Well, most of you know that my all-time favorite natural element is the hydrangea. At last count we had over 20 hydrangea bushes of various shapes and colors to choose from in our yard! So the light bulb went off: hydrangeas! I've displayed them in so many ways over the years, I knew that I needed a fresh new idea for this challenge. And I came up with an idea that I think works well and I'm pretty pleased with.
I started out with an old, chippy, white shutter that I picked up as part of a pair at a flea market a few years back. At the time my thought was to use them for jewelry display. I did end up using one for that purpose. But this one had basically been sitting in the garage so I knew it was time to put it to good use.
At first I only used a few blooms, and some of my Baby Boo pumpkins. (Don't worry, it gets WAY better!)
It looked okay, but nothing special.
Here I added a ceramic black and white candle holder with a white pumpkin
inside of it. Still okay, but nothing special.
I think that using my old shutter as a floral display piece was a pretty good idea if I do say so myself!
I really love the contrasting colors of the different varieties.
It's a subdued fall display that I believe will really work well
into the Thanksgiving season. I swear I smile to myself every
time I walk past it!
I hope you liked my shutter repurpose with natural elements and that I've motivated you to go out and create a fall vignette of your own. I think any kind of shutter and flower type combination will do. Sunflowers would probably be awesome!
