Pinterest Inspired Fall Project & A Winner

2013 08 28_2273

I am sure that, like me, many of you also pin so many different projects you’d love to try on Pinterest, whether it is a craft, recipe or decorating.  I thought I’d actually go back through my different pins that made me say “I want to make that” and actually make them.  I thought I’d try a fairly easy one first and went to my “For The Home” board and picked this one.

Original Source: Seasons of Joy

I had this project in mind when I picked up this terracotta pot from an estate sale a few weeks ago.

I loved the coloring to it and the scallop on the edge.  Now I just needed a grapevine wreath and some greenery and berries.  I went to the dollar store for the wreath but they were out of them, so I took the one I got there last time, took the eggs off and used this one.

I used the greenery that was already on there and picked up a few Fall floral bunches and some styrofoam at the dollar store.  I already had the wire ribbon for the bow.

I put the foam in the pot and cut a wire hanger to hold the wreath in place in the foam.  I started to fill in with the berry bunches and florals. There are a total of 5 bunches in here, some cut apart to use singly and others left as the bunch.

This obviously isn’t an exact copy of the inspiration, but I like to put my own spin on projects and use the inspiration picture for just that ~ inspiration.  I can always go back in and take some things out to make it a little simpler looking, like the inspiration picture.

I had a few different ribbons that I could have used for this project.  You can see from the picture above that this person used a pretty brown wired ribbon.  I had brown but decided to go with this orange plaid as it seemed more Fall-ish to me.

For about $7.00 {including the cost of the pot} I got a pretty Fall decoration that I can use indoors or out.  Mine will be sitting on our table outside our front door.  This is a partially covered area so I think it will be okay if it rains, but I expect I will bring it in the house if I need to so it doesn’t get destroyed.

Ooh, I like it, Kathy. I may have to "borrow" this idea from you, but in purple, of course. :)

Fall-ish! Exactly the word I was thinking! :) I'd love to do something like that for our porch.

See? I haven't fallen off the face of the earth! :D

Love yours.

Oh Kathy your lovely creation has made my heart sing! I have long been searching for scalloped edged pots and I too would have snapped it right up. Love the fall floral. It's perfection!

Nice! I should take your cue and use a cute example from Pinterest. My floral arranging skills are sadly lacking!
