5. Magnetic Spiders: These creepy-crawly guys look great on the door, but would also be a scary surprise for your guests if you place ’em all over your house for your Halloween party. (via Leigh Laurel Studios)

6. Bloodshot Eyeball Wreath: Obviously there is nothing scarier than a bulging, bloodshot eyeball. But secretly, we kind of love the extra bit of color the red gives this gory wreath. (via A Pretty Life)

7. Black Cat Wreath: For something more on the cute side, add some ears and pipe cleaner whiskers to a fur-wrapped foam wreath. Me-wow! (via Shaken Together Life)

8. Monster Door: Ready to turn your front door into a cute but “scary” monster? Just use two plates for the eyes and tape for the mouth and hang some streamers for hair. Rawr, indeed. (via Modern Day Moms)

9. Yarn-Wrapped Wreath: Give your door some Halloween flair with this easy project that’s perfect for a “crafternoon.” All that wrapping might take you a couple hours, so start putting together your Netflix queues with some frightening flicks. (via Happily Intended)

10. Spider Web: Create this crawly wreath with chopsticks, twine and lots of plastic spiders. Even though you know it’s plastic, it’ll still make your skin crawl. (via Go Make Me)

11. Skeleton: Take a little inspiration from The Nightmare Before Christmas’s Jack Skellington this Halloween. All you’ll need is a sheet and some black duct tape to get the look. (via Events to Celebrate)

12. All-Season Wreath: If you’ve only got time to make one wreath, this is the wreath to make. The grapevine and moss are the perfect backdrop for cobwebs and spiders for Halloween, and then you can switch it out for Thanksgiving and Christmas decor. (via Hello Natural)

13. Bat Swarm: Cut out a bunch of bats using felt or black paper and then tape them all over the front door and house. Cleanup is minimal, and the look at night is pretty amazing. (via Country Living)

14. Spider Wreath: This looks pretty sophisticated for a project that costs under $5, don’t you think? That bright pop of green showing behind the spider legs makes us shiver. (via Paper and Fox)

15. Pinecone Monster: Pinecones aren’t just for Christmas decor — especially when you paint them green and add some sharp teeth. Well, he has fangs, but this guy doesn’t look too terribly ferocious. (via Craftaholics Anonymous)
