Halloween Door Decorating Contest: 

Looking for a way to add excitement to your Halloween? Why not participate in a Halloween Door Decorating Contest? These contests can be a lot of fun, and they are a great way to show off your creativity. In this blog post, we will give you some tips on how to win a Halloween Door Decorating Contest. We will also provide you with some ideas for spooky and festive decorations that will help you stand out from the competition!

First, let us tell you a Halloween story about Sandra.

Sandra had always loved Halloween. She loved the costumes, the decorations, and most of all, the candy. This year, she decided to participate in her neighborhood's Halloween door decorating contest. She spent hours picking out the perfect decorations and putting them up on her front porch.

The night of the contest arrived and Sandra was so excited to see everyone's entries. Unfortunately, when she got there, she was disappointed to see that she felt her decorations weren't as good as everyone else's. She quickly ran home, took everything off her front door, and put them away, feeling embarrassed.

The next day, Sandra woke up to find a note taped to her door. It was from her neighbors congratulating her on winning first place in the contest! They said that they had been so impressed by her creative decorations. Sandra was so surprised and happy that she had won!

This story goes to show that Halloween door decorating contests can be a lot of fun, but they can also be tricky. So how do you make sure that you win?

Here are some tips:

Be unique:

There are bound to be a lot of Halloween enthusiasts in your neighborhood, so it's important to make sure that your holiday decorations are unique. You want people to remember your house when they see it!

You don't want to have just the stereotypical Halloween decorations such as ghosts and witches though. Instead, try to think about how you can use ghosts and witches differently! For example, you could have a witch flying on a broomstick with ghosts chasing her. Or you could have a giant spiderweb with ghosts caught in it.

Another way to be unique for the decorating contest is to use a Halloween DoorFoto door wrap! DoorFoto is a company founded right here in the U.S.A. that makes athletic fabric, and machine washable door wraps that go right over your door in 28 seconds like a fitted bed sheet! We have over 3 pages of Halloween designs in our 1,800+ image selections on our website.


You could use this "Mystic Witch" DoorFoto as your main decoration because it is sure to catch your neighbors' eyes in the Halloween door decorating contest since it is definitely unique!


Pay attention to detail:

Another important tip is to pay attention to detail. This is what will really make your decorations stand out from the rest. Make sure that your Halloween door decorations are well-made and that they look professional.

One way to do this is to use high-quality materials. For example, if you are making a wreath, use real Halloween decorations instead of cheap plastic ones. If you are using DoorFoto door wraps, then you don't have to worry about this because they are made of high-quality, athletic fabric that is machine washable!

Another way to make sure your Halloween door decorations are well-made is to take your time when you are putting them up. Make sure that everything is straight and even. This will give your decorations a polished look that will impress the judges.

Be creative:

In addition to being unique, you also want to be creative with your Halloween door decorations. This is what will really make your house stand out from the rest.

One way to be creative is to think outside the box. For example, instead of just putting up a Halloween wreath, you could put up a Halloween wreath with lights. Or instead of just hanging Halloween decorations from your door, you could create a whole scene on your door.

Another way to be creative is to use DoorFoto door wraps! You can use them to create a whole scene on your door, or you can use them as a base for your Halloween decorations. For example, you could put up a DoorFoto door wrap and then put a Halloween wreath with lights right over it.

And this works since our fabric is so stretchy so a wreath hanger can be put on the door first, with a DoorFoto right over it! This "Customizable- Halloween Backdrop" would pair perfectly with a wreath with all of the blank space in the middle. DoorFotos and wreaths pair quite nicely, and both will boost your creativity points for the Halloween door decorating contest!

Pick a theme and go with it:

A great way to make your decorations stand out is to choose a theme and stick with it. Halloween is a holiday with endless possibilities, so there are plenty of themes to choose from. Some good ones are Halloween movies, Halloween characters, or Halloween scenes.

Once you have chosen your theme, make sure that all of your decorations go along with it. For example, if you are doing a Halloween movie theme, you could put up door decorations that are inspired by your favorite Halloween movie. Or if you are doing a Halloween character theme, you could put up door decorations that are inspired by your favorite Halloween character.

A timeless, yet highly changeable theme would be a haunted house. Everyone knows what a haunted house is, yet each one is different. This is a perfect theme to go all out with, and you can make it your own too! You could do a haunted house all about ghosts or a haunted house all about zombies.

Get as much help as you can:

Halloween decorations can be time-consuming, so it's important to get as much help as you can. Ask your friends and family members to pitch in and help you with the decorating. The more hands you have on deck, the better!

Having friends and family around will be fun too because this could be a fantastic bonding opportunity and a chance for you to get to know them better. If you are doing DIY decorations for your door, you can turn it into a group activity to make the decorations with you. Or, if you have store-bought decorations, it will be really neat to see where all of your friends and family think they should all go since everyone will have a different way to decorate!

Another great way to get help is to hire a professional Halloween decorator. This is a great option if you want your Halloween decorations to be truly unique and amazing. Halloween decorators will have all of the necessary supplies and knowledge to make your Halloween door decorations stand out from the rest.

Have fun:

The most important thing is to have fun! If you're not enjoying yourself, it will show in your decorations. So relax, let your creativity flow, and enjoy the process. Halloween only comes once a year, so make the most of it!


These are just a few tips to help you win your Halloween door decorating contest and have fun while doing so. Get creative, ask for help, and most importantly, enjoy yourself! With these tips, you're sure to create amazing Halloween door decorations that will wow your family, friends, and neighbors. Good luck!
