Everyone is very busy these days with the children going back to school. Today, I want to share with you my easy fall porch decorating ideas.
Can you believe today is September 1st? It is hard to believe that summer is almost over with and many of the children have gone back to school.
Do you feel like there is no time to decorate? I got you!
I am going to show you how to decorate your porch in less than 15 minutes. How? Just keep it simple.

First, I used the same wreath as last year. Why make or buy a new one when this one still has it’s beautiful vibrate colors. I love the fall colors in this wreath.
The bow from last year still looks great. This same ribbon, I saw in Joann Fabric Store. Look at those beautiful fall colors.
I also used the same outdoor pillows. These Faux Natural Fiber Pom Pom Indoor/Outdoor Pillow are perfect for the summer or fall. I love the natural color against the dark black rockers.
The SAFAVIEH Outdoor Living Natum Victorian Iron 2-Tier Plant Stand, a few decor items that I had on hand finished it off perfectly.
My splurge this year, the purchase of two of these metal Tall Luminary Pumpkins. Add a tall flicker candle or fairy lights with a timer in the pumpkin. These pumpkins look amazing on the front porch. They can be used inside or outside. I purchased two for each side of the door. One of these pumpkins would look so beautiful on a fireplace hearth or an entry table.
To make my pumpkin urns
1. Emply out the urn
You can add either a large flicker candle or some fairy lights inside the pumpkin. I will make the pumpkin a luminary. It does not come with lights.
I like to use lights on a timer. This way, the pumpkins will pop on at night. The fairy lights will need to me taped inside to hold it place with the pumpkin being so large. This way, you can have the pumpkin light up from top to bottom.
You only need one garland for each pumpkin. You can either cut or bring the it around another loop around the front to make it fuller. I will link below the two pack of garland for this project. It is available in lots of color choices.
4. Finished Look
During the day, the punch of colors looks lovely on the porch. As we get into the September month and the temperatures cool down, I will add fresh Mums in planters to the porch as well.
A night the luminaries sparkle on the porch.

Kimberly Jones Snyder says
Such pretty fall colors! I really love the pumpkin luminaries in the urn! thank you for sharing!
Thank you, Kimberly for the sweet comment.
Everything looks beautiful! The best part about the pumpkins is that you can use them from now until you are ready to decorate for Christmas. If you wanted to you could decorate the pumpkins to look like jack’o’lanters for Halloween simply by using this, https://amzn.to/2VqhJHO, cut the shape of eyes, smile and voila a jack’-‘lantern.
Love this post and am off to look at these lanterns!
Elizabeth, that’s such a fun idea. I found the best pumpkin for candy this year. I stubbled on it in Marshalls. It is a wooden over size jack-o-lantern with silver ornate handles. It is so pretty without being cutesy.
Such cute pumpkins! you know I have never decorated with real pumpkins and am thinking of maybe doing that this year. I know… Shame on me. LOL!
Melba, I love all things pumpkins. You can never have enough. LOL
