Easy and Cheap Front Porch Decor for Fall

If you want a cheap fall front porch decorating idea, keep reading. Not everyone likes to go all out for fall decor because Christmas is right around the corner and it’s definitely added work. But, maybe you want a smidge of fall festivity. Take a trip to the Dollar Tree, about 15 minutes and we’re all ready to go for fall with some easy and cheap front porch decor!

I  hope you have a Dollar Tree close to you. Everything is a buck. Everything. It’s my go-to if I want to make a craft with the kiddos or some really cheap seasonal decor. There’s a lot of potential in those one dollar aisles. And it’s how I got front porch decor for fall for around $9.

Easy and Cheap Front Porch Decor

It doesn’t get easier than faux flowers, a wreath, and a few buckets or planters. Whatever you have on hand.

Faux white, yellow, and red flowers lie next to a metal container.
Two metal containers filled with rocks and soil sit on a white towel next to pliers.
A front porch with two tables on either side of the front door and metal containers with red, yellow, and orange flowers inside.

I bought $9 worth of faux flower stems in bright fall colors. My house is pretty neutral but I like to add some color to the porch. And then I shopped my house. Use old planters, paint buckets, whatever you have. I had some flowers in these silver pails that were dying out so I scrapped them and used the buckets.

Trim the stems with wire cutters to fit and done! I had these old crates from a family member and they work perfectly on either side of the door. My mat is an old one from Target – it could use an updating for fall, but it’s still in great shape so no point in wasting money. Next, I chose a few stems to use on my grapevine wreath. Trim them a little shorter and stick them through the grapevines. A stick wreath with red and orange flowers decorating one side, hanging from a front door.

We love Halloween decor around here more than traditional fall decor so I’m not about to spend a ton of time or money on front porch decor. It’s coming down to make way for the skeletons and pumpkins soon. But that doesn’t mean I can’t freshen it up a bit for a few bucks.

It gives the porch a great pop of color instead of the summer cobwebs that were hanging out and it was super easy and cheap! A perfect fall front porch decor project you can do in no time.

Cheap fall front porch decorating gives your house a bit of festivity before the Christmas lights come out!

Thanks Wendy! I just can't bring myself to spend much when I know I want it simple and easy (plus, the Halloween stuff will be making an appearance soon!)
