Welcome back to the First Ever Holiday Craftacular Blog Hop! As mentioned yesterday (link here), throughout the year, my blogging friends and I will share our holiday/seasonal projects. If you’re a fellow blogger, we’d love for you to share a fall-related project, recipe or craft at our link up below! We’ll share our linky party favorites at our next Holiday Craftacular blog hop as well as our Holiday Craftacular Pinterest Board!
Meet the Holiday Craftacular bloggers below! Don’t forget to follow your Holiday Craftacular hosts. 🙂
I usually enjoy decorating with a lot of different pots, mums-galore, colorful pillows, pumpkins, etc. Maybe one year I will do an all neutral porch, because I do like to change it up a little every year. 🙂 This year I decided to fill my new galvanized bucket with a couple of mums and I snuck a mini-white pumpkin in with them. I always buy my mums when they are all buds (so they last longer) and I can’t wait for them to bloom.
Here is the personalized galvanized bucket that says ‘Carrie’s Garden’ and it is filled with some mums and a white pumpkin. In the spring I had it filled with bulbs and wave petunias.
Here is this entire little space. When Oct. 1st hits, I can turn the pumpkin pot around and it has a jack-o-lantern face on the other side. 🙂
I have a wooden chicken wire wagon that I purchased at our grocery store last year and I painted it white (it was an ugly green color). The mini hay bails are from Hobby Lobby and I reuse them every year. And, yes… those are real pumpkins I picked up at the grocery store. We usually don’t hit the pumpkin patch until October… it is just too hot still in September here.
Next, I will show you some details from the bench area of the porch.
Here sits my scarecrow, who I purchased the first year we got this house… 12 years ago! He has held up nicely (thanks to a covered porch) and I always look forward to getting him out.
This little mini chalkboard is from Hobby Lobby and I use it for so many different things! The white pumpkin here is fake… everyone needs a good fake white pumpkin 🙂
I enjoy changing up the pillows on our bench each season. I actually had these same pillows on it last fall and I’m sharing them again.
The leopard print pumpkin pillow was a Hobby Lobby find and I just love it!
On each side of our door we have urns with a monogram of our last name initial on them. I put seasonal flowers in the urns all year round. Each has a different colored mum and I also placed a little white mini pumpkin in front of the urn.
I made this door mat with spray paint (see ombre door mat DIY HERE) and it is still so vibrant and fun to pull out each fall!
Welcome Sign by the door.
Now, if only our sweet gum tree would start turning color… it is SUCH a beautiful tree with its fall foliage, but the gum balls are NOT so beautiful when they come down later. 😉
Well, that wraps up my fall porch tour. Thanks for following along! – Carrie @ Curly Crafty Mom
Isn’t Carrie’s fall porch adorable? I love all the personal touches Carrie added to her porch like those monogrammed urns and that personalized throw pillow!
The Holiday Craftacular Fall Tour and Link Up continues tomorrow as Becky, from The Dempster Logbook will be sharing with us her Farm Home Tour. Catch you back here tomorrow! XO, Tee
