As far as seasons go, fall is one of the greatest times for decor! The warm colors are beautiful, the Earth gives us things like fallen branches, pumpkins, leaves and pine cones to decorate with, and with the kids back to school, there is a little bit more free time to craft (hopefully)! Despite the wide range of projects you can decorate your front porch with, a lot of people go straight for the wreath. Be different this year and get inspired by these 7 projects for your porch that aren’t wreaths!
