Front Entry Decorating Ideas For Fall ~ Come join me on a tour of my front porch where I share ideas for how it is decorated for fall.
Front Entry Decorating Ideas For Fall
The first project as you walk up to the front door is this outdoor fall arrangement that I make every year using silk flowers and natural branches.
It may look pretty complicated to make but it’s actually quite easy. I give detailed instructions with a photo tutorial for both the arrangement and the big bow here:
Next are two pots of bright yellow Mums and if you look carefully they are not real plants! I picked these up at a thrift store for a couple of dollars and transferred them to two rust coloured plant pots. I have had these two artificial plants for years and they really have stood up to the fall weather elements very well! I love the pop of colour they give to the front entryway!
But these two gorgeous burgundy coloured Fall Mums are real. I treat myself to two big plants year. I think they look amazing placed behind the bright yellow Mums.
Since these plants are a bit of an investment and I want them to last the fall season this is how I water them:
This outdoor fall flag with the message “Welcome Friends” looks great nestled amongst the green spreading junipers.
Just as an aside, hubby and I prefer not to plant any flowers directly in front of the house. Instead we have a garden bed filled with these green junipers called Calgary Carpet Juniper and they really do grow like a carpet! They stay this rich green colour all year during all four seasons. I just add colour to the front entry with the different seasonal décor.
These decorated pumpkins with ribbon and raffia you see on the stairs were my latest project.
Here are instructions for how to help make pumpkins last the season (at least until Halloween) and how I made them…
The basket you see behind is filled with artificial fall vegetables and fruit was a thrift store find. I put a few rocks in the bottom to keep it secure as well as a layer of burlap I picked up at the garden shop. I just added some fall looking decorative sprays to the handle and a rust coloured bow that you also see on the pumpkins.
Here’s my fall welcome mat in front of the front door. It’s an outdoor mat so it’s a bit messy. I did shake the mat and sweep the stairs and sidewalk before taking the photographs. I just like to keep things real for my readers.
The last fall project I made is this fall wreath hanging on the front door. This is another project that looks a lot more complicated than it really is. Here’s a detailed photo tutorial for how to make it:
I live in an area where we can get all kinds of weather in fall. We can get everything from hot sunny days to cool crisp mornings and it will even dip below freezing. We can also get wind, rain, sleet and even snow. The artificial items just stay outdoors the entire season and seem to be able to handle all kinds of weather. These projects are several years old. I do put the real Fall Mums and the pumpkins in the garage if the weather is particularly nasty and bring them out again when more sensible weather returns.
This is what you see as you look at the house walking along the sidewalk…
…and this is what you see as you walk up to the front door.
So that’s it!
