With fall approaching decorating your front porch designs is a fun project that everyone in the family can enjoy. There are a variety of different themes that you can use to decorate your porch with a touch of autumn. With a little creativity, the right supplies and a helping hand or two you can make your porch the envy of the neighborhood. Here are some great fall decorating ideas for your porch!
A great idea for decorating your porch in the fall is to use a harvest theme. Fall is harvest time and incorporating this theme into your decorating ideas can be done very uniquely. You can make a cinnamon apple wreath to hang on your front door. The wreath can be made from basic materials that can be found at a local craft store. You can purchase a ready-made brown colored wreath made from dried leaves and sticks and then paste cinnamon sticks purchased from the grocery store to the wreath. The apples can be added to the wreath by purchasing small apples, cutting them in quarters or halves and allowing them to dry out and then dipping the apples in a sealant to prevent further browning. These can be hot glued to the wreath. The smell of the cinnamon and the apples is sure to be quite inviting to anyone who comes to your front door. It will definitely evoke thoughts of a plentiful apple harvest.
Another fall decorating idea for your porch is to create an Indian summer theme. You can purchase dried grasses and wooden or clay colored planters and put the grasses inside the planters. These planters can be placed on the porch next to your door or near a rustic table bench covered with a pumpkin colored material that can also be purchased from a craft or fabric store. You should also purchase some Indian corn. Indian corn is known for its deep rich colors of burnt orange, deep reds and mellow yellows. You should consider placing Indian corn amongst the grasses in your planters or you can connect the corn with twine and hang it from your porch. Indian corn can be purchased from craft stores during the fall season or through an online craft retailer.
Finally, what would fall be without Halloween? A Halloween theme for your porch is mandatory for fall time fun. You can create the perfect spooky graveyard setting by recording your favorite Halloween music and wiring your speakers to play the music to your porch. You should purchase grey fabric material that you can spread over the porch to give it a somber appearance. Many Halloween stores carry props so you should buy a tombstone or two to place on your porch and a zombie to place in the corner. To complete the look you may want to purchase a fog machine to create the misty effect that you see in most graveyards.
There are a lot of great ideas to consider when decorating your porch for the fall – use your imagination and let your creativity run wild!
