Fall Vignette

| | | | |

Fall vignette with rusty birdcage and unique pumpkins.


I like to extend Autumn as long as humanly possible.

I may or may not have decorated a Christmas tree once with orange and black plaid.  It could have been candy corn in my martinis for New Years.  I have never gone so far as putting fall leaves on my Valentine centerpiece…except that one time.

So when asked if I wanted to sign up for the Home for Fall blog tour Powered by Hometalk, I jumped on it!

Besides, I’ll have decorating ideas for all the other holidays too! 😀

I have an entry piece that was calling for rustic fall decor.  So I answered the phone! 🙂

Rustic Birdcage with lights and mini pumpkins. Country Design Style www.countrydesignstyle.com

I started off with a rustic, rusty birdcage.  I added mini lights for a glow and mini pumpkins.


A galvanized pail spills over with burlap leaves and a sweater pumpkin.  A sweater pumpkin in 5 minutes.

Yes, it took 5 minutes!!


My rustic box is holding a glass pumpkin that was painted for our autumn mantel.


This wire basket holds another glass pumpkin and a rusty leaf.  Three guesses as to what the wire basket was in it’s previous life. 🙂

My two favorite things on the fall vignette are a small cotton twine ball pumpkin and a rusty gear that gives rise to a little white pumpkin.  The twine pumpkin was made by unwinding a few feet of twine.  Then holding a pumpkin stem on top and rewrapping the twine holding the stem in place.

Tip:  Before tossing this years pumpkins remove the stems, let dry and save for creative DIY pumpkins next year.


A couple of plastic gourds and pumpkins are painted black and gray.


A mini fall banner was made using a punch and printouts of images of fabric and burlap.  The punch would not work on fabric.  And absolutely not on burlap!!  So, I took a picture of fabric and burlap.  Then downloaded them to the computer to make a paper print.  Then punched out with a banner punch.  I use a small hole punch across the tops and then strung onto twine.


The vintage style light is simply hanging over the top edge.  I will be posting more about the light on Friday.  It’s going to be a fun prop for photos.


A rusty gear makes a backdrop like the rusty handle of the galvanized pail.  My favorite black spindle and a few small spindles gather in a little white jar add my touch.

  1. I have several things I noticed as I enjoyed your post. I love the neutrals. Who says it has to be orange! I love the eclectic variety. All of the arranged pieces look like a work of art when placed as the vignette. I love how every piece has a story. It also feels like it is a reflection of your personality…. that is a compliment!

    1. Pam, that twine pumpkin was totally a last moment idea! But it is kind of cute in a clown hat kind of way! 🙂

  2. Awesome decor – I love all the white and neutral! (perfect for going right on thru to spring – heehee!)

  3. Jeanette, I love your rustic Fall vignette with so many interesting and unique pieces! And the neutral palette is so warm and inviting. My kind of style! ;o)

    1. Lucy, thank you so much! I haven’t used orange in years. This has been an inspiring tour! I can’t wait to see them all. Hugs!
