Easy Fall Porch Decor

front porch for fall

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share my fall porch decor this year. I love decorating for the seasons, and fall is one of my favorites. There’s something so cozy and inviting about the warm colors, the crisp air, and the festive mood.

This year, I decided to use ginger jars and real pumpkin topiary as the main elements for my porch. I think they add a touch of elegance and charm to the rustic vibe of fall.

Ginger jars are one of my favorite accessories for any season, but they look stunning in the fall. Ginger jars are ceramic or porcelain jars that have a distinctive shape and a blue-and-white pattern. They originated in China and were used to store spices, but now they are popular as decorative items.

They add a touch of elegance and color to the porch, and they contrast nicely with the natural elements. I found these blue and white ones at the late Tuesday Morning, and I think they are perfect for the fall.

SIMILAR ITEMS TO RECREATE THIS LOOK

To create the pumpkin topiary, I used real pumpkins that I bought from our nearby nursery. I stacked them on top of each other, and then I added some moss around the base of each pumpkin to make it look more festive. I love how it turned out, and it’s a great way to add height and interest to the porch.

I also added some other fall touches, like wreaths on the door, real and fake pumpkins, and some mums. I think they make the porch feel more warm and welcoming, and they create a nice ambiance at night.

HOW TO MAKE A PUMPKIN FLOWER ARRANGEMENT

HOW TO MAKE A PUMPKIN FLOWER ARRANGEMENT

EASY AND INEXPENSIVE PUMPKIN FLOWER ARRANGEMENT

pumpkin flower arrangement

Hello, fall lovers! 

Are you looking for a fun and easy way to decorate your home for the fall season? Do you love flowers and want to add some color and freshness to your space? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you’re in luck! Today, I’m going to show you how to DIY a flower pumpkin arrangement that will make your guests say wow!

A flower pumpkin arrangement is exactly what it sounds like a pumpkin topped with beautiful flowers. It’s a simple, but stunning project that you can customize to your liking. You can use any type of pumpkin, any type of flowers, and any type of accessories to create your own unique masterpiece. Here’s what you’ll need:

– A pumpkin (real or fake)
– Floral foam (wet or dry)
– Fresh or artificial flowers of your choice
– Scissors or wire cutters
– Ribbon, twine, or any other embellishments you like (optional)

Ready to get started? Let’s go!

Step 1: Choose your pumpkin

You can use a real or a fake pumpkin for this project, depending on your preference and budget. If you use a real pumpkin, make sure it’s fresh and has a flat bottom so it can stand on its own. If you use a fake pumpkin, you can find one that matches your color scheme or paint it yourself.

Step 2: Prepare your floral foam

Measure the size of the foam block and cut it to size with a serrated knife. Center the foam on top of the pumpkin press the foam into the stem and secure it closely to the pumpkin. If it’s not secure enough for you; use floral tape to secure it more. Soak the foam in water if you’re using fresh flowers, or skip this step if you’re using artificial ones.

Step 3:  Arrange the floral stems

Start by inserting some greenery picks around the base. The largest and tallest stems are in the center of the foam, creating a focal point. Then add smaller and shorter stems around the edges, filling in any gaps and creating a balanced arrangement. You can use any fall flowers you like, such as dried hydrangeas, sunflowers, mums, dahlias, roses, or carnations. You can also add some greenery, berries, pinecones, or other fall accents to add some texture and variety.

Step 4: Add embellishments

Finally, you can add some embellishments to your flower pumpkin arrangement to make it extra special. You can use ribbon, twine, lace, beads, buttons, stickers, or anything else you have on hand. You can wrap them around the pumpkin, glue them on top, or tie them in a bow. You can also add some leaves, pine cones, berries, or other natural elements to complement the flowers. Use your imagination and have fun!

And that’s it! You’ve just made a beautiful flower pumpkin arrangement that will brighten up your home for the fall season. You can display it on your porch, your mantel, your table, or anywhere else you like. You can also make more than one and give them as gifts to your friends and family. They’ll love this thoughtful and creative gesture!

I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and found it easy to follow. If you did, please share it with your friends and leave me a comment below. I’d love to see your flower pumpkin arrangements and hear your feedback. Happy crafting!

Easy Chinoiserie Painted Pumpkins

chinoiserie painted pumpkins

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share how I make my chinoiserie-painted pumpkins using white pumpkins and acrylic paint.1366922

chinoiserie pumpkin

Chinoiserie is a style of art that reflects Chinese motifs and aesthetics, and it’s one of my favorite ways to add some elegance and charm to my fall decor.

chinoiserie painted pumpkin

My main design uses connecting “m” to create a blossom that resembles a hydrangea blossom and I use the core chinoiserie colors blue and white.

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own chinoiserie painted pumpkins:

pumpkins (real or faux)
– Acrylic paint in blue, french blue, and green
– Paint brushes
– Pencil
– Clear sealer spray (optional)

The first step is to sketch out your design on the pumpkin with a pencil. You can use any chinoiserie pattern you like, but I’ll show you how I do mine. I start by drawing a diagonal line in the center of the pumpkin, then I draw “m” shapes around the top of the line, connecting them at the tips. This creates a flower shape that looks like a hydrangea blossom. Then I fill in the spaces between the “m” shapes with smaller “m” shapes, creating more petals. I repeat this process all over the pumpkin, leaving some space between the flowers.

Next, I use a lighter blue acrylic paint to fill in the flowers, leaving some white space for highlights. I also add some blue dots and swirls to fill in the background and create some contrast. You can use any shade of blue you like, but I prefer a deep cobalt blue that pops against the white pumpkin.

Finally, I use acrylic paint to add some details and highlights to the flowers. I use a thin brush to outline the petals, then I add some dots and strokes to create some texture and dimension. You can also add some white dots and swirls to the background if you want.

And that’s it! You have your own chinoiserie painted pumpkin that looks stunning on your porch, mantel, or table. You can also spray some clear sealer on it if you want to protect it from the elements. I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and have fun making your own chinoiserie pumpkins. Happy fall!

Autumn Cookie Board

Autumn Cookie Board

In the mood for a quick fall board. This cookie board is sure to please everyone in the mood for a sweet treat. This board would actually work year round by adding or removing the seasonal decor. I picked up the mini pumpkins in the produce section of our local grocery store and they really brought the board to life. The chocolate pairs well with the perfect glass of red wine. I hope this display inspires you to try your own seasonal board and any leftovers can be placed in a Ziploc bag for snacks throughout the week. Be Well-Omniley

Adding Touches of Fall into Your Existing Home Decor

Adding Touches of Fall into Your Existing Home Decor

 

 

 

 

Greetings. It’s officially Fall. I decided to start decorating early this year to give my family the opportunity to fully enjoy the season. I myself have had such an eventful year it has really helped me put into perspective how much I have taken for granted.

Fall is a favorite for both my husband and myself.  We definitely have some must-haves we do every fall. For him, it’s roasting a pig and for me, it’s my famous Coconut Curry Caramel Popcorn. We both love watching movies by the fireside. On Thanksgiving, we have made it a tradition after dinner is served to watch “Gone With the Wind”.

How do I transition from season to season with my decor you ask? It’s simply…I usually just incorporate smaller pieces of seasonal decor into my space but keeping my main canvas timeless. I love chinoiserie patterns and I am a blue and white Belle forever, so those themes/colors are always the features of my main canvas.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Decorating Tip: If you have a long table and can’t find one centerpiece the proper length; just buy multiple centerpieces and push them together. You can use the foliage to cover any gaps and also add picks for more fullness. My table is over 10 ft long so I placed together three centerpieces and added in three pumpkin picks.

Decorating Tip: I love using various textures in my decor. Here you have ceramic, velvet, and wood.

Decorating Tip: Use what you have on hand and incorporate nature. I used magnolia leaves from our yard as place cards and magnolia around the magnolia clip for a festive napkin ring.

Tip: Don’t break or damage the stem of real pumpkins and they will last longer. This are real pumpkins stacked (cinderella and two acorns)
