I’ve had this terracotta pot sitting on a shelf in our garage all Summer. I painted it a couple of years ago and added the fleur de lis stencil. I never used it this year and I was thinking it was time to repaint it.
I had some paint left in two sample pots of Coco and Old Ochre chalk paint so I decided to use those. I just kept it simple and neutral, because I would like to be able to use it for Spring, Summer and Fall in different ways. I painted it with the Coco and then dry brushed the Old Ochre over that.
For Fall, I found this project when I was looking through my Halloween/Fall board on Pinterest. This is my inspiration for this project.

I pretty much have everything I need to put it together ~ the pot, a glass hurricane, and some Fall florals. I’m using one of my monogrammed faux candles for pictures. I used a small glass votive holder to raise up my faux candle to the proper height.
The florals are from an old floral arrangement that I took apart a few years ago when the container it was in broke. I used them last year in a wooden tote on my living room coffee table.
I will have to buy one thing ~ a candle. I think a pumpkin colored/scented pillar candle would finish this off nicely.
And now I have a lovely Fall centerpiece! I may add some faux leaves to this, too. I have some extras floating around in my Fall bin.
This could be used outside or in. I’ll be using mine on our dining table.
For now, though, I will use this boxwood ball in the pot. This makes for a really quick decorative piece and will work great for the end of Summer transition into Fall decorating.
