Let’s make this in just a few easy steps!

Get out your dough bowls! I have collected several over the years, but this one works nicely on my kitchen table! If you are looking for a dough bowl, see “get the look” at the bottom of this post. There are all kinds and price points. The “real” ones may be a bit expensive but they are well worth it! They are heirlooms!

I gathered together the fall things I thought I might want in my dough bowl… pumpkins, burlap balls, pinecones (lots of pinecones), willow balls, faux deer sheds, mini Indian corn and leaves made from old book pages.

I placed one large white faux pumpkin in the left side of the dough bowl and then filled the bottom of it up with “white pine” pine cones. I like to use these specific pine cones because they are long and thin and kinda connect together to make a very nice bed almost anything placed on them. 

Just a single layer will do! This one step work like magic to make arrangements full looking! Easy-peasy, right?

Now comes the white baby boo pumpkins! The first layer that is! I just nestled them in. Can you see this centerpiece coming together already?

Next layer, a couple willow balls.

More pumpkins and pine cones.

For this layer of pine cones I use spruce, scotch, redwood or douglas pine cones. I like to turn some upside down in the arrangement so the bottom of the pine cone shows.

The final touches are the deer sheds, acorn stems and book page leaves. How easy was that?

    Love the look of the Dough Bowl. Will have to create one for my DRoom table. Also, had forgotten about wanting to make the burlap balls, thanks for the reminder. Glad your week-end was good,, know you are excited about the new blessing you are about to receive. Prayers for the best.

  2. I love the dough bowl. I especially thought the acorns color really popped with all of the lighter colored pumpkins.

  3. One of my very favorite centerpieces. Love the neutral colors. A perfect way to usher in the fall season.

  4. Good morning Yvonne! It looks like your dough bowl is the perfect size for any table. Can you tell us the approximate dimensions of the one you’re using? Thank you and have a great day!

    Deena

  5. Love the burlap balls. I can’t wait to make some for my fall scape. Everything you do is a piece of art!

  6. I have my great grandmother’s dough bowl and enjoy using it. I’m loving the neutral tones and will be decorating with them more in the new house. I like the pine cone suggestion.

  7. Tammy Durham says:

    Love the look! I want to make the burlap balls to use in mine, I like the look!

  8. Linda Schmidt says:

    You aleways use such practical things and when you use them in your vinettes they become such a statment. So nice.

  9. The idea to incorporate acorns & pinecones into fall vignettes came from reading your blog. I have now used them on both our kitchen table & on our front porch.

  10. I love the acorns on the stems…very cute!!

  11. Love the dough bowl. The centerpiece is beautiful.

  12. Have the dough bowl…now all I need are some white pumpkins to complete this look. Love it!

  13. Sandra Barnhart says:

    Love the look. I have a wooden bowl like that have so much fun changing it up for the different seasons.

  14. Karen VanLoo says:

    Oh you just gave me the inspiration I needed today! I have a dough bowl, would you believe it truly looks like wood but is resin? Everyone thinks it’s wood, but it isn’t. It looks like a Colonial dough bowl though and I use it for different things. I am going to use your idea to decorate mine for the Fall season. I love pine cones! I keep them and use them from Fall through Christmas. I’m starting my decorating tomorrow, I am actually taking a vacation day from work to begin my Fall decorating. I also collect vintage inspired Halloween items, so I have some of those I use. If it looks vintage, I love it! Nothing scary or cheesy. My favorite are the paper mache pumpkin lanterns, I have a few reproduction ones I’ve collected. I can hardly wait to start my decorating. Thank you, as always, for the inspiration I need every day.

    1. Hi Karen, Thank you for including StoneGable in your day off! You are such a faithful reader! xo

  15. Carol Davis says:

    Love how you coordinated the curve of the squash with the curve of the bowl in the colorful arrangement. You certainly have an eye for how everything blends well with not only colors but shapes. Thank you so much for all the time and effort you put into this blog.

  16. Beautiful way to display Fall! The little pumpkins are a favorite of mine this year whether real or painted. I don’t own a dough bowl but I think a big basket will work. Thanks

  17. The book page “leaves” just pop! Love it.

  18. Gotta get a dough bowl! I want a vintage one, but they are expensive! Your design though, really inspires me!
    Thanks!

    1. Yes, vintage dough bowls are an investment. But they can be passed down! They quickly become heirlooms.

  19. I’m so in L-O-V-E with your dough bowl centerpiece! Such inspiration and so beautiful~!!! I love each and every element you used in it. Have you ever used sweet gum balls from the sweet gum tree? ~~I’m not sure if they grow in your area~~ they add a lot of texture and interest also~! I’m going to have to search thru my stash as I thought at one time I had a dough bowl—hmmm….
    Love all that you do, Yvonne…I look forward to each post!

  20. I have never decorated for fall, it’s just not that common in Europe, but you have inspired me. You make this all look so easy and what’s more it’s so pretty, I wonder why we never make the effort over here, I rather admire how much you do. I decided to start gently, I don’t want to shock everyone! I bought some pumpkins and decorated our terrace table, I was so happy I shared it all on the blog today! Now I am going foraging in the fields for some dried corn, there is plenty about, it is just being harvested dry for feed at the moment. I may be rather late to the party, but I am going to have fun joining in!!!

  21. Candy marcase says:

    The dough bowls are so versatile! Love yours.

  22. Your dough bowl looks great and you have such interesting stuff in it. I still haven’t found the right one yet, but I keep on looking.

  23. I could actually do this!
    I have a dough bowl, so I will be filling it today.
    Thanks for the inspiration!!

  24. Babette Thurston says:

    Hi Yvonne,
    As always I love the way you mix textures! Those baby boo pumpkins are so sweet! I’m looking for some of those now in my stores. I’ve also been on the hunt for a dough bowl. The right one will come my way! Beautiful display!

  25. So much inspiration, love the burlap balls.

  26. Julie Maier says:

    I really love the center piece! Where did you get the faux deer sheds? Thanks!

    1. Hi Julie, I found the faux deer sheds at a local shop here in Lancaster. I have several sets of real ones, but they are too big to work in this arrangement.

  27. My sweet husband emptied my basement craft storage room into the basement living area for the furnace gentleman. Attempting to purge craft “stuff”. Many rubbermaid totes, re-labeled and re-stacked. Greenery and leaves are cumbersome. Loving your fall look, especially more neutral tones. Today’s task is to remake corn husk wreath with less colorful leaves. All you do is such a blessing.

    1. Thanks, Jane. I bet you feel wonderful now that your craft storage is organized! YOU GO GIRL!

  28. Love your dough bowl styling. Always look forward to my email with your new blog post announcement. Would love to share the giant dough bowl my friend has. We do not have blogs or sell items on the internet. I just thought you would enjoy seeing her giant dough bowl! Pictures posted on Auntie RooLoo’s Cottage on Facebook. I am not selling, buying or competing with any bloggers. We just love dough bowls!

  29. I will definitely be using your ideas for my dough bowl which is a family treasure handed down to me by a dear aunt.

  30. Anne Porter says:

    Once upon a time I brought two dough bowls home from a junking journey … now “heirlooms” as you said, they are treasures from long ago that continue to serve in many ways. Thanks for lifting them up in your inspiring ways!

  31. I love the white pumpkins and book paper leaves !! I have an heirloom dough bowl . I am definitely going to recreate this.

  32. Theresa Kleinschmidt says:

    Good morning Yvonne, you are my go to girl for inspiration. We use to raise christmas trees on our farm so we had an endless supply of cones for decorating. To this day I still like gathering things from nature to decorate my home. Thanks and have a good day.

  33. Love this look! Always inspiring!!

  34. Just right for fall. Will have to make one for my daughter in law.

  35. I saw your bowl in yesterday’s post which inspired me to collecr pinecones.

  36. Just lovely, after looking at this I will have to try and find a dough bowl for my kitchen table. I t also lends itself to other holiday decorating. Thanks for the ideas

  37. Oh to have an heirloom dough bowl. The only good thing about my daughter’s X-mother-in-law is that she had an antique dough bowl! I love the neutral and nature look. It’s so classy but yet so simple. We finally have autumn temps in St. Louis. This may inspire me to begin fall decorating.

  38. Love, love, love……this “easy” elegant centerpiece! Thanks for the very “do-able” idea!

  39. Yvonne, I enjoy the color options you use rather than the typical orange for Fall. Here in Phoenix, we don’t really have these natural elements however this project gives me a good excuse for an hour and a half trip north to collect what I need for the arrangement. I’m going to try your ‘recipe’ for bleaching pine cones this year.

  40. Rebecca Nelson says:

    A dough bowl is on my list of wonderful things to acquire and I really want to get an authentic old one. I love the look and feel of beautiful old wood. I do love your blog and very much enjoy reading and looking through every post. Thanks again.

  41. Lucia Corwin says:

    Thank you for the inspiration! I have my dough bowl halfway done. Where do get the fabulous willow balls and mix of pine cones? I’m having great fun with this project… just what I need on a fall day!

    1. Hi Lucia: in case Yvonne is too busy to answer today, I’ll just step in to say those two items are usually available at dollar stores, at least, they are in Ontario, Canada and if they’re in dollar stores here, they’re sure to be in US dollar stores! Try Hobby Lobby or Michael’s, etc. By the way, grapevine balls are great fun to make … just go out in the country, look for those climbing vines (that are everywhere), pull them off (you might want scissors) and form little balls, weaving in the ends to maintain a ball shape. At the start, you may find you need to use some wire (kitchen twist ties) to hold the vines in place but once you get weaving the vines in and out, they stay in place. I always make my own (free!!) grapevine wreaths too. Lots of fun!

      1. Deborah Gullett says:

        When finding those vines just be sure they aren’t poison ivy! Beware the hairy vines!

    2. Sorry Lucia – I meant to type the word “or” after the part where I say “try Dollar Stores”. I didn’t mean it to sound as if Hobby Lobby and Michael’s were also dollar stores. lol! If you can’t find the two items at dollar stores, try the larger hobby/craft shops.

      1. Thanks Elaine! It’s wonderful to see StoneGable readers helping each other! Just what I want!

  42. So simple, yet what an impact.
    I have been hunting for a reason my priced dough bowl for years. Going to check out the link now!!
    Have a blessed day!!

  43. I have a couple of dough bowls and I like to use pinecones in them too. I wish I could find some deer sheds, either real or good artificial.

    1. Hello Sharon – lucky you, having a couple of dough bowls!! They are just about impossible to find in my neck of the woods and if found, usually run close to $200! Re your wish for deer sheds, I’m thinking of making some and if you are up for it, visit a blog called “Craftberry Bush” – she (Lucy) shows you how to MAKE them and they look absolutely amazing!! I think I will make it my Fall project.

      1. Thanks for the tip, Elaine. I will definitely check out “Craftberry Bush” and try my hand at making some sheds. I never would have guessed that we could make our own!

  44. I love using dough bowls! I use mine all year long. I put succulents in them in the summer.

  45. Deborah D says:

    I’m so blessed to have my great aunt’s dough bowl. I can remember going to her house and making biscuits of in it. What wonderful memories. Now it will make a wonderful centerpiece with new memories. Thank you once again for a marvelous idea.

  46. I do believe I just got hooked, a step by step for the decorating challenged! Where would one get a dough bowl, hhmmm sounds like some shopping is going to happen!

  47. Dough bowls are beautiful, practical and a bit romantic, wouldn’t you say?

  48. I was just thinking the other day that I might need a dough bowl!

  49. Looking for pine cones and magnolia cones to use in my dough bowl! My mother had one, now if I can only find it in all of her treasures!!
    Love the look!!

    1. Magnolia cones would be magnificent in a dough bowl. I have a friend that has a huge tree. I’m giving her a call today!

  50. What a beautiful and simple centerpiece! Thanks for the ideas!

  51. Mary Beth says:

    Beautiful! I’m still on the lookout for a breadbowl.

  52. I have always loved dough bowls. Thanks for sharing where to order reasonably priced ones. As always, love your blog!

  53. Too Pretty for words Yvonne. I have my Great Grandmothers’ Dough Bowl and it changes with the season.
    Patricia (NC Coast)

  54. I know what I’ll be doing this weekend…love the look, but might check out the one with a little more colour though. I will be checking out your burlap ball creation! Love your posts and the variety of your topics! Keep up the great work!??

  55. I have longed for a dough bowl like yours for a very long time, does anyone happen to know where to find one. They bring back such wonderful memories for me, I can see my grandmother standing at the counter with her large dough bowl making biscuits or dough for her sweet potato cobbler. A cousin inherited the bowl and sold it within a month after my grandma passed away. I was heart broken! When I think about it I get sick to my stomach. 🙁

    1. Look in the post and see GET THE LOOK and find all the dough bowls under it. You can click on any of those and see the price if you like order it there.

  56. Teresa Alexander says:

  67. Gayle Kesinger says:

    I have a dough bowl from my mother. I am copying yours as a start. Can you buy the leaves at Michaels or Joanns? Don’t have the antlers but assume they are pretty available. Love this look. Thank you so much for the idea.

  68. My husband got a walnut log a from my sister and brother -in-law from while they were traveling in Iowa. I have already told him that I wanted him to make me a dough bowl out it. I just showed him your Fall centerpieces and he liked them. Maybe this will inspire him to do make me one after he finishes our kitchen cupboards! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!!

  69. Phyllis Piontkowski says:

    Love your site & your ideas. Like the colorful bowl best.

    You’ve got me revved up to decorate for fall and given me some good ideas, Yvonne! I’m not much for the white pumpkins, I’m more of a fall color person. Thanks! I look forward to hearing from you every day!

  75. Love it! I just love filling things like that up with fall décor. It looks so nice on my table!

  76. Tammy Rey says:

    I love the pumpkins with the pinecones. I will have to try this, this year.

  78. Karen Gamble says:

    I always appreciate your beautiful and creative ideas. New uses for old items. I love FALL!!!

  79. Yvonne Matras says:

    Hello Yvonne- I love & anticipate your postings each day. I am in Canada & wondering if a Canadian follower qualifies to be entered into to your give away prizes?
    Thanks from another Yvonne ?

    1. Yes, of course Yvonne! My brother-in-law is Canadian. How blessed we are having him in our family!

  80. Kay McDowell says:

    Hi Yvonne, You are making me love fall. You are such an inspiration! On a side note, are you advocating for Hillary Clinton? I see that over half of the ads on your blog are about her. I would be surprised if you were, but the many ads are making me wonder. I assumed the ads are not something you have control of, but I just wanted to check with you.

  81. amanda barnett says:

    Now I finally know what to do with my dough bowl! love your blog. your home is stunning.

  82. I don’t have a dough bowl but I sure think this looks pretty. I know you enjoy it !

  83. Thank you SO much Yvonne for the easy tutorial! It certainly makes a beautiful centerpiece. Now I need to dig out my dough bowl and gather my goodies. I never would have thought to turn some of the pine cones upside down in an arrangement. The bottom has so much texture and is so interesting to the eye. In nature they sure don’t all fall face up! LOL

    Keep all of the great ideas and lovely photos coming. Enjoy your Autumn!

  84. paulette hasty says:

  112. It’s lovely, Yvonne. I don’t have a dough bowl and have never come across an authentic one for sale. I use a low oval basket , not a bad substitute! I am wondering what your news is, I am hoping it is what I think it is!?

  113. Love the look of your arrangement! I don’t have a dough bowl but I do have an old wire basket that I like to arrange things in. You’ve sparked my desire to rearrange it now for fall! Do you do anything special to the pine cones you collect before you display them? I’m new to your blog — really enjoy it!

  144. Hi Yvonne, about a year ago I saw a post you did on a Benjamin Moore paint color called ‘Sonnet.’ I always kept it in the back of my mind that someday I was going to use it because it’s just a gorgeous shade. Fast forward to this week, we are ONE week in our new home in Smyrna, TN having moved from Northern California……the interior color is awful. So I remembered Sonnet and went to the paint store, bought a sample and it is PERFECT!
    I just wanted you to know how much we out here in blog land value the effort you put into sharing tips and ideas.
    Thanks so much, Colleen

  145. It looks gorgeous, Yvonne! I have always done a very simple Fall display in my long dough bowl–a few gourds, some Indian corn, some real leaves and some pinecones. I plop it on my buffet and I’m done! Dough bowls are great for making homey displays. My long one came to me from my father-in-law’s mother and I have a round one that was my grandmother’s. I usually just use my long dough bowl for Fall decor, but I’ve been seeing so many variations of Fall displays, I might do a totally different type–maybe with the little Baby Boo white pumpkins that you used–in my round bowl for another spot.

    Thanks for the lovely photos and your Fall dough bowl! I love “eye candy”!

  146. As always, love your decorating ideas. Going to look for my dough bowl and stuff to fill it in the morning.

  147. Love the mix of textures and colors.

    I love the dough bowl arrangement. I would love a dough bowl.

  152. Nice display but I love to bake and would be happy with just the dough bowl

  153. Gayle Mathues says:

    inspiring! I have an old wooden bread “basket” which was my grandmother’s. She passed away in 1963 so it is quite old (who knows how many years she had it!) So while it isn’t technically a dough bowl it would work for this type of arrangement! Once again, thanks for the inspiration!

  154. I love the white pumpkins and all the texture in the dough bowl. Makes me want to go a hunting for a dough bowl!

  155. Rita Gallagher says:

    I enjoy reading your tips as well as the recipes you share. Thank you!

  156. Love everything in the doe bowl….I don’t have one yet but I am going to. Like that there is an assortment of them on the top of your pg to click on. I surely deserve one seeing that I make sweet doe and bread doe by hand. At least that’s what Ill tell my husband for his approval. I see they can be costly but they are beautiful with a farmhouse décor. Your presentation is beautiful, will we see a bit of Christmas next in there? Lisa@ Sweet Tea N’ Salty Air

  170. Linda Chapman says:

    I love the dough bowl idea, but, don’t have one!! I do have a oak basket that was made by my uncle and given to my parents as a wedding gift. Since it is 104 years old it is a treasure to me! I always use it in the fall to put my fall arrangement in. We are just returning from a fall trip to Ohio where I picked up gourds, white pumpkins, and dried corn. Can’t wait to arrange all this in my basket. Love this time of year and loved the Amish country in Oho. Look forward to Stonegable everyday to see your new ideas!! Thanks for sharing with us!

  171. I am dusting off my dough bowl…Thank you ..Love all your ideas! Happy Fall
