"Pumpkins" and Acorns
It's cute as can be, but don't call it pumpkin! It's actually pumpkin-on-a-stick eggplant (also called scarlet Chinese eggplant), which turns a brilliant red-orange color when it matures and begins to dry. Look for it at farmers' markets or in the floral sections of large supermarkets, or grow it yourself from seeds.

White Pumpkin Wreath
Start with a store-bought grapevine wreath. Pick an odd number of white mini pumpkins. Attach pumpkins to florist picks, and then work the picks into the wreath, making sure to space them evenly. Secure pumpkins to the wreath with wire. Using additional florist picks, attach seasonal greenery (we used smilax) and bittersweet (available at your local garden center), filling in the spaces between pumpkins. Add an assortment of fall leaves to wreath with picks and wire for a colorful finish.
This monochromatic wreath will grace your door from fall to winter with its cool seasonal blooms. Find the wreath at @daisymaebelle on Instagram.
Give your front door a bold update with a bright red wreath made with (nonedible) bittersweet. Be careful to dispose of seedheads in the garbage rather than the compost bin, as bittersweet is invasive in the garden. For a similar look, use rose hips, which are more eco-friendly.
It Was All Yellow
The warm hues of these pumpkins, golden peonies, and berries will brighten up any entranceway. Find the wreath at @daisymaebelle on Instagram.
Pinecones and Autumn Leaves
Simplify front door decorating with a store-bought pinecone wreath. Give the wreath a personal touch with colorful leaves, fall flowers, and bittersweet.
Make a statement with this festive fall wreath! Welcome guests from the minute they arrive on your porch in true Southern fashion—with hydrangeas and a “hey, y’all!” Find the wreath at @wlbdesigns on Instagram.

Shades of Red
When it comes to creating a wreath yourself, always remember to work in groups. This grapevine base is covered with preserved red sycamore leaves and then groupings of preserved plume reed grass, oregano, pinecones, and phalaris grass are added on top.
Pumpkins and Gourds
To make this classic wreath from bright pumpkins and gourds, first cover a 20-inch foam form with sheet moss, using a glue gun to hold the moss in place. Loop a 3-inch-wide burlap ribbon over the wreath to create a hanger long enough so it can reach the top of the door and allow the wreath to hang at eye level. Insert wooden florist picks into the bottoms of pumpkins and gourds, and hot-glue the connection to secure. Once the glue has cooled, stick pumpkins and gourds into the wreath. Fill in with more moss, using a glue gun. To hang the wreath, secure the burlap ribbon with an upholstery tack hammered into the top edge of the door.
Door Knocker Embellishment
To give your door knocker a simple seasonal touch, zip-tie two crookneck gourds together, and then zip-tie them to a foam-core oval about 5 inches long. Cover ties with ribbon. Working at an angle, hot-glue sprigs of coontie palm, croton, holly fern, asparagus fern, and abelia to cover the foam core. Loop wire through one of the back ties, and hang above the door knocker. The hardy foliage will last about two weeks in cool weather and can be replaced.
Indian Corn Badge
Ribbons of burlap create a rustic background for iconic fall plants that are bundled into sheaves to form decorative accents.

The Fragrant Flower Basket
Looking for something unexpected? This hanging basket is filled with yellow pansies and marigolds, but also has seasonal herbs too.
Find a lined hanging basket at your local hardware or crafts store. Fill it with empty plastic bottles and good-quality potting soil. Yellow garden pansies and radiant marigolds to give the arrangement bright bursts of color. Add baby kale for a dose of purple in between the yellow. To make this basket functional, add cilantro (growing along the handle), golden lemon thyme (on the bottom left), and Italian oregano (on the bottom right.)
