Bring down-on-the-farm appeal to a sideboard with this clever juxtaposition of a primitive crow on a spindle and a cheerful scarecrow centerpiece. A runner that boasts warm colors, a metal tray filled with Indian corn, and a piece of salvaged fencing provide an apt backdrop and add layers of texture to the scene.
A mini “farm crate” bursting with fall fodder provides a quick and easy way to bring a timely touch to a tabletop, shelf or cupboard. To give it more prominence, elevate the arrangement on a round riser or stand and place it on a woven mat surrounded by seedpods and other dried naturals.
This trio of colorful wood signs with vintage flair can be displayed together or used separately to tuck in amid smaller Halloween vignettes. To heighten their visual impact, consider arranging the three signs within a larger frame or affixing one to a large, decorated wreath for a welcoming touch at the front door or above a mantel.
Fall in Line
Have a red-letter day with wood cutouts that spell out the season. Line them up on a wood block or box wrapped in rustic ribbon for a stand-out combination, or place them on a shelf in front of a large plate or platter to highlight their charm.
Looking like something conjured by a wave of a magic wand, this lighted pumpkinshaped carriage is the perfect vehicle for showcasing gourds, foliage or a potted plant. Park it on a porch, or station it atop a table to drive the design of a larger centerpiece.
Count Your Blessings
The time of abundance often inspires thoughtful sayings, and a sign like this one, which combines corrugated metal and wood, can be used to set the tone in a front entry or as part of the background decor for a holiday buffet table, perhaps layered on a salvaged door or window.
Ring Around the Posy
Round galvanized metal tins serve as wall pockets for introducing fresh or faux blooms into your rooms. Incorporate a small sign or a whimsical figure amid the florals for a more expressive display. Because the tins feature a neutral farmhouse style, the contents can easily be altered when the season shifts.
