Thanksgiving Decoration

Fall is almost here, so you may get the itch to decorate your apartment. There are tons of autumn- inspired decor ideas to consider – but why keep it to just the inside of your rental? The front door of your apartment is a great spot to add seasonal décor; it’s inviting to guests and adds curb appeal to the walkway. Before you begin decorating your door, make sure you get the “thumbs up” from your apartment community manager.

If you adore apple orchards, corn mazes, and pumpkin patches in the fall, you could easily emulate your season favorites with a harvest-inspired front door display.  Add a couple of hay bales and faux produce-piled baskets around the base of the entrance for a farm-stand feel. Drape a garland of red foliage around the frame and complete the look with a burlap wreath.

Pumpkin flower pots – also called “mumkins” – are a fantastic way to incorporate the season’s florals into your home décor.  To start, purchase a faux pumpkin and flowers of your choice. Next, draw a line around the base of the flower pot, then cut along the circumference. Finally, place the flower pot inside the pumpkin and admire your beautiful creation!

For a sophisticated fall door, try a nature-inspired design. Woodland elements, such as branches, twigs, berries, and leaves, provide elegance and artistry to your front door step.  Muted orange and white pumpkins will look gorgeous in the forefront of your display.

Painted pine cones are a popular DIY project for fall. You’ll need acrylic paint, paint brushes, pine cones, a hot glue gun, and ribbon. Paint the cones in a variety of colors, so they pop against the door frame. Next, tie a bow at the end of each string and glue the bow to the bottom of the cones. With the other ends, tie the ribbon together and fasten to the door.

Halloween is a favorite holiday among many. A front door display of ghouls, goblins, and witches will surely put anyone in the spirit of the season! Using Washi tape, streamers, paper plates, and construction paper, you can turn your front door into a scary monster, as seen on Pinterest.
