Mums and pumpkin display

No matter where you live, you can welcome fall with harvest decor in your outdoor space, including on your balcony.

Check out these quick and easy ideas for small space harvest decor. Each idea takes 10 minutes or less to put together.


Boo decor

Say it with a b-o-o-tiful display. Use galvanized metal letters and pop them into containers to spell out a seasonal message.

Try incorporating a window box planter if you’ve got one hanging from your balcony. Just drop in colorful mums. 

If you’ve got more than 10 minutes, add a painted pot, such as this sugar skull in a Day of the Dead motif.


Harvest decor

Set up a small display of pumpkins, pine cones and mums in planters. It’s so simple and it definitely says “fall.”

Another idea would be to add ornamental cabbage for more color.


Painted pumpkins

Paint pumpkins in no time with chalky and/or craft paint and stencils.


Bench with mums

Take a window box planter, fill it with mums and then display it on a bench. Add decorative touches, too. Perhaps real leaves or garland.

Here are some additional ideas for your balcony or porch.
