Whether you’re hosting a family gathering or simply want to do your part in beautifying the neighborhood this fall, festive Thanksgiving door decor is the way to go. Given that your door is the first thing anyone sees, hanging seasonal wreaths, door knockers, and florals sets the right attitude for the season of gratitude. Ahead, we rounded up thirteen cheerful and stylish front doors that set the mood for a memorable Thanksgiving.
Hanging up a wreath is the best way to give your front porch a little fall flair. And it’s super easy. Go all out with a harvest wreath or keep it understated with an elevated seasonal wreath like this one and hang it below your knocker.
Opt for a fall-friendly runner or welcome mat by the door instead of the one you used all summer. And bonus points if you line the front steps with pumpkins that reflect the orange beaded wreath on the door.
Instead of placing a Thanksgiving wreath around a knocker or elsewhere on the front door, put them on a pair of sconces flanking it.
Sometimes a simple wooden wreath is best. Not only will it match with various topiaries, welcome mats, and other front porch decor as the seasons change, but it’ll also never die!
Wreaths are great, but door hangings are even better for someone looking to switch it up a bit and who wants a DIY project. Using dried florals means you can leave it up all season long, too. Learn how to make your own from Cheetah Is the New Black.
Lanterns? Check. Pumpkins? Got ’em. Wreaths? You betcha. Just throw in a gorgeous seasonal floral arrangement (like the one on this gorgeous front porch from Sugar & Charm) and it’s a done deal.
Use a basket as a canvas and weave fall leaves and plants through it for a homemade door decoration this Thanksgiving.
Or, try the same technique but with holly, pinecones, and a red and white plaid bow so you can keep it up for the holidays ahead.
A metallic floral wreath will complement dried hydrangeas beautifully. We love how the welcome mat ties the pale orange and lavender hues together.
Hang your fall wreath with a bright ribbon. Then add a ton of pumpkins (bonus points for using apple crates as a pedestal).
Three wreaths are better than one! Cover the whole door in greenery for an extra festive kickoff to the season.
Opt for a wreath that you can leave up all season long, like the one shown here (it’s made of paper!). This one is great for both Halloween and Thanksgiving, thanks to the faux paper leaves in a fall color palette.
If your door has large windows, line the backs with colorful fall-friendly wallpaper.
