Fall Front Porch Ideas

I am working on so many house projects preparing for all of the upcoming holiday entertaining. You know how time flies and really don't want to be tackling house projects while holiday decorating and cooking. I am gathering ideas for my front porch for Fall & Halloween and hit the jackpot when I saw 3 front door ideas from Midwest Living. I love this farm stand approach~I can't get over the rake with apples stuck in next to front door. Shut the front door~too cute! (if you can't see click on image to make larger)

This nature inspired front porch is beautiful. I really like the square wreath.

However, my favorite element is using old keys in pumpkins to spell FALL. It's in the details!


However, I almost fell out the bed....that is usually where I blog.....when I saw this spooky styled one! Is it too early to have Halloween decor up for my Labor Day BBQ?? No, really..is it too early?? I LOVE the color combo black and white, ask any of my friends and family. I always wear the color combo as well. I need a color intervention in my wardrobe! So this combo with the traditional Halloween orange is right up my alley. I'm obsessed with that door. It is a decal from Dali Decals. I looked it up...$75 my peeps. Only problem is I have a double front door??


Amazing what a little paint can do. They also drilled holes into pumpkin. Great concept but I think I would just paint to keep the pumpkin longer. Loving this Boo ladder. I saw a old ladder in Goodwill and didn't get it...what's the chances I'll find another one? Urgh, the search is on!

  1. I LOVE LOVE the Halloween porch! I have no porch really so can only do door decorations. I got to find a way to use the BOO letters and do something! :)

  4. I love this last door! And have pinned it. I think I am going to make a tree for my front door using a roll of craft paper that I paint black. Under 10 bucks vs 75! And I don't have a ladder, but will simply hang the boo from hooks next to my door. Thanks for posting this! My creative juices are flowing now.

  6. I love the pumpkin decors, love the orange color, it really spiced up the front porch ambiance. Love the wooden "BOO" too. Have you tried wall decals in decorating your home?
