Fall Door

On Tuesday I showed you my newly decorated fall mantle. I used burlap, orange and turquoise. Then I mixed in accessories from other rooms in my house- silver, glass, books, and candle sticks.

So now it's time to see what I have going on outside my door. Several of the DIY blogs I read get together to host 'link up' parties. Today is the 'fall door' day in blog world.  It's always fun to share and get new ideas. All from the comfort of home! If you're looking for some inspiration, stop on by.

Join the party here!

Now onto the door! I love the fact that our door is now black- it makes everything pop.


I made a Burlap Wreath and hung it from orange grosgrain ribbon.
You can get the details on how to create this wreath in my October column for North Texas Kids.



  Next I decided to make a Pumpkin Topiary to nestle among the sweet potato vines. I used 6 'carve-able' pumpkins from the Dollar Tree. The price was right and I liked how easy they are to work with.  To make your own pumpkin topiary, thread a straightened hanger into the pumpkins and then bend it at the top and thread the hanger back through.


 I finished them off by using hot glue to add a bit of ruffled burlap in between the pumpkins. Then I tied a strip of burlap on the top. I poked a few toothpicks in the bottom pumpkin. That way the topiary stands straight and steady in the potting soil.




 I am excited that fall is officially here. Between the outdoor and indoor decor, I am feeling festive about the new season. Once the weather cools a bit more, I will buy a few real pumpkins to carve and display.


What is on your door for fall?
