Decorate an Interior Door for Fall

All of those plain white doors in my home seem to beg for some kind of decorating help. An interior doors near my front entrance seemed like the perfect canvas for a little inspiration. Here's an idea that's easy to copy and can be done with a minimum of time and effort.

Start by taping about four twigs to the top of the door on the left hand side near the corner. You want the twigs to mimic the look of a tree bough. Use two or three pieces of invisible tape to hold each twig in place. Don't worry that the tape will show. You'll be covering it up with leaves.

Use three or four bags of flat fall leaves and small squares of two-sided tape to attach the leaves to the branches.

Fill in your tree bough to the fullness you desire using the faux leaves.

Attach some of the leaves to the middle of the door as though they were falling and finish with a pile of leaves along the bottom edge of the door. I think my fall door makes a nice greeting for visitors who come by during the autumn months and I can leave it up until after Thanksgiving.

    I picked some acorns drops during my vacation in VA, need other ideas... want to preserve the whole branch with its leaves, thought about flattening it an pouring resin, is there anything else I can do? Have it in water so the leaves don't fully dry out and become brittle...

      Vicki, I was just think after the post about adding lights for the holidays, this would kind of be cool as a year round tree branch. Changing it up for each season and holiday. Just a thought but my thoughts haven't touched on summer yet. Maybe a flowing tree. The magnolia comes to mind.
