This looks like a blog, right?
It’s actually an idea factory.
Especially if you have a door that needs a little fall? This is the place.
(total aside: I went all Grease The Movie in my mind with that last phrase. Grease is the time. Grease is the place. Grease is the motion.)
Apparently, this is an idea factory that chases rabbits, too. 🙂
Are you ready for some ideas? I have three different doors I created for Kirkland’s with three different looks and tons of easy, simple projects anyone can create in minutes.
So buckle your idea seat belt….
….because here we go.
Idea 1: Lanterns are your friend.
Fill them with baby pumpkins or gourds or squash or grapevine spheres.
Idea 2: Shop the grocery store. Cabbage is so budget friendly and gives extra texture to a display.
Tuck it in pots or wood containers or even a stack of grapevine wreaths.
Idea 3: Add a little pine cone to your grapevine pumpkin
I attached an eye hook to the base of the pine cone. Next, I threaded strips of burlap through the eye hole at the base of the pine cone. Then I repeated all the steps for the other end of the burlap strip. Lastly, I tied the pine cones on the grapevine pumpkin. You could also drape the pine cones around the lantern or even add the pine cone to just one end of the burlap strip and group them together in place of a wreath.
Idea 4: Add corn husks for height
I got mine from across the road.
They came from the free department.
If you don’t live in the country, you can find them at garden centers and home improvement stores.
Idea 5: Pumpkin and grapevine urns
Place a piece of wood over the top of an urn.
Add a grapevine wreath. I love these grapevine wreaths with the larger pieces of grapevine.
Fill the wreath with tiny pumpkins and gourds.
Sometimes a little extra is all you need to make the rest of the pumpkins shine.
This glass pumpkin adds that little something extra.
Purchase a half dozen inexpensive pumpkins and then splurge on one special pumpkin to make all the others feel like they won the lottery.
Idea 7: Add a door runner
Instead of a traditional wreath, think outside the box.
This is actually a table runner (and it’s on sale).
I loved the graphic elements of the runner and how it makes the whole space pop.
I simply attached it to the top of the door on the other side to secure it. This idea works best if your door has a little bit of shelter to protect the runner because it’s fabric.
Idea 8: Add a monogram
This fun letter K started out life as a coaster.
I simply glued it to the front of the pumpkin to create a vegetable that is calling my name.
Idea 9: Add a pumpkin topper
To make this pumpkin, I simply cut up the table runner and cut leaves out of it.
Then I glued them to the top of the pumpkin to carry the colorful theme to the rest of the display.
Idea 10: Add color to the space
Color. Glorious, wonderful, incredible color.
I love this pumpkin with all it’s brilliant shades of fall.
It makes the entire display pop.
Idea 11: Add a wall hanging in place of a wreath
A wreath doesn’t have to be a wreath.
You could add a letter or monogram to personalize it, too.
Idea 12: Make a pumpkin address sign
To make this project, I started with three polka dotted pumpkins. I painted my address numbers onto the pumpkins with acrylic paint.
Then, I glued them to a board and stacked them against the wall by the door.
I love how this project turned out.
I’m almost there.
The outside is done and I have a little bit more fall decorating to finish up inside the house.
I just need a few more projects to make it perfect.
Good thing I know someone who runs an idea factory. 🙂
