It’s almost October! I feel like I blinked and the year was gone. How are your fall decorations coming along? Honestly, I’m behind. I took a long break trying to get all the kids back to school and am just now getting back at it. How about you? Need some ideas? Check out what these 10 great bloggers came up with! (Links below the pictures.)
Welcome to my front porch! Of all the porches I have decorated and shared with you, this has to be my favorite so far. The colors, the foliage…I seriously love every element that went in making this porch happen. I tend to stick with traditional colors and textures in my fall porch decor, but this year I added some pretty jewel tones to the mix and they worked out perfectly.
I’ve included the entire source list for you down at the bottom of the post. Ready to see the porch?
It’s hard to see the tiered tray underneath the decor, but it’s the cutest little metal and wood tray that I found for $20 at Cost Plus World Market. The ceramic pumpkins were from Hobby Lobby and they fit in perfectly with the other colors.
Fall is right around the corner! I know some of you wish summer would never end. Here in Western KY though, it has been such a hot and humid summer that just about all of us here are ready for cooler fall weather.
Ever notice that there are some people who have the natural ability to find the cutest fall decor and create gorgeous vignettes with no problem at all? Believe it or not, that wasn’t me. Crafty, yes. But decorating didn’t come naturally; it took me a few years to develop that skill. The great news–if you are challenged in the decorating department but really want to add some cute fall touches to your house, I am here to help get you started. The best part–8 of these items are under $20!

Nothing says ‘fall is here!’ like a mantel decked out for the season. There are so many different trends going on right now (classic, rustic, neutral, colorful, etc…) and I love all of them! Here are 15 that caught my eye. I’ve listed the links below the pictures so be sure to stop by and give them some blog love. 🙂
Adding a little sparkle to your front porch or living room for fall couldn’t be easier thanks to this simple glitter pumpkin craft. You can use any color you want and if you have a glitter-obsessed child like I do, they will love helping with this craft! Here’s what you need:
Pumpkin (mine was artificial)
Mod Podge, any finish
Apply Mod Podge to every other ‘stripe’, but not all at once. Do one stripe at a time so the Mod Podge doesn’t dry on you.
Using a spoon, sprinkle glitter over the place where you have Mod Podged. Repeat until your pumpkin is done.
Once your glitter stripes are dry, your glitter pumpkin is ready to display!

I found this great mirror two years ago at a thrift store for $3. It was perfect for a chalkboard upcycle, but I just never got around to it and basically forgot that I even had it.
Then I started making plans for my fall porch decorations and was so excited to find the mirror tucked away in the garage! Making it over was not hard at all. Here’s what I used:
Valspar Satin Hubbell House Golden Maize spray paint
Krylon Black Chalkboard spray paint
Sand paper (I used fine grit)
First, I covered the mirror with painter’s tape and paper. Without using primer, I spray painted the frame with the Valspar Hubbell House Golden Maize (it took two coats).
Once the frame was dry, I removed the tape from the mirror and taped off the frame. I spray painted the mirror with the Krylon Chalkboard paint. It took about 5 thin layers to cover the mirror completely and evenly. (Good news is, the chalkboard paint dries quickly!)
When the chalkboard paint was completely dry, I removed all of the painter’s tape and sanded the edges of the frame until I got the level of distressing I wanted.
After I wiped off the dust from sanding, I added my text (Click here to see an easy way to do this).
All done! My fall porch decorating is underway! I can’t wait to show you.
