Decorating Ideas for Your Front Porch

DECORATE YOUR FRONT YARD
ON THE CHEAP!





The mailbox was decorated for about $10.00 total and has a pumpkin ($3.99) + mums (3.99) + 2 leaf rings ($1.00). 
If you look at the front porch all the way to the left, you'll see a fall banner - it's kindof hard to see, but I crocheted triangles and attached them to a long string of single stitches.  That's it - very simple.  I'll have better pictures of the banner next week.
The front porch has a mum ($3.99) + a pumpkin ($3.99) + scarecrow sitting on the chair (2.00) + corn stalks ($5.99) + 2 small pumpkins above my door ($2.00) + scarecrow on the door ($1.00).  Most everything was purchased at the dollar store.

Your Halloween decorations look great (I really like your white shutters by the way). Shows you don't have to spend any real money to make a statement.

I love the pumpkins! I also want to tell you about my "Handmade Tuesdays." Each Tuesday I feature a tutorial from a crafter (let me know if you ever want to be featured!) but then I also am having a linky at the bottom for other people to link up tutorials :) I am trying really hard to get it growing! :) I am also going to feature etsy shops :)

All your decorations are very pretty, but I really like your mailbox. Everyone where I live all do them the same way, so it's nice to see a way to decorate them differently.
