Fall in love with these natural porch décor ideas.

Try these fall front porch décor ideas that pay homage to the season’s harvest and go beyond mums and average wreaths.
DIY stenciled leaf doormat
Fans of jute, rejoice! This textile isn’t just for creating summer coastal vibes, as Life is a Party shows with its fall-inspired doormat. They played the white paint up nicely with white pumpkins and fabrics for a monochromatic design, but just imagine it with a splash of color to match any hue you choose.
It’s hard to beat a DIY project that requires only three ingredients, one of which can be found right in your backyard. Country Living’s hanging pinecone cluster is a gorgeous alternative to the traditional round wreath. While they chose burgundy ribbon to help this fall decoration pop against a light-colored door, we think it would be just as striking with green ribbon, especially on a natural-wood door or if you’re looking for an easy transition to winter holidays.
DIY apple wreath
Pumpkins don’t have a monopoly on fall. The Wood Grain Cottage shows what you can do with faux apples, a foam wreath form and some burlap. They’re using it indoors, but there’s no reason you couldn’t make it part of your fall porch décor. If we were making this wreath, we’d be tempted to add a few cinnamon sticks to awaken all the senses.
Burlap and flower wreath
If you just can’t let go of the flowery wreath (we don’t blame you – fall offers such beautiful flowers), then try this DIY project from How to Nest for Less. What we find so eye-catching is the combination of bright colors with neutral burlap, not to mention the contrasting textures. This would be a great chance to prepare for winter, too. Simply change out the flowers or choose some with a style that will transition well to the colder months, maybe with the addition of a few sprigs of holly or some twinkling holiday lights.
One of the things we love about these fresh ideas is that you can add them seamlessly with the traditional fall décor you simply must have. Their reds and golds complement classic mums, and natural browns fit in perfectly with farmhouse-style homes, no matter how you dress them up.
