It's finally autumn, and we're pumped. Not only does our favorite season mean cozy hayrides and all pumpkin everything (PSL, here we come!), but it also means it's time to swap out those warm weather decorations in order to make way for some new autumn home decor—specifically, it's time to start thinking about fall porch decor! That's where our list of the best fall porch decorating ideas comes in. There's no shortage of ways to dress up your interior for the occasion, and we all know that by now...but to really make a statement, you've got to impress friends and family before they even walk in the door with outdoor fall decor. Wreaths, gourds, garlands, and more will instantly add curb appeal to your home and help to get your guests in the seasonal spirit. And even if you're not into those classic autumn oranges and browns, never fear: There's truly something for every porch color palette. Neutral-colored mini pumpkin patch to contrast a bright front door? Coming right up! Corn stalks to complement a lighter setup? You got it!

Space won't be an issue for these fall porch decorations either. If you're a little cramped, just opt for a DIY crate display or basic burlap banner. Small, simple touches like a blanket-covered rocking chair or a chalkboard sign will easily suffice. If you've got a more spacious wraparound, however, why not go all-out with plaid couch pillows and bales of hay? Ultimately, no matter what you're going for, there's a look here that's sure to fit your style.

Decorate with Corn Husks

Add some serious seasonal curb appeal with these easy autumn DIY projects.

For the garland: Cut a piece of ½-inch jute rope to your desired length (add a few extra inches to get the drapey effect at the top) and attach corn husks and silks with a hot-glue gun. (You can also use tamale wrappers.)

For the wreath: Start with a flat-wire 18-inch frame. Hot-glue corn husks (roughly 18) and corncobs (roughly 9) in an alternating pattern. Fray the ends of the corn husks to add dimension.

If you have a wooden ladder: Display a cozy blanket on each rung.

If you have a grapevine wreath: Dress it (or a pair) up by nesting nuts and apples in the lower half, then hang with 3-inch-wide burlap ribbon.

If you have a bushel basket: Repurpose it as a rustic planter, or use it to corral outdoor items.
