5 Fast & Easy Ideas to Get That Fall Feeling

Category: How-to Guides | Posted by: Jeremy Newell

Here our top 5 fast and easy ideas to get into the fall mood. 


1) Experiment

Use upholstery tacks on white pumpkins, stencil or affix house numbers, etch a monogram, try new color/plant combos, paint your pumpkins like candy corns.


2) Stack & Arrange 

Display tiny pumpkins & gourds on candleholders, place serving trays on flat pumpkins or mini hay bales, stack pumpkins in urns & planters.


3) Fill

Fill wooden barrels, baskets, metal buckets, crates, urns, even birdbaths with an assortment of colorful grasses, moss, mums, pretty pansies, plants, pumpkins & gourds.


4) Carve

Carve them up, etch in a number or word, drill tiny holes into designs, cut off the tops of gourds and pumpkins to act as vases, votive holders, planters or serving bowls.

5) Never Stop Growing

Hop on Pinterest or Houzz, follow designers, bloggers and creative people on Instagram, watch HGTV, read, get outside, get some fresh air, gather your family for a pitch in, a fancy dinner, a pumpkin carving party, trick or treating or a bonfire.
