Don’t you just love a fresh spring vignette? There’s just something special when you bring spring to your home with a fresh vignette that you created or even DIY’d!
BRING SPRING TO YOUR HOME WITH A FRESH VIGNETTE
Today, I’m so happy to be joining in on another Pinterest Challenge hosted by my sweet friend, Cindy at County Road 407!
Each month, Cindy chooses an inspirational photo from a favorite blogger. Then a group of blogging buddies (13 this month) get to create our own versions with our own twists! Thanks, Cindy, for pulling this all together for us each month!
If you are visiting by way of Barbara from French Ethereal, WELCOME! Barbara is a sweet lady that loves all things French, and she is enjoying decorating her new home.. and updating her patio!
Also, welcome TWOday to all the MWA family ! If you are a My Wee Abode subscriber, you know that today is TWOSday, and that means… well, you can subscribe if you want to know. See what I did there?
Fresh Spring Vignette
This month’s inspiration photo comes from Jane at Cottage at the Crossroads. Isn’t this outdoor creation just so fun?
Be sure to hop on over to Cottage at the Crossroads to see Jane’s whole tutorial!
Topsy Turvy with a Twist?
That might make anyone a bit queezy!
Now, with all that’s going on in the world right now, I felt that I needed to use what I already had in my home so I could #stayhome. Plus, I don’t have space on my little outdoor landing to create this gorgeous piece of ‘art’.
So, I decided to create a little kitchen vignette for my ‘twist’. And, this is what I observed from the photo to inspire my ‘creation’!
- three galvanized pails
- beautiful spring florals, and
- a topsy turvy orientation
And let’s look at the results!
Fresh Spring Vignette with Mini Mod Podge Pots
To begin creating this vignette, instead of using galvanized pails, you can use these cute mini terra cotta pots that can be easily decoupaged.
You can learn how to create these little DIY decoupaged pots! And see some additional ways to use them, as well!
Adding the Topsy Turvy
Creating the topsy turvy effect was pretty easy.
Before stuffing the pots with moss and adding the little succulent florals, simply add a spoonful of pebbles to the bottom of the pots. It keeps them from falling over!
Then you just stagger them the way you like!
They look like they are going to fall over, right? (Can’t say that they didn’t… until I did the little pebble trick. Mwa-ha-ha!)
Add Some Metal To a Fresh Spring Vignette
Now, to add a bit of the galvanized effect, a vintage pewter flower frog joined the group. Easy peasy!
I picked up this pretty little piece at Christmas time in Colorado last year. I love it! Do you know what a flower frog is? (No fair Googling it!)
Also, for the floral element, you don’t have to use colorful flowers. Moss (it comes in different colors), succulents and using tissue paper with ferns adds the floral element to this topsy turvy vignette!
Fresh Spring Vignette with Decoupaged Luminary
Do you want to bring spring to your home with a fresh vignette? Try coordinating your decoupaged pots with a tealight holder!
This pretty little tealight holder was easy to make… just follow the same directions for the mini decoupaged pots, except…
- use any clear jar (I used a spaghetti sauce jar and made a second one with a pickle jar… make sure to clean off all the residue from the sticky label)
- DON’T paint the jar… just decoupage the clean clear glass
- add embellishments like twine and shells (I went a bit coastal… surprise!)
- I would suggest only using tealights, as votives may get too hot and break the jar
And here is the jar with the tealight!
The warmth from the tealight is perfect for the spring season, and gives the decoupaged jar a sort of shimmer.
A Fresh Spring Vignette Completed
A couple of additional elements were added to bring this green and white vignette together…
This stoneware measuring cup added texture and just a bit of a different color to the vignette, along with another height variance.
The cupcake stand also added height, and elevated the ‘star’ of the vignette!
And, of course the cutting boards were the rustic backdrop that added even more interest to this fresh spring group.
And how ’bout the DIY luminary again? At dusk…
Now It’s Your Turn
Now, be sure to visit all the wonderful bloggers that are sharing their spin on the inspiration image! The links are at the bottom of this post.
Next up on the hop is my dear friend Carol from Bluesky at Home! Carol co-hosts Tuesday Turn About with me and her blog is gorgeous! Be sure to stop and see how she is using galvanized pails on her patio!
Do you see any decoupaged decor in your future? It’s one of the fastest crafts I’ve even done! And super easy, too! Let me know if you try it!
