DIY – Let’s create a Fall Vignette
Happy Autumn! Looking for some Fall Inspiration –
I love decorating for Fall. Don’t you!
Today, let’s create a Fall Vignette for your dining room table. We’ll create a new design – a focal point to make the vignette – uniquely your own.
We’ll make an autumn wreath arrangement and dress it up with a glass hurricane and an ivory candle. It’ll be the perfect focal point in the room.
Let’s get started –
Here’s my Easy step-by-step instructions for this artificial DIY fall table wreath.
Step 1 – Let’s go shopping!
Here’s the shopping list.
- 14″ grapevine wreath,
- green Christmas garland. You may find you have a few extra pieces of garland in your Christmas stash. I’m using a Christmas pine garland in this wreath.
- variety of your favorite Autumn berries, leaves and decor pieces
- dark brown vines
- pine cones and a lotus pod
- glue gun and glue sticks
- pliers or florists wire cutter
Before you head out to gather your supplies – check your supplies at home. You may have a few decor pieces that’ll work perfectly in your design.
When shopping for the supplies pick a variety of your favorite Autumn decor pieces and a 14″ grapevine wreath. You’ll find a nice selection of autumn decor pieces at Hobby Lobby, Michaels or your favorite craft store. If you need a florists wire cutter, check out AFloral, Wholesale Floral or your nearby hardware stores.
When choosing a grapevine wreath, it’s important to find one that lays flat and has a nice round shape.
Green Christmas Garland – Check your Christmas stash for a few extra pieces of garland for this gorgeous wreath arrangement.
Step 2 – Cut the Christmas Garland so you have about 15, 1.5″ pieces. Adding the garland to the wreath will give your wreath arrangement a much fuller – rustic look.
Step 3 – Insert the garland pieces between the vines in the wreath. Space the garland pieces evenly. Next, add a small amount of glue to the tips of the garland to secure the garland to the wreath.
Step 4 – Circle the wreath with the swords leaves and branches. Add green foliage and a few of your favorite fall pics.
I like the longer sword leaves and the dark brown vines. The sword leaves and Christmas pine gives the design a rustic fall look. What a gorgeous focal point for our vignette!
Your wreath arrangement is starting to take shape.
Step 5 – Continue to add your favorite autumn pics. I’ve added seasonal fall berries, harvest orange and dark brown autumn decor pics, and a few ivies to my design. Glue the pics in place.
Next, I added green leaves and autumn red blooms randomly around the design. I used 8 – 10 leaves and red blooms. Add a pine cone, and two lotus pods. You’re almost finished!
Glue the pics in place and your wreath is ready for a glass hurricane and candle. It’s so pretty!
Now it’s time to create the Vignette on your table. My vignette is a simple grouping of black lanterns with the autumn arrangement you just designed. I dressed my table with Black and White Buffalo Check, white and gold plates and a gold charger. I used woven round place mats to finish the Fall look.
I love the look of buffalo check for Fall and Christmas. It’s a fun look in the summer months too. You could dress up your table with buffalo check and a large white pitcher full of sunflowers – a fun look for the summer.
Your new design LOOKS AMAZING!
