Easy and Simple Front Porch Fall Decorating Ideas on a Budget

Nothing is prettier than a beautiful front porch, even better when your fall decorating ideas are on a budget.

Fall is one of the best times to decorate your front porch. The cooler weather and changing leaves provide the perfect opportunity to spruce up your outdoor space and welcome guests into your home. But if you’re on a tight budget, you might be wondering how you can make your porch look its best without breaking the bank. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to decorate your fall porch on a budget. Here are just a few ideas to get you started.

Front Porch Fall Decorating Ideas on a Budget are endless. Let’s list a few.

Create a wreath for your front door

Make your own wreath. A wreath is a great way to add a touch of fall to your porch without spending much money. You can easily make a wreath using items like leaves, branches, berries, and flowers that you can find for free in your backyard or at a local park. If you want to get even more creative, try incorporating other Fall-themed items like mini pumpkins or acorns into your design.

I find much of what I use when walking or wandering the pumpkin farms. I collected these corn stalks from my garden last year and added a cut-up burlap bag to a simple wooden wheel I had at home. Super easy and budget-friendly.

You can also dry hydrangeas from your yard and create a free wreath.

The Dollar Tree is always filled with great treasures you can create for only a few dollars. I purchased a round wreath, some rope, and a few fall sprigs to create this rope wreath.

Create Beautiful Pumpkins and Gourds

Get creative with pumpkins and Gourds. Pumpkins are one of the most iconic symbols of fall, so they make the perfect addition to any fall porch decoration. But instead of buying pumpkins from the store, get creative and try making your own. You can see my post on transforming Dollar Tree Pumpkins into realistic pumpkins here. You can paint them, carve them, or even decoupage them with scraps of fabric or paper. If you’re feeling crafty, you can try making pumpkin topiaries by attaching pumpkins to dowels or branches.

Adding Throw pillows on your chairs or benches in an affordable way to decorate

They will be the finishing touch on that simple outdoor seating area you’ve been planning all year long, don’t miss out on this great offer while it lasts – there are only a few weeks left before these items sell out quickly!!

I have found these adorable pillows that are budget friendly and will add to your front porch decor.

Another Way to Add Color to your Front Porch Fall Decorating Ideas on a Budget

Do you love these trees on my porch? Well, I looked for faux trees, which were so expensive, so I made them.

I took a few birch branches off our tree and secured them into some plaster of Paris in a bucket that would fit into my planter.

I then drilled holes into the branches and placed some birch twigs and preserved leaves into the holes.

You can watch this tree come to life here.

But, just in case you are not up to making one, I found a few reasonable options.

You can create a paper garland from old book pages and drape it over your pumpkins. Just be sure they are under a covered porch.

Add lanterns and candles for ambiance.

And don’t forget fresh mums. A fall porch wouldn’t be the same without a few fresh plants.

Having a blanket or two on the porch for those chilly nights is always nice. Unfortunately, we don’t get them too often in California, but I still love the look of a blanket hanging over a chair or a bench.

Decorating your fall front porch doesn’t have to be expensive. With a bit of creativity, you can quickly transform your outdoor space into a warm and welcoming oasis that will make all of your guests feel at home. So what are you waiting for? Get started on decorating your porch today!
