Fall Porch Inspirations

Step by step ideas to get your porch ready for fall!
Time: 15 Minutes Cost: $20 Difficulty: Easy
Begin by adding a reversible fall wreath to your door.

Here is the link to make this wreath -
Add paper mache pumpkin topiaries.

Here is the link how to make these paper mache pumpkins -

After making the pumpkins, I turned my outdoor pots upside down and stuck a wooden dowel into the drainage hole in the bottom of the pot. (Measure the drainage how to determine the size of your dowel (purchased at Walmart.)
Make a hole in the bottom of your largest pumpkin and glue it on the dowel using E6000.
Glue the other two pumpkins to each other using E6000 glue.

On the top pumpkin, add a stem by cutting a small piece of tree branch and gluing it to the top.
Glue fall leaf garland, purchased at AC Moore, to the pumpkins using E6000.
Add a fall sign.
This sign was made with 8 lathing strips stapled together. (Lathing strips can be purchased at Lowe's in bundles which will give you enough strips to do many projects.)
The word "FALL" and the owl were cut out of scrapbook paper using a Cricut.
The word and owl were Mod Podged onto the wood which makes this sign weatherproof.
Add a welcome mat (purchased at Michael's)
And fall mums (purchased at Lowe's. Check the clearance rack for discounted mums)

Hope this post inspires you to decorate your front porch for fall. Happy Fall!!

    Cute projects, in my case I'll stick to the faux pumpkins though, due to lack of time...I could start now for next year!

  • Thanks! I like the inverted flower pot idea! Gets the pumpkins up an more visible. I might drill into a foam pumpkin - it would weather better - and stack a couple more of them to complete your idea.

    Cute! I have a very small front porch area but I'm going to try a smaller version of the Fall sign using a bunch of leftover shims I have.
