There are many ways to decorate your home for autumn. Since a home’s fence is often the first thing visitors see, it is the perfect canvas for decorative expression. From cedar fence materials to stone walls, every fence can be outfitted to announce the fall harvest and holidays.
Here are a few ways to decorate your fence for fall:
Fence post toppers. No passerby will be able to avoid smiling at a line of cheerful mini-pumpkins along your fence posts.
Plant holder adornment. Cedar fence materials are wonderful places to hang plant holders. During the summer, plant holders can add a cascade of blossoms to your fence materials. Portland gardeners must bring plants indoors as the threat of frost approaches. Instead of leaving your plant holders barren for the fall months, why not place mini pumpkins and decorative gourds where the plant containers would be?
Halloween fence decorations. Of all holidays, your fence is probably the most visible at Halloween. Decorate your cedar fence materials in a way that will delight trick-or-treaters. Place a pointy witch’s hat on your corner post. Drape orange lights along the top of the fence materials. Portland’s party stores have plenty of deliciously scary decorations in case you don’t have enough in your stash. Add cobwebs and fake spiders around the edges of the fence. Heck, if you want to go all out, you could even paint your fence with glow-in-the-dark paint!
When it comes to their fence materials, Portland residents are as creative and quirky as the characters in the eponymous “Portlandia” series. Get crafty, Portland homeowners – follow the tips above to help your fence reflect the beauty of the autumn season.
