Interactive Halloween Door

Our PTO is throwing a Halloween Door Decorating Contest again this year. I won the contest a few years ago and decided to step it up again. Here is a link to my posts if you missed them.

My door is inspired by Beethoven's 5th Symphony. "Fate Is Knocking At Our Door..."

Beethoven appears as the grim reaper. The music for the fate motive is printed and color coded to match the Boomwhackers. The Boomwhackers are held in xylo-tote and large binder clips. The clips are hung with 3M Command Hooks.
The door is a hit with students. I hear them stopping by before school, afterschool, and even sneaking during the day to come play Beethoven's 5th. I'm sure I may be driving my neighboring teachers crazy, but it makes me smile every time.

Here's a video of the door in action:
