This post will take a look at Outdoor Fall Decor Ideas.
If you are lucky enough to have a porch, even a little tiny one, I hope you’re using it to make a great first impression. Even if it’s just for your own family members!
And of course, this fall is a great time to add outside fall decor to the porch, or beside the front door, wherever there’s at least a little space to show you’re inviting the change of season.
All of the details of the fall porch pictured above, along with a fun DIY tutorial on how I refinished that vintage from door can be found HERE.

Fall Outdoor Decor – Pillows and Throws
There are so many pillows and throws that are designed for indoor/outdoor spaces. If you live in a region that has damp night air, just bring them inside for the evening, and but them back out the next morning. Here are some of my favorites.
The pillow below deserves a second look. You guys, you can peronalize this pillow! There are 30 plus dog breeds available for choosing. SO FUN!!
Outdoor Fall Decor – Wooden Signs and Ladders
Large leaning wooden signs and ladders for have been so popular as outdoor fall decor, and every season.
And Why Not?
They are so fun. If you’re super crafty, or even if you’re not, you can find a piece of wood and a stencil and make your own. I love this small wooden ladder I found antiquing with my son a Mother/Son College Day his sophomore year! Memories!!
However, for many of you who just know that DIY is not for you, look at the cute and cheap options I’ve sourced for you!
Outdoor Fall Decor – Wreaths and Plaques
I was curious as to when and where wreaths originated. So, just in case one or two of you were wondering, there was a lot to read. I will summarize what I found.
The earliest recordings were from around 150 BC when wreaths were worn around the head to signify achievement. Fast forwarding…….way forward…. now we use in the Spring and summer to mean new life and growth. Fall wreaths indicate the cycle of life, abundance and the harvest. And Christmas wreaths have additional historical meaning as well.
Most of what I read related to the circle shape and the circle of life. So, there is your reader’s digest version, if not even more condensed, of the meaning of a wreath.
Now to the prettiness of a wreath. Here’s one I made a few years ago. Yes, this was before the vintage door.

Here are some favorites I’ve sourced for those not inclined to make your own.
Fall Outdoor Decor – Yard Art & Welcome Mat
Every once in a while I step outside of my comfort zone.
Typically, I’m not a huge fan of the yard art as a design category. However, I’m trying hard to expand my decorating horizons. But, not too much. Let’s keep the yard art small and tasteful.
The choices we have for welcome mats has grown the past several years. You’ll see a lot of designers layering them, and that’s a cute look. Here are some of my favorites:
There you have it. Super cute idea for fall outdoor decor. I’m working on my fall front porch. It’s a BIG reveal this year, as we completed painting and sprucing up the outside of our home this summer. I’m so excited to share! Hopefully, all things will be ready by this time next week.
