Are you stressed when it comes to decorating your front porch for the fall? It doesn’t have to be. Here are 7 simple ideas for a bright and cozy front porch.
I love decorating for the seasons.
We all know that it can get expensive decorating for every season, so to keep it budget-friendly, I love to pull elements from my backyard: pine-cones, branches, flowers that can be dried, and whatever else I find in the attic. I try spending as little as possible. To keep things simple and stress-free I gather all my bright and simple decor accents such as bright and light pillows, white pumpkins and natural elements.
Adding large pine cones on top of the soil in the planters giving a very rustic look!
A few years ago I made a wreath filled with small pine cones. The wreath has aged well. I thought I created a post on this, but I can’t seem to find it. So here is quick tutorial.
- Large foam wreath
- Burlap ribbon
- Lots of pine cones
- Glue gun
Cut the pine-cones in half and glue the flat side of the pine-cone onto the wreath until the wreath is completely covered. Add a pretty burlap bow at the end. It’s that simple!
I am in love with my welcome sign from Heritage Gallery, Marian Zimmerman, who is the artist, hand paints every sign for every season.
Drying flowers are such a sweet way to keep flowers forever. A few weeks ago, we had a family party and my daughter ordered a ton of baby’s breath for her gender reveal party (she’s expecting a baby Boy!) So after the party, I decided to add them to a huge basket to create a grand bouquet. I love the way it turned out (below).
I like to thank Tara from Lehman Lane for graciously organizing this beautiful fall outdoor hop. Please stop by and visit these other talented ladies’ outdoor spaces.
