Celebrate the season.

If you grow a mailbox garden, a magnetic mailbox cover in warm autumn tones will perfectly complement your autumn flowers, including fall favorites like mums, cock's combs, asters and ornamental kale.

Don't have a mailbox garden? Then your curb can doubly use the burst of jewel-like colors an autumn mailbox cover brings.

Celebrate Thanksgiving.

If you're like me, Thanksgiving is one of your favorite holidays. The weather's cool enough for snuggling and perfect for holiday comfort foods like sweet potato casserole, pumpkin pie and scalded oysters.

With so much cooking to do, you may not have much time for decorating! Thankfully, it only takes a moment to apply a magnetic mailbox cover that celebrates the warmth and happiness of Turkey Day.

Celebrate the harvest.

Show your team spirit.

Autumn means football and the fun of rooting for your favorite teams.

Even rivals can compromise when it comes to decorating for fall!

 

Perhaps you follow your alma mater's football team. Or maybe you root for the team from your hometown. Whatever motivates you to cheer, show your team spirit this year with a magnetic mailbox cover.

Of course, the fan support doesn't have to end there! A mailbox cover could be just the beginning! A garden flag, a garden gnome, as well as flowers in your team's colors are other great ways to say, "Rah rah rah!"

Go team!

I have no mailbox...but I would love to pop some of these on the ones that are on my street. I wonder if anyone would notice :D

Mailbox covers are actually a no-no in our neighborhood, but I use one anyway. (: Thanks for commenting, Rebecca! Take care, Jill

I've been seeing these around the neighborhood. I love anything "fallish." Some folks this year even have artificial fall leaves, flowers and ribbons and such on their mailboxes.

@ Derdriu--Thanks! I had a tough time w/the photos. Several people in our neighborhood have fall mailbox covers, but I was afraid I'd be snapped up by the po-po if I went around taking pictures of their boxes! Had to improvise a bit. Thanks for reading, boo! DF

TheDirtFarmer: Thank you for sharing such an attractive, cheery, versatile product as mailbox covers. Your words are persuasively to the point and harmoniously backed up by your sample photos.

Voted up, etc.,

@ JamaGenee--Yeh, they're really clever. They even have little cut-outs where the flag goes. Thanks for reading & commenting!

I've never had a mailbox on a post out at the street (or road), so I've always been envious of the ones decorated with a theme or to match the season! Had no idea, though, that some of them might have easily-changeable magnetic covers. What a great idea!

@ stephhicks68--I have lived in neighborhoods with the locked boxes too. Where we live now, however, everyone must have their mailboxes by the road, and that can look pretty grim without a few flowers and a cover! Thanks for commenting.

Cool! I have never seen mailbox covers (of course, our mail comes in a locked box at the end of our street). I especially love the team colors/logos ones. Rated up!

Hi Vicki! I first saw them in garden centers. If your mailbox is metal, they cling right to them! Thanks for reading!
