Young and Crafty Sisters: Fall Porch

Fall Porch

Let me just tell you, I have been crafting my be-hind off. My cousin has a baby shower this weekend and I've been super busy preparing stuff for it and the baby. I've got plenty of fun stuff to share but that won't be until after next week.

I've also been sneaking in some other crafts! I've finally gotten my front porch decorated for fall.

You hear that? No? That's just my front porch screaming FALL!

I sorta, kinda, dislike strongly, my little front porch. That awkward space to the right needs something there. It's small and big at the same time. Too small for a bench and to big to put a simple pot or something.

I must say, I just love my cheesy little scarecrow. I think he's kinda cute!

Check out my corn stalks back there! I just love the extra added height. My husband, however, couldn't believe that I bought cornstalks. He said I should have just gone and gotten some from a corn field. Ummm... Louisiana doesn't have to many corn fields (if any). Men, what do they know about decorating?!

I made the garland around the door myself. I totally copied Under the Table and Dreaming's garland idea.

From the Dollar Tree, I grabbed up 16 stems (Yes, 16. Yes, I meant to get 15. No, I cannot count.) I then went to my yarn stash and got some neutral colored yarn and threaded the leaves onto it. I love that it's not a wimpy garland. $16 is kind of an expensive garland but if I wanted one this full I would have had to buy about 4 garlands or more.

Ahh I just love this part of fall... the decorating part that is!

I'll be back to share how I re-purposed that little chair. And I also changed out my wreath since this picture to make it a little more fallish.

What do you guys think of my little front porch?
