Fall is just around the corner, and I am ready for it! I’m done with the summer heat and ready for the cool days ahead. Just after Labor Day I start getting all of my fall decor out to bring in the season. I spent about 15 minutes putting together this farmhouse-style fall vignette that I can’t wait to decorate with this year.
It seems the farmhouse-style is all the rage these days and achieving the look really is not that difficult. You just need to keep your eye out for a few specific-type items…
Anything galvanized will add instant farmhouse charm. Also, this mint-colored pumpkin is the perfect shade for a soft farmhouse look.
Faux foam pumpkin
Galvanized planter or vase
3 bushes of mums, different colors
Fall bush with varying stems
Fall ribbon, wired
Wrap the ribbon around the galvanized planter and tie a pretty bow. I found a gold “M” sticker at my local craft store in the scrapbooking section to add to the front of the planter.
Place the fall bush directly into the planter. Trim the end if needed.
The fall bush I selected was plenty large enough to fill the entire planter without any extra stems or effort fluffing the bush. So that’s it! One part of the vignette is complete in just minutes!
Trim the stems of the mums so they are only 3-4″ long. You may choose to keep the leaves or not.
Press the ends of the stems into the top of the pumpkin. Be sure not to squeeze the mums too closely together. The blooms like to spread out. Do not press them all the way into the pumpkin, leave them sticking out a bit so it looks like flowers arranged in a vase.
Now we have an instant pumpkin vase that took no more than 10 minutes to create!
Pair the the planter and pumpkin vase together on a table and arrange small gourds around them. The soft mint pumpkin paired with the slightly weathered-looking galvanized planter add an instant farmhouse feel to the decor.
