Fall is my favorite time of year for front porch decorating. I love welcoming the cooler season with a cozy porch refresh.

One of my favorite ways to cozy up a front entryway is by adding seasonal wreaths and garlands!

I have collaborated with my friend Kathryn @kathynpackard to give you this free tutorial on how to make your own DIY doorway garland this Fall. This garland featured above measures 8 ft. in length and is handmade using the finest faux greenery and floral in town.

My step by step DIY garland tutorial will give you all the instructions you'll need to recreate the garland of your dreams. Simply substitute the floral and greenery with the materials you wish to work with for a more personalized garland creation.

The creativity is endless and so are the possibilities with this easy seasonal craft idea.

Garlands are perfect for warming up a home during the seasons and look absolutely stunning draped over doorways, staircases, and fireplaces.

Here is how you can make this beautiful Fall doorway garland as seen on Kathryn's Porch.
