Welcome to the October Pinterest Challenge! Every month my blogging friends and I get together to share projects inspired by Pinterest. This month I’m sharing my fall decorations for a small front porch. I love decorated front porches. Sadly, my porch is quite small and doesn’t have a lot of room for decor So I’m always looking for ideas that can make a big impact in a tight space.
My porch this month was inspired by the small front porch featured by Crating Chicks. I liked how the simple crate adds dimension to the decor, and I love the addition of a lantern!
This month has been a busy one for my family. My daughters joined their school’s marching band this year, which requires a lot of hours. On Saturdays, we go to their marching band competitions, which take all day. I made my porch decor really simple and easy this year, since I didn’t have a lot of time to shop!
On my porch is a plain wood crate that I stained with a dark walnut wood stain.
On the top of the crate I placed a purple potted mum, as well as a craft pumpkin that I painted with turquoise spray paint. I like how new colors are being used in fall decor these days, in addition to the traditional orange and black. Inside the crate I put a yellow potted mum.
Next to the crate I placed a cute “Home Sweet Home” yard sign that I found at a local store. (I like the sign so much that I didn’t want to leave it out in the rain in the yard.) On the other side of the crate I placed a pretty turquoise lantern.
I like how my simple and quick fall front porch decor turned out! The bright colors make me smile when I arrive at my home’s door — I hope it makes others smile, too!
