Corn Husk Garland – Using jute rope and dried corn husks, you can create a neutral seasonal garden to adorn your front porch. Read the tutorial here.

Add in Greenery – Balance the fall colors of pumpkins and gourds by pairing them with large planters filled with green plants. Be sure to choose plants that are frost resistant so they will uphold after cool nights. Read more here.

Pumpkin Topiary – Using faux pumpkins, run a dowel through them and place atop a large planter to create pumpkin topiaries. If there are windows surrounding your front door, place faux spider webs on them for a spooky vibe. To view a pumpkin topiary tutorial, click here.
