I bet you’re thinking, “Oh yay, their porch is finished!”
In fact, it hasn’t seen any real progress since I last shared an update.
And as not so fun as that is, that’s just the way these things go sometimes.
But I couldn’t let pumpkin season pass me by without doing a little decorating outside. Let’s face it, sometimes you just have to embrace the current imperfections and go with it.
So we may not have railings or a perfect coat of paint on anything, but we do have glorious pumpkins, beautiful mums, gorgeous corn stalks, and a fun Halloween front door.
I always keep my eyes open at flea markets and garage sales for any and all kinds of metal buckets. When I find one on the cheap, I grab it and use it for a planter. These were all snagged for $5 or less and they add a nice, rustic farmhouse appeal to porch décor.
I don’t usually do a lot of Halloween decorating, but this year I wanted to add a little Halloween flair to the front door, so I put together this cute bat themed look based off something I saw on Pinterest.
I already had the wreath, and the bats came from two different kinds of bat garland I found at Target (the smaller bats were in the Dollar Spot and the larger bats were with the regular Halloween decorations) – I just cut them from the garland, secured them to the door and hung the wreath over top.
Not only easy, but super cute too, right?
Orange and white pumpkins in different shapes and sizes, a few bundles of corn stalks, and I kind of almost forget we don’t have any railings on this little porch.
