3. Indian Corn Decor
Indian corn is recognized by its multi-colored kernels. Over the years, it has become a fall favorite in terms of its decorative use. The seasonal decor can be used all around the home.

4. Fall Elegance
Keep things looking elegant at your front door by using minimal classic fall colors. Muted tones give off a whole different aesthetic than the traditional bright fall tones. Using a greenery wreath with twigs provides the perfect touch of fall and is the perfect standout against a black door. Jarrahdale pumpkins’ soft bluish-green hue and the small white pumpkins give the space a unique look.
5. Jackolantern Lights
Bring out some holiday festivity by hanging these fun jack-o-lantern string lights above the door. The warm glow of the lighting brings a nice comfort to the front porch. Pair the lights with pumpkins, mums, a wreath, and a scarecrow for the ideal fall front door decor look.

6. Maple Leaf Garland
What better way to welcome the fall season than with the installation of a strand (or more!) of maple leaf garland? It provides the perfect amount of fall colors around the top of the door and ceiling. If you have an orange front door, it’ll look extra incredible during the fall months! Colored front doors are an excellent way to provide a fun hue to the porch.

7. Door Sign
Give yourself and your guests a reminder every time you pass by the “Give Thanks” door sign. It’ll put a smile on your face! Door signs are a great alternative to the traditional door wreath. Break the customary mold and do something different with your door decor this year.

8. Plentiful Harvest Textured Wreath
Fill your front door wreath with an assortment of classic fall features. Pumpkins, gourds, leaves, feathers, and berries do the trick. Bronze and golden touches bring in that desired fall-time warmth. These types of wreaths especially stand out against dark-colored doors.
9. Wheat Wreath
Golden grasses and wheat are reminiscent of fall and harvest time. You’ll commonly find those two things strewn about in fall activities like hayrides and corn mazes. They’re traditional items that won’t be looked over. Help your door come alive by placing a wheat wreath on it!

Chrysanthemums, ribbons, and wooden door signs make for an unforgettable wreath display. Pack a wreath full of all kinds of fall items.

11. Off-Center Wreath
Putting a wreath to the side of the front door is probably not a common idea. Turns out, it can create quite an interesting design aesthetic! Simplicity in decor still has the ability to completely transform a space and make it visually appealing. Use color palettes to your design benefit and don’t be afraid to be bold.
12. Pumpkin Patch Decor
Of course pumpkins make for the ideal fall decorations. You can’t look at a pumpkin without thinking about those cool months, hayrides, pumpkin patches, and all things cozy-related. Get festive with your pumpkins and fall decorating. Embrace the season and make your house ooze with the things of fall. The bright orange tones of the pumpkins and wreath add vibrance to the white paneled house.

13. Nutty Wreath
Things can get nutty during the fall months. So why not use a wreath chock-full of them? The nuts provide a lot of rich texture to the wreath. Soften the look a little bit through the use of faux leaves and berries.

14. Decorative Lanterns
If fall is your favorite, don’t be afraid to show your love for the season in the way you decorate. Incorporate all kinds of pieces to the design to craft the ideal fall look. If you have stairs that lead to the front door, use the space well. Fill white lanterns with faux pumpkins and other decorative items. Intersperse larger items like pumpkins, flowers, and signs between the lanterns. Don’t forget to string fall garland around the door!

15. Fall Harvest Wreath
Hang a wreath full of harvesttime elements. This includes fruits like apples, pomegranates, and pears. Add in pinecones, leaves, and red berries to give off the full fall effect. Use creative liberty when it comes to wreath-shape, too; it doesn’t have to be a perfect circle.
