DIY Fall Porch and Door Decor, a Lantern and Garland

The porch decor for Autumn is simple, just a pumpkin in an urn and some pine cones and gourds in a favorite ceramic dish.

 The impatiens are still pretty so, they get to stay a bit longer, soon they will be replaced with mums... but not today.

I love my fairies so they are out till the weather gets nasty, around November 15th or so!

I wanted to make something a little different this year than the usual leaf wreath for the door. Don't get me wrong I love leaf wreaths and think they really look so pretty this time of year. I made a few myself, last year.
But I just wanted to change it up this year. So I made a few new things...

  • A door Decoration,
  • An Acorn Lantern,
  •  A garland from twine, acorn and starfish.

Easy as Pie.
For the door.
I started with some  drop cloth, wheat stalks,  acorns,and a few old corn stalks.

  • I fastened the dropcloth to a corkboard ( staple gun)

  • tied twine around my wheat

  • tied and glued acorns to the twine

  • fastened the whole thing to the canvas, letting the twine garland spill.

  • added a few corn stalks.

And done!

It's a little different but.. I am happy with it.
I love how it looks on my door.

Come on in and take a peak at the entryway.

Just inside the door is my Acorn Lantern, I plan to make a ton of these for Halloween

And some of my acorn garland wrapped around the mirror. We have tons of acorns around here, so I scoop up as many as I can, and make these garlands by glueing  baby starfish and tying and glueing the acorns to twine. easy, but time consuming.

I love when the Acorn Lantern is  lit.

So those are my simple, and pretty much, really thrifty, Fall decor ideas.
