I love decorating…especially for autumn. Bringing all of the warm colors, textures, and scents together to create a beautiful space is something I enjoy. However, I am very budget-conscience.
How do you assemble small groupings to create a beautiful focal point, within a budget?
Here are four simple steps to help you create eye-catching vignettes economically.
- Begin with an item to add height. Here I used a tall candlestick that I found in Goodwill for just $2. After receiving a coat of Chalk Paint and some distressing, it was ready for a candle that I found on clearance at Kohl’s.
- Incorporate a natural element. Use what you have in your garden. This bittersweet was given to me by a friend, from her garden. It sits in a simple mason jar.
- Add a pop of color. I picked up this bright orange baby pumpkin at our local farm for 50 cents. This seasonal fruit sits on a pedestal dish that was given to me by my mother. The dish also adds some variation in height to the grouping.
- Incorporate something personal or unique. Shop your home and use what you have. I like to use framed pictures or prints to make the space more personal. This framed print that was a gift from my husband when we were first married, almost twenty years ago.
This vignette sits in front of my DIY shutter project from this summer. I love the texture that these add to the wall for a minimal cost.
Here is a Halloween vignette that I recently put together in my kitchen. It has the varied heights, a natural element, color, and something unique…the ghost!
I hope this gave you a little inspiration to create some fun seasonal vignettes in your home!
