I'm Krayl Funch, and this is how to decorate your front door for Thanksgiving and harvest. And specifically today what I'm going to talk about is when your entrance way is a little bit smaller. Or perhaps you may live in an apartment. Or your entrance way just really is not that grand. And you may not have a lot of space. But there's still things that you can do to decorate the entrance way to make a very festive for your Thanksgiving or your harvest dinner. I like to start with large gourds. If you find large gourds at your local maybe your pumpkin patch. Maybe your farmer's market or your corner store may have some of these heirloom varieties. And they really last a long time. So they actually last longer then some of the conventional large orange ones that you may find. So I love to use these right from the beginning of October on through Thanksgiving. As you can see these varieties come in many, many different colors. There is this lovely blue which I love. And then some of the different green ones, and Mexican hat variety. And really, really brings a lot of different texture and variety to the door if you are able to find a really nice selection. Then what I like to do is add in perhaps here we have a lovely bench. Now you can add maybe a basket to that bench. And create a little bit of a, again trying to elongate your entrance way and make it really full. So this way you have some pumpkins up here. You may put your jack-o-lantern that you cut for Halloween there. And then replace it with maybe a stack of Indian corn. And this can stack really nicely. And just leaving the husks on for a little variety. And again if you don't have a door where you can place a wreath, a sign is nice. You can just prop that up really nicely. Maybe put a little pumpkin in front of that. Then bringing in these stalks of wheat. We can just tuck those in. And if you keep them to the side they really shouldn't interfere with too much with the in and out of the doorway. Preserved leaves are great. These red will bring in different colors that we don't already have here. So tucking these in just like that. And then also around the larger gourds. Just giving it an effect. And again if you have some beautiful maple tree outside go and clip those. You don't even have to go to the store and buy them. But if you live in an apartment this is a great opportunity to use some of the preserved leaves that you may find in your craft store. And then finishing it off with some of these white pumpkins. We have these in mini and again just leaving them in a little bit of an angle so they're not just stacked up. And placing them just nicely on a stack. So there you have a really great way to you can dress up your entrance way even if you don't live in a big mansion.
