Eye-catching ideas for adding autumn decor to your porch or yard.
By JulieMore in Decorating
Fall is the best time to display your favorite craft items outdoors. Craft shows are in full swing and there are many vendors selling wooden signs. If you are a good painter, try to painting your own decor items and craft signs. Verbally express your love for the fall season with signs such as "Gobblers Gather Here" or "Welcome Fall." Paint the saying on a turkey shape and add a stake.
Mums are definitely the plant of the fall season. With a huge variety of colors such as white, red, burgundy, yellow and orange, you are sure to find a color that will bring zing to your fall decor. Flowering cabbages are also a way to add a little more color to your area. If you don't have a lot of yard space, try buying some flower pots and add the mums and plants to your porch.
Wreaths are always popular all year round. They can be purchased almost anywhere and there are some really pretty homemade wreaths out there that many crafters have put together and sell at craft shows or boutiques. If you want to make your own, the best place to start is your local craft store. Starting with a grapevine wreath provides a good base. Adding berries, Indian corn, mini gourds, silk flowers and leaves is a way to really dress things up. You can top it off with a ribbon, if you like.
