A great way to welcome the arrival of fall is to decorate your front porch with autumn flowers, gourds, pumpkins, and other adornments with a color scheme like yellow, orange, and red. Remember, the design you choose will set the atmosphere for your mobile home, from cozy and warm to classic and elegant.
Use autumn colors
Paint old wicker chairs bright red or reddish-orange and surround them with apple crates and pumpkins. To further make your front porch look festive and welcoming, hang a harvest wreath with a scarlet ribbon.
Create an autumn porch seating area
If you have lightweight patio furniture that looks a bit “summery,” you can swap it out with chairs with the classic autumn tone. Another alternative is to add a bench and layer it with throw pillows in warm fabrics.
Decorate with autumn flowers
Decorate your front porch with fall flowers like hypericum, dahlia, and mums in galvanized steel pails or metal planters. Then, complement them with pumpkin and gourds and an oversized rug made of natural fibers like hemp and jute.
You can also opt for long-lasting flower arrangements that use hypericum, spider mums, dahlias, and beech leaves. You can even use some dried summer florals like hydrangeas to give them a second life.
Balance out the summer tones
One of the cheapest and quickest ways to decorate your front porch is to use adornment that can balance out the summer tones. Examples include string lights or lanterns that emit a warm, yellow glow, a fall-leaf wreath, a floral arrangement with pine cones and orange foliage, pumpkins, and gourds.
Opt for a farmhouse style
Because of the use of rustic furniture, warm light, and bright accent colors, farmhouse style automatically exudes an autumn vibe. Fortunately, you don’t have to spend a fortune to achieve this look–just visit your local craft store or flea market to find charming but inexpensive vintage furniture and fall decorations.
Frame your front door and windows
Make your front door and windows pop by draping a fall garland around their frame. While you can use faux leaf garlands, why not create one with orange foliage, wheat, or other harvests?
Complete your decoration with pumpkins and gourds that sit on pedestals (like apple crates or upside-down buckets). You can also add a tree stump that will serve as a side table.
Display a harvest planter
If you have an old wheelbarrow or any large container, fill it with fall harvest and decorations like orange foliage, pumpkins, pine cones, leaves, wheat, and berries. To complete your autumn decor, hang a wheat wreath on your front door.
Paint your front door
If you have limited space, opt for paint with a reddish or orange tone to give your front door a festive look. To make it more cheerful, you can frame it with autumn garlands and place an oversized planter on one side.
Opt for something glossy and metallic
Hang a metal door wreath and fill your front porch with gold- and silver-painted pumpkins and apples to give it a more modern look. You can also add decorations with black and gray tones to make the area look more elegant.
Opt for spooky decorations
You don’t have to go “big” and spend big to achieve a spooky-looking front porch. Just paint faces on different-sized pumpkins, fill the area with a few farmhouse-style lanterns (or any lanterns will do), and hang a large DIY spider web made of a braided rope.
