Step by step ideas to get your porch ready for fall!
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!!

    BTW, Thanks for posting this...I plan to steal the wreath idea for Christmas this year. A friend is giving me permission to come over and trim his grape vines so I can make my own wreaths. The weather has finally gotten cold enough here in Atlanta to run the snakes away so I am going over this week.
    I will make a Santa for the center of the ring and put poinsettia! I have a full 6 weeks to put it together! I have everything I need on hand. I will post a photo of what I do!
