I am so excited and honored to be part of the Scoop on Creating Fall Vignettes. (A complete list of participants is located at the bottom of this post.)
I have to be honest. Until I started pursuing this blog gig purposefully I didn’t even know what a vignette was.
I just knew I wasn’t very good at them. But there’s one thing I’ve learned in this last year and a half of becoming a DIY blogger:
You can always find something to inspire you and learn from on Pinterest!
Our instructions were to provide step by step details on how to create a fall vignette and I’ll also share my tips on making do with less.
This is one of several windows my DIY hubby Tim got for free just for asking, and I plan on using them for years to come!
As I started pulling things together for this grouping I shopped my attic and the rest of the house.
Repurpose items and swap them out with other home decor.
I simply added a bit of burlap, ribbon and thread and the candles were ready for fall.
Shop at yard sales and thrift stores all year long.
The two sconces were a steal at $1 each at a yard sale. They are absolutely perfect for this arrangement and in the future I’ll merely swap out the candle for a new look.
Use natural elements. They’re free!
This oversized mason jar was another $1 yard sale purchase with pinecones, acorns and balls wrapped in yarn.
Add your own style to your existing decor.
I found these adorable little ceramic pumpkins for $1 this summer while yardsaling. Are you sensing a theme here?
The whole vignette cost $10 at most.
On to our entertainment unit in the den. I may never have a mantel but this large space provides me with ample opportunities to decorate.
Again, we have repurposing. The birdcage stays in this location but I change it up with candles or in this case a pinecone in a clay pot.
I found the metal pumpkin candle holder at a yard sale and wrapped some glitter fabric around a dollar store pumpkin to add a little bit of color.
These two flower arrangements were a steal for $3 at a yard sale.
Move things around. Since I shot the original pictures I’ve added a couple of things and rotated some of the decor around. Don’t be afraid to try a vignette and live with it for a bit to see if you like it. After all, we’re women. We’re allowed to change our minds!
