Pine Cone Wreath

Pine Cone Wreath

I love a nice pine cone wreath and with fall just around the corner I knew I needed to start thinking about some ways to really give my front door a personality befitting of the autumn season.

Of course pine cones are used in Christmas decorations but never underestimate the power of this rustic beauty during the colorful months of autumn.

Pine Cone WreathA foam wreath will just not hold the weight of pine cones nor will it properly keep its shape so I decided upon a grapevine wreath. It will not only hold the weight of the cones but it will also blend well if there are a few little spaces here and there that may show gaps. My favorite is Cinnamon scented cones. About 2 bags of these delightfully smelling mini cones will do the trick.Pine Cone Wreath DIYA glue gun is a must have for this project. I started filling in the middle row around the wreath with the larger sized pine cones gluing them along firmly as I went. Next, I used the smaller sized cones to fill in the tops and bottoms of the wreath.

Pine Cone WreathAfter filling my grapevine wreath with all of the cones and adorning it with a pretty green ribbon, it is ready to bring some sweet charm to my door. I love it!

So begins my little love affair with pine cone wreaths. I started seeking out some other creative designs to add to my wish list and you will be amazed at what I found.

Spring Decorating Ideas

I love these spring decorating ideas. They are so colorful and work wonders in waking up a sleepy winter home.

When spring approaches, we are all eager to escape the confines of winter and enjoy a breath of fresh air. Refreshing your front porch with seasonal décor tailored towards spring will most certainly make your front porch feel more lively and inviting for the upcoming season.

Spring Decorating Ideas

The first thing you should always do when getting your porch ready for spring is to perform a good clean-up job.   During the winter months, dead leaves and other debris tend to collect on the porch.  Sweeping and washing off your porch is a must do to prepare for the new season. If your porch is weathered and worn, a new coat of paint will really make it shine.

Spring Decorating Ideas

Spring is all about new life and growth. Flowers start springing forth and grass starts growing.   The same should hold true for your porch décor.  It is the time everyone starts getting out and about and what better way to make your home inviting than to dress up your porch for spring?

Adding pots filled with hardy flowers and other greenery that are tolerable of the ever-changing spring climate will bring your porch from a state of drab winter blues to a more perky and welcoming grand entryway to your home. Pastel colored flower pots are perfect for making your porch feel more in tune with spring. New chair cushions go a long way in reviving a winter weary porch. Colors such as light blue, green, pink, yellow or other friendly hues will make great choices for your new look.

Tips for front porch decorating ideas….

Choose your porch furniture according to the age groups of your users. Most older adults love bentwood rockers, comfortable wicker furniture with cozy cushions, and the classic porch swing. Teenagers, young adults and children do well with papa-san chairs, outdoor style bean bags and other lower sitting furniture choices. It is always good to have a combination of both styles of furniture on hand when in doubt.

Take the weather proofing qualities of your porch into consideration….

If your porch easily gets rain and other weather elements blown in then it is wise to be sure that your porch furniture is durable and weather resistant. There are several plastic substitutes for rattan furniture that really looks like the real thing and works wonderfully in all types of weather.

Add color and uniform style to your front porch décor….

If you have a grouping of mix-match furniture on your porch, you do not have to always go through the expense of purchasing new furniture that is all the same color. Using a high quality furniture paint will work wonders at getting everything the same color not to mention make your furniture look new again. Your porch will take on a look of professional decorating in no time. Color will add energy and life to your porch. Introduce bright and fresh colors in your upholstery, art and accessories to create pizzazz with your front porch decorating.

Add peaceful and relaxing sounds to your porch to create ambiance…

Table top or floor based water fountains will introduce a serene and calming environment with the sounds of waterfall to your porch. Wind chimes are also beautiful accessories to add zest and soothing sounds to your front porch scheme.

Art wakes everything up…

Just because your porch is outdoors, don’t think you must keep your walls bare. Large mirrors hung upon your porch walls will add dimension and reflect more of the beautiful outdoors, decorative outdoor signs and colorful wall art are pieces that will impress, as well as slate paintings to create a picturesque scene.
