Fall: the air gets crisper the leaves change color, and new décor is in order. Fall is one of the best seasons to decorate your home for. There is an extensive selection of decorations that you can choose from. However, one of the most popular fall door décor options are wreaths. Over the years wreaths have become the number one decorative aspect in a home for the fall season. In fact, many will say they only use wreaths to decorate with. Instead of only decorating your home with wreaths this fall, here are a few options that will put your home in the fall spirit.
Basket of Apples
If apple picking happens to be your favorite part of fall, this is the perfect door décor for your home. Although it is a heavier décor option, it is one of the cutest options. Hang a basket filled with apples or even small pumpkins to bring the fall feel from the moment your guests arrive at your door.
Forget a welcoming wreath, use a welcome basket instead. Use a lightweight basket and fill it with fall flowers such as Oak Leaf Hydrangeas, Blue Star Amsonia, Beautyberry, and/or Sumac. These flowers bloom well in the fall weather and don’t need much care. Having them in a basket allows you to cover any pots or you can also use fake fall flowers for an arrangement that will remain beautiful all-year-round.
Nothing screams your excitement for fall quite like oversized wooden tags. Take wooden tags that are a bit oversized and write a simple message that will make your guests excited to enter your home. Choose messages such as “Give Thanks, Happy Fall, Welcome Home, or a simple Thank you”.
Have fun and make this decorative option a fun DIY. Take large letters that spell the word “Fall” and get creative. You can choose to decorate them with Halloween decal, fall décor, or even paint them bold colors that bring the fall vibes directly to your door. If you want to go a little more-subtle, consider painting them a warmer color such as rich burgundy, burnt orange, or even sage. These colors scream fall without being overbearing.
Pinecones are an epitome of fall. They fall from trees such like fall leaves so collecting them can become a family project. Collect a few pinecones and paint them colors of fall this will add an extra layer of color to your door while being a fun little décor object.
Wooden signs are great as they are rustic and easy to do. Purchase or cut a slice of wood and even use chalkboard paint or a twist of fun then write a cute sign on it and hang on your door. Your guests will be intrigued by this idea as it is easy to make but makes such a bold statement all at once. It is also an excellent way of having a bit of fall without adding color instead just a rustic touch.
After hanging your door décor, it is time to upgrade your entryway as well. Line your entryway with leaves or even small pumpkins to really make a statement. This will take your outdoor space to a completely new level. It will also share with your neighbors how excited you are for fall.
Pumpkins are great to use as fall decoration, especially small ones. Take a few small pumpkins tie them together with burlap or string and hang them up. You can also choose to paint them for a fun twist on a fall classic.
Last year’s rack can make the ultimate fall door décor. Take your garden rack apart and only use the head. Decorate the head with burlap, fall flowers, and even wheat. This will give you the ultimate fall feel as you are incorporating all the fall favorites in one. It’s the perfect rustic substitution for a wreath.
Monogram letters can always be fun, especially if you personalize them. Personalize them for the fall season by using fall colors or wrapping them in burlap. Burlap is super low maintenance, which is exactly what you want when you are using it for your outdoor space.
