Here are my 5 tips for decorating your front door for Fall.
It’s 2020 and this is the first time I really spent time making our front door look decent. My lackluster front door has been looking truly sad all year. It truly was a reflection of 2020 with dead ferns and cobwebs all over the wreath and front door. I decided it was time to address this situation. I’m sharing my 5 tips for decorating your front door for Fall. This whole refresh took me no more than 15 minutes.
Let’s start with the BEFORE
At least my dead ferns finally got thrown away! If you look closely, there are spider webs all over the wreath. I was tempted to leave it for Halloween!
Tip 1: Change out the wreath
Instead of a wreath, try hanging a basket and fill it with faux florals or dry ones like I did here. I dried some of my hydrangeas and filled the basket. I didn’t have enough so I went and cut more and just filled the basket until I was happy with it.
I think it came out super cute! To dry limelight hydrangeas, just cut and place them in a vase. I cut some to just dry in this basket. The colors are so appropriate for Autumn with the subtle purple hues and greens. I found similar hanging baskets for a great deal and they come in a pair. I love using hanging baskets in a bathroom for towels or even a playroom for books and other items.
Tip 2: Layer outdoor rugs or mats
I always keep my “welcome” mat out but I decided to layer it on top of another outdoor rug. The added color adds a little something to the space.
Tip 3: Add plants!
Every year, I add a variety of mums. I was too late purchasing them at Costco so I picked some up at my local Kroger as they were discounted. Instead of large mums for my planters, I bought this pretty variety of foliage. I think it’s a nice change from the annual mums with the deep purples and greens that coordinate with the dried hydrangeas.
Tip 4: Throw in some pumpkins
I picked up a couple of heirloom pumpkins because the green and pink hues are so beautiful. I retrieved my faux pumpkins from the storage closet. I painted a bunch of these a few years ago using some chalk paint.
Tip 5: Give that front porch a nice sweep or powerwash
I love it. This was such a quick project and it looks infinitely more welcoming.
It was a simple refresh.
My front door is ready for Fall! I spent $33 on plants and pumpkins and I’m calling that a win. With everything crazy that’s been going on this year, using my creativity at home has brought me so much joy and peace.
