Over this past week I have completed my porch decorating for Fall!
I think I am the only one in our neighborhood so far so I wanted to
keep it simple but festive!
Below are some pictures of the space and two easy projects I
did to make it all come together!
Well I guess I actually made three things for our front porch!
The wreath below I already had but decided to just jazz it up by adding two
floral picks from Hobby Lobby, a couple little pumpkins, and a bow!
Below you can see the wreath on the door and all of our Fall Flair!
I really love how pretty it looks! I wanted to add a couple more
things but I was afraid it would look too busy!
Here is a close up of the front door area.
I really love how the pumpkins turned out! This is another project
that I did for this space:)
Here is just another little sitting area that I decorated to tie everything together!
I love to see how others paint and decorate their pumpkins this time
of year but have never really had any success with painting my own.
So then I remembered I had some left over vinyl up in my craft room and thought it
would be a perfect solution to decorating these pumpkins!
Our address is 45 so I thought it would be cute to incorporated that into
the display. So I used black vinyl and my Cricut machine to cut out the
numbers and there you have it! Easy as pumpkin pie :)
The other pumpkin I monogrammed and cut circles out to
give it the polka dot pattern! Beats spending the close to $20 at Hobby Lobby for
a similar version!
Lastly I wanted to share with you the pretty pillows on my rocking chairs out front.
Pillows can really be expensive and if you have a bunch for different seasons, a challenge
to store. So the other day when I was at Hobby Lobby I wondered back to the
fabric area and found a huge department of pillow covers! Much to my surprise they
were very affordable too! Below you will see my out door pillows from this summer
ready to be covered!
All I did here was throw the pillow in the case and zip her up! Now that is
mind kind of sewing project:) The flower you see on the pillow below are actually
fabric flowers used for scrapbooking. I found them in the discount section for only $2.39
and thought they would be a nice addition to this pillow design. The great thing about
them is that I just used black push pins to hold them in place so I will be able
to use this below in more designs/seasons than just one! So for a total cost
of $7.04 I was able to create a new look that I can use over and over again
on my front porch! They have a ton of different colors so make sure to check
out this section the next time you are in a Hobby Lobby!
Well I hope maybe you got an idea or two that you can use around
your own house!
I will be joining these great blog parties!!
Happy Friday!Mrs. C
