Thanksgiving is a fun-filled festival celebrated every year to commemorate the bountiful harvest obtained during the season and thank God for his wondrous blessings. Thanksgiving prayers and dinner are the highlights of Thanksgiving celebrations. This festival gives everyone a chance to indulge in decorating their homes beautifully. Magnificent decorations, with all colorful crafts, add to the festivity of Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving door decoration involves beautifying the home entrance such that it not only looks appealing but also gives the guests a warm Thanksgiving welcome. Let us now have a look at some ideas to decorate the doors for Thanksgiving.
Pine Cone Hanger
A simple yet beautiful hanger made from pine cones will be a perfect door decoration for Thanksgiving. You will need a small, metal ring and lots of ribbon, either in the same color or a combination of different fall colors, about 1 or 1½ inches wide. Since its Thanksgiving, you can even buy ribbon, featuring Thanksgiving images, like turkey. For every two pine cones you have, cut one ribbon. Gather all the ribbons and fold them in half. Lay them on the table. Place the metal ring on the ribbons, up close to the fold. Hold the ends of the ribbons and pass them through the loop formed from the fold of the ribbons. Pull the ends tightly to attach them to the ring. Now cut out the ribbons in varying lengths such that each pine con hangs at a different length. Dot some hot glue at the ribbon end and attach one pine cone. To give the decoration a colorful and vibrant feel, paint the pine cones in fall colors beforehand. Allow the glue to dry up and voila! You have a creative and glorious door decor.
Fall Leaves Garland
A colorful riot of fall colors will create a cheerful welcome when embellished on your doorway. Collect maple and ivy leaves from your lawn or purchase realistic polysilk ones from the market. Weave them onto a base of natural twigs and secure them tightly to create a beautiful outdoor garland. Affix the garland on three sides of your entryway, beginning, from one end of the door, proceeding to the top and then down to the other side of the door. For a more improved and enhanced touch of beauty, prepare a wreath using the same flowers and hang it on the middle of the door.
Red Maple Leaf Wreath
Lots of dark red maple leaves, with a touch of gold, can create a visual element to mesmerize the guests walking down to your home. Get plenty of dark red maple leaves and some gold accents. Work your way towards creating a wreath using the maple leaves, with gold accents in between. Simple to make yet adoring to look at! You can hang this vibrant seasonal accent on the entryway, wall indoors, front porch, or anywhere indoors.
