Fall Front Porch

Saturday I gave you a sneak peek of our Front Porch decorated for Fall.

I started out with the intention of using only what I had on hand, and brought up a wreath that I used a couple of years ago from the basement. I was off to a good start...

...that is, until I stopped off at Walmart and found they had large pumpkins for $3.88 and mums for $3.33 each. Hey, it was the easy way out. Otherwise, I would have had to go foraging in the woods (and in my craft room) for supplies and I didn't have enough energy for that. (see previous post if you missed the explanation).


Here's how the Front Porch looks all decked out for Fall:
Don't ya just love it when you post pictures of a project and it shows you two other things you need to put on your "to do" list? Now if I could muster up the energy to trim the bushes and clean the steps.




I wrapped the mums in some 10" burlap I already had. (yay!)

I spent $48.22 (not counting tax) for the 10 mums and 4 pumpkins. A cute banner would look great hung over the transom window, but Mr. Fanatic wasn't too thrilled with the idea, so I guess I'll save that little project for the mantel in the Family Room.

The leaves and Hickory nuts have started to fall around here, but our trees have not yet turned colors.We still have a few weeks until peak.
Any Fall color where you are?

  5. Love your ideas! Your porch looks beautiful. Now I wish I had gone to Walmart since I paid $5.00/ea for my mums and pumpkins at the grocery store! Keep up the good work. Oh and our Fall Foliage here in PA started to turn this past week, so I'm thinking next weekend will be peak season here. It's a few weeks earlier than normal. Have a good day!

  11. We are starting to have a lot of color! I have to go out and snap pictures soon or they will be gone. It has been very very dry so they are saying the color we have won't last long! Your porch looks perfect! So fall-ish! Mums and pumpkins are my favorite! I am pulling out my silhouettes and see how they work! I am excited about having my Halloween house again!
