Fall Front Porch

Pin It
 This Falliday Season, I wanted our front porch to be rustic, natural, and as masculine as it could be with a pink and white house as the backdrop. The pumpkins that I found were so gorgeous, I just had to keep them natural. My version of natural that is, which involves nail-heads and moss. Since we couldn't find any nail head trim, we simply stuck tacks in the pumpkins to create our address!
 I hung a two Euro broom as our wreath and tied some sofa webbing around it as a bow. We placed some brightly colored flowers (that were on clearance of course) in an arrangement to the right of the pumpkin topiary. I covered the ugly pots with burlap that I already had and created a chalkboard welcome sign...
 I will give a tutorial on how to simply, and inexpensively make your own chalkboard paint soon! The welcome sign was made with left over wood and some throw away trim I found... The sign sounds a little Paula Dean-ish but I love the word "ya'll", especially when my Southern, studly husband says it! By the way there is an E at the end of welcome.. I tried to be cool and make it the length of the actual word, but it didn't turn out quite how I planned...hehe.
I will be sharing my inside fall decor soon! 
What are you doing to your front porch to make them look festive and ready for fall?

    1. Thank you so much Becca! I found the wheel on the outside of our barn! I would imagine they would be pretty easy to find around different flea markets though! I hope you have a blessed day!
