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! 🙂
I started off with a rustic, rusty birdcage. I added mini lights for a glow and mini pumpkins.
Yes, it took 5 minutes!!
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.
