Coming up with cheap fall decorating ideas is a snap for me. I like home style front porch decorating. Using readily available fall seasonal items eliminates the need to spend a lot of money decorating the porch and yard. I like my fall front porch area to look friendly and inviting. Fall decorating ideas like these keep it cheap and simple.
Fall comes every year. Why not stock up on cheap fall decorations at the end of the season? Diligent decorators can find cheap fall porch decorations like scarecrows, artificial pumpkins and artificial fall garlands at craft stores for up to 90% off at the end of the fall season. These items can be used every year for fall decorating.
Carve-able artificial pumpkins
It may seem wasteful to use these artificial fall decorating newcomers. On the contrary, the nice thing about these is they can be used for many years if well packed. Not only that but they last through fall and Halloween. They are quite easy to carve into jack-o-lanterns to set atop your porch steps. They also look nice all on their own surrounded by a few fall garlands.
Real Pumpkins, Squash and Gourds
These cheap fall decorations are full of possibilities. Use them alone or together to make an interesting fall display. I like to set a wheelbarrow to the side of the front porch steps and fill it with a variety of fall produce. This food won’t go to waste. Pumpkins, Squash and gourds keep quite well in the cool fall weather. These fall decorating ideas come inside to be eaten when the season is over.
It’s not necessary to purchase fancy expensive lighting for fall porch decorating. There are cheap fall decorating ideas that light up your porch and create a seasonal mood. Candles are great fall decorating items, in or out of the jack-o-lanterns. Electric votive candles in glass votive holders placed in bunches or lined up are very pretty. Skip the fancy lights and buy cheap light strands in fall orange. Wrap them with fall clearance garland and string across the porch for a cheap fall decoration idea.
Scarecrows can be purchased at fall clearance prices, but you can also make your own cheap scarecrow. Just cross three bamboo poles to make arms, legs, neck and a post to stick in the ground. Dress and stuff the scarecrow. Pop a pumpkin head on the pole. Add a hat if you wish and add to this fall decorating idea by giving the scarecrow a pitchfork, rake or welcome sign.

Peach Baskets and Crates
These make great fall decorating ideas for the porch. Just scatter them around and fill with real or artificial fall produce, such as apples, peaches, pumpkins and squash. Have a few pieces of produce tumbling out for effect. You can also buy vine cornucopias to stuff with fall goodies. Glue fall garland to the crates and baskets for a cheap fall decorating touch.
