10 Fall Decor Ideas

Scarecrows, sunflowers, pumpkins, hay bales; what do all these items have in common? I need one of each for my porch this fall season. How about you? How do you like to decorate your house and exterior for Fall? Tell me in the comments. 

For now, lets discuss 10 Fall Decor Ideas, shall we?

#1: Whiskey barrel planter: Recently, I fell in love with these planters after visiting my local Home Depot and Lowe's. Want some links where you can purchase a few? No problem:

Home Depot// 26 in. Half Whiskey Barrel Planter...A few things I am going to mention will need to sit inside something (planter) to stand up straight and fit the way you want, so why not place the sunflowers, small pumpkins, some hay, etc. into one of these planters?! I cannot wait to get my hands on one of these and arrange one myself.
Do you see my vision? Comment below.

More options:

#2: Sunflowers(artificial or not): Is it really Fall without sunflowers? I didn't think so. Hobby Lobby is a great place to purchase artificial sunflowers that require no water or sunlight, and look great on the front porch. HL also has the best sales and sometimes puts florals on so watch out for those!

#3: Bales of hay: Every porch decorated for fall needs a bale of hay or two. Check out your local A.C. Moore for Flora Craft Bales of Beauty or if you prefer to purchase online, you're in luck. Here's a 16 inch Straw Bale(1 for $7.99 or 3/$21), 13 inch(1 for $4.99 or 6/$24.99), and 5 inch (1 for $2.99 or 20 for $40.99) Bulk prices are awesome for festivities and events. 

#4: Seasonal sign

#5: Pumpkins: Most people prefer real pumpkins they pick with their family, but I like the artificial kind for the porch. That way, they can be used over & over again for years to come, and don't stink. Head to your local pumpkin patch or grab an assorted pack here, which contains 12 pieces of artificial pumpkins & gourds.

#6: Scarecrows:

#7: Artificial leaves or garland:

#8: Pinecones and sticks: Let's be real for a minute-go outside & find some, spray paint or clear coat, and viola pinecones suitable for decorating. If you just have to purchase some, you might as well get a variety pack. Check this out> Fall Florals-Amazon

#9: Silver bucket with handles: You know the buckets I am referring too, right? Galvanized buckets...some have rope or wooden handles. Do you need some examples?
I really love this Metal Milk Can 15 in. for artificial flowers, wheat branches, and things with long stems. 
However, short items such as small pumpkins & garland need something shallow like this Galvanized Serving Tray
You can sit a serving tray on a hay bale then place a scarecrow next to it for a quick fall decor idea.

#10: Halloween items(ghost, witches, skulls, etc.)
