What’s that I smell? Could it be pumpkin spice? Yes, fall is here. For many of us, once the clock moves to 12:01 a.m. on Sept. 1, we’re all about saying so long to summer and hello to the changing leaves, cooler temps, sweaters, and scarves. Finding small ways to create joy at home sounds especially appealing with everything happening in the world, and your front porch or front door can be a fun place to start.

With fall decor in stores and family visits to the pumpkin patch being planned, we’ve rounded up four easy ways to bring the change of season to your front porch. Cute, catchy doormats, natural fiber wreaths, and some spooky Halloween decor are all on this list, along with a few styling tips to deck out your front porch for fall.

 

1. Layer Up Rugs and Doormats

We love the look of plaid or striped rugs under a traditional natural fiber doormat. Pithy sayings and seasonal graphics offer fun and festive options for your front porch.
