Fall Outdoor Decorations

Hi there! I just wanted to share my fall outdoor decorations today.

 
I keep my outdoor decorations simple.
 
This is my front porch. I love to put pumpkins in my planters. I also have three smaller pumpkins on my glider rocker. I have a wreath on the door and a couple of mums.
 
 
Here are some close-up's.
 
The wreath is from Hobby Lobby.
 
 
This scarecrow came from Hobby Lobby.
 
 
I got this pretty orange mum and owl planter from Wal-Mart.
 
 
 
 
In my front yard, I have a few elements that I add to the flower bed.
 
I bought this wooden pumpkin sign years ago at a craft fair. It has held up well over the years.
 
 
This is another fun sign that I bought years ago from Hobby Lobby.
 
 
The other thing that I love to do every year is fill up my bird bath with small pumpkins.  I love this look!!
 
 
 
 
 
I always have a flag in my front yard. Here is my fall flag. This came from Michael's.
 
 
Here is an overview of the front lawn.
 
 
 
 

For my backyard, I have these fun pumpkins and mum on my patio table.
 
My daughter had fun painting these pumpkins.
 
 
Here she is hard at work painting the pumpkins.
 
 
We have never painted pumpkins before but I kept seeing all of the cute painted pumpkins on Pinterest. I grabbed a couple of small pumpkins from Wal-Mart while grocery shopping and then we raided my stash of paints and stencils and Emily got busy. It was a fun project and hopefully a new tradition in our house.
 
 
 
I also have a flag pole that comes off of our pergola and you can see the flag inside the house so I always love changing out this flag. This is my pretty fall flag from Michael's. I will change it out next week for a fun Halloween flag.
 
 
Here is inside looking out at the flag.

Those are my outdoor fall decorations. Thanks for looking! Leave me a comment if you have your outdoor decorations posted on your blog. I would love to see them!!

  1. It looks great! So festive and cheerful.

    I have no outdoor decorations except a door wreath (Halloween right now, fall after that). Squirrels eat our pumpkins, so we can't put any out. I need to find a place to put some inside so the kids can carve them.

  5. Hi Shelly
    What a lovely blog!
    I especially love the signposts you’ve made
    outside and the flag.
    My little granddaughters in France would love making
    these. They decorate their house, yard and entrance gate
    so beautifully for Christmas so they would love to do
    something like this!
    Especially the sign which could point to North Pole etcet!!
    Shelly could I grab your photo please – I’ll wait until you
    let me know…….
    Also they would love painting the pumpkins!

    I’m your newest follower – you’ve inspired me!!
    Please come over and visit me and I’ll get out my
    prettiest tea cups to welcome you!

    Shane ♥ in New Zealand – far, far away!
