This weekend I decided to tackle our front stoop and zhush it up a bit. I don’t normally do a lot of seasonal decorating. Not because I don’t like it, but because I can never find the time for it. I also don’t have a ton of storage in my house so, having to store decor for every season and holiday is not in the cards.
We painted the trim around the door this weekend and it was so nice to see it fresh and bright! I can’t believe we waited this long to finally get around to it.
Then it was time to dress it up. I didn’t want to go all out Halloween so I just went with a Fall theme.
What is more Fall then mums? I was driving by Walmart and saw that they had a whole bunch of them! I picked up two massive ones at $18 each and smaller ones for $6 each. They also had adorable hay bales for $6 each as well!
The small mums came in adorable planters that had burlap bows. They are plastic so I won’t be keeping them around forever, but it was nice to not have to replant them.
I picked up an extra large welcome door mat at Target and it was perfect fit for my front stoop. I love the scale of it and it’s classic with a minimal scalloped border on it. It was the only time I have walked into Target and only come out with one thing! I was a lady on a mission that was set to finish up the front stoop.
I also flanked the doormat with outdoor lanterns. These are no longer available, but these are similar.
My favorite part was the wreath. I had an absolutely stunning wreath, but I wanted something a little spooky for the boys! I picked up a wooden spider at Michaels for $5 and removed the monogram and bow and added the spider!
I wanted some pumpkins as well, but the squirrels love to eat them! I put one out and it seems like minutes later it already has a big bite of it!
Easy, budget friendly and a welcomed change for fall! Check out my fun door from last year!
