Crisp, clean air. Cool nights. The crunch of fallen leaves under foot. All clues that fall is well on its way, and that it’s time to decorate! What better place to start than your front door?
On a Budget
If money is tight, despair not. You can still create a warm autumn welcome. If you have construction paper, for instance, you can make a wreath out of overlapping red, yellow, and brown paper cut into leaves. Tape it to the front door and you’ll be all set. Or why not rake the yard and stuff the leaves inside a scarecrow made from clothing in your closet? Straw is optional!
Okay, nature lovers! Fall, as you know, is a great time for color. Take a stroll outside and gather whatever outdoor elements strike your fancy. Surely you can find a handful of leaves, flowers, or twigs to fashion into a wreath, or to drape around the threshold of your door. Check out this flower-and-berry-festooned rake. Simple, yet bound to start a few conversations!
Over the Top
If fall is your favorite season, why not let it show? Bales of hay, pumpkins, gourds, corn, and whatever else tickles your fancy can be set up around the entry way. You can make your display as large as your yard will allow. You needn’t spend a fortune. Indeed, many setups only require a trip to the local pumpkin patch. You’ll be good to go.
