Front door fall decor

This is the first time I've decorated our front door since we moved into this house 2 months ago. I went to a farm in Switzerland and picked up a nice big pumpkin and added some vinyl lettering with my silhouette SD. I was looking for a tree stump to put my pumpkin on but couldn't find one. Instead I used a wooden crate I got at the hardware store in Switzerland called Jumbo, I love their creates (more crate projects coming up!). I have this awesome varnish called 'Marron Taupe' that I get at Leroy merlin, it automatically gives your wood that weathered gray look that we love so much in old palettes. So I just put a thin coat of that varnish on my crate and that was it.

 For my wreath I was inspired by this post and was able to make it in about 30 minutes.
 The basket my pumpkin is in is something I found at a gardening store in France called Botanic, I love this basket and it was at a great price as well.
 I really love zinc right now so I used a vintage zinc watering can and added a little potted plant inside. More garden/fall projects coming soon!
