Fall Sunflower Door Decor


Does it feel like fall where you live?  Please tell me someone is experiencing something at least approaching fall!  Once school starts, I start getting antsy for the rich tones, spicy scents, and comfort foods of fall!

Since it's still in the 100's here for at least another two months, I figured I'd get started on a new fall project to bring fall to my home, no matter what the weather is outside!  Read on to see how I turned this



into this beautiful decoration for my door!


I made a quick trip to Michaels for some supplies. Right now is the perfect time to hit that place up because they have all their fall decor and craft supplies on sale- even up to 40% off!  So, I bought a wheat berry "bush", a sunflower "bush", and a pick of orange flowers, all on sale.

I am by no means great at floral arranging, but I knew I wanted the sunflowers as a central focus in the piece.



The wheat berry bush provided some fullness and height, so I placed it in the back.

The orange flowers on the side softened things up a little.

Once everything was in place, I bound them together with floral tape (not pictured).  Then I tied myself a beautiful fall bow.  The key to a gorgeous bow is wired ribbon.  Mine is 1 1/2 inches wide.  The wire helps your loops stay full, and you can add a little shape to your tails if desired.



This is a perfect piece to hang on your door, inside or out.  Unfortunately my security door makes the outside of my door pretty useless, so I think I'll use it to bring fall inside!

  1. I love the way it turned out! Here in Minnesota it seems like it turned into fall overnight. I'm not complaining, even though it means our frigid winter is right around the corner. I'll just pretend that part isn't happening ;-)
