This fall craft is perfect for your front porch. You can make one of two of these for either side of your door or for a Fall decoration that sits on either side of your porch steps or porch path.

Fall is a beautiful time of year when the leaves change colors and the air turns crisp. It’s the perfect time to add some festive decor to your home, especially your front porch. A Fall porch tree is a great way to welcome the season and create a cozy atmosphere for your guests. In this DIY tutorial, I will show you how to create a Fall porch tree using basic items from the Dollar tree. This budget-friendly project is easy to make and customizable to fit your personal style. So grab your glue gun and let’s get started!

For this craft you simply take the garden stake trees, also knowns as tomato trees, or cones, and decorate them with fall items.  When I created my fall tree for the porch, I used a fall leaf garland that I bought on Amazon and already had, but you could use individual plastic fall leaves too. Just glue the individual leaves to the wire frame instead fo wrapping the garland around.

If you are placing your tree against a wall you can also avoid decorating the back of the tree, not only will this save money but allow you to push the tree up against the porch wall.

Use battery lights or solar lights for a lighted version of this fall tree.

    This is a really cute idea, but (at least at my local Dollar Tree), the garden frames are sold only in the spring, so you’d have to have these on hand already to do this for the fall.
