One spray paint can and several hours of painting later, I have my front door ready to go for early fall! I wanted to get this space decorated first (you can read how I only decorate one area at a time HERE), but I ran into a little trouble when I couldn’t find affordable white pumpkins. After I did a little DIY with these dollar tree pumpkins (read about the DIY project HERE), this fall front door look was ready to go!
Once it gets cooler here, I’ll add more real pumpkins in, and I have a few other ideas to spruce up this space. But here is my first fall transition look, and I’m loving it so far.
Fall Grapevine Wreath
This wreath is about six years old! Isn’t that crazy?! I just love all the rich fall colors in it. Even though my house is neutral, I really love mimicking the fall leaf colors on my front door. Read how to make this fall grapevine wreath HERE. I’m still hating my college-girl self for fully embracing that cringy chevron fad lol. I’m hoping when I have a moment to switch out this chevron with a different burlap bow (details of how to make this bow in the wreath blog).
Wire Bucket + White Pumpkins
This is something I had a vision for but I wasn’t able to find affordable white pumpkins. I also didn’t want to put super nice pumpkins outside, as there’s a pretty high chance they will get damaged over the next couple of months. SO – I DIYed it up! Read how I turned neon orange dollar tree pumpkins to these farmhouse style white pumpkins in THIS post. Since my wreath is so rich in color, I wanted the pumpkins to be neutral to balance it out. However, I decided to add in a pop of color to tie in with the wreath by adding an assorted fall floral bunch in the basket.The wire basket is from Hobby Lobby last year!
Chalk Painted Chair + Pumpkin
I chalk painted this chair last month (read my review of Rustoleum Chalked Paint HERE) and chose not to seal it since it would be outside (the seal finish is for indoor use only). The paint has started to chip – which I’m 100% okay with. I really like the chippy, vintage look that’s starting to naturally happen with this chair being outside. I really love having a chair on our small front door area, it just makes it seem more cozy!
I styled this chair using a pumpkin from my friendsgiving tablescape last year (I DIYed this pumpkin too just using spray paint, read how HERE).
It is still pretty hot here, so I am not getting mums until my eucalyptus planter starts to die off. I am really obsessed with having fresh silver dollar eucalyptus on my front door! I seriously do not want it to die… I may start googling how to keep this sucker alive inside all year long lol. For now though, this cute neutral pot is staying near my front door to balance out the rich fall colors I have going on. I plan to put some maroon mums in next month when it cools off!
More changes to come…
As it cools off, I hope to incorporate live pumpkins into this space, and maybe even change out the door mat to something more fallish! But since it’s still 80 degrees here, this early fall front door look fits in perfectly for now.Hoping today’s post gives you some attainable inspiration to try out on your own front door!
