Fall Front Door Porch Decorating with Hay Bales

My friend Chyvonne at Burlap and Rust went all out for fall on her front porch. She used pumpkins, mums, and hay bales to name a few. I love how she used a natural fiber round rug at her front door instead of the traditional doormat. Her porch has so much inspiration to start planning your farmhouse porch design.

I am not ready to leave showing off my friend Chyronnes's fall outdoor decor yet because look at how adorable she decorated her porch on the barn.

If you are looking for a traditional fall porch design then hay bales are where you should begin. I love how she topped her hay bale seating with cushions and then hung a galvanized bucket full of autumn flowers over the table.

If you are a football-loving family then take a good look at Roz's, at Stagger Roz, front porch decor. I love her classy football decorations mixed in with traditional fall decors like pumpkins, hay bales, and a tall farmhouse “fall” sign.

Here is a fall front porch that has all the traditional decor elements but includes a reminder of what Thanksgiving is all about. Adding a sign to your decor is a great way to polish your farmhouse fall decorations for your front porch.

Jennifer at Gracious Spaces included this “grateful” sign along with pumpkins, hay bales, lanterns, and mums. Isn't her porch gorgeous! She layered many pieces to add different heights which is a good design element.

Fall Porch Stoop

Whether you have a large front porch or a small stoop you can decorate for fall with many different elements. I love how Kim added more decor off the front of her porch. She is greeting guests before they even stop on her tiny porch.

And if you want the classic orange but don't want to go CRAZY with it? I love how this designer matches the pumpkins to her door (although that's not on purpose)!

This fall Instagram post is written in Norwegian, and the pictures are beautiful! To give that warm feeling when guests come over add a cozy blanket to your porch decor. Isn't this such a cute spot? Your guest may never want to come inside and instead visit on the front porch.

Check out how she upscaled that white rocker and brought it into the fall decor!

Small Fall Front Door Idea

Now let's talk about if you have a small front porch because there are so many wonderful things you can do to a small front porch for this fall season.

An easy way to add a warm and cozy feeling is by adding an outdoor rug or in my case a rug made from wood flooring. Layer rugs at your front door then add flowers like white mums, pumpkins, wheat, or any neutral colors that say autumn. I share more on how to create this small fall front porch decorating ideas on a budget.

Looking for more farmhouse style? This one takes a different approach and uses more crop items (like the corn stalks) instead of burlap and tin, and it's so beautiful! I love how it has a pumpkin patch vibe to it.

This photo also made me think about hay bales. You can add hay bales too for a farmhouse fall porch. Using natural elements from the farm during harvest season always gives you that farm feeling.

So now that I have shown you some of our favorite fall designs here is one of my own fall porch decorating ideas.

But look at these adorable porch decor ideas. Fill your outdoor space with fall mums, bales of hay, cozy blankets, lanterns, pumpkins, sleeping pup and you have the perfect farmhouse autumn decor filled with fall foliage.

Fun Fall Bicycle Wreath for Front Door

One year I decided to add a little pink to my fall decor and create a DIY fall bicycle wreath. If you look close there are tiny little white pumpkins mixed in. The best part about this wreath is that you could almost leave it up all year round.

There are so many fun ways to decorate your porch for the autumn season. This one is a great transition from summer to fall.


There you have it! Farmhouse fall porch decor ideas! Whatever your style is, there's always a great way to get out there and start decorating for fall.

Now it is your turn. Grab some white pumpkins, blankets, a wreath, porch signs, pine cones, layered mats, mums, or any of your favorite things that says fall warm and cozy.

Arrange it around your door, on your rocking chairs, swing, or if you have a small front porch like me nestle them in a corner.

Before you know it your front door will be warm and inviting. Now all you need is some warm cider on the stove and company to come to visit so they will feel that warm feeling when they arrive.

We are so glad you like it. We were just looking at your Instagram last night and noticed your porch this year. Love how you can change the chalkboard from year to year.

I would love a porch like any of these. Any tips on how to deal with bugs or wildlife eating your decor? Or do you use fake props?

Linda McDonald

Yes, the best way to keep the bug population down is to sweep off the ceiling and walls weekly. It really helps. As far as wildlife I would suggest staying away from real pumpkins or fruit. Look for artificial fruit or vegetables. Real plants should be okay with animals.
