I finally motivated myself to decorate our porch for Fall. I'm sharing a few of my Fall porch decorating ideas. The past few weeks I haven’t wanted to do anything. I’m usually anxious to get started on projects but not feeling it lately. Do you guys ever get that way?
I think one of the problems is not being active enough. There was a time just a few years ago when I worked out a lot. I was also 40 lbs. lighter back then. Maybe that’s my problem? Now I just have to motivate my self to exercise.
Do you guys decorate your home, porch, or yard for Fall? If you do what kind of decorations do you use? Do you just buy a few pumpkins or do you go all out with hay bales, scarecrows, and corn stalks?
Fall Porch Decorating Ideas
I tend to do the usual….go though the junk in my workshop, add greenery and pumpkins…. and I’m good to go.
You may remember I bought the metal “hi” at the Nashville Flea Market. This is it’s first appearance in my home decorating.
The rusty metal cart is one the JTS got at an auction. The rest of the stuff you’ve seen in my décor before. The box sitting on the wheels held the balsa fir tree for the Christmas porch last year.
And the rusty wagon I purchased for $10 at a thrift store a few months ago is making it’s debut too. I really love this wagon.
I went to the local pumpkin patch and got a whole box full of pumpkins and gourds for $14. We haven’t been able to take the granddaughters yet because it’s been raining every time we have them. The oldest granddaughter is on Fall break this week so I bet we make it to the patch. Tenley usually has a written list of things for us to do. I'm on Fall break too….but only for 2 days.
So, tell me how you decorate for Fall.

Looks so cute! I love the little crate with wheels :o] I haven't done anything yet except put a pumpkin on the front steps!
Your little box on wheels is so cute!
I typically have a fall wreath on my door and a pumpkin topiary in a pot - sometimes with a leafy garland wrapped around them - this year I'm putting our initial on the middle pumpkin. I have mums blooming in the flower bed around the light pole, and an autumn tree (made from a tomato cage and silk garlands and orange lights) in the front yard. I think that is enough. One year I did use a hale bale at the lamp post and it killed the grass - I left the hay out there from Oct - Nov for the autumn season!
