Outdoor Fall Decor

Hi everyone! We hope you enjoyed all of our fabulous interior fall decor photos from our last post. After finishing the inside of our home, we took our skills to the great outdoors and decorated our porch as well!

Decorating the porch was easy, mostly because we took inspiration from our set-up from last year. This included corn stalks from a local pop-up farm stand, a fun raven scarecrow from Michaels, neutral-colored throw pillows, and tower of stacked bronze-painted plastic pumpkins (a favorite DIY project of ours). Sue found two matching wall ironworks from Goodwill and hung a strand of garland full of fall flowers on each with the help of some twisty ties. A wreath hanging next to our front door was made from scratch with more leftover fall flowers, and the final touches of mum flowers and a hay barrel came from Walmart.

Here are some extra tips we’ve utilized that may help you too!
  1. The real pumpkins we picked up from Target have been spray painted with Rust-Oleum clear satin spray paint to keep the animals from eating them. Over the last few years, we tried using several other hacks such as Vicks VapoRub, Shellac, and vinegar to no avail. The Rust-Oleum paint ACTUALLY works, and we recommend you all to try it out!
  2. We decided not to take the hay barrel out of the plastic wrapping it came in, just to avoid the inevitable mess those bits of straw can make. From a distance, no one can even tell it’s still in plastic!
  3. There is still plenty of time to decorate for fall and Thanksgiving. Most stores are now already preparing for the holiday season, and their autumn merchandise may be priced at decent discounts. Take advantage of those deals while you can!
