My (frugal!) Fall Front Porch

Welcome to our front porch all decorated for the Fall season!  I am sad to say, this is about the only decorating for Fall that I have done this year since we have projects going on around the house (including a room addition that is nearing completion....I hope!!)  I can't wait to show it off to you guys when it's finished.  I'm calling it the 'playroom' but it will be a mulitpurpose room for the kids to play, watch movies, extra seating/elbow room for when guests are over, etc... 
Anyway, enough of that!  On to the front porch :)

I did something similar to last year with putting pumpkins in my planters.  I had high hopes of making these cute pumpkin topiaries I saw on Pinterest, but alas, it would have been a little too pricey to make them with buying all the pumpkins needed to make them.  So, instead I found these fun giant gourds for $6 and then just placed a small pie pumpkin on top.  They were cheap too, I think $4 each.  The garland is leftover from last year so I consider that 'free.'  ;)

The wreaths on the windows are from last year as well.  I just hing them right back up for this year!

So, there you have it!  Nothing spectacular, I would have loved to do so much more but this year we are putting all of our money towards projects (and baby rooms ;) 

p.s. I'm linking up to Rhoda's Fall Door Party!
