Today, I want to share with you our 5 Minute Fall Vignette. It’s the easiest fall vignette we’ve ever created and as long as you have all of the materials gathered it should take you about 5 minutes to complete.
I almost didn’t share how to create this 5 minute fall vignette because it’s pretty straightforward. But then I realized I had used a little trick to give the vignette height that I might not have shared before. One that you can easily use for your vignettes or incorporate into your centerpieces all year long.
One of our all-time favorite things to collect are vintage trophies. We’ve used them all over the house to hold everything from moss, to flowers, to wine corks. They are super versatile. Vintage trophies are really hard to find in this area though so I usually scoop them up as soon as I find one.
They’re also really easy to use in seasonal decorating and that’s what I want to share with you today. This trophy is pretty deep and would take at least 3 bags of moss, if not more, to fill.
So, I place a small tightly woven basket upside down inside the trophy like this to help add height (you can also use plastic grocery bags but you’ll need to make sure they are stable).
Next, cover the basket with moss, we used 1 bag. You may want to do this step outside because loose moss is super messy.
Carefully, press down the moss so it will stay in place.
Fill a large cloche (your cloche should be at least a half inch smaller than your trophy bowl) with a bag of your favorite pumpkins and gourds. I usually put bits of moss in the cloche too just to keep things consistent.
Then place the filled cloche onto the moss and the vintage trophy.
Add a bit more moss down around the bottom of the trophy if you like and accent with additional pumpkins.
Cloches and vintage trophy bowls can easily be filled with feathers, faux bird eggs or nests, fall leaves, tiny corn cobs, flowers, moss balls, pine cones, or acorns. This seasonal vignette doesn’t take up a lot of room which makes it perfect for the coffee table, kitchen island, mantel or dresser.
And you can’t beat 5 minute Fall Vignette, am I right?
I haven’t had a chance to share this dresser with you guys yet but I’m hoping to sometime soon. I’m in a totally quandary about it because it belonged to my Granny…you know how it is…to paint or not to paint…that is the question. I still can’t make up my mind but I’m open for suggestions if you have any!
UPDATE: After being on the fence about painting this dresser that belonged to my Granny for almost a year, I finally painted it with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint. Thankfully, it came together well and the color I chose has the perfect farmhouse feel to it! You can find out all the details of the Miss Mustard Seed Milk Painted Dresser in Marzipan here.
