My Own Fall Pumpkin Patch Porch and a DIY Sign

My Own Fall Pumpkin Patch Porch

Make your porch the place where everyone wants to hang out this fall!

A few months ago, I shared the makeover of our covered back porch, then I added vintage school desk Halloween planter on the other side.

Since only our family can see it there, I decided to move it to the front yard and make it a little more creepy so neighbor kids can enjoy it too.  I’ll show you how it looks soon, but check out what I did to that part of the porch now …

I turned it into a pumpkin patch porch, complete with flowers, old stuff, a new sign, and lots of pumpkins!

I bought the old nail keg several months ago.  Perfect to put a pumpkin on!

My husband teased me for paying $30 for the wheelbarrow a few weeks ago, but that hasn’t stopped him from borrowing it. 😉  I loved that worn patina that a new one wouldn’t have.

I plopped mums in bushel baskets and put them in the wheelbarrow and on my antique repurposed flour bin table.  I love their vibrant orange color.

A black cat for the pumpkin patch porch? I’ve got that!

Here’s the view looking through the antique window hanging  from the covered porch.

I love how the antique lantern glows since my husband wired it as a hanging light.

I moved my cafe lights from the guest room to hang along our picket fence.

How to make a Fall Pumpkin Patch Stenciled Sign

Includes affiliate links.

1.  Cut a plank for your sign.  Mine is 24″ wide.

2.  Choose a base color, paint it on the plank, and let dry.  I used “spiced pumpkin” for the base color.

3.  Chose a contrasting color for the words.  I used “drop cloth” by Dixie Belle paint.

4.   Tape stencil on wood plank and use a very dry brush to paint the words.  I used the new Farm Fresh Pumpkins Stencil.

5.  Attach a twine hanger on the back of the sign.

As you can see, my wood plank wasn’t tall enough to fit the whole stencil, so I positioned just “farm fresh pumpkins” and stenciled it.

The board’s not tall enough, but I have the solution for that!

This is the perfect color!

To solve the problem of my plank that was too short, I cut a small piece from the same wood plank and added just the price part of the stencil.

    If you lived in Okla. i would hop right over and have some iced tea with you on your cute porch. I just know it would be nice to set out here in the evenings.

    • I’m so glad we fixed up our porch and removed our old pool, Marlene. My husband and I are getting a lot of use out of it I don’t know what took us so long to do it, but I’m just glad we did. I’d love it if you could come visit on my porch too!

  2. Your Fall back porch looks fantastic, Angie, especially on top of how wonderful the makeover came out. Enjoy! Cheers, Ardith

    • Thanks Ardith. Years ago, we grew our own small pumpkin patch when my kids were young. I don’t grow a garden for food now, but having a pumpkin patch on my porch makes me happy!
