I wanted to share a little fall front porch decor I've been doing around here.
It all started when I spotted this cute lil' chippy gate at a vintage gift shop here in my town. As soon as I saw her, I knew she belonged on my porch. And not just on my porch, but hanging on a large wall near my front entry.
I also came across this reclaimed wood Welcome sign (for under $10 I might add) there as well and decided I was going to marry the two somehow.
So, I nailed a picture hanging bracket to the back of the sign,
added some fall garland I already had, and hung the sign to my gate.
Pretty cute right? I thought so but I also thought it needed a little more "fall".
So, I went to Hobby Lobby and snatched up some very inexpensive chipboard letters, ribbon, and fall-colored scrapbook paper.
The first thing I did was decide which paper I wanted for each letter and trace them appropriately. Once I cut them out I decided I needed to do something with the edges of each letter.
So, using my stash of spray paint I painted the edges of each letter to somewhat match my scrapbook paper.
Because this is an outdoor project, I grabbed a bottle of outdoor-purposed Mod Podge.
And once the letters were dry, I adhered the paper to each letter.
I then hot-glued my ribbon to each, creating a sort of loop.
See where I'm goin' here?
Using little nails, I was able to hang my ribbon under my welcome sign.
I'm so excited because I am already thinking about how I can continue to use my gate for other seasons/holidays. Stay tuned for that. :)
Until then, "Welcome Fall" everybody.
