Fabulous Fall Porch Décor!

There’s something about fall porch décor that is inescapably cozy. The colors, the arrangements, the flowers and vegetables! And the assortment of pumpkins, pussy willows, acorns and squash borrow more from country farmlands than they do urban megalopolises! We picked a few of our favorite fall porch décor images and how-tos from a wide range of styles to offer up ideas on decorating your own porch this season.

Here’s a simple nod to the season: a Hello Pumpkin doormat made from 100 percent natural coconut husk fiber called coir and backed with vinyl. Add a wreath of sunflowers, hydrangeas, fall leaves or faux greenery and you’re halfway there!

You can buy an autumn berry, cotton wreath with pods, or a bittersweet wreath from Piper Classics, or check out the selection of wreaths at Pottery Barn, Walmart, Pier 1 and Kohl’s.  Or you can head to the nearest Michael’s (on 120th Avenue in Thornton) or Hobby Lobby (on Lincoln Street in Thornton) and select your own floral stems and all kinds of other porch décor to match your individual design tastes.

It’s a Pumpkin-Palooza!

A Night Owl blog provided this idea featuring white (imitation) pumpkins perched in a rusted galvanized steel tub, stenciled with the words “Farm Fresh Pumpkins 50¢/LB”. The rust is fabricated with paint, and the stencil was made with a cutting machine called a Cricut. A Night Owl offers up a template — if you happen to have a Cricut of your own!

The white pumpkins (Michael’s craft pumpkins – also at 205 Ken Pratt Blvd. in Longmont) are a whisper of elegance, complemented by a few fall floral picks, like wheat grasses, natural cotton stems and these pine cone, rose and hydrangea combo stems.

Home Stories A to Z created a tableau of pale pumpkins, some stacked in topiaries, others rimming a selection of a fall favorite: yellow-orange mums. Reclaimed wooden crates were interspersed to provide a backdrop for the flowers and pulled into the arrangement with a small cream-colored pumpkin. Conveniently, blogger Beth’s front door and mailbox blended beautifully with her choice of pumpkins and mums, for a color-coordinated autumnal presentation. 

Starting with a slew of pumpkins, a variety of mums and a smattering of cornstalks, Simple Made Pretty curated 20 different looks for your front porch, with an imaginative use of signs, garlands, rocking chairs and wreaths. Pick one and make it your own!

Inside-Out Fall Decor

Liz Marie of the Liz Marie blog pulled together some of what she calls “farmhouse fall décor” pieces, incorporating subtle golds, browns and yellows – the undisputed colors of the season. Colliers Hill doesn’t have a single farmhouse in the community but we think lots/all of her picks – like this yellow faux hops wreath from Hearth & Hand™ with Magnolia (available at Target) fit right into our small town lifestyle.

For more tables-capes, tableaus and living centerpieces, the Southern Living guide to fall decorating includes apples and succulents, with more white pumpkin topiaries, for more than 90 ideas for fall décor. And Pinterest, the perpetual go-to board of ideas, will have you trolling the net for inspiration to create everything from pumpkin porch-scapes to fall table décor to get you ready for Thanksgiving, the mother of all fall holidays.

Finally, September posts to the YouTube channels of Araceli Chan DIY and Krafts by Katelyn in the form of tutorials, will step you through beautiful DIY fall décor creations using Dollar Tree items.
