Mini pumpkins three ways (fall linky!)

Well HEY! I’m back to finish up our series of fall linkies – this time we’re sharing easy, inexpensive, quick fall decor ideas here at TDC!:

I’ve already shared a few of my simple fall decorating projects this year – the pumpkin wreath took less than 30 minutes because I just stuck everything in and called it done:

And even making the new wood trough for fall goodies in the family room was quick:

This time we’re going SUPER easy. And we’re using little bitty pumpkins.

Simple? Check.

Quick? Check.

Cauuute? Check. :)

These ideas are not earth-shattering, but they are not hard to incorporate into your own home. That’s the goal here. :)

I already kind of showed you this idea on the patio last week, but it’s worth showing again. Take any kind of vessel – a bowl, a basket…a pedestal even. And pile in some pumpkins (OK, gourds too):

You can add some extras like leaves or beady things too, but I’m drawn to the simple look of these as they are. And I LOVE the combo of the wood next to the pumpkins!

Simple idea No. 2 – I took a glass container and a big candle and filled in the sides with the itty bitty pumpkins:

Of course light the candle at your own discretion. I would not, just because it would stress me out a bit. ;) But it took about two minutes to throw together.

Recently I saw an idea in a magazine where they filled the vessel with water and added flowers to the top, instead of the candle inside. LOVE that idea too.

Speaking of magazines – the inspiration for this one was taken right off the cover of the latest BHG mag:

I used a former brass clock (Goodwill find) and turned it into a cloche. (I showed you how here.) I just laid some fluffy moss inside and piled a couple pumpkins on top. I love the contrast of the deep green and the orange of the pumpkins!

I loved the simple version, but had to go just a big bigger – my cheese plate dome-turned-cloche was big enough to hold even more of the cutie pumpkins:

I added some more of the moss around the edge of the cloche and l LOVE this one even more! Too cute!
