A Bloody Mess

I had a "Bloody" good time with this....

All you need for this project is wax paper, red paint, tape, scissors and a paint brush...

Lay wax paper out, preferably out on the lawn.

Splatter the red paint with your paint brush all over the wax paper and let it dry.

Cut the paper to fit your windows and tape them into place.
This photo was taken from inside the house.
If you have problems with solicitors....this just might deter them!

You may also want to add a few bloody handprints...

A little too creepy for my house, but so very cool. If I were trying to make a super scary haunted house, that would be on the top of my to do list!!

I have to tell you this is as great idea! I pinned this a few weeks ago but decided to not decorate my house this year and be scrooge and not even pass out candy. Well at 5:15 this evening I decided my entry way that was mostly glass left me too exposed. So I grabbed some wax paper and acrylic paint and made my version of your door.

Then I bought candy to give out and the door was soo scary that the small kids avoided our house...no matter how much I tried to coax them over.

I hope you dont' mind I wrote a blog post about it and put a link to your blog in my post.
