Even though the weather today felt more like summer than fall, my front porch entryway is all ready for the fall season! I made my wreath for the front door with corn husks and a few faux berries and fall leaves mixed in for color!
I like having a storm door, but not when it comes to taking photos – it’s hard not to get myself in the picture with the door’s reflection! So, I have views from the right and also the left! I’ve got a real mixture of elements – straw bales, mums, pumpkins . . . but I’m pretty happy how it came together.
The lantern is from Pottery Barn and I purchased it at the outlet in the spring for a steal! Here it holds a large battery operated candle with some chestnuts and walnuts at the base.
The cabinet door chalkboard announces that Fall is Here!
Here’s the view from the left – I was peeking through the lavender!
The crock is filled with tree branches and some sorghum. The oversized pumpkin is a new variety for me – I love the pale cream and orange color! An old wire basket holds a rust colored mum wrapped in burlap!
This chippy little piece of wood still holds some rusty hinges on one end. It must have been a small cabinet door. I bought it a long time ago because I loved the color! It’s very similar to the color of my front door! A local craftsman made the numbers from a piece of rusty tin – 50 is our house number. I hot glued the tin numbers to the chippy wood and propped it against the straw bale! I am loving the orange color of the pumpkins against the chippy aqua blue wood!I’m still working on other fall projects and will be back later this week with more to share!
