Fall Front Porch Decor

Every year I have fun decorating our front porch, but this year I did something a little different. I decided to use what I had and scout my yard.  
I didn't even buy any plants.



I am joining a group of creative bloggers for the Fall Porches and Patios Tour!  Thank you to Amber of Follow The Yellow Brick Home for putting it all together for us! She puts in so much time coordinating it all and does a wonderful job! 




If you have stopped over from Jann of  Have a Daily Cup Of Mrs Olson , welcome!  I know you were inspired by her lovely fall decor!

This year, I decided to do one simple porch design that would go through Halloween.  The big porch fern is still doing so well, why not use it?  
Once frost hits, it turns a deep purple color that is wonderfully creepy for Halloween. So I decided to add some folk art wood crows 
that I use each year, and make it all about them.


I grabbed some branches downed in storms last week, and put them in a pot of dirt.  I left the crumbled leaves and wired on some decorative leaves.  
You can find leaves at the craft or dollar store, or maybe even
 take them off a wreath or garland that has seen better days.




Our old black door always makes a good backdrop. I took a wood round and painted it as a harvest moon, and added a creepy old "No Trespassing" sign. 
Our old rakes were brought out, too.




A wall basket with branches, holds more wired leaves.




Fallen leaves are always a great natural decoration.


A metal fence section edges the porch...and soon the hostas will turn yellow!


It was fun to use what I already had to create new porch decor!

Next on the tour is Rita over at Panoply!  I know you will love her fall decor!

  1. I like how you always find a way to blend your great vintage pieces into your decor, Linda. I'm thinking along similar lines as you also in keeping my fern that's still thriving, along with adding a few crows. :) Happy Fall!

  2. Linda, I love the use of old branches from our own trees. In spring I paint them and put them pots for more character. If the cold wipes our potato vine out this weekend, I may re-do that pot like you did your. Love the crow cut outs and the rakes. You are inspiring. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  9. I have entered a decorating phase where I want more decor nature provides. I think I may do the same at Christmas as I did for fall, where I just bought mini pumpkins and gourds and scattered them about my hutch. With a cat, nothing is safe anyway!

  11. I love that you created beautiful porch decor without buying a thing. Crows are perfect for fall and Halloween decor and seeing yours makes me want to dig a few out that I know are hiding in my Halloween bin in the basement.

  12. Linda,
    The garden rakes in fun colors are a nice addition to your Fall decor. Certainly symbolic of the season, and I am all for using seasonal touches in decorating. I would love to see your when it turns a deep purple color later. The crows are a nice, non-creepy Halloween touch.

    Happy Fall,
    Judith

    1. Thank you, Judith! It's hard to just discard plants that are still going so well...I'll get October use from that fern anyway. Then it will be time for evergreens here!

  15. I love the mix of Fall and Halloween on your fall porch. The rakes are the perfect touch - definitely need those this time of year! Happy to be on this tour with you!

  16. It's all awesome! The use of the branches has already inspired me! Love your ferns for fall! I used a fern in the autumn garden treasures basket on the sewing machine and I had a paragraph about using ferns through November but I deleted it somehow. Yours looks beautiful in that urn with the crow. That black screen door is just the kind I am looking for for the back porch. I want to put in between the chairs in front of the window. I hung the welcome wreath on the window because it just looked too plain. I will be looking for a door like yours on my junkin' adventures!
    Your Jack-o-lantern has the coolest coloring! Your porch has a perfect October vibe.Love it!

    Thanks so much for joining the tours. Happy fall!

  18. How clever is all this decorating! Using what you have and being creative with it beats going to the store and buying more stuff - that you eventually have to store - as if we don't already have enough! Using the door and rakes looks fantastic and I love the no trespassing sign!

  19. Your autumn decor is beautiful! I think some of the best decorating ideas come from when we shop our own homes. In fact, that is when I have the most fun! I love the way you used the fall branches. They are so pretty! It has been so much fun being on the tour with you! Happy Fall!!!

  24. I am so impressed that you didn't even buy a plant for your really fun porch. It's so easy to see something on Instagram, a blog or the stores and not want to have all new stuff. But it takes a truly talented person to put something together from bits and pieces.
