It’s time to swap out those warm weather decorations and make way for some autumn décor. Make a great first impression with your guests by adding fall-inspired touches to your outside entryway.

As guests are welcomed into your home you want it to look both attractive and inviting. Most people typically do not have a lot of space in the area of their outdoor entrance, so you will only need to add a few eye-catching pieces. A little can go a long ways. I especially designed my outside entryway to transition smoothly from harvest season to Halloween to Thanksgiving.

Fall Entryway

Don’t forget about the texture and layers.

I get the look of layers to my entrance by arranging various-sized pumpkins on the porch steps alongside vintage inspired lanterns and sweet-smelling mums in an eye popping white. Texture is added with the eye- catching assortment of pumpkins- carving, pie pumpkins, and Cinderella are all intermingled together. I even added in my foam craft pumpkins which I made look realistic. Learn the tutorial here. The foam craft pumpkins are great to use because the last year after year!

Hang a Fall Wreath

The best way to get some fall flair to your front porch is to hang up a wreath And it’s super easy. Go all out with a harvest wreath or keep it understated with an elevated seasonal wreath like this one.

Make it fun.

A whimsical element was brought in with the vintage oil can made into a jack- o’lantern. I bought it three years ago at the Round Top Antiques festival in Texas. I couldn’t resist when I saw it. The dealer who was selling them had about 50 so it was hard to decide which one I wanted. You can get a similar oil can pumpkin at these sites here and here.  Or just Google ‘gas can pumpkin’.

Go all out.

The neighbors will stop and admire the beautiful colors in a topiary. By placing stacked pumpkins on display it turns a standard porch into an elegant entryway and welcomes guests with all of fall’s warm happy shades.
