There was a bit of a lukewarm response to the Decoupaged Pumpkins yesterday. I’m picturing you all reading it with a quirked eyebrow, and muttering, ‘Mmmmmkay, those were a stretch. I think it’s time for someone to take a bloggy break!’
It wouldn’t be the
fifth first time my sanity was questioned. But I think they are pretty cute in the Front Porch setting!
I felt like the porch could use some height, so I brought out the candlesticks that normally live in the Entrance Hall. (You can read how I transformed the candles in this post.)
I grouped two of the Decoupaged Pumpkins with one of the Tricked Out Pumpkins leftover from Halloween. I prefer my outdoor seasonal decor to look natural, not mass produced, so the leaves, jute and sisal worked well.
The lanterns (which I madeover here), are filled with straw, acorns and mini-pumpkins.
One of our pumpkins had a little accident last year, so we had to replace the welcome mat. We’ve been really happy with the monogrammed Ballard mat. It’s held up great, and isn’t too stiff underfoot. TWSS
Our Halloween Porch contained many of the same elements, so it was an easy transition.
Of course, this Fall Porch will be short lived, since Christmas is AROUND THE CORNER?!?!
Have you done much Fall decorating, or are you holding out for Christmas? Enjoy your weekend, lovebugs…I know I will! Tomorrow is my birthday and Mr. Sugarplum arranged for the kids to have a sleepover with the in-laws!! Woop! Is it awful that I’m really just dying to get back to my unfinished projects?!
