DIY garland and door wreath

Dress up a Front Door

Craft a stylish autumn wreath and garland using sandpaper, cork shelf liner and vinyl flooring. Use a template to trace and cut leaves with identical shapes but subtle color variations. Then hot-glue the leaves onto corrugated plastic. The 24-inch wreath costs between $18 and $28, depending on materials used. A 12-foot section of garland costs about $30.

DIY pedestals, candles, pumpkins, gourds, potted mums and kale.

Make a Pedestal

Design and build your own chic pedestals with deck spindles and post caps. You can make them in about an hour for $8–$15, plus paint. Use them to display pumpkins and gourds or to hold outdoor decorations. The best thing is, they can be used year-round, not just in fall. Create a faux lantern surround to highlight your pedestal candles.

Decorate with Plants

Half the fun of fall decorating is adding plants that show off lively hues while neighbors’ plants are fading. Kale and mums are natural go-to plants for fall. But these crotons have the right hues, too. Crotons are tender tropicals, so take them indoors if frost is expected.

Make a Window Box Display

Those same plants that make great container gardens also work in window boxes. In fact, repeating the plants makes the setting more cohesive and less chaotic. This window box includes crotons, mums, lime-colored sweet potato vine and miniature pumpkins and gourds.
