Metal front door Decorations

Yet again, I'm going to drill into your head that you can use what you already have to create some beautiful arrangements for fall! I've put a few together in the past week that all involve items I already had, and variety of filler -- or what I like to call "things you stick in."I already showed you how to make a beeeautiful fall wreath here:
Some of you suggested using a frame for a rectangle shape and that is BRILLIANT!

My favorite door decor is my go-to for our front door. I luuuurve my Southern Living at Home container and use it almost year round -- I love how one piece can work for most seasons, by just changing out the filler.

For the fall, I have used the same "stuff" for the past few years, but every year seem to end up adding more to it. It's going to be ginormous in a few years, seriously.

The only items I use are my container, the floral stuff and some floral foam:

I just pull the whole thing out of the container every year, put it in a baggy and store it away. When I put it out, I just pop it back in the container and fluff like mad.

Oh yeah, and stick more "things" in:

Sigh. This arrangement is everything I love about this time of year. Those colors just make my heart go pitter pat. And YES, I use fake flowers. Keeeeel me. (Our front door is protected.)

The next door idea is one I am really loving, and it took me all of ten minutes. I had another SLAH container in the basement that I haven't used for years. It was too bright white for most of my decor:

So it hit me. I just took more of my walnut stain, and dry brushed it on to highlight the raised areas. It kind of smudged onto the other areas, but I ended up loving the look and kept doing it all over:

Gorg!! I stuffed a bit of foam in (just cut it with a knife if it doesn't fit): I snipped a leaf garland apart into sections and just stuffed them in: Because, yet again, I can't leave well enough alone, I wrapped some fall ribbon around the hanger:

Here's what I would do

Rearrange the main couch so it's back to the window, with your side table between the window and the couch, with the TV on one side (not in front); in front, put a coffee table then the smaller couch (create a comfortable circle for socialization/hobbies, conversations.)
Get a higher bookshelf unit so you don't have vast expanses of wall space above 5 foot.
Select through the pictures, put some above a console (again, so 1 or 2 of the walls have decorations to 8 foot high, instead of the horizontal band effect.)
One thing that would work would be to group by kind of frames (wood vs
