We don’t do a lot of fall decorating, but I do like to make our front door festive for visitors. Since we’ve been downsizing, I didn’t want to buy Halloween decorations that would go back in a box after the season was over. Instead, I decided to focus on natural fall decorating ideas for the door.
Natural Fall Decorating Ideas for the Door
love decorating with nature. I spend so much time outside enjoying the woods and the leaves this time of year that it just feels right to decorate with the things that make me happy. There are a lot of different ways you can decorate your door using nature. A lot will depend on what you have available in your area.
Since I live in farm country, it was very easy for me to get a bale of hay. I have to be careful with it since I’m allergic to hay, but the door just doesn’t seem festive without at least one bale of hay. We have pick your own pumpkin patches in our area as well, so it only took a moment to find a pumpkin. After the holiday, I will cut up the pumpkin for pumpkin pie filling or pumpkin bread for Thanksgiving. We’ll toast some of the seeds and toss out the rest for the ducks and chickens to enjoy.
I love adding flowers to our doorway. Since the nights are getting down into the 40s now, and it’s not unusual to get frost in October, I decided to go with cold hardy flowers. If you have warmer temperatures in your area, you could use any flower in fall colors. I think the Asters and Mums I chose go well with the other natural decorations.
I was hoping to find some dried corn stalks to flank each side of the door, but it’s a bit too early for those here. If I can find them in a few weeks, I will bundle up some of them and put some on each side of the door. I did manage to find a few ears of dried Indian corn to set on the hay.
Despite my allergies, I was able to get out and enjoy a beautiful fall day to decorate our front door. FLONASE® Allergy Relief is an over-the-counter nasal spray that offers 24-hour relief of nasal congestion, runny nose, sneezing, itchy nose, and itchy, watery eyes.
