There is nothing quite as warm and welcoming as a front porch decorated for fall! Did you know that you can elevate your fall porch decor with elements from your very own yard and other parts of nature? Here are some tips to decorate your porch easily take your curb appeal to the next level this season!
- DIY Wreaths: It’s best to give your larger trees and plants a prune each crisp season during a fall cleanup – collect the downed trimmings to create your very own wreath!
- Incorporate Color: You can spray paint your downed trimmings and branches to incorporate fun fall pops of color! Think warm orange, bright red, neutral grey, hunter green, and crisp white.
- Dried Flowers: Before the frost hits, you can collect flowers from your garden (or a fall hike!) to dry – once dried, these flowers can be made into a wreath or arrangement to add an effortless autumn look.
- Pinecones and Acorns: Fill vases or crates with these bits of nature to add texture to your decor.
- Tree Stumps: If you’ve taken down any larger trees this season, hang on to some tree stumps! Tree stumps make for the perfect way to line your porch with a natural prop for lanterns and pumpkins!
- Pumpkins and Gourds: Whether you grew your own gourds this season, or picked them up from your local Louisville farmers market, these veggies make for timeless go-to porch decor.
- Mums: These flowers will add pops of fall color to your porch all season long!
- Corn Husks: Corn husks make for the perfect natural element to create a fun garland to hang around doors and windows.
- Leaves: While working on your seasonal fall cleanup, keep an eye out for colorful leaves – save these to dry! You can later turn these leaves into garland, wreaths, or arrangements!
Lastly, incorporating elements you may have around the house will round out your porch perfectly – lanterns, throw blankets, pillows, candles, and other cozy elements will polish off the decor! At Four Seasons Landscape Management, we look forward to crisp days and our fall cleanups each season – it is always fun to see how our Louisville community decorates for the season. Happy decorating!
