This DIY Halloween door decoration is free, easy, and fun to make, and requires no storage! It is also a great kids Halloween craft using materials that are recycled or found in nature! Who doesn’t love paper crafts and nature crafts?
I made 4 color versions of the “Flying Lessons” sign free Halloween printables for you to download at the end. There are many ways to use just this sign alone: on a table or a shelf, on a door as an instant Halloween door decoration, or as wall art!
Each element in this Halloween door decoration is quite easy to make. The witches shoes and broom will only take about 1 to 2 hours total if you have the materials ready. Because I have detailed tutorial and video for each one, I will give a brief description and link to each tutorial below.
Here is another version of this Halloween door decoration using a boxwood wreath! Flying witch DIY Halloween wreath tutorial here.

Materials and tools to make an Easy & Free DIY Halloween Door Decoration:
( Some of the helpful resources are affiliate links. Full disclosure here. )
- paper (to print the sign, download at the end), construction paper like these, or these (to make witches shoes), some twigs and branches (to make withes broom)
- scissors, glue, scotch clear tape, duct tape, strings or twine
- optional: a door wreath hanger
Step 1: make a witches broom for the DIY Halloween Door Decoration
The witches broom is made from branches and twigs in our garden. DIY magical witches broom tutorial here.
If you could find a stick with some tiny side branches on it to make the broomstick (see photo above), it would provide good places for hanging the sign and the witches legs!
Step 2: make a “flying lessons” Halloween sign
The “Flying Lessons” sign is made from a free printable design taped or glued to a piece of cardboard cut to a slightly smaller size than the paper. I used 8.5×11 paper and 8×10 cardboard. You can download the printable at the end.
Step 3: make witches shoes
The witches shoes are made from two piece of construction paper, so easy and fun! Witches shoes Halloween paper craft tutorial here.
Step 4: assemble the Halloween door decoration
Arrange the broom, sign, and boots on the boxwood wreath to figure out how long each thread or twine needs to be.
Tape some threads onto the back of the sign, and use a clothespin attached to a string to hold the witches shoes.
Next hang each element onto the broomstick. Tie some twine onto the broomstick so it is easy to hang it on a door wreath hanger.
I made the Flying Lessons Halloween printable downloads in 4 colors: orange, golden yellow, green, and white. The pdf has four pages.
