How To Create A Fall Vignette - Tutorial

How to create a vignette.   It seems this is a huge mystery to some and then others can absolutely amaze me with their talent.  I am kind of in the middle.  Not bad but not really fabulous either, just so-so.  This is a repeat of a tutorial I ran a couple years ago, but it is still so relevant and shows how easy it really is.

Most people like to start with a floral arrangement and that is good, but I wanted to show you how to use just a few different items that don't seem related at all, but when put together create a great vignette.
  This is what I wound up with.  This is really super simple and basic,  so I know you have things you can pull together too.


 This is my latest treasure, so I wanted to use it somewhere, and the kitchen was a good place.


 Since the pumpkin looked rustic to me, I gathered up a few other rustic things like the cork fruit, a couple of acorns and my favorite bundle of wheat.  Now I love my rooster cloche, so I really wanted to use it too. I grabbed a wicker place mat to use as a backdrop then I started playing.


 First I tied some wheat to the top of my cloche, this dressed it up a little.


 Then I put a brown ribbon around the wheat for a little added color contrast and to tie into the brown on my new pumpkin.


The other day I put my favorite burlap pumpkin in a clay pot, so I thought maybe this one would look good in a pot too.  I filled the bottom with a plastic bag.


 Then I grabbed a bundle of raffia that I had in my stash.  (Save this stuff, you can use it for so many things.)



Love it, gives the pumpkin more character.


 I put the cork apple and pear in my cloche.  Nice and simple.


 Ok, this is working so far.


 I placed my large and small acorn from the Dollar Tree next to the clay pot.  This also fills in a blank spot under the cloche.


 I thought maybe it needed more, so I added my other burlap pumpkin and a Dollar Tree plastic one that I spray painted bronze last year.


 Hummmmm, I think this is a little too much, something has to go.


 Maybe just the two baby boo's that I got at the market.


 Yep, I think this is all that is needed.  This is a keeper.


Just take some of your favorite things and put them all together.  There really are no rules, just what ever you like and looks good to you.  Have fun!!!

  3. Thanks for the tutorial...it's nice to see how the vignette progressed and like Coco Chanel, you removed something. I'm supposing the wheat is faux...the wheat on top of the cloche is the perfect finishing touch.

  7. Your Fall vignette is perfect! I love the myriad of textures, colors and shapes. The finishing touches like the ribbon around around the bunch of wheat and the raffia tied at the top of the cloche are such nice rustic finishes to complete the vignette.
