Come Fall Into My Front Porch!

Hey guys! Sorry I haven't been around for a few weeks, time seems to just go by so fast! I have added some fall decor to the front porch, join me for a tour! All of these pictures are taken at night, the porch during the day gets a ton of sunlight, so it's pretty hard to photograph!


 I made the mesh wreaths using a floral foam wreath form, two different colors of mesh which I got from Joann's, Fall riboon, leaves and pumpkins. I used floral pins or greening pins to secure everything into place. 


 I hung them on command hooks, the second outdoor door doesn't open. We can't seem to find the key, so there is no way of hanging a wreath hanger.


I made the pumpkin topiaries, I have been wanting to make some since last year. I really would have liked them to be sitting on urns, but I couldn't find any so pots will have to do for this year!


I placed them on grapevine wreaths I added some mesh to the wreaths with leaf garland, to attach them all together I cut a hole in the bottom of each pumpkin and then hot glued them on and added leaf garland. I added a bow on  top with some fall ribbon. I think they turned out cute! I had some left over mesh from the wreaths, but didn't have enough of each color to add both, so I just added one color on each.


 Here's Mr. & Mrs. Scarecrow! :) I got them a few years ago at Joann's, I think they are so cute! I got the flag the other day at Walmart.



Well, that's it for today guys! I hope you enjoyed my Fall Porch! 

Have a great week!!
