Fall Decorated Mailbox
I will show you the steps I used to make my mailbox the prettiest mailbox on the street this fall!

I began with a cube 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. The best way I have found to cut my styrofoam is these knives!
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 paper-wrapped wire for this.
I couldn’t take my mailbox indoors, so I used this small plastic container to use as a stand in for the mailbox while I styled my decoration.
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.
Now for the fun, I began by digging through my bins of leftover fall florals and leaves and sticking them securely into the styrofoam. I didn’t want anything loose since this will be out in the weather.
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.
Here is a view from the top as I built up the sides.
Time to add some tiny faux pumpkins! I used wood sticks stuck into the pumpkins and then stuck into the styrofoam.
Sunflowers are a great nod to the fall season along with some pretty fall mums and autumn colored berries.
When I was confident the arrangement was full on all sides it was complete!
Time to add this to my mailbox! I am so happy with the color it adds to my curb appeal! I like to decorate the mailbox for all of the holidays, like this one for the Fourth of July!
Surprise your mailman and your neighbors with the prettiest mailbox on the street this fall with a fall decorated mailbox!
Christmas will be coming, and you might want to decorate your mailbox like my Christmas mailbox!
