3 Quick and Easy Fall Farmhouse Decorations
I’ve got sooo much stuff squirreled back from Dollar Tree, Michaels and various thrift stores it’s not funny. I was trying to straighten my craft room up and thought I just have to use some of these things. Honestly, I’m running out of storage space, but don’t tell my husband I said that! I picked out some things and put together 3 Quick and Easy Fall Farmhouse Decorations to share with you.

Look at the Mess!!
As I said, I have a pile of crap! I mean supplies.
I did eventually get this mess picked up, sorted and stored again. Before I put everything back I pulled my supplies for these crafts.
Easy Fall Farmhouse Centerpiece
I have this clear plate that has leaves imprinted around the edge making it perfect for a fall centerpiece. In addition to it, I used a hurricane shaped vase, pine cones, artificial flowers and a string of mini light from Amazon.
Begin by filling the vase with the pine cones and flowers until you have the look you want.
I first began by placing some pine cones and a couple of flowers in the bottom of the vase.
Add a second layer.
And a third layer.
Lastly a fourth layer.
Fill the top with a nice bouquet of flowers.
Place the vase in the middle of the plate. You could E6000 and hot glue at his point if you want your centerpiece to be one piece. Since I might reuse these parts someday, I didn’t attach them.
Take the string of lights and wrap them around the outside of the vase. Finish by arranging some flowers in the top of the vase. I think it turned out beautiful!
Fall Covered Pumpkin
Second farmhouse craft is easy, but messy! The orange pumpkin was given to me and the other was $1 from a dollar store. Torn pages are from a Dollar Tree book and all you need else is some Mod Podge and a paint brush.
These book pages are the part cut out of a book in my post Repurpose Old Books. My hoarding tendency paid off this time! Anyway, they need to be torn again into strips.
Begin painting a generous coat of Mod Podge on a portion of the easy fall farmhouse pumpkin. Place a strip on to of it and coat with more Mod Podge.
Over lap another strip and apply the Mod Podge. Continue covering the pumpkin with the Mod Podge and strips until totally covered. I was able to hang one to dry and the other one I just sat on top of some strips and trimmed them when it dried. For the orange one I tied a jute twine bow around the stem. I just replaced the cute, little metal leaf to the other and they are ready to be used in my fall farmhouse decor.
Fall Farmhouse Lid pumpkin
I love to can some of our food so I have collected a lot of rings that are no longer good to use for sealing the jars. Since I’ve seen people make pumpkins from them, I decided it was time I tried one!
First thing to do is paint the rings what ever color you want. I chose orange, but you can even leave them as is for your pumpkin. I used 16 lids because that is all I had.
Cut a long length of floral wire and begin stringing the lids all the same direction.
String all the lids on the wire all facing the same direction. Pull the rings together by twisting the wire as tight as you can, but leaving enough room for your stem.
Fan the rings to make a plump pumpkin. I saved a stem from last year, but a stick or cinnamon stick can be used for the stem. I simply pushed it through from the bottom.
To complete the pumpkin, I curled a wired stem around my finger, stuck it into a set of leaves and placed it next to the stem.
So there you go! I feel like I accomplished something by using up some of my on hand supplies for my 3 Quick and Easy Fall Farmhouse Decorations. I’m sure my husband would like more projects like these! What do you think? Do you have a pile of supplies? I would love to see what you make or your thoughts on mine in the comments below.
