Adding Fall Color!

Adding Fall Color!

adding fall color

After finishing up the Fall touches on the front porch, I decided my urns and “orbs” needed a little something, something….


Y’all know how I love my Orbs!!!  Last year, they were a different color….


I decided to change them from black to cream and I have really enjoyed the change but when I set the white pumpkins in the cream orbs, they kinda disappeared.  So, I had to come up with a new idea!

I needed a little color!!!


I purchased 2 large candle ring wreaths and 4 small candle ring wreaths that were 40% off at Hobby Lobby.


I cut them in half……


I simply placed the two halves of the larger wreaths into the orbs


…..and placed my faux greenery orbs back in!


I did the same thing with the small halves by placing them in the smaller urns and placing those greenery orbs on top!


It was just the right amount of color and I love the green and orange together.  I think it’s a great way to transition from summer to fall since our temperatures are still topping 90 degrees!


Sometimes I tend to over think decorating.  This was so simple and inexpensive.  I spent a total of $20 and I think it created a major impact!

The “Summer to Fall” Porch is just about complete!  Now, if only our temperatures could fall too!

Until next time……….
