leather, lace, wood, and gold chains.
I have to admit that my front porch usually gets the decorating shaft when fall rolls around. I don’t know why but it just does. So this year I made it a point to deck out my porch with beautiful fall colors and fun textures.
Right now I’m loving the trend of mixing different textiles and colors together. I am a fan of juxtaposition-essentially creating contrast with materials that don’t necessarily at first glance go together! This was my inspiration behind all of the materials used in this project. It’s where HARD meets SOFT.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED:
– a stained wooden crate. I used Jacobean from Minwax
– a gold chain (I found a spool of it in the ribbon section at my craft store)
– faux leather stripes
– pretty lace and ribbon in fall colors
– mini chalkboard
After fastening the mini chalkboard to the gold chain, I nailed 2 nails on each side of the crate for the chain to attach to. Isn’t that SO cute? I’m in love with this crate and all of its possibilities! Think Christmas time using sparkly ornaments or pine cones!!
You can totally be creative on how you incorporate your materials. I hot glued the faux leather to the bales of hay and used double sided tape on the candlestick. I want to be able to use it again without the leather 🙂
I mixed the pretty ribbon and burlap pieces throughout the whole table.
For the table runner, I just used strips of burnt orange burlap! Easy…easy! I love the rich color the burlap brings. Using the fruit adds the perfect pops of color and texture to your table which makes it more interesting! Yes, my door is purple and I love it, especially for fall and Halloween! But come November 1st, it will be getting a little makeover 🙂
