Five Outdoor Thanksgiving Holiday Decor Ideas

1. Make a simple wreath to hang on your front door; decorate it with natural materials and Thanksgiving colors. If you have a large space, use tree branches from your garden bundled and standing in a corner or near the doorway; attach a gourds, nuts, raffia, dried flowers and ribbons.

2. Place a fresh, full colorful potted chrysanthemum by your front door. You can plant it later in the garden, and you'll have flowers for next Thanksgiving to use in bouquets or indoor arrangements.

3. Wrap your front door with burlap or autumn colored oil cloth. Drape grape vines or bittersweet vines around the door frame.

4. Make a fall arrangement with a scarecrow sitting on a straw bale, bucket or bench.

5. Group baskets, pumpkins, gourds, cornstalks, branches and mums near the front entrance. Add grape or bittersweet vines to add some texture and height to the arrangement.
