Decorate Your Mailbox for Fall with this simple DIY

I began with a square piece of styrofoam, this one was 4.8″ x 4.8″ x 4.8″ square piece to create this decoration.

I cut out one corner of the square and set it aside to save for a future craft.  This left me with a “V” or “L” piece of styrofoam.

I took this out and tried it on my mailbox.  With wires secured in the ends, I knew this would easily be  secured to my mailbox when my project was completed.

I used my wire technique (you can read more about it  on my Halloween Swag project) to attach wires in each end of the “v” .  Later I would use additional coated wires to attach this decoration securely to the mailbox,  I wanted to cover the wires for a prettier look, so I attached a piece of ribbon with floral pins.  Don’t count on the ribbon with the pins to hold this on your mailbox, though.

I continued to build my decoration by adding the faux leaves, making sure that I turned my tub around so I could add to all sides.  This will be viewed from all sides, so I didn’t want any holes in my arrangement.

  1. This is absolutely lovely! I will have to check my stash for supplies. This arrangement could be made for any season. Thanks for the idea!

  2. Chloe, that’s beautiful but there is an easier way. Those cemetery forms that you make for monuments with a block of Styrofoam in the center and wire loops on each end will work. Decorate the center piece and bend the loops around your mailbox. Long leaves will cover the loops.
    Yes, you will have the prettiest mail box in Celebration. I love it.

  3. Hi Chloe!
    Your mailbox is sooooo pretty!
    I am going to copy it for a regular kind of mailbox!
    Thank you for sharing it.

  4. Your neighbors must be so inspired with all of your decor. This is a great idea and I’m looking forward to all of the transformations on your mailbox. And yes, you can start on the Christmas decor anytime!

    1. The wires I attached to the styrofoam need to be attached to additional wire or to zip ties that are wrapped underneath your mailbox. The ribbon is just to cover the wires, just for decoration.

  5. Chloe! You did an awesome job. You are a sweet inspiration too! I will try this project, it’s simply gorgeous!
