Today I want to share 5 ways to create a fabulous fall vignette. So, let’s get started!
USE A BASKET, CRATE OR TRAY TO CONTAIN A VIGNETTE
This is always the first element in a vignette. For a fall vignette let’s use something warm, textural, woody or patina encrusted to put the elements of our vignette in!
I found this great meat crate a couple of years ago and Mod Podged a stylized burlap fabric in the bottom of it. This is my very favorite crate to use for a vignette! Do you have a favorite too!
Because I used a good sized pumpkin, I needed a big container… and the crate was perfect! An oversized vignette demands attention!
USE NATURAL FALL ELEMENTS
This seems pretty obvious! Try to use a couple pretty fall elements in your vignette. Pumpkins, feathers, acorns, bittersweet, leaves, deer sheds, gourds, apples, mums, wheat, pods, branches, Indian corn and nuts are just some of the natural elements you can use!
Three small white vases of bittersweet stand in a row in my vignette!
FALL INSPIRED COLORS AND NEUTRALS
Fall’s colors are absolutely gorgeous. Saturated colors of leaves, hues of pumpkins and gourds, and the neutrals of bark and acorns and fields. Use these colors! They are spectacular!
If you don’t love bright orange for fall home decor (although orange with blue is amazing!!!!!) then use a soft peachy orange or a dark burnt orange to accent your home this fall.
I was so inspired by the color of this charming Cinderella pumpkin I worked the fall decor in my living room around it! A fall vignette should be filled with fall color!
TEXTURE, TEXTURE, TEXTURE!
A fall vignette is all about texture. It’s a season of layered texture!
Burlap and fall are like best friends. It offers such pretty color and texture for fall! Find nubby, fluffy, full textured objects and add them to your vignette!
There’s a whole lot of texture in my vignette, burlap covered crate bottom, burlap books. corks and twine wrapped candleholders.
BALANCE TEXTURE WITH SOMETHING SMOOTH
Textured objects need a counterpoint in a vignette. Add a couple smooth elements, like a pumpkin! It’s skin is smooth yet interesting!
I also added glass cubes to contain the corks and the twine wrapped candlesticks are glass also.
USE SOME PERSONAL THINGS TO MAKE IT YOURS!
The best part of vignettes is that you can corral all kinds of objects and if done with care, they can be fabulous together. Make sure to add something personal or something cherished to your vignette. Use what you love and let your personality shine through!
I love the little “S” and “g” type blocks that I found at a Vintage Market. They symbolize StoneGable! Just something personal and fun and great items to tuck into this vignette.
Don’t forget to add some great candles, or mini pumpkins or galvanized metal, or a fun stack of plates. There are so many ways to make a vignette! Take out your “stuff” and get creating!
