We all collectively feel it – 2020 has brought the DFW community so much uncertainty throughout each season. Traditional fall events have been altered or cancelled, sports face major restrictions and being with our loved ones limited. But there’s one thing this year can’t stop: celebrating the season through fall door decor.
It may seem small in the grand scheme of things, but a little festive front door fun can go a long way in helping achieve a sense of peace and normal. From themed wreaths to carved pumpkins to spine-tingling design, here are some of our favorite ideas for fall door decor.
If you drive through your neighborhood, you will undoubtedly witness all kinds of wreaths on display. Head to your local Home Goods, Hobby Lobby or Target and buy a pre-made seasonal wreath. Feeling crafty yourself? DIY a wreath with leaves, plants or fall flowers from your garden or yard. Once you have your wreath ready, hang it on the front door to create a colorful and welcoming entry.
From Starbuck’s pumpkin spice latte to pumpkin-scented candles, the fall fruit is practically the mascot of fall. Aside from a traditional wreath, there is no better way to decorate your home than with pumpkins. Carving or painting pumpkins is a fun activity perfect for the whole family. Once they’re decorated, display your pumpkins proudly on your front porch.
Looking for a colorful way to express your admiration for fall? Plant or display fall flowers such as perennial sunflowers, chrysanthemums or snapdragons. They’ll add a colorful and fragrant touch to your doorway as your celebrate the season.
Farm stand baskets
For fans of our Fixer Upper friends down in Waco, give the entry of your home a rustic fall feel with farm-inspired decor. Consider arranging a farm stand basket filled with colorful fruit, leaves and dried corn stalks on your front porch. If you’re skeptical about leaving perishables such as pumpkins or gourds outside, this is a great alternative. You can use fake fruit and leaves that still give off a natural, autumn look without the rot.
Although Halloween may look different this year, decorating your front porch for spooky season will never go out of style. Transform your door into an entrance to a terrifying haunted house with fake cobwebs, plastic spiders, cauldrons and other frightening finds from places like Tuesday Morning, Walmart or Michaels.
