Fall Vignette

A couple of years ago I won this beautiful printed burlap from The Poor Sophisticate.
She has a tutorial on her blog here, if you would like to make one.
This year I wanted to do something special to display it in my home, so I mounted it on some 
worn fence boards.


After cutting the boards to size (this photo is of a larger piece I'll show you later) I glued two boards together and clamped them using tape.
Once you have two pairs glued together, then you will glue your two pairs together.
Obviously there are better other ways to go about fastening your boards together, but I wanted to just use stuff I had on hand and make it quickly.

The glue expanded a little too much and was poking out, as you can see.


So I painted it and it blends right in and you don't even notice it.


I used some tiny nails to fasten the burlap to my boards.
I love these happy baby sunflowers. 
I picked them from the side of the road. We have tons of them around.
The little bud vase is from Ikea.


This cute little cow pillow is from the Etsy shop Scarecrow Cabin.
Look at her eyes. Doesn't she look sweet?


A sweet Fall vignette!


A week later the flowers died and so I played around with my vignette and came up with this look.


I miss the flowers. :(

  8. What a great idea to display the burlap piece that way. I love your vignette. I actually like the one with the topiary better! I'm a topiary lover anyway. You could probably keep rotating fall foliage from your yard in that vase though if you wanted to.

  14. I love your clean style - it's so very calming. I always pick flowers from ditches and empty lots, they're the best!
