Outdoor Fall Arrangement

Try this arrangement for your front porch this fall.

I am not a florist, but even I found this to be easy, inexpensive, and rewarding.

Most supplies were growing in my own backyard: Cedar branches, two kinds of tall grass tops, and Sedum.

I found cattails in a nearby ditch and purchased the pumpkin at the store.


 Cut the top off the pumpkin and fill it with a few scoops of dirt.

I stuck one cedar branch in the middle and filled the edges with the rest trying my best to balance the overall look.

I added the tall grass to fill in the holes.

Added the cattails

I added the Sedum resulting in an arrangement I love!

The next day I repeated the steps to make this larger version for my step. The first one was a gift.

Another fall tip – Instead of carving pumpkins glue on felt features. No mess – very cute!

    I heard a few comments on Saturday, wishing they had received one! Great idea, that I may attempt! And love the felt idea, too! No mess!
