Fall Decorating Idea DIY
I am creative and have no idea where my ideas come from. This fall decorating idea just popped into my head. Adding fall decor to your entry and front porch is the perfect way to greet guests through the season.

Prep your project:
This project begins with a 16″ square wire wreath form. Take a good pair of wire cutters and snip through all three of the wires in two opposite corners of the wreath. You will have two pieces as shown above after cutting through the wires. Attach two Command hooks to the frame around your door so half of the frame will fit the edge of the door as shown above. After attaching your hooks, take your wire back down so you can make your decoration.
Add the decor:
I gathered a bunch of faux flowers and leaves to begin my project. (Later I decided not to use the sunflowers.) Make sure you have an even number of items to use. The colors you select will add that fall decor to your project.
Cut leaves and blooms into individual pieces as I have done with the bush of fall leaves above. The first step to adding your florals and leaves is to wedge them over the wires IF you have a “Y” in the stems. If not, don’t worry, you will still be able to attach them. Lay out your first layer of stems to decide on placement.
Once you are happy with your layout, begin securing your stems to the wire frame. Add a bead of hot glue all of the way down between a stem and the wire frame as shown above.After attaching the first layer of leaves, begin building an arrangement of flowers in the corner of the wire frame.
Continue to add layers including things like these faux acorns and small pumpkins.
As you build your arrangement on the frame, you may find you have to turn the frame over and glue on the back. When you have completed one of the frames, build the second frame in the same wayBefore you know it, your project is complete! Time to decorate your home!
You can see my front door is festive and welcoming, ready to greet all of my guests this fall! I will be sharing how to make the coordinating wreath later this week!
