Your porch says a lot about you, and a whole lot about your home. You know that saying about judging a book by it’s cover? Well, judging a home by it’s porch is kind of the equivalent of that, and we all know that we are guilty of both these things! If you’re looking to impress your guests, neighbors, or just a common passerby, here are a few easy ways to add touches of fall to your curb appeal.
Home sweet, pumpkin! Tape a stencil in the shape of your home state to the face of your pumpkin. Once it is attached, whitewash over the stencil. Wait for the paint to completely dry before removing the stencil, and place this ode to your home state on your porch! Idea from Country Living.
Head on out to your backyard garden for the pieces of this fabulous fall porch! Tie patterned (or burlap) ribbon around large ghords, squash, and pumpkins. Don’t forget the hay bale; it’s a fantastic way to add a bit of country into your fall porch! Fynes Designs has more.
Let your guests know exactly where there at by painting your house numbers onto a set of pumpkins. Set these on your porch steps, and use orange pumpkins to line your front steps. Aren’t the colors here gorgeous?
Sometimes, subtle fall decor is best! Update your window boxes with miniature pumpkin and other fall flowers. Stick the pumpkins through skewers so you can hide them in your window boxes easier!
Regardless of if your bench is on your patio or on your porch, you can’t go wrong with an outdoor coffee table with a centerpiece like this! Decorate with kale, purple pumpkins, and other deeply colored foliage for an unlikely fall centerpiece. Do you see how the throw pillow matches? I love touches like that! From Helen Norman.
Bless My Weeds says that Mums are the perfect flower for all things fall! And I agree! The leafy green flowers that mums are known for, and their bright flowers (coming in a variety of fall colors!) are perfect for any front porch or yard decor. Display your miniature garden in a vintage red wagon. Park this baby on your front porch, and accessorize with a few orange pumpkins! Idea from DIY Network.
Above all other things, every home needs a seasonal wreath hung upon the front door! This fall wreath from DIY Network is the perfect accent to any fall porch, and it is sure to raise your level of curb appeal. Using orange flowers and old corn husks, this wreath would look incredible against any backdrop. Don’t forget to line your walkway with orange pumpkins. They’d look FANTASTIC with the wreath.
