Large columns and a dentil-molding pediment frame a grand entry to this home. A beadboard-style wood door adds a touch of vintage style, while the ornate door handle provides much elegance. A traditional evergreen and pinecone wreath is the perfect final touch.
A North Carolina front porch features a vintage lantern with a bow, a pinecone garland over the door and an evergreen wreath with a fancy ticking bow (that matches the lantern bow). The faux trees in urns are decorated with handmade painted birch bark ornaments and frosted shatterproof balls. It's decorated by craft and home decor blogger Amy Buchanan of AttaGirlSays.
Plaid and gingham and polka dots, oh my! Aniko Levai of Place of My Taste cleverly mixed fabric scraps and inexpensive wrapping paper to create this fun and festive table decor. Leftover fabric covers the tablescape’s conical “trees,” dots the pinecone-and-greenery centerpiece, ties cardboard reindeers around vintage glass bottles and finishes off the place settings.
Home decor blogger Amy Buchanan started with a yard sale table and layered in finds, such as a tobacco stick star, a pinecone garland and a frame from an old dresser. Ticking ribbon and wooden Christmas trees painted to look like old grain sacks are in keeping with the farmhouse theme. "I love collecting vintage items throughout the year, then mixing them together to create rustic and farm-style vignettes," says Buchanan, who blogs at AttaGirlSays.
Bring a little nature indoors this winter with a handmade felt pine cone throw pillow. Use a round, stuffed object for your base. If you can’t find a round pillow look for a stuffed toy ball. Cut ovals out of brown felt and stitch or use fabric glue to attach them in overlapping layers. Use larger ovals at the base, and smaller ovals as you get to the top of the pinecone.
Create your own giant acorns for extra large fall decorations this season. To create the body of your acorn you will need to find some wooden eggs shapes, or create your own with balloons and paper mache. Once you have the body you can decorate it by painting it, wrapping it with twine, or gilding it with gold leaf or glitter. Create your acorn cap by hot gluing natural elements around the top half of your acorn shape. We used acorn caps and layers of pinecone scales to create ours.
