Once the air cools and starts to take on that funky something’s-dying/something’s-burning-somewhere smell, it’s go time. Time to decorate your front step and give it all you got.
And nothing is off limits! You can go full-on autumnal glory or give a wink to the frosty winter season to come. And you can use literally anything. Mums, straw bales, corn stalks, wreaths, scarecrows--these go without saying. Throw in some old wagons, ladders, rakes, birdcages, vintage bikes -- and now things are getting interesting.
For your fall front step inspiration, here are some fall decor ideas to fall-ify your front step this season.
White & Green Wreath
No one said your wreath can’t be white. This elegant vine wreath features all the required harvesty things, but in tones of white, green, and gold.
Buffalo Plaid Door Hanger
Ok, so maybe this isn’t a wreath, per se, but it’s round and it hangs on your door, and it’s pretty dang cute. Buffalo plaid and burlap keep it nice and midwestern and the friendly “hello” is oh-so Minnesota nice.
White Felt Wreath
If you’re like me and want to get the most mileage for your decor, this one could take you through the whole year, if you really wanted it to. For fall, white is the perfect foil for any color you want to throw at the rest of your ensemb and the clean leaf cutouts keep it cool and modern -- just like you.
This is the quintessential fall pot that aches for mums. Plus, there’s three of them so you can line them up on your steps or group them all together. And one reviewer said they smell like fresh-cut wood, so there’s that.
Wooden Wagon Planter
Look at this! A planter AND a wagon in one! Go ahead and load this baby up with the fall monty (see what I did there?). Pumpkins, mums, mini straw bales, colorful leaves -- everything will look better because it is in this wagon.
Antique Copper Planters
For a planter that can easily ride out all the seasons like it’s no big whoop, these patio planters look like they’re up to the task. The antique copper finish will look stunning with anything red, orange, or yellow in it, don’t you think?
Rustic Fall Porch Accessories
Light the way to your front door with these rustic wood candle lanterns. Fill with a flickering LED candle, a string of fairy lights, or pinecones. These would look adorable ascending your steps, flanking your doorway, or hanging on hooks.
No need to reinvent the wheel--literally. Go ahead and prop this cutie up on your porch for a touch of rustic or cottage charm. Darling as-is in either white or natural, or wrap with lights to illuminate your fall display.
Barnwood Window Frames
We can all thank the Chip-and-Jo effect for bringing barnwood into the mainstream. Like these rustically chic barnwood window frames. Add a natural touch to your fall front porch arrangement or layer under a boxwood wreath to hang on your door.
Galvanized Milk Can
A rusty galvanized milk can is equally eager to hold a bundle of twigs from your yard or garden center, or stand there on its own looking cute as ever. This classic vintage decor is an easy way to add a touch of rustic even if your vibe leans modern.
Fall Lighted Garland
Mini Pumpkin Lights
I mean Come. On. These are way too cute not to wrap around your front porch posts or decor that needs to be illuminated for an extra autumnal effect.
Acorn Mini Lights
If pumpkins aren’t your thing, maybe acorns are? These are super adorbs and can take you all the way past Thanksgiving until it’s time to hang up the icicles.
Fall Lighted Garland
If you liked the pumpkin lights AND the acorn lights, but were thinking, you know, if only it had some maple leaves, well have I got the thing for you.
