Get your Porch Ready for Fall
I may have the smallest front porch ever, but that didn’t stop me from adding a few fall touches out there. Hey, everyone! It is Kara from A Kailo Chic Life, and today I will share a few simple ways to add a little fall to your front door. A few pieces of felt, a stem of faux magnolia leaves, and a few pieces from the JOANN Fabric and Craft Stores Autumn collection is all you need to transform the front of your home for the new season.
The best way to create a cohesive look when decorating is to create a color palate. Once you have decided on your colors, try to keep all the decor pieces within that palate. I chose to decorate my front porch with shades of gray, mustard yellow, and navy with touches of copper.
Starting at the front door, I used this magnolia leaves garland to create a simple yet stunning wreath. Just bend the garland into a circle and twist the ends around each other to secure it. Then adjust the leaves to fill in any gaps and hang.
Inside the wreath, I added copper letters to spell out “Hello Fall.” I used this metallic adhesive copper/gold foil and my Silhouette Cameo to create the letters, and then simply added them to my door inside the wreath. This is a great way to add a fun touch for any season or holiday that you can completely remove once the next season comes without any damage to your door.
Around the edge of the front door I wanted to add a little color and fill out some of the white space, so I used three colors of felt sheets found in store at JOANN (light gray, dark gray and mustard yellow) to create a leaf garland.
Just cut out leaf shapes from your felt and then use a sewing machine to stitch them together into a long garland. Use thumbtacks to attach them to the door frame.
The final touch for the front porch was to add in a few pieces from the JOANN fall decor line that matched my color schemes, such as this basket with copper handles, copper lantern, knit pumpkins, gray plaid pillows (found in-store only), and a navy metal outdoor table.
I love the look of the navy, mustard yellow, gray, and copper together. What colors do you love for this fall?
