Fall Front Porch Tour

Happy fall ya’ll! :) I’ve finally started decorating for fall, and today I’m sharing my front porch!

One of the first quick updates I made was to my monogrammed grapevine wreath. I picked up some Styrofoam decor items at Joann’s and ran some thin gauge wire through them to stick them into the wreath. It was super simple, and made my little glittery pieces more versatile. I used brown colored wire so that the wire pieces would blend in more.

Pretty spooky wreath, huh? ;)

Keep your eye out for a post on what I did to make this Jack O Lantern really sparkle at night! ;)

Keep your eyes open for a post on how to make this Boo banner! ;)

Just in case anyone was wondering, I got most of my supplies from Joann’s. The kitten sign, witch sign, witch broom, and striped pot were all from the Dollar store and the rest of the items were from Joann’s.

The milk crate was from my parents house, and I spray painted it with silver and white paint.

The most expensive item I had to buy was one of my foam pumpkins! The larger carved pumpkin was $15 at Joann’s and I carved my own Jack O’ Lantern face into it. It wasn’t supposed to be a toothless pumpkin, my hand just slipped and I gave up on getting little teeth in it :)

We will be adding real pumpkins to the front porch when it is closer to Halloween, we just didn’t want to add them know and have them rot by All Hallows Eve! :)

The best thing about my decorations, is that after Halloween, I just need to remove the witch hat and sign, the cat sign, redecorate the wreath and turn the Jack O’ Lantern around, and it is a pretty Thanksgiving front porch!
