Fall is my very favorite — I absolutely love decorating our front porch porch and window boxes for the season. I has so much fun this year and am even waiting longer than I usually do to transition to Halloween decor.
Here’s a zoomed out look at our front porch!
Now, let’s take a closer look!
I’ve been collecting faux pumpkins for years, and this year I decided to add a ton of them to our front porch decor. They’re so impactful, especially with some uplighting and fairy lights shining on them at night.
I started by stacking 3 medium sized hay bales from Michaels, then adding some fresh fall flowers from Lowes. Then I added about 25 pumpkins in various colors and sizes (mostly from Michaels, Amazon and the Target Dollar Spot).

The 3 hay bales help to fill the space and add height and dimension.
All of these pumpkins, except for the metallic gold spray painted ones, came in these colors. I love how they all work well together, but I’m never afraid to spray paint pumpkins to get the look I’m after.
Once the pumpkins were all placed to my liking, I added a handful of fall plants to the mix (mums, ornamental cabbage, and heirloom celosia).
I also added two of the DIY drill hole luminary pumpkins I made last year and filled them with some outdoor lights for an extra night time glow.
A closer look at some outdoor fall decor details
A few faux pumpkins and a small potted mum adds a touch of fall to the garden stool table next to my beloved outdoor Kurv chair I found for $50 at Home Goods. If you’re on the hunt, they also sell them at Target and Home Depot.
I love my outdoor striped pillow and seem to find a way to work it into my decor every season.
To add some color, I stacked an indoor pillow on it for the photos, but then shopped my house and found a gold and white outdoor pillow that I forgot about — it does better out in the elements.
Until now, I’ve never planted ornamental cabbage, but I’ll definitely be adding it in every fall moving forward. I love how unique and pretty it is mixed with mums!
Next to the door, I added the beautiful heirloom celosia flowers in the pot they came in. I spray painted the plastic pot metallic gold to give it a more elevated look.
Our customized fall front porch rug
Here’s a zoomed out look at this little corner with the cute Target “hello” outdoor rug my daughter and I customized with some acrylic paint. It’s stacked on top of our plastic outdoor striped rug from IKEA a few years ago.
We chose the paint colors for the rug based off our our DIY front door pumpkin wreath that I made last year.
This angle shows the rug and wreath together at an angle.
I really like how the outdoor fall decor on the porch came together, but I couldn’t stop there, so I moved onto our 3 window boxes next.
A few years ago, I made this large DIY window box and love to decorate it for the holidays!
I gathered more faux pumpkins, which were mostly all orange, and spray painted a handful of them gold, coral, and white. Once they were dry, I placed about 10 of them in the window box along with some faux fall floral sprigs from Michaels.
I usually use real ferns in our window boxes, but decided to use faux ferns this year. Nearly Natural makes some very realistic looking plants that I love to use in the colder months.
I decided to take the window box up a notch by adding a strand of outdoor plug in fairy lights. I love how dainty and pretty they are at night!
We recently made two more DIY window boxes to go in the street-facing windows on our second floor. I added some faux greenery, pumpkins, faux florals, and fairy lights to them as well.
