We have a fairly wide front porch, so I usually have to work on sprucing it up for the seasons a section at a time.

You saw the side with the porch swing, all ready for Fall – HERE.

Today, I want to show you the other side of our Fall front porch decor – mainly to show you how easy it can be to look to mother nature for lovely and very affordable decorations.

Fall Front Porch Decor

I first added a table runner to my grandpa’s old work table.  The runner is simply a piece of flannel plaid fabric with the edges frayed.  I have a quick and easy no-sew tutorial for that, HERE, at Ella Claire.  Then I filled one of my favorite old boxes with some wheat clippings I found on the side of the road, and filled a vase with some branches.

What this space really needs is some lovely white and blue pumpkins.  But I am patiently (or not so patiently) waiting for the pumpkin patch up the road to start selling.  I plan to stack some on and around the table in those old boxes.

I do love how Fall time colors and nature blends so well with old wood.

While looking for clippings on a evening drive with my family, I found myself wanting something besides branches and wheat – but I didn’t know what.  Then we past some reddish prickly type of weed – and I just had to turn around and grab some.  It looks quite lovely in our old milk jug.

My little guy decided he wasn’t going to move him or his crackers for my pictures – so he gets to be a part of the Fall decor. 😉

For the last 3 Fall’s, I get excited to pull out my dried boxwood wreath I made.  My husband tried to transplant a boxwood bush, but it didn’t make it and dried up to golden brown leaves.  I made the most of that dead plant, and turned it into 3 wreaths.  I gifted 2 and kept one for myself.  Leaves fall off every year, but after 3 years I still think it looks lovely.

I hope I have inspired you to look outside of the stores this year to add some Fall decor to your home.  It is really quite enjoyable!

I did a bit of a different set-up for my table runner tutorial over at Ella Claire, so be sure to head over there to get a bigger glance at nature and flannel fabric working together.

Or use my same tutorial to make a flannel scarf – inspired by my little sweetie.

  1. I just read your DIY flannel runner post and had to come over here to ask you if you wanted to share a couple of your fall posts over at the Fall Craftacular Holiday party that is going on this week-! Your fall porch is beautiful and your son is so cute sitting there with his crackers. Its the candid shots that I love!


  2. Bonjour! I live in the desert now, so going outside for Fall clippings & findings is not very fruitful. But, I am still inspired by some other things you have done, so I’d better get to Hobby Lobby or Michaels so I can finish my Fall decor!


  3. My favorite fall decor I’ve seen this year, or for a while! So beautiful. I’m going to go driving for weeds and wheat, heehee.

    1. What a flattering comment! It’s so nice when decorating can be free of charge. Enjoy your drive and thanks for stopping by Maggie!
