As much as I like the idea of decorating for each season, I often find myself just too tired and weary to do much when it involves getting into the attic and bringing down the tubs of decor and worse yet…. getting the tubs put back away! So when I can, I go for the easy and mostly free decor. Easy and free is a combo that I really like. You can do this by using what you already have, even if you used it last year and the year before! And yet, you can update your past front porch fall decor quite easily so that it feels fresh and new.

Two years ago:
Using only things that I already had on hand and armed with an inspiration picture, I was able to find a quick and easy, but yet gorgeous fall look for the front porch. The idea is to create your own version of the inspiration picture by using similar items, not exact. See the inspiration picture and my full front porch decor HERE.
One year ago:
While blue is not the usual or standard color for fall, when I found some in the fall decor aisle I had to have some for my front porch. See the full blue fall front porch decor HERE.
Update Past Fall Decor:
When I started thinking about decorating my front porch this fall, I came up with a totally new look by combining the past two years decor into one. Blue and yellow are my two favorite colors and I use them inside almost exclusively, so it makes total sense to carry the color scheme outside.
Reusing the background pieces from both years set the stage. Free yellow flowers (goldenrod) that I cut from the side of the road was a repeat from two years ago, and then I added the same blue flowers from last year in with them.
To update and make it fresh, I brought out a straw hat to place on the bench and hung two small wreathes on each side of the front door.
And as easy as that, the front porch fall decor was DONE! Reuse what you have by thinking of it in new ways. No need to spend a lot of money.
I really like how the yellow makes such a bright spot on the porch.
These framework pieces stay on my front porch year round so that makes it even quicker to decorate by updating past front porch fall decor. All you have to do is add the appropriate color for the season. Quick, easy and cheap. That’s the way I roll. How about you?
