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:

  1. 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!

  10. 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!

  13. 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! :)
