Easy Fall Porch Decor

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.

Easy 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.

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!
