Start your front porch fall decor with a scanvenger hunt and make it a family event! These beautiful cheap natural ideas are the perfect way to provide your home with a rustic pumpkin patch display of the fall season!

Hello and welcome to The Old Summers Home. Today I’m sharing our front porch decor for fall with y’all! These beautiful cheap and natural ideas are not only easy to make but they are fun for the whole family.

I love to make decor and come up with new ideas but nothing compares to getting my entire family involved! Sometimes they all roll their eyes at me and think I have finally lost my mind! I decided that our front porch fall decor would be a family project! What better way to get in some family time over one of the last warm weekends in Saskatchewan!

Scavenger Hunt Nature Walk

I have to say this has been the greatest family fun idea we have had in a very long time! Our list really wasn’t much of a list at all, to be honest. We set out with a shopping bag and a pair of scissors. The only instructions were to gather anything that was red, orange, yellow or looking like it had been touched by fall!

A scavenger hunt nature walk is the perfect fall outing activity to get everyone active and involved!

My husband shocked me by getting involved and he found so many great items for us to use. The twins divided up, one to hold the bag and comment on how beautiful everything looked that we gathered. The other ran ahead to find anything orange that she could set her gaze on. Our oldest stayed with her dad to ‘ensure’ he was gathering the ‘appropriate’ items. To be perfectly honest our dear oldest daughter thought we were nuts!

We also gathered items from our neighbours and from a friend’s farm. We have a lot of trees in our yard so it was ironic to go and bring home leaves from another yard that I will have to pick up too haha. But you see we only have maple and spruce in our yard and pretty much only yellow leaves.

Pumpkin Patch for the front porch

We had the Kids do a Fall Craft creating pumpkins from wood slices, make sure you head on over to check it out!

The girls pumpkins in our fall porch display. They did an amazing job and these rustic natural pumpkins are a perfect fit for The Old Summers Home Porch Decor!

They did such a great job and made me so proud to see them work so well together despite my oldest daughter cynicism hahaha!

Creating a Crate for the Kids Pumpkin Patch Craft

Once the girls were done they went and found some mud to craft the perfect ‘Birthday Cake’, (2 baths in one day and they may still have gone to bed with mud between their toes!)

While they were busy I made a cute little crate.

A few of the girls wood slices on display in our new crate made form scraps and our new cute little pumpkin sign!

16 inches long by 10 inches wide and 6 inches high. I used scraps for the materials and it came together quickly using a drill to predrill and an impact to screw together. Not one crack in the thin scrap wood!

Check out my new drill! Josh bought it for me as a birthday present! It is a Dewalt Brushless 20v 3 speed Impact! I’m the type of girl who was so excited I sent all my friends pics and they were like ‘um ok, Jenn’ hahaha. Even my father-in-law said, “You don’t buy your wife a drill for a present!” Well, I’m not typical folks and I’m still over the moon excited!

My beautiful birthday present from my hubby! Thank you Josh and girls!

Fall Decor Mini Sign for Front Porch Pumpkin Display

I took a piece of scrap farmhouse trim and spray painted a quick stencil I made on my silhouette.

Remember when you spray paint to do a few thin coats otherwise you will get runs in the paint. You can see more about making signs with spray paint in my Grocery Sign Tutorial!

Burlap Front Porch Fall Decor

Add burlap and fall flowers from scavenger hunt to add some beautiful natural decor to your front porch!

I took some burlap and created some ‘Bows’ in a Swag to hang above the door. I added some live colourful stems to each side to add some fall vibrancy to our front porch. Because I used binder rings to create the bows I am able to slip them into the j-channel to secure them above the door. They add a subtle farmhouse charm that is easy on the eyes and does not take away from the rest of the front porch fall decor!

Rustic Window adds Farmhouse Charm to Fall Porch Decor!

An old window is the perfect way to add farmhouse harm to all your displays whether it be fall, Christmas, spring or summer. Rustic windows are timeless!

I love old windows and I love not committing to just one use for a window either. The window used in our fall porch decor is the same window I use in our Christmas Wreath Tutorial! I have yet to find a set dedication for these windows I salvaged while working with my hubby and our business. Therefore, for now I get to decorate them for every season until my heart is finally set on a plan.

Gathered Leaves and Twigs Spread About

From the scavenger hunt we collected all sorts of beautiful fall coloured items and arranged them in groups throughout our front porch fall decor display. The leaves I simply dropped from above to fall to fall into place. We tucked some red hued grass in amongst the various items too!

Family Fall Fun Wrapped Up!

Get your family together for some fall family activities everyone will love! Start with a scavenger hunt and finish off with some beautiful natural DIY decor!

We really enjoyed our weekend hunting for beautiful fall colours and using our imaginations. Involving the kids makes it even that much more fun, they have an eye for things we just don’t see. My husband enjoyed it which I must say thrills me that I got him to jump into our home decor project haha.I’m already planning how we are going to do something great for Christmas too!

Thank you so much for coming to our front porch fall decor post! I hope it inspires you to gather up your family and have some fun together to creating something beautiful and unique.

Until next time;

    This gave me some really good ideas for my front porch area. I really like the burlap garland. Everything looks nice without being made of crazy expensive materials.

    Love the idea of wooden pumpkins. I love everything fall so I am always looking for creative ideas to bring in some fall indoors. Your wooden pumpkins have given me an idea to make wooden coasters. Guess I will be making a trip to hardware store today ๐Ÿ™‚
