Fall Front Porch Decorating

With today being the official first day of Fall, I wanted to make sure our front porch was ready.  So, without further ado, here is our Fall Front Porch

Earlier this week, you saw the cute bench we made.

I picked up this beautiful lantern at a Home Tour in San Jose, California last year.  I just add a new little pumpkin every year.

On the other side of the porch, we have this fun little display with crates and wheat.  I bought the bushel of wheat and metal canister from HomeGoods.

I was planning to make some crates, but then I saw some unfinished pine crates on sale ($12 each) at Lowe’s and discovered that buying the materials would end up costing me more than if I just bought the pine crates. Here is a picture of what the crates looked like before I started.

I stained the crates, and put a light polyeurethane finish over the stain. Stacking them on top of each other and adding a few pumpkins really gave it a finished look.

I also bought this beautiful wreath from Kirkland’s.  They always have a great selection of Fall decor this time of year.

Hope you enjoyed the tour of our Fall Front Porch!  How do you like to decorate your front porch for Fall?
