The air is starting to change and the crickets are chirping away signaling that Fall is on the way. I’m starting to think about how I want to decorate outside on my porch this year. I was scrolling through some of my pictures of past Autumns and thought I’d share my favorite.
I love to use traditional Autumn colors; especially here in New Hampshire the Fall foliage makes such a beautiful backdrop for your porch decor.
This was one of my favorites! I mixed woods and metals. The wooden crates and metal containers the mums are in I picked up flea marketing. I added burlap leaves to my pumpkins on the steps which looked charming. I made the “Harvest” sign using chalk paint,a precut piece of wood from Lowe’s, and stencils.
I mixed artificial pumpkins and real pumpkins to achieve my final look.
Here’s another view of my porch from a different year. I added the wooden cart filled with pumpkins and a couple of other flea market items (the old milk jug and the metal watering can). I used a grapevine garland around my door and a different Autumn wreath (I have a wreath hoarding problem!).
I hand painted this sign using a photo as my guide. I love that milk jug-it’s from an old creamery in Massachusetts.
I hope I gave you some ideas for your Fall decorating this year! I’d love to see how you decorate your home for Fall; just drop your Instagram or Pinterest handle in the comments and I’ll come over and check it out!
