Frankie Door

Happy Halloween!
I know all of you are just as obsessed with Pinterest as me right?  I can spend hours on the site. There are so many fun ideas. When I came across this Frankenstein door I knew I could easily and cheaply create one myself with my KNK (digital die cutting machine).
I would imagine you have most of these supplies already in your stash.  All I had to buy was the green tablecloth and black posterboard.

Supplies Needed:

Black Posterboard
Black cardstock
White cardstock
Googly eyes (red cardstock)
Black pipe cleaners
I used KNK studio to create the cutting files for the eyes, spider, scar, mouth and teeth.  To create the cutting files I used simple shapes, circles and rectangles, that are already built into the software.  For the scar all I did was create a large rectangle and then placed equally sized smaller rectangles on top and welded them together. I just freehand cut random “V” shapes out of the posterboard to create the hair.
A couple of googly eyes and pipe cleaners for legs and your spider is all set.  I pulled the back off the eyes and replaced with red cardstock to make the eyes red. 
A simple project that really stands out from the street!

Even though the shapes are quite basic, you can download the actual cutting files (to get the relative dimensions I used)

I just discovered how to do file sharing on my blog.  Please let me know if you have problems downloading these files.
