I seriously love Fall so much! It seriously makes me so excited to think about getting all my Fall decor out (which I am planning on doing this week)! And, lets not even talk about all the traditions that come along with the cooler weather!! But, today we’re gonna talk about the area I love to enjoy and decorate the most – my front porch! I always like to make one or two new items per season for my porch! So, today I’m gonna be sharing 10 Fantastic Fall Porch Projects!
All these projects are something that you can finish on a Saturday – some in an hour or two and others that may take a few hours! But all of them will for sure add some Fall flavor to your porch!

I am pretty much obsessed with these and am going to for sure be making some for my porch decor this year! They have such an amazing look about them!
These are great, because you can easily customize them to any size and look. Also, you gotta fill them with some Mums, which in my option, is the perfect Fall flower!
This link doesn’t have a tutorial, but I totally feel like anybody that has used a nail gun could recreate this! Also, the other really cool part of this project is that on the reverse side there is a snowman!
I know this isn’t so much a single project, but I just loved this whole look so much I had to feature it. Your day would be spent more collecting these items and using them to decorate. Find some corn husks, an old ladder and a hay bale and your porch will be ready for Fall! Imagine some of the Dry Brush pumpkins in the galvanized bucket!! PERFECTION I tell you!
You could easily paint the pumpkin to give it some more personality. I also love the idea of doing pumpkins of all sizes, colors and shapes and lining stairs up to the front door!
Seriously how great are these projects? And some are soo simple, but can make a huge impact on your front porch!
Hello! My name is Rebekah and I normally blog at Charming Imperfections, but today I’m so excited to have been invited by Pam to share a little project of mine. I became a bit of a DIY fanatic when we bought our house last year and had to live on a budget. Creating or restoring the things we use for decor or furniture in our little cottage is so fun and rewarding and this project is no different.
With the weather starting to cool down (at least where I reside) we are realizing more and more that fall is just around the corner. Now, what would be better than to celebrate the change of season than by giving our homes some beautiful autumn décor? I thought this to myself just before realizing that we don’t actually have any beautiful autumn décor and definitely don’t have the budget to go out and buy much. So, the only solution would be to make something with materials I had on hand.
This chicken wire and twine fall decor was created to hint subtly towards my favorite season. This project takes about 3 hours and less than $20 to make if you have to buy materials. So, let’s get started!
Tools and materials needed are:
- 1- 1’x3’x10’
- 3’ Chicken wire
- Wire cutters
- Paint or stain
- Safety gloves
- Kreg Jig
- 1 ¼” Kreg screws
- Wood glue
- Power drill
We’ll get right to it by starting with the frame. If woodworking isn’t your thing, you can always buy a sturdy frame and remove the glass.
Cut your 1×3 board into four sections using the following measurements:
- 2 @ 13 ¾”
- 2 @ 35”
Next, use your Kreg jig to drill pocket holes into the ends of the shorter pieces.
This is such a fun tool! Once you have your pre-drilled holes, go ahead and use wood glue and a clamp to screw the short boards to the long boards.
This is a good time to go ahead and paint or finish the frame so it has time to dry.
Now for the more time consuming part of this project. It’s also the part that you’ll want to put on your safety gloves. That chicken wire can be mean stuff! Cut a section out of your chicken wire that is about 18 by 34 inches or just short of the outside edges of your frame.
Stretch the wire out and set some books on it to prevent it from curling up on you. Next, I printed out a shape of a leaf to use as a guide. You can find similar leaves by following this link and printing out the one of your choice.
Once you’ve printed the leaf out, stick it under the chicken wire and follow those lines with a section of twine you cut. There was a lot of trial and error with this for me, so be ready to take your time on it. The best tip I learned through the process is that it’s best to start at the top of the leaf with the tip being the center of your twine.
Continue looping the twine around the chicken wire until you reach the end of the stem. Tie a little knot to secure it and keep making leaves until you fill the space. Try some different shaped leaves for variety.
Once you are satisfied with the twine leaves on the chicken wire, check and see that your frame is dry and flip it upside down on a table. Stretch the wire over the back of the frame and staple it down starting at the corners and working your way around.
After seeing the finished product I decide to add the word “Fall” to one of the corners.
Hang your creation up on the wall and enjoy how pretty it looks!
The air feels a little cooler lately and there’s no better time to get started on making some fall art than now. This simple fall décor is rustic, subtle and so easy to make! I hope you’ve enjoyed this tutorial and enjoy the start of fall as much as we do.
I am getting excited for Fall you guys! I was chatting with a friend about how ready I am for the cooler weather and all the fun Fall traditions we do each year and somehow (shocker!) it transitioned into our favorite Fall desserts! I couldn’t help but go to the store later that day for some Pumpkin Puree, so I could make one of my favorites – Pumpkin Cheesecake Puffs! This is my go to Fall dessert when I’m wanting something that is a little less heavy!
