Backdoor Fall Decorations

Here are some of the fall decorations at my backdoor, which is where we come and go. I try to remember to turn on the lamp and jack-o-lantern each night before my hubby comes home from work so he can see it. He may not say anything, but I know he likes it! The initial on the big pumpkin is from a piece of felt. I traced a wooden T on it and cut it out. I didn't even glue it, just used sticky tack. I have been wanting to paint some polka dots on a pumpkin, but haven't gotten around to doing it yet. Hope y'all have a great Thursday!

Really cute and that it is your side door. I like to do a little decorating on my patio, because with all our windows, I see it everyday! Letter on the pumpkin is a great idea!

What a nice display for your back door! If that's the door you use, it makes sense; you and your family should get to see some of the decor! Love your initial pumpkin and the lantern. Does that one pumpkin light up, too?

Love the monogrammed pumpkin!

Pretty back door decor -- we mustn't forget the entrance we use -- it's important to bring pretty into our lives as well as the front door! Very nice!

Cute! I love the leapard print initial...

When we move into our new home, I am going to paint the door that leads into our house, the same red I painted the front door. The public wont see it, but that is the door we use every day and I want it to be special too!

Very cute! I love back door entrances. I have tried and tried to think of how to use our back door as our main entrance but the way our house is laid out it doesn't work. =(

Very cute and festive. Wish I could put anything by my backdoor but my dogs would probably think it's a toy for them and have at it.

Sharon said...

What a thoughtful welcome home.

I like the idea of decorating the "other" enterance, and how nice of you to make sure the lights are on for your hubby to enjoy it.
