Easy Fall Planter (Outdoor Fall Décor)

Good gravy we made it to Friday! My boys have big sports plans this weekend that include an NBA exhibition game…an NFL game and a huge rival high school football game. The peanut and I are looking forward to PUPPYTIME with our Stella girl who will be coming home on Saturday:) Plus, the weather is turning cooler…whoot!!! I wanted to share this super easy fall planter….in case you wanted to make some this weekend….

I drilled some fake pumpkins this week. I probably enjoyed it a bit too much….I wanted to go buy more fake pumpkins just so that I could drill some more….anywho, these easy fall planters are my new favorite thing and they would be a perfect weekend project!

There are similar projects all over the internet…and I am sure this is not an original idea….but my thought was to try and save the plants that were still thriving (which is quite  amazing I might add…) and just add a little fallication to them. Yes…that is a word.

I bought these tall planters at a place called “At Home”…(which was formally garden ridge). I think they were $50 each….which didn’t seem too bad given how large they are. I think they will look great year round too….10623811_759801160727582_1249539671_n


Perfect for the scale of the front door and they looked so pretty with these green plants inside (cannot remember the name of them…. #brownthumb.) To add a bit of fall to the green leaves….and to match the wreath on the door….I decided I would add some fake pumpkins….Here is how I secured them to the plants….
