When fall comes around, everyone wants to decorate with pumpkins, corn husks, seasonal flowers, and hay. While you can just place these things around the outside of your home as decoration, there are a lot of simple, creative things that you can do to step up the fall decorations outside of your house.
A simple decoration that you can make for your front porch is created with a few pumpkins. You can stack pumpkins on your porch to show your house number. To do this, you’ll want as many pumpkins as your house number has numbers, so if your house number is 3312, you’ll need four pumpkins. The pumpkins should be about the same size so that they can sit on top of each other without falling.
Next, paint your numbers on the pumpkins. You can also paint the pumpkins themselves to make the numbers pop more. After you paint your pumpkins, give them a while to dry. After they are dry, arrange them either in a stack or side by side so that your house number is clearly displayed.
A simple way to make your porch seem more fall appropriate is by making simple fabric changes on pre-existing furniture. If you have a swing with a cushion, you can purchase a new cushion that’s more colored for fall. You can place fall themed pillows on the swing, along with a blanket in fall colors. This can give your porch a fall feel without you needing to do much work.
If you already have plant pots on your porch, you can also change the flowers in the pot to orange and red flowers to give your porch more of a fall vibe. If your porch has wooden supports for the roof, you can place large corn husks around them to create more of a fall feel.
If you’re out shopping and come across a wagon, you can create a very cool decoration piece around it. To do this, you’ll need a wagon of any type. You can place some burlap and flowers inside of the wagon. With the burlap and flowers, you can stick a few pumpkins inside. You can also place corn husks behind the wagon.
If you have a few extra pumpkins, you can surround the outside of the wagon with those and fall colored flowers to create a decoration piece. You can also add gourds or antique pieces around or inside of the wagon to add more to the design. If your wagon is shiny and bright, you can distress it a little to give it more of an older feel that will add to the entire look.
Decorating for fall can be a fun experience for the whole family. Grab a few pumpkins, flowers, and other fall items and have your family come up with a few ideas of what to do with them. In no time you’ll have the outside of your home beautifully decorated for the season.
