5 Ways to Add a Touch of Autumn to Your Front Door

by kacey (follow)

Fall is here, and you’re feeling the autumn spirit! But your front door certainly isn’t… There it is, looking bland and sad that it’s been left out of one of the most loved times of the year.

It’s not too late to make your front door look marvelous for the season. Here are five quick and easy crafts and tips to bring the fall fever to the focal point of your home.

Shoulda Put a Wreath On It


The wreath: the staple item of decorators everywhere. Over the past few years, though, the wreath has become a powerhouse of an item! But if you’ve ever looked at them in stores, your hopes and dreams might be shattered by their cost. Ouch!

The good news is they’re simple to make! From beautiful burlap wreaths to ones made of wood, the possibilities are endless. With this one small item, your fall decorating can be complete.

Fall Plant Power


Even though it may be fall, don’t underestimate the beauty of some potted plants. You don’t need to have a green thumb to pull together two autumn-inspired urns that will frame your front door.

All you will need are planting boxes or urns, some good soil, fertilizer, and the plants you want to use to decorate. Some great fall plants include chrysanthemums, asters, coral-bells, ornamental grasses, verbena and sedum. These plants all beautiful options that will last well into the fall. Ornamental cabbages and kale are unique and will add a special flare to your decorations!

Deck The Door


Gone are the days where garland was only for winter holidays. Decking out your door for fall is easy and maintenance free with fall garlands. Look for broomcorn, corn stalks or man-made garland with fall coloring to string around your door.

Handy tools include a hammer and some tacks if you’re pinning your garland up around your entryway. If you don’t feel like using a hammer, thumb tacks and some glue will work for lighter weight items.

Get Twiggy With It


Monogram Letter Random Small Tree Branches = Love. Grab a monogram wooden letter from a craft store, or make your own. You’ll need a glue gun as well. Then get out there and forage! You’ll need smaller size twigs, about half an inch or smaller in diameter for this craft.

When you think you have enough to cover the letter, sit down with your monogram letter and glue gun. Measure the twigs to cover the front part of the letter when running horizontal or vertical. Just snip the branch to the desired length, glue down, and let dry. In no time, you’ll have a monogram letter with a fall feel to hang on your door!

This craft is great for kids because it uses fine motor skills to place the pieces, and they can help hunt for twigs. Be sure to supervise around sharp objects and the glue gun!

Pull Your Porch Together!

Who says your front door has to get all of the pampering? Tie in the whole fall theme with your front porch. If you’re willing to go all-out and spend some extra time, you can really make your entire front porch a focal piece for your house.

Hay bales, pumpkins and a cute little scarecrow set to the side of your door is simple and welcoming to all who come over! Wrap the railing with garland or orange lights for a tasteful and cute decoration.

Whether you’re in love with mums and pumpkins or burlap and cornstalks, your front door is your creative canvas for autumn. Get out there and have fun!
