Super-easy fall accent


On a visit to Pottery Barn the other day, I was thrilled to see that they're still using the aged terra cotta pots that I knocked off last fall. (Click here to read how to make these for yourself.) On one of their display tables, they featured one of those pots with a single beautiful autumn flower. So I came home and made my own. Here's how:

I stuffed my pot with grocery bags. You could use any filler you have on hand.

Over the filler I placed a layer of sheet moss.


On top of the moss I glued a single silk flower, and presto! A cute little fall accent.


Super-simple, but lots of fun. And since I had the flower in my stash, it was completely free!


Little by little, I'm getting ready to enjoy a full-fledged Autumn. How about you?

I'm joining these fun parties:

Really pretty Richella! I love that it was free too:) I still have mostly summer decor out, but in my defense it is still in the 90's here which makes it hard to get into the fall spirit!

What a cute and simple idea. Sometimes it's the simpliest decorations that make the biggest impact.

Cute! Yesterday I looked through the Ballard catalog to see what I could knock-off. Fun! : )

Cute and easy! I might be able to handle that.
I'm not really ready for fall, but I'm never ready for the change of seasons (except spring). I just can't believe the year goes so quickly!

It looks cute on your table by the lamp Richella.

Cute & simple. Great idea! I'll file that one away. I'm sort of trying to decorate for autumn but it is funny after just moving. Forget unpacking and regular decorating - can't miss the seasonal stuff! :)
