Alerus | OCT 04, 2018

Football games, changing leaves, shorter days, harvest celebrations, and crisp air — the signs and colors of fall are all around us. This year, we want to see how you embrace the season in your outdoor home decor. Snap a picture of your festive front door or front yard decorations and share it on social media with the hashtag — #AlerusFrontDoor. Looking for inspiration to get started? Here are a few tips:


Pumpkins – not just for jack-o’-lanterns. Pumpkins are now available in a staggering number of varieties and colors. White pumpkins can provide an exciting accent to the oranges and reds that typically dominate fall decorating. Hollow out any color pumpkin to use as a unique planter for beautiful fall mums. Or, grab some stencils and a black lacquer paint to decorate the gourd of your choice with your house number.


Fill the steps. Fall is the season of bounty. Stack your front steps or porch with a variety of fall favorites like gourds, buckets of apples, corn or wheat stalks, and miniature straw bales. Consider artfully incorporating bare branches in tall planters for a new texture. If you’ve thought ahead and filled a summer planter with annuals that now feature the deeper red foliage of fall, give them a place to shine.


Make your own wreath. There are numerous online tutorials to help guide you through the easy and fun process of making your own front door wreath. Start with a store-bought grapevine wreath and a few supplies like florist wire, florist picks and a selection of brightly colored fall leaves and let your imagination run wild!


We can’t wait to showcase your creativity and beautiful décor! Follow along: #AlerusFrontDoor
