Fall and Halloween Porch Decorating Ideas in Photos

Front Porch Appeal Newsletter - Issue #86

Fall is in the air and Halloween isn't far behind. We enjoy both and know many of you do also. Mary and I wanted to share some of our favorite porch decorating ideas for this time of year.

Whether you enjoy a few simple decorative items or like to go all out, we think you'll enjoy seeing how others have decorated for the season and Halloween.

You'll find links to obtain additional fall and/or Halloween decorating ideas. We've also taken the liberty to provide sources for a few of the decorative items you'll see.

Fall Is Our Favorite Season

Enjoy Our Painted Leaf Pillow Topper Project

Our autumn porch - look at our pillows
We painted the backs of leaves and then rolled the painted leaves onto painter's drop cloth fabric to make our pillow toppers.

Plus you will need some fabric onto which you will be rolling the painted leaves and the paint will transfer to the fabric. We used painter's drop cloth as it is readily available, durable and very affordable. I washed the drop cloth before using it as that really softens it up.

You could use a rolling pin or just your hands (with gloves on) if you don't have a brayer like the one above.

Just brush colors onto the backs of leaves
We painted the backs of assorted leaves. Then I placed the painted side down and rolled over the leaves one by one to transfer the paint to the fabric.

Here is what the fabric looks like after I painted it and before we covered our pillows with it. We made several swatches like this and then wrapped the fabric around our pillows on the porch.

We've received some nice compliments on our autumn pillows. Does this look like a project you would enjoy?
