Fall Door Decor

I spent some time yesterday sprucing up my front yard to get it ready for Fall.  I added some seasonal colors to spice up my door décor.


Here’s a look at the door-before.  My front door décor was much simpler over the summer:

For the fall, I decided my door could use some brighter colors.  My red planters actually started off in a plain color.  I picked them up at a yard sale for just a few dollars (and later found a receipt inside showing that they were originally $30 each at Michaels- score!).  I was going to paint them a neutral color or ORB, but at the last minute decided to try something fun and paint them red.

I’m so happy that I did because I am in love with this red color (regal red by Rustoleum).  Our home owner's association won't let us paint the front door (they all must be this dark greenish color), so I really like these pops of color.

I popped in some orange mums and I love how cheery the orange and red look together.


To add some more red to the décor, I added a cranberry wreath.  I think the wreath looks nice along with the red planters, but I was a little hesitant to hang it because it looks a little Christmasy.  What do you think?

Somehow, I misplaced my front door mat (I have no idea how, it’s a pretty strange thing to misplace) so I decided to try something fun for the welcome mat.  Inspired by a chalk door mat I found on Pinterest (originally from Suitably Cool), I drew a welcome mat with sidewalk chalk!  I thought this was such an easy way to try something fun and new.

So that’s my fall door, y’all!  It makes me so happy to see the cheerful colors!

Have you decorated your door for Fall?

I’m joining the fun at Rhoda’s Door Décor party, the DIY Showoff, and Hooked on Houses
