Front Door Decorating for Autumn

Twigs, fruit, and plants are so interesting on their own that they often need few embellishments to become a wonderful focal point. Collect seed pods, grasses, and other natural elements during fall cleanup. Good plants for fall decorating include American bittersweet, beautyberry, globe amaranth, globe thistle, hydrangea, maidengrass, and Sweet Annie.

    Autumn Front Door Decor

    Celebrate the season with a simple garland and an autumnal wreath fashioned from natural materials. This wreath’s base is made from a section of a tree trunk whose center had rotted away. Miniature Indian corn, chartreuse moss, and oak leaves complete the harvest look.

    Using Collected Bits of Nature to Decorate

    Use glue to adhere maple seedpods, twigs, acorn caps, and dried reeds for creating letters on orange kraft paper for the garland. Enlist kids to help in collecting the materials and creating the letters.

    Fall Front Door Décor

    A garland framing the door can be as simple as a long, dried vine collected from the garden and attached to the door frame for a casual, rustic feel.

    Fall Wreath with Northern Sea Grass

    Here, sheaths of Northern sea oats were hot-glued onto a wreath form along with hollowed out dried gourds planted with hens-and-chicks succulents and pansies for color.
