Door Decor Fall Linky Party!

Hello and Happy Fall! 

Are  you getting ready for the Fall season already?  I didn’t do a lot around here, but we did manage to do a pretty door arrangement at my sister’s house.

Welcome to the Door Decor Fall Linky party! I’m so happy to be hosting with my friends, Layla, Kate, and Sarah who are hosting parties too.  Hope you will participate in all of them.

This is a Biltmore Inspirations metal door basket that is really pretty and all I did was fill it with fresh flowers.  I didn’t break it all down, but this was easy to do.  I soaked some oasis in water, tucked it in the bottom of the basket and then simply cut the stems and poked them in place.  If anyone is interested in this basket, I can definitely get you hooked up with one. They are very versatile for door decor.

This is a great way to add fresh flowers to your front door for a special occasion.  They will last a few days like this too, so keep that in mind if you want a festive look with grocery store flowers.  Easy!!

So now it is YOUR turn to share your door decor!   Link up below and let’s all share in the inspiration of the season.  Cool, crisp nights, hot cider, falling colorful leaves, weekend trips to the mountains for apples and pumpkins.  Oh, I love this time of year, don’t you?

Link up YOUR door and enjoy the inspiration! Hope you will all visit and comment too, that’s the fun of a virtual party.  Don’t forget to link back to my party so all of your readers can get inspired too!!  Feel free to grab the badge above to share the fun.

  8. […] If you read our posts last week, then you know that Jess and I adore fall. We love it so much that we thought it deserved its own mini-series!  I set out to write a post on awesome ideas for fall wreaths.  Sounds simple enough right?  I mean wreaths are making a major comeback these days. Well… through my research and pursuit of fabulous wreaths to share, I realized one thing… I HATE wreaths!  Yup, I’m confessing it publicly.  I think about 90% of them look dumb.  So, I needed to find a non-dumb looking something for my door… I found some inspiration and I’m pretty happy with it!  The Anti-Wreath Tutorial  Here’s what you’ll need: An 11×14 frame (with the glass removed) Paint Ribbon Pumpkins (real or “funkins” haha I just love that cheesy name) Staple Gun Chair Pads I went to Michaels and bought this frame 50% off, but… it was still $15.00.  I headed down to the basement in search of another 11×14 frame that I could use. Here’s what I found.  I didn’t like the lines as much as the other one, but I sure did like the price tag… FREE! (Do you like all the dust on the edges?) The best part about this project was that I ended up only buying 2 pumpkins and a can of spray paint! I really wanted to use mini real pumpkins, but I think I was about a week too early in the season.  Instead, I found these cuties at Michaels for $2.99 each. The first step was to spray paint the frame purple.  I didn’t take pictures of this because really, how many times do you want to see me spray paint something? Then, of course I didn’t wait long enough and scratched the paint. GRRR… back to do another coat.  I might add here that I used Krylon paint and it was awesome.  I loved the way it sprayed and it did dry really quickly… 10 mins max… I just touched it at about 7 mins! I did a little test run of the frame on the wreath hanger and it was banging all over the place.  NOT COOL.  I don’t want a dinged up door! So… I ran to my closet of tricks and grabbed these chair pads.  No more destroying my door For the ribbon, I simply tied ribbon onto the stem of each pumpkin and then stapled it to the back of the frame.  I also tied one piece of ribbon around the frame and knotted it onto the wreath hanger.     I think that as far as wreaths go, well, it’s pretty cute! The whole project took about 15 minutes (ok, maybe 20 because I smudged my spraypaint!) It’s not an “In Your Face” wreath… I think it’s just a little accent that fits my style just right.  (don’t you love the little halloween stickies that my kids taped on the windows with scotch tape?  They’re my mini decorators.  I’m finding faux leaves and pumpkins everywhere!)  For Christmas, I plan to paint it red and add some christmas balls. Something like this… Source: google.com via The Real Housewives on Pinterest So, there you have it. An anti-wreath post, from a wreath hater.   I might be a hater, but I know some of you dig the wreath.  If so, you need to check out Emily over at one of our favorite blogs Jones Design Company.  The Nonna Wreath Tutorial And even as a wreath hater, I admit this one is pretty cool! Perhaps it’s the English teacher in me… Book Page Wreath Tutorial  I’d love to know if you’re a lover or a hater… and head over to Emily’s blog tutorials and let her know we sent you! Have a fabulous Monday!   P.S. Jess and I hung out Sunday night and did what BFFs do… ate brownie batter, browsed Pinterest, read blogs, and planned out some super fun posts for the next month!
