Need some inspiration for simple outdoor fall decor? I’m sharing how I used simple fall items to create a welcoming entryway to our farmhouse. Stay until the end to see how a few of my friends added fall touches to their porches as well!
How to decorate an outdoor porch or patio entryway for fall:
Step 1: Gather some fresh seasonal decor that you love (e.g., pumpkins, guards, mums, cabbage/kale, hydrangeas, corn stalks, sunflowers).
Step 2: Collect items you already own that can be used with the items you purchased (e.g., old buckets, crocks, clay pots, faux pumpkins, wreaths, dried flowers, material scraps, old milk cans).
Sep 3: Place plants inside containers and use scrap material to cover the dirt. Place one on each step with the larger plants in the back. Next, add pumpkins. Try stacking a few for added interest. Then scatter smaller items throughout to tie everything together.

Farmhouse in the Fall
This is our first fall living at the farmhouse and I don’t think I could be any more excited! I found some unique pumpkins for a great price at my local grocery store and they inspired me to decorate our front porch.
Items Bought & Gathered
A common theme in my decor is mixing old with new and incorporating items I already own in new and different ways. For this look, I used an old milk can I scored at a flea market for only $5 a couple years ago, some old galvanized buckets, scrap burlap, clay pots, and faux pumpkins. That’s right, there are faux pumpkins in the mix! Four of the pumpkins, the limelight hydrangea plants, mums, and welcome mat were items that I purchased for this look.
On a side note, I love this welcome mat that I found for only $12! I think it really adds to the overall cozy inviting fall vibes I was going for. You can find this exact mat HERE.
Picking a Theme
I wasn’t sure what color scheme I was going to use this year until I found my real pumpkins. I just picked out my favorites, which happened to be mostly orange and green this year. They paired perfectly with some faux pumpkins I already had, along with my white mums and hydrangeas.
I purchased two limelight hydrangea plants to plant around the house before winter, but I thought they would look perfect on our fall porch while they are waiting to be planted in their permanent spots.
I hope you enjoyed seeing our fall front porch! Also, I hope this post inspired you in some way and served as a reminder that decorating indoors and outdoors can be much more affordable by incorporating items that you already own or that can serve multiple purposes.
