Be inspired by this colorful fall front door decor you can easily create in no time using existing items and a couple of DIYs.
It's that time of year. Fall decorating and the front porch is the first place I like to work on.
In addition, today I'm joining a group of talented bloggers in a Celebrate Fall Home Tours Blog Hop hosted by Leen of Sand Dollar Lane. All this week we will be sharing decor ideas from fall porches, entryways, kitchens, living rooms, and more.
DIY Fall Front Porch Decorations
This year our front door has a simple fall swag that I made on a tobacco base. I also put together this easy fall leaf garland to frame the top of the doorway.
How to Make a Fall Leaf Garland
All you need is some artificial leaves, heavy wire, a couple of fall picks, and a mini pumpkin pick.
- Measure out two lengths of wire from the middle of the doorway out to the sides.
- Poke the wire through each leaf and thread them on the wire.
- Once they are in place use a little hot glue to attach each leaf to the wire.
4. Attach the garland to the doorway using nails or hooks.
5. Wire on the mini pumpkin and fall picks in the center.
Next, I removed some of the end-of-season flowers from our planters and replaced them with orange mums and faux pumpkins. I kept the neutral green trailing plant and the pretty purple tradescantia. I think the purple foliage looks good with the orange flowers, don't you?
A couple more pumpkins in neutral colors and basic black lanterns are scattered at the base of the planters.
The final touches include a wooden fall harvest sign on the right and a dark glass amber bottle filled with some pretty foliage. Welcome Fall!
