In my latest video, I share step by step how to create a beautiful Fall door hanger. From cutting the foam to fit the container (anyone else hate the noise that makes?!) to making sure your arrangement is full and beautiful.

This is a great alternative to a wreath and a fabulous arrangement to keep up all Fall. Add a little Halloween or Thanksgiving ornament or bow to make it even more special for those holidays. Ok, let’s get to it, here’s the video. (Please try not to pay too much attention to how I “clean up” my mess!)
How to make a Fall Door Hanger Tips:
- If you recall my post on 7 Great Tips to Save Money on Silk Flowers, I teach you to purchase flowers on bushes to save money. So the stems in this project are just that, from a large silk flower bush. I chose a wild and untamed flower bush because I love that look. Plus when the breeze picks up, the flowers and grasses will move in the breeze, giving your arrangement movement.
- Use a kitchen steak knife to cut and shape the styrofoam and place it inside of the basket. You can see my tips in the video. If you make the foam snug enough, you won’t need hot glue to keep in in place.
- Cover the top of the foam with sheet moss or Spanish moss.
- Cut the stems off the bush at the base of the stem.
- Don’t forget to “fluff” the stems so they aren’t flat; bend them around however you need them. The purpose of this is to bring them to life.
- Start with longer stems in the back and work your way forward by size.
- If stems seem too “loosey goosey” once you stick them in the foam or you have to reposition too many times, you can add a little hot glue to the stem.
- Add felt dots to the back of the arrangement to keep it from scratching your door.
- As noted in the video, if you don’t use glue when securing the foam, you can simply pop out the whole arrangement and start fresh with a new arrangement for the next season or holiday. Isn’t this just brilliant? Girl, You know I’m all about saving money!

I saw your teardrop swag video and loved it and I also love your Fall Door Hanger. Can’t wait to try it for myself. Love watching you. Thanks for all your tips
Thanks so much Julie! Always love your videos!! Just watched the swag video last night and it was great! Can’t wait to make one myself!!
loved the video ,as usual! I will make a Fall Door Hanger this week. I have a question about your Wreath Easel. I am trying to find one out of wood. Is it a tripod? Is it an Art Supply? Is there a special name for it ? Where did you buy it ? I would really appreciate it if you could answer me back. I am very anxious to buy one . It is a nice work easel for designing the wreath. Again, thanks for all your tips and help to us, I do appreciate YOU!
I purchased that one from another wreath maker, Nancy Alexander, if she doesn’t have any in stock or they are out of your price range, can also find them on Etsy here: http://tidd.ly/521c98ef
Absolutely LOVE your videos !!! Can’t wait to see more . I have already purchased several.
Thanks so much.
As usual the video was great. I purchased some tear drop swags from Sims and can’t wait to get started. I love the door hanger idea. I now have a variety of items in my craft room. Deco mesh wreaths, funky bows, lantern swags, and now 2 new items to try. God bless you Julie for sharing your talent and wonderful ideas with us. My business has been rejuvenated since watching your videos. Thank you for the inspiration.
Great video! Love seeing other projects to do besides wreaths. Mixing it up is a good idea and love seeing the live videos from the store. When you are in Myrtle Beach again would love to meet you at Carolina Pottery and watch your shopping spree on how to chose things!

The largest box I use is 24x24x8. Try to fit it in a smaller box. Have you tried USPS priority? I use Fedex with a biz account and it costs approx $18.
