If you are looking to change up your door décor for autumn or Halloween, here are seven door décor ideas you’ll fall in love with.
Fall and Halloween wreath ideas
Wreaths: Wreath bases and forms can be made from different items, including reshaped wire, a picture frame or even a pool noodle so be sure to check the entire store. Once you have your base, be on the lookout for fall elements such as artificial leaves, faux flowers and pumpkins and shirts. For Halloween-inspired items look for spiders, bats and spider webbing or anything spooky.
Sweater sleeve wreath: This DIY wreath is made from a sweater, cutting strips of fabric to cover the wreath form. Once you are finished it can be used as is or you embellish it with ribbon or fall-inspired accents. For step-by-step instructions, check out Thrifted Nest’s blog. You also could use a scarf or flannel for a unique twist.
Bundt cake pan wreath: Turn a thrifted Bundt pan into a wreath by keeping the color as is or paint it the color you want. Add flower, leaves, ribbon or any fall-themed items you can find. Here’s an example of one you can try.
Skull and bones wreath: Paint your wreath base ivory to match the bone theme and some leaves black to create contrast. Attach the skull and leaves to the bottom of the wreath and place hands and other bones around the wreath. Another way to style it is to place the hands on the inside and the skull in the middle, making it look like the skeleton is trying to escape.
Spider wreath: Add a spooky touch to an already made wreath by stretching spider webbing around it and adding spiders or one big one to hang down from the wreath.
Beyond the wreath
Garland door sides or topper: Who doesn’t love a house with flawless curb appeal! Add some fall garland around the door, pillars or railings to create the ultimate warm welcome.
Hang a fall basket: Instead of a wreath, hang a basket instead from the door and fill it with flowers, corn, mini pumpkins and leaves. Change it out for every season.
Keep out decorations: Turn your entrance into a graveyard for Halloween by adding a “keep out” sign, placing cobwebs all over, hanging ghosts and scattering skeleton bones and tombstones around.
