Creative Thanksgiving Front Door Decorations
Here are some creative Thanksgiving front-door decorations to help you make the holiday more special than ever. Whether you're looking for a fresh take on traditional decorations or something more offbeat, there's something here for everyone.
Carving a pumpkin is an easy way to add some fall decoration to your front door. They are also fairly inexpensive and require minimal supplies (knife and pumpkin). Add a candle inside for a warm glow, or string some lights around the outside of the pumpkin for added effect. You can even cut out letters from old newspapers or magazines to spell Happy Thanksgiving!
Fall Window Box
Make a seasonal window box to tie your front door and windows together. This is an easy way to get the full fall look on your front door without much effort. Fill a window box with fall leaves, pumpkins, cinnamon sticks, acorns, and pinecones. This is also a great project for kids to help with, as they can paint the box beforehand or decorate it while you're assembling it in the yard.
The third idea is to create a wreath with leaves from your garden and dried wheat. Harvest the leaves from your garden, wash them, and let them dry out completely in a large bowl or on the floor. Once they are completely dry, gather them together and begin wrapping them around a wire wreath form. You can use floral wire or twine to bind the leaves to each other and shape the wreath into a circular shape. To add more color and texture to your harvest wreath, tie different types of dried flowers into the leafy braid like wildflowers, carnations, or daisies.
Hanging lanterns on your front door is a popular way to decorate for the holidays. It's a simple and easy way to showcase your creativity with some beautiful decorations. You can get them in any color, shape, size, or style! The hanging lanterns are especially beautiful at night when they are lit up!
A big plus of this decoration is that you don't have to spend much time on it. All you need to do is hang them up and put them on timers, so they turn off at a certain time! You're done!
Tape String Lights Around the Edges of Your Door
If you're looking for something quick and easy, try stringing some lights around the edges of your door. You can buy premade light strands and just get some transparent tape and wrap it around the edges of your door. The lights will create a festive atmosphere to welcome all of your guests.
Add Large Potted Plants Along your Entryway
Place pots along your front door to add color and decorate for the season. Fill them with mums, marigolds, tulips, or other plants that will bring a pop of color to your home. Use ribbon or raffia to tie the planters in a bow or use twisty ties for more of an industrial look. Add pumpkins, gourds, corn cobs, sheaves of wheat, pine cones, and anything else you can think of that fits into this theme!
Corn Husk Wreath
This easy corn husk wreath is also a fun way to decorate your front door for Thanksgiving. Simply find some dried corn husks (you can buy them in bulk from most craft stores), cut the husks in half, and tie them together with twine or string. You can then tie it to your door with a ribbon. You can also add a bow for an extra touch.
A Thankful Tree
The thankful tree is a lovely way to decorate the front door. Cut out a tree from construction paper, and then paint it any color you like. Use multi-colored glitter glue and pipe cleaners to create leaves on the branches. Write thankful with clear stickles in various font sizes, and cut them out using. Attach them to the tree using small dots of hot glue or double-sided tape in different places. Add some birds made from feathers, pipe cleaners, and googly eyes (optional) for added authenticity!
A Thankful Heart
To create this heart, you will need a large sheet of paper and an X-acto knife. The paper will be used as the background, and the X-acto knife will be used to cut out the words on it. To start, trace a heart onto the paper with a pencil or pen in black ink. Cut out the heart and letters using the X-acto knife, paste words on the heart, and attach the heart to the front door.
Select a Seasonal Doormat
Door mats are a great way to welcome guests, and they come in a variety of colors, shapes, materials, and designs. This is one of the easiest ways to decorate your front door for the holidays because most mats can be easily stored away after use. It's also an inexpensive way to add some festive cheer to your home without spending too much money. You can easily buy them at the hardware store or online.
