Take The Tour Of My Autumn Front Porch
I decided I should finish decorating my porch for Autumn before it’s time to get the Christmas decorations out! So yesterday was the day. Come take a look.
The kids love to change out this garden flag for the seasons and each holiday:
Our wreath was looking quite anemic, so I added some golden orchid’s in fall colors by just sticking the ends into the grapevine wreath and voila!
It definitely beefed it up a bit:
That’s more like it:
At Michael’s they have some of their Autumn and Thanksgiving items on sale. I picked up these Berry garlands for 70% off! I wound them around grapevine garland and placed them above the front door:
Each season I like to change out the pillows on our rocking chairs. I picked up this Robert Kaufman fabric remnant with a deep discount a couple years ago. Waiting for the perfect project to use it on, I made these 20″ x 20″ pillows with the fabric on the front, and backed it with red outdoor fabric.
I also hit Joann fabrics and caught their 70% off sale on their Autumn items. I had eyed this wall pocket on a prior trip and put it back. This time it was such a deal, I picked it up for $8!
Every year my kids look forward to the two scarecrow’s, one boy and one girl, to keep watch over the porch.
On the left side of the door I created this vignette with some sunflowers and pumpkins:
I love having a lamp on our front porch. It adds such a warm and cozy vibe as it welcomes us home. Since the one we had before conked out, I found this lamp in our garage and found a new shade at Target. Problem solved.
This wire rusty basket lined with burlap and some natural elements add some texture. I already had the burlap ribbon bow with Autumn leaves on it from a previous project, so I just kept it.
I have been experimenting with my camera and decided to try using my zoom lens on this flower closeup and it I just love the effect. The focal point is sharp, but the area around it is blurred:
Well that concludes our tour of my Autumn Front Porch. Hope you enjoyed it!
