OUR CLOCHE CHALLENGE
And this month our challenge is all about a fall cloche idea!
Our inspiration comes from Beth at Home Stories A to Z! You can see her post HERE.
So pretty, right?
MY FALL CLOCHE IDEA
And here’s how Beth inspired me…
I love white pumpkins and hydrangeas! They are a perfect fall match!
I have several cloches in the basement and chose one that I could fill with some of the white pumpkins I’ve painted over the years!
You can see how easy it is to PAINT PUMPKINS WHITE HERE.
I’m a bit addicted to white pumpkins and this easy method will transform any pumpkin into stunning white!
THE EASY WAY TO CREATE A VIGNETTE
To make this vignette I called on one of my favorite interior design tips, the rule of three!
You can learn about THE RULE OF THREE HERE. It will help you be a better decorator!
This light and airy fall cloche idea groups things in threes. If you learn how to use this one designer trick you can almost guarantee a fabulous outcome in your decor
HOW TO THINK IN THREE’S
Breaking down any kind of vignette or arrangement into a grouping of three will really help you!
Here are a couple ways I broke down the fall vignette into threes…
- three groupings: the cloche with the pumpkins
- the white cache pot with the hydrangeas on the breadboards
- and the two white pumpkins
And here’s another group of three…
And yet another is according to color (I use this so often)
TIPS FOR FILLING A CLOCHE
There are a few tricks and tips for filling a cloche with pumpkins…
- use faux pumpkins- the real ones give off too much moisture and will make the inside of the cloches sweaty
- use assorted sized of small pumpkins or other fall elements to help fill in the gaps
- overfill the cloche just slightly with pumpkins so when they settle the cloche will be totally full!
- start adding a layer of pumpkins next to the glass first and fill in the middle, then keep repeating.
Using the rule of threes creates a curated look!
To make this fall vignette I started with my biggest cloche and filled it with pumpkins. There is a bit of a trick to filling a cloche and the tips above will help you a lot!
Bobby helped me hold the cloche so I could take this picture. Thanks, honey!
Little white pumpkins looks so pretty in a cloche on a cake stand pedestal, don’t you think! And it was so so easy!
CREATING THE SECOND PART OF THE VIGNETTE
Once the cloche was filled with pumpkins, I worked on the second part of my fall cloche idea… a big pot of drying hydrangeas. Oh, I love hydrangeas!
The hydrangeas came from our front garden. They are just about ready to dry so I brought them in and used my favorite method to finish the drying process.
To learn HOW TO DRY HYDRANGEAS BEAUTIFULLY GO HERE. I’ve had lots of success with this method.
I wanted to add a bit of height and a little wood tone warmth to the white cache container of hydrangeas so I stacked two medium-size European breadboards under the hydrangeas.
I think they work with the base of the cloche too!
And the cutting boards had enough room for a white pumpkin that was part of the third grouping that made up this fall cloche vignette.
WORKING ON THE THIRD PART OF THE VIGNETTE
The last grouping of three were the white pumpkins outside the cloche.
I think this little white pumpkin is just so adorable! Because it has such a fun faux stem I used it as a stand-alone pumpkin!
DON’T FORGET THE DETAILS
The last thing I did to add a bit of “pretty” to this fall cloche vignette was to embellish it with a few clipped hydrangeas. When they take on a saturated look I think their florets are little works of art!
Use the same step I did to make my fall cloche vignette and put your own special spin on it to use in your home this fall!
