I’ll just start by saying my porch was looking pretty sad. Summer is essentially gone and I had grand plans of getting it all spiffed up for summer. You know how grand plans often go. I got a new mat, put some flowers in a planter and then life happened. That was all that sad little porch got for summer. Sorry porch. But a trip to the Dollar Tree and 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
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.
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.
