Opt for Unexpected Color Combinations

The first step to creating standout curb appeal for fall? Craft a front door wreath with an unexpected color palette. Hark back to your elementary art class and use the color wheel to select complementary hues for your design. Orange and blue are a tried-and-true combination often overlooked for seasonal decor but, as evidenced by this gorgeous wreath, shouldn't be. Put the hues to work and craft this rust, marigold and French-blue pumpkin wreath to stand out from your neighbors and bring a fresh fall look to your front stoop. Start with a grapevine or premade boxwood wreath form and layer with fiery branches, berry sprays, pinecones and dusty-blue pumpkins.

Welcome the Dead With a Dia de los Muertos Wreath

Greet the departed as well as the living with a Day of the Dead door wreath made with smiling skulls, colorful flowers and festive fringe. For the base of the wreath, a piece of multi-color serape is stitched around a Styrofoam form. Cardstock skull stencils and brightly colored silk flowers are then glued to the form. A variety of ribbons are tied to the bottom of the form to create the billowy fringe. Black tulle fabric is added to the bottom inside while silver garland wrapped around the lower section gives the wreath a little sparkle.
