Fall is here and with that comes all the pumpkins, mums, and hay barrels, oh my! My Easy Fall Front Porch Decor is quick to put together and makes a colorful statement! With a combination of a few basic fall staples, you can put together an easy fall display!
This easy Fall Front Porch Decor is sponsored by Wagner. As always, all opinions are my own.
Are you a fall fan or are you still bemoaning the end of summer? I love the lazy days of summer and being off work, but I much prefer the fall weather and activities! I love fall festivals, football, and brisk weather! While we are still having some hot days, I was ready to get moving on setting out my easy fall front porch decor. I follow a super basic formula for my fall decorating.
What you need for an easy fall front porch
You only need three items to pull together a beautiful fall front porch
Pumpkins-vary the colors, all one color is boring. Make sure to get a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors. The textured pumpkins also add a nice touch!
Mums-the bigger the better! Pick your favorite color or use a variety. Mine are just starting to bloom.
Height Adding Element-use hay barrels, planters, benches, or crates. Anything you like that will help vary the height! This yellow bench has been hanging out in our foyer but looks perfect on the porch!
Once you get those basic elements, you are good to go! I like to group items in threes. It is best for visual variety.
I love repurposing items that I already have so I grabbed some planters from the garage and decided to paint them for some new life. Since I used a variety of colors, I wanted to ground this space by keeping the planters all the same colors. I also had some terra cotta dishes that I wanted a darker color.
Why use a paint sprayer for a small project?
Instead of buying a million cans of spray paint, I pulled out my trusty Wagner FLEXiO 3000 . It is so easy to use and gets any paint job done so quickly! I can use a quart of paint, which is cheaper and gives you so many more paint colors to choose from! I went with Sherwin William’s Urbane Bronze. It is black with a beautiful gold undertone. I laid all my items out on a tarp and went to town. I love that the FLEXiO 3000 comes with two nozzles. The smaller detail nozzle would have been perfect for this project, but I forgot to switch it out, so used the larger project nozzle and it still worked fine!
A long time ago I read a decorating tip that you should have a little black in every space in order to make the other colors pop. The urbane bronze is the perfect not too harsh black.
The big planters was a cheap plastic ones from the dollar store and the terra cotta ones were from Joanns. By painting them this deep bronze, they look expensive and really stand out against the bright fall colors. By using the same color, you get a cohesive look. I love that the dark bronze can work with any season as well, where as the terra cotta seemed only fall appropriate.
Looking for more paint sprayer projects?
To add more texture, I added the straw (from Big Lots), layered rugs (Joann’s/TJMaxx) and old lanterns that I bought years ago. Fall is about texture and layers, so add things until it looks right! You want warm and cozy, not sparse and sterile! It is hard to overdo it when it comes to fall decor! Start with the three essential fall items I shared above and then add whatever you like!
And then after taking all the photos I remembered that I wanted to put this adorable crate out there…whomp, whomp. Oh well, better late than never!!
