Late Summer Look for the Door

 scanned image from: Autumn Cottage

I was excited to join Debbie over at Debbiedoos for another Magazine Copycat Challenge.   My mind is full steam ahead for Fall decorating.  So, I was very excited to finally see  Autumn Cottage on the magazine racks this weekend.   I really liked this door arrangement.  I have been doing really great at decorating for this blog with using only things I have on hand already.  That's what I did with this. 

I just recreated the arrangement with things I had on had.  A hanging basket I got at an estate sale for $1.  Some faux hydrangeas, a pick of berries, and two picks of wheat.  For the decorative trim that was hanging down from the basket I used a fall garland I found at Hobby Lobby two years ago.

I love this garlandI have used it on the mantel and draped across the top of a picture frame.

So, there you go.  A late summer into fall look for the front door!  Brenda at Cozy Little House has a new Tuesday link party called Tweak It Tuesday and you can still link up any past or present autumn decor at Whisperwood Cottage's Talent Scouting Party for Cottages & Bungalows magazine till tonight.  Just go check on the links at the button below, so many great fall decorating ideas!!

You did a great job copying the magazine cover. It looks so inviting. I am ready for fall decorating also. This summer heat makes me long for autumn.

It looks wonderful, Sherry! I like the way it dangles down, looks so natural that way. Thanks for joining my first party!

Thoughts of fall remind me that summer is going way too fast! I will be changing my front door and very much like what you have done. Something similar would fit nicely in the container that I change out.

I almost did this very same copycat, but ended up doing another one from this magazine.Didn't you love this magazine?-lots of great ideas to copy.

Professionals better watch out, because your copycat door decor looks great. You did a wonderful job.
