for this craft.

Steps to Create Your Mummy Door

The first step is to measure the width of your door. Next, cut strips of your fabric to match the width. You could easily do this with white fabric, muslin or burlap.

As soon as you cut the strips you simply put a command strip or a piece of a sticky tape at each end and tack it to the door. Place each strip at a slight angle so it has the illusion of being wrapped.

Once you have the desired coverage you tuck the eyeballs in under a fold of fabric. I decided to add some eyelashes to my eyeballs, which I made from coloring a strip of burlap black and then cutting slits.

That’s all it takes. It’s a really inexpensive and easy way to add some Halloween to your front door. I’m not the craftiest person, so I try to focus on the simple ones. 😁 My husband said “I like it better than the old lady hat“, my last door craft.

  2. Andrea, this is such a cute and adorable way to decorate a front door — love it! Plus, I love how fast, inexpensive and simple it is to do. I’ve pinned it as an idea to make as a kit and mail to my adult sons — one who just bought an 100-year old row house in Philly, the other in a penthouse in Manhattan. Just gotta pick up some of those big eyeballs. Will be great for their front doors and not require storage afterwards.
