Woohoo! Today is the day that I get to show you my Halloween themed version of the Seasonal Character Door Hanger. It was so fun to actually get my hands on some power tools and build this project on my own!
You can build and style your own too!
If you enjoy creating projects, The Home Depot offers Workshops at all of their locations for do-it-yourselfers of all ages and experience levels. There are three types of Workshops offered:
- Do-It-Yourself (DIY)
- Do-It-Herself (DIH)
As a memory refresher, here is the original image supplied by The Home Depot for this project. If you sign up for a workshop, customers can learn how to build décor projects, how to make easy home repairs and how to operate tools through demonstrations and step-by-step instructions.

OK. Here is mine.
I decided that I wanted to create a neutral skeleton look for my Seasonal Character Door Hanger to go with our light & neutral decor.
I’m not sure if this cute guy looks more like a skeleton, a ghost, or a jack-o-lantern, but he is sure is happy and welcoming. Maybe he needs some teeth?
The building process was super easy. (Click here to sign up to make your own at your local Home Depot store.) After putting this together, I stained the wood with a combo of Minwax Jacobean and Classic Gray. Next, I dry brushed the entire thing with white chalk paint. Then, with a pencil, I freehand the face and filled it in with a thicker application of my dry brushing technique, which gave it an airy, ghosty feel.
I added my favorite black and cream ticking fabric around the top of the hat brim to finish off the look.
Isn’t this guy a cutie? If I wouldn’t get crazy looks, I would consider leaving him up year round.
