Repurposed Straw Purse Fall Door Decor

Fall door decor from a repurposed straw purse

Thrifted purses are always fun to create with and they can be repurposed in so many ways, like my fall door decor that I’m sharing with you today.

With fall now here it’s time for me to get into the swing of my favorite season, and this quick and easy project was the perfect way to do that.

I found this cool straw purse at a local thrift store for $1.

All the vibrant colors of the floral decorations make this purse work for any season I think, depending on what is put inside.

I used a very different, but just as pretty purse, for my straw purse dresser storage.

These straw purses are sold as tourist items, and this one is from Jamaica.

It’s in great condition and holds its shape well.

Even the inside is pretty with this pink floral lining.

I’m so glad it’s lined because it helps protect the straw from being damaged by the floral stems that I’m using.


Florals used for purse fall door decor 

Miscellaneous artificial fall leaves

Like these large fall leaf picks that I found at a dollar store.


fall florals and pussy willows

And these pretties that I found at another dollar store.

Pussy willows are a favorite of mine so for me they’re good for any decor during any season.


Miscellaneous fall florals

And whenever I see good-looking florals at a thrift store for cheap I pick them up. These pretties were just 50 cents each.

To make my picks the length that I needed I simply used pliers to bend the stems back and forth until they broke.
