Decorating for Fall – {Front Door}

Decorating Your Front Porch For Fall

Written by: Annie Malone

If you haven’t already gotten yourself into the Fall spirit, it’s not too late.  All it takes is a quick trip to your local pumpkin patch, which is a great family affair, and a few beautiful Mums to brighten up the front porch! You can go as elaborate or simple as you’d like and I promise it will bring a smile to your face every time you walk in the front door.  I always love a great wreath too for the front door and I found this great tutorial for you to make one of your own:

  1. Grab a wire hanger and unfold it and twist it into a circle.
  2. Cut scraps of fabric (use different colors and patterns that are related to Fall) about 7 inch in length.
  3. Tie the fabrics in a knot around the circular wired hanger.
  4. Keep tying knots all the way around the hanger and push them as close together as you can.
  5. Once you are happy with the way your wreath looks, tie a ribbon around the frame to hang the wreath.
  6. See full tutorial with photos, here.

You can get as creative as you want with your pumpkins or you can choose to leave them just the way they are.  Click here for some great recommendations for carving your pumpkins and other ways to decorate them.  Make it a family affair and have a pumpkin carving night or invite some friends over and everyone bring their own pumpkin to carve.

The Mumkin is still one of my very favorite ways to decorate.  I think they look so cute and you can find the tutorial for those, here.
