Fall Decorations

When I think of fall decorations, I cannot help but think about the amazing ways I can make my front porch ready for the brisk and colorful autumn days that lie ahead.  What better time is there than to spend sitting on the porch wrapped in a snug throw and sipping on some warm cocoa or a nice cup of hot tea? All I can say is it is my absolute favorite season of the year.

Whether my porch is adorned in happy and oddly shaped pumpkins or filled with a mixture of colorful mums, I am always delighted to find a neat idea to feature on my front porch each year.

Well, if you are looking for some great fall decorations to make your home warm and welcoming this season, here are some inspirations I have found to share with you for autumn 2014.

Create a unique focal point on your patio or front porch with an old wooden wheelbarrow. Fill it with an assortment of pumpkins, gourds or butternut squash and you have a nice little fall harvest scene.

Don’t forget the hay bails and rakes as they are effective ways to bring in the autumn days when you add them to your fall decorations.

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 wreath

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.

This wreath is just gorgeous. It can be used as a lovely addition to your fall decor and you can really make it work for a rustic Christmas theme with the pops of red.

This wreath really says fall is here. If you have pine trees near your home they will give you a wealth of cute little or even large cones to work with. Little sprigs of greenery and berries add some color to this design. A sweet orange ribbon tops it all off.
