Autumn leaves, sticks from the yard, a waning succulent, a few sprigs from a berry bush. A vintage bedspring vase. Filled to the brim with Autumn’s Offerings.
I love bringing outdoor elements into my home for decor. It makes for a quick, easy, and cheap refresh of my home and adds seasonal decor without breaking the bank.
This month the Junk Visionaries blog group category was ‘using outdoor elements’. Just my style 🙂
Remember my vases I made with the old bed springs that I cut out of old mattresses from my Grandma’s house? If you missed it you can see them here.
I used the bedspring vase without the test tubes this time and gathered a few items from around our yard. My almost 10-year-old helped me. She found the prettiest leaves and showed me where we had bushes that still had berries on them. Can you tell she’s the one who plays outside while Mom works inside? 😀 I didn’t even realize we HAD bushes that had berries on them.
I was also prepping my home for the Fall Home Tour and convinced my hubby to cut me some cedar wood slices from the log we’ve had lying on our fence line for years. I love the look these wood pieces add!
The plant is an ornamental cabbage. I bought it the same place I bought my pumpkins that I used in my Fall Home Tour.
An antler my brother found for me while he was farming and the old seltzer bottles my sister gave me, rounded out this vignette quite nicely. I love it and every time I look at it I smile. that means it was a success 🙂
And here is an image that has each step in it – for your pinning pleasure! Pin this image and you will forever have the how-to on your pinterest board!
And now hop on over and see what my friends came up with and how they used natural elements to create some cool things!
