Continuing with my Fall decorating wagon, this time the turn is for the front porch. Does it happened to you? That once you have lots of stuff around the house you just want to go and put everything where it belongs or where you think is going to look good this year?! Well I'm doing that!
One of the problems I encountered is that many of the things I already have are not that interesting any more and buying new stuff was not an option an less is an extremely good sale, which I didn't find!
So, let's be resourceful and use what we can afford! besides, Fall time decoration is bringing the outdoors in! Leaves, pine cones, branches...
I went to the wooded area beyond our back fence and there I picked some leaves, tall grasses, branches, vines, and even those little "grapes" I have no idea what they were?
I took an old little basket, some fake fruits, a wooden leaves wreath, a doll and whatever I could find, and began assembling my door arrangement. I began by placing the tall grasses and some branches onto the foam, then miss long legs dolly was sitted to the side, followed by the leave garlands and fruits,
until it was ready to be placed on the front door! It's not perfect but I'm happy with the way it turned out! hmm ... those grasses are a bit too high :s
There weren't many colorful leaves in my backyard, mainly green, but that was not a problem! I asked my buddy boy boy to go and find some from around the hood, and pretty quick on his bike he returned with good splashes of color!
Miss Long Legs happy to be on the spot light!
Some mums and pumpkins framing the entrance.
A couple weeks ago I found two of these baskets in the trash bin of a restaurant. How fishy they smelled made me kept them outside all the time!
The begonias I planted in Spring time are still going strong.
The cheap plastic pumpkin my kids used to collect candies got a new face lift and its posing here with her new pretty plaid dress! You can check how to do that HERE.
A simple makeover for about 20 bucks for the mums and the pumpkins is what makes me happier!
