There’s nothing quite like the beauty of changing leaves, spending cozy afternoons with a blanket on the porch swing or sipping a pumpkin spice latte to get you in the mood for fall.

How do I make my front porch fall-themed?

Traditional fall decor incorporates rustic and farmhouse elements. Artificial pumpkins, gourds, corn on the cob, wheat sheaves and hay bales capture the essence of farm life and the Thanksgiving season. Garlands, wreaths and doormats in rich autumn colors, candle lanterns and vintage-style barrel planters filled with fall flowers are nice touches as well.

You may want to go with fall decor that also works for Halloween, such as scarecrows and corn brooms, the latter being a subtle nod to both witches and barnyards. Consider switching out existing throw pillows, throw blankets and area rugs with more festive options in red, yellow or orange.
