Fall fun on Pinterest

Hello!

There’s finally a nip in the air (edit: a short-lived one as it’s going to be back in the 80s this weekend!) and we’re getting excited for the first official day of fall (even though we broke out the decorative gourds on August 31).

Pinterest, as you know, is a great place to get inspiration for fall and harvest themes, and today we’re sharing five fun ways you can easily incorporate the season into your existing decor. Check out our Pinterest Fall/Thanksgiving board for more great ideas!

Fill your candle glass, lanterns and bowl fillers with autumny things like wheat, corn kernels, hazel nuts, acorns, berries…even candy corn!

Fill your mason jars with arrangements of fall leaves (real or fake!) and wrap them with burlap or red and gold ribbons.

Use that vintage scale to display nuts, berries, corn or fall floral arrangements.

Use your bottle box or utensil holder to arrange fall flowers like golden rods and chrysanthemums.

And of course, rusty buckets, watering cans and planters are great for showing off those gourds and fall flower arrangements.

We have so many bucketsMilk cans, too.

Use florals to liven up your candles, walls, tabletops and more. Pinterest has some really cool floral displays on ladders, pallets and window shutters!

Bonus tip: white pumpkins continue to be a popular decorative element this fall! And throwing in a splash of turquoise adds a lovely contrast to the warm autumn shades.

And we now have burlap ribbon spools and burlap letters for even more DIY fun!

Farmhouse ‘Pinspiration’

Good day!

We’re back today with some Pinspiration! We’re taking some of our favorite storage baskets and buckets, and exploring how the Pinterest crowd uses them in their own country home decor.

Let’s do it!

Wood planter basket set

These planter boxes love more than just plants! Candles, flower vases, Ball jars, and even wine bottles are just a few of the items Pinterest users have placed in them.

Olive bucket set – This Pinterest user is using their olive bucket as a toilet paper storage container. We also love them as garden planters for lavender or willow branches, and decorative gourds for holiday harvest fun. Throw in some tiny LED lights!

Mason Jars in Chicken Wire Basket

We see a lot of these in the kitchen holding various utensils, but they’re also great for holding herbs and flowers!

Small Pocket Basket

The most common uses we’ve seen for this style of basket is in a den, home office or kitchen for books, magazines, and mail. We also saw a great post where a similar metal wall basket was used to store bathroom towels.

Iron Open Weave Basket

We’re seeing these baskets used to store produce, eggs and garlic in the kitchen! There’s even a great tutorial on Pinterest for attaching them to a wooden base for a multi-use organizer.

Aqua Tin Letter Box

A darling use for the tin letter box: fill with flowers and hang it on your front door!

What farmhouse storage baskets and buckets do you have at home, and what do you keep inside of them?

We just love this rustic heart decor on Pinterest
