Using Nature to Decorate Your Home

How are you doing with your fall decorating? Do you go all out? Do you completely skip fall and go straight into Halloween? Maybe you don't do seasonal decorating at all and concentrate solely on the holidays.

And if you're like me then maybe you just aren't ready to drag out all the decorations from storage yet. It seems a little early for full-on Halloween decor (although it is only about a month away!) but I do like to add a few seasonal touches to gradually work my way into it!

Today I am sharing an easy way to get some pretty seasonal vibes going in your home by decorating with Mother Nature!

Using Nature to Decorate for Fall... for Free!

I created this pretty little vignette on my coffee table by shopping my own house and using some things I borrowed from Mother Nature herself!


The branches with dried leaves were what started this whole idea. We had some windy weather a few days ago and I found two small branches of leaves lying in my backyard.

I thought they were pretty so I picked them up and the nature vignette idea was born!


I made the canning jar ring pumpkin with supplies I already had. You can see the DIY post for that here: Canning Jar Ring Pumpkin.


I shopped my house for the other items used in this vignette... Here's what I found:

1. A large vintage canning jar (a great compliment to the pumpkin right?!)
2. A vintage white serving platter
3. A wicker placemat
4. Some wooden beads from my craft supplies
5. A yummy Vanilla Toddy scented candle


The placemat was used to anchor the vignette. The white serving platter adds another layer for interest and holds the pumpkin and candle. The canning jar acts as a vase for the branches. I used some of the wooden beads and strung them onto a length of jute twine and just kind of let the string of beads fall where they may!


Some teeny tiny little pinecones act as vase filler and a few are scattered around the platter and table along with some of the leaves that fell off the branches.



Not counting the canning jar ring pumpkin this vignette took all of about 10 minutes to create and I didn't have to drag out holiday decorations from storage! That's my kind of decorating!


Do you do any decorating with nature? If not, why not step outside and see what Mother Nature has to offer for decorating your home? It's free!
