9 Fall Door Decorations That Aren’t Wreaths

Now don’t get me wrong, I love a gorgeous fall wreath. But sometimes it’s nice to take a break from the norm and try something new. So this year, I’ve decided to swap out my usual grapevine wreath for a front door decoration that’s equally as beautiful but totally unexpected. Who knew there were so many gorgeous non-wreath options out there? Check out a few of my faves below.
