Fall Vignettes

Little by little I have started to add in some fall decorating.  I was inspired by a picture of a centerpiece by Vignette Designs from last year. 

I found this large metal tray and had all sorts of ideas for it.  While browsing through Vignette Designs previous posts I came across this picture that inspired me.
 I came across a wreath that had a combination of leaves, pine cones and sunflowers on it.  I set a wooden pedestal base in the center and laid the wreath inside.  I found the metal pumpkin at our Hallmark store and I was pretty sure this was going to be what I wanted to stage in the center of this design.
I didn't set out to copy her design 100% but the formula with the candles at the sides and the pumpkin in the middle was definitely what I wanted to utilize.
When I started to build mine I quickly found out that I had to raise the pumpkin and the candle holders higher because of the high sides on this try and the leaves and gourds were absorbing them.
 I have a combination of faux and natural elements in this arrangement.
I found the ceramic candle holders on mark down for just under $4 each
and the wooden pieces all on sale at Michaels.  Good thing is they can be re-used for other designs!

This is another vignette I set up on a long wooden top of some cabinetry that divides our dining area from the living room. 
 I already owned everything except the urn and one pumpkin.  I like to find a new ways to decorate with the same things I already own.  In fact some of these can be seen in one of my first postings a year ago.
I found a pair of the urns at Michaels marked to $9.99 and I got another 20% off last week.  I think they will come in handy for future designs!
I also added some faux leaves to the bottom of the pumpkin sitting on the urn and I added a few to the metal leaves on the faux pumpkins.
 I found a picture on the internet of a scary witch in a field. I printed it on paper and inserted it in this frame to add a little Halloween into the design.
 This is a candle votive from Pier 1 Imports last year.
They design shows off nicely with a candle lit.

I've seen a lot of great ideas out that in blog land.  
Check out some of the many ideas others have posted!  
There is some great stuff to see!
