My Fall Front Porch

I love decorating my porch for the seasons. It’s a small entry, so I have to be careful not to overload it.  My Fall front porch this year is simple. Mostly fall, with a hint of Halloween.

Decorating for Fall

As part of the Lowe’s Creator Team our challenge was to bring fall to our home somehow. I couldn’t think of a better way to decorate for fall than to spruce up my front porch with a few pots of mums. I chose the golden color for a nice contrast to my red door.

Fall Porch

To keep the bulk down of using terracotta planters, I decided to use some left over burlap and left over drop clothes to create a festive wrap around the plastic pot they came in. I secured the material with twine.  Simple with a hint of Autumn. This was an easy and inexpensive way to add warmth to my front entry with out a ton of work.  My kind of project!

I added small hints of Halloween that can easily be taken down to transition to Thanksgiving.   A rat here………..Halloween porch ideas

I’m loving the look of the drop cloth and burlap wrapped pots with the Mums.  Like I said…….Simple!

I’d say my door looks inviting and stylish….not fussy or over done.

    Looks great! My front door is still undergoing some upgrades (removed all nasty, ugly paint and are varnishing it and painting the frame), so I haven’t done much on our porch but buy a few mums. Now I want to go decorate!

    I enjoyed all the autumn decorations photos, since right now the rental house next to mine, full of undisciplined children, means I can’t put anything outside. Every 2-3 months they have a new family in that huge house next to mine, and this one is really the worse, now they tore a storm window off that house and several sticks out of the porch railing. Previous tenants tore bits of my house up: clothes line, light fixture, all my landscape rocks tossed all over my yard while I was gone. SIGH.
    So enjoying the lovely photos from afar. Pray for NICE neighbors or someone to buy that huge house and fix it up and love it.

    What a pretty front porch entryway you have created, Kim–I like that you were able to include so many wonderful decorative elements in a relatively small space, and it looks welcoming and inviting! I love the mums.
