7 Fall Door Decorating Ideas That Go Beyond Wreaths

Fall Door Decorating Ideas 

Create a warm, welcoming entrance with these beautiful fall decorating ideas for your front door. The first thing guests see when they approach your home is your front door. Make it the focal point of your fall front porch display and make a welcome first impression by showing your love for fall. Embrace fall door decor with brilliantly colored leaves, Indian corn, pumpkins and other natural elements. For an even more eye-catching display, think past the traditional fall wreath and decorate your front door with an overflowing basket of seasonal flowers, decorative signage or a simple envelope. These creative ideas for fall front door decor use unexpected elements to deliver stunning fall curb appeal.

1. Rustic Fall Door Decor

Combine items gathered from flea markets with natural elements to decorate your front door with farmhouse-style fall decor. Here, a galvanized metal funnel serves as a simple fall door decoration with vibrant fall foliage. Framing the entrance, a tall bundle of corn stalks and an antique ladder covered with colorful feed sacks add height and significance to the scene. A variety of salvaged finds create pedestals that elevate the pumpkin and create a more dynamic look.

2. Rack Fall Door Decoration

Remove the head of an old wire rack as an easy fall door decoration. Place small sprigs of dried berries or bittersweet between the ropes to add color and texture. Choose fake stems for decor that will last for years or collect branches from your yard. Tie a length of rope underneath and tie into a bow for a pretty finish.

3. Approach with autumn leaves

Surround your front door with branches with leaves that show off the classic colors of fall. Wait until the trees around your home begin to show fall color, then cut back a few branches with lots of leaves. Use a screwdriver or drill to poke holes in the top of the large pumpkin to support the branches. Place a pumpkin on either side of your door, and layer small pumpkins or gourds for fall color.

4. Hang a fall basket

Think outside the basic wreath form to create one-of-a-kind fall door decor. A wicker basket, for example, can hold branches or flowers for a colorful hanging decoration. Fill the basket with bittersweet, Chinese lantern stems, natural grasses, sunflowers or branches with bright leaves. After hanging the basket, make your fall front door more inviting by arranging chairs or stools around the front stoop. Top with fall themed pillows or pumpkins for more seasonal flair.

5. Fall door sign

Try this easy DIY fall decor idea to welcome guests and the season into your home. Turn a basic wooden picture frame into a handmade chalkboard sign that you can use to make happy greetings. Paint the frame your desired color, then coat the glass panel with chalkboard paint. Once the paint is dry, reattach the frame and hot glue tape to hang.

6. Outdoor fall decor

When you open your door for fall, don't forget to decorate the surrounding area as well. For this outdoor fall decor idea, use a simple wooden board and a few ears of Indian corn to create a wooden sign next to your front door. Hot glue ears of corn to wood to create the word "fall". To make a hanger, drill holes in the top and knot rope through the openings. Mount the sign using removable outdoor hooks 

7. Fall bushel basket decoration

A basic wooden bushel basket forms the basis for this fall door decor idea. You can paint the basket or leave it in its natural wood. Place the circle of floral foam on the bottom to secure the arrangement. Fill the basket with an assortment of branches and stems (real or fake) that bring out the reds, oranges and yellows characteristic of autumn. Place some small pumpkins among the leaves and finish by tying a ribbon in the middle of the basket. Hang your door using lengths of burlap.
