Butcher paper, wrapping paper, or mailing paper

Markers or poster paints and paintbrush

Removable tape

Old magazines

Craft glue

How to Make the Decorate a Door Craft

Step 1: Measure your bedroom door. Cut out a rectangle the same dimensions as your door from paper.

Step 2: Cut out a hole for the doorknob.

Step 3: Use markers or poster paints to decorate the paper. (For example, you could create an underwater scene, a skiing scene, or a giant "Do Not Disturb" sign.) Or, if you don't want to draw or paint a scene, make a giant collage for your door decoration. Cut out pictures from old magazines and glue them to the paper, covering the whole sheet.

Step 4: After the paint or glue has dried, tape the collage to your door.
