This post should probably have been titled, "How to Distract you from Construction Mud & Plywood Walkways". Since we did our basement waterproofing, we have been living in a muddy state on the outside of our house. Our front walkway was ripped out and we have a plywood plank leading to the front step. It looks so nice. ;). I did want to add some fall decor to our front porch though and it helps distract you from the ugliness outside, kinda sorta . As per usual, my decor is pretty minimal, but does let you know it's fall. I added some mums, pumpkins (for the boys' photos), birch branches and leaves in a wire basket as well as a DIY wreath.
I made this wreath from book pages and I think it's my favourite part. I will be sharing the how to next week. (**update: you can find the tutorial here).
The birch branches were placed in a wire basket from Target and then wrapped together with a little twine. I added some of the leaves that are all over our yard for some nice fall colour.
Little Pilot is already practicing for his pumpkin photo. :)
Did I succeed in distracting you from all the construction mess? Do you like to decorate for fall? I'm happy that our front door looks a little more inviting for Thanksgiving and for my boy's shared birthday party.
