Fall is right around the corner! We have a beautiful front porch layout that will be the envy of your street and keep your home festive through the season!

You’ll Need: 

  • Orange Wrapping Paper
  • Gold Glitter Paper
  • Pumpkins

  • Glitter
  • Leaf Branches (around the height of your door)

  • Cabbage Plants

1. Trim orange wrapping paper to the height of the door; secure with masking tape.

2. Overlap another sheet to cover the rest of the door; tape down.

3. Lay gold glitter paper facedown and use a ruler to draw an eye (a triangle with 12″ sides), nose (a triangle with 10″ sides) and lopsided smile.

4. Cut out, arrange and tape to the door as shown.

5. Cut a small hole in the top of each large pumpkin with a craft knife.

6. Insert the leaf branches; push down until secure.
