Posted on September 20, 2017 by

Wreaths aren’t just for Christmas! Greet your trick-or-treaters this Halloween with spooky fall door decorations. If you’re a book lover, you can even display your literary favorites in the process. We’ve rounded up the best bookish ideas for fall door decorations that you could easily install in your own home this season. We love these festive entryways, as they both welcome the season and recall some of our favorite fiction tales. Check out the full list below!


1. Did the Sorting Hat place you in Gryffindor? Then this Harry Potter wreath is perfect for your Gryffin-door.

 Of course, you could easily change the colors and show pride for any Hogwarts house.


2. To welcome guests to your Lord of the Rings-themed fall party: “No admittance except on party business.”

 Not all Halloween decorations need to be scary!


5. For those fans of The Shining, here’s an ominous door decal.

We like this decal because it’s easy to install and remove, while still being plenty spooky. You could create your own sign with craft paper, too!


6. Here’s another terrifying Stephen King favorite.

Maybe think twice about this one if you have young children in your neighborhood.


7. This friendly Dracula decoration is more interested in making friends than sniffing their blood!

Too cute to pass up!


8. Here’s a lovely door setup fit for Ichabod Crane and other residents of Sleepy Hollow.

The subtle touches, like the gravestone and quote signs, make this decor a hit even with those unfamiliar with the story.


9. “Quoth the Raven ‘Nevermore.'”

The Raven door


Any of Edgar Allan Poe’s spooky poems or stories would serve as excellent fall decor inspiration, but The Raven is perhaps the most famous.


10. When Cthulhu calls…

Ask yourself if you really want to answer!


11. Your guests will think Sherlock Holmes moved in!

It’s hard to believe, but this photo is actually inside someone’s house! Craft foam was used to create fake bricks, but you could easily do this outside on your front door instead.
