Make your porch festive with these simple Halloween porch ideas.
Ever since last year when I saw this Fall porch, I knew when we finally had a house I would want a festive porch. Well now that we are in our first house for our first Fall, there was no more waiting around! Our front door area has been a little lacking in pizazz, so hopefully now it’s a little more inviting. And festive.
I painted a rug (super easy, cheap, and quick!) We’ll wait to get our decorating pumpkins at a pumpkin patch, but I just couldn’t resist these adorable sugar pumpkins at the grocery store for 50 cents!
I’d love to make a Fall wreath sometime, but in the meantime, I hung my $5 Witch Craft In Under an Hour, inspired by mom who made one years ago. It makes me happy because I still remember the day she made hers…she scoured the backyard for the perfect piece of old dog-earedwood in the backyard and then pulled the rest of the supplies from her random craft box.
If you’d like to make your own Fall/Halloween rug, here’s how:
How-to make your own DIY Fall/Halloween Rug:
- Spray paint an old outdoor rug black. I used the Wal-mart $1 spray paint and it worked great. It just needed a few coats. Make sure you spray the edges well.
- Using acrylic craft paint (also cheap at Wal-mart!) and a foam brush, paint chevron stripes or whatever other design you’d like. I started taping the stripes off, but then realized it would be easier and quicker to free-hand. If you are a perfectionist, tape it using heavy masking tape.
- Let it dry completely and that’s it!
- Put it on your front porch with pumpkins and have it happily welcome your Fall guests!
$1 for spray paint + 50 cents for white craft paint + 50 cents for a brush
