I’ve got another “Southern Living at Home” thrifty makeover for you today!
I found a few pieces from them on my last thrift store haul.

Along with the gold bucket, or wall pocket, as someone said it was called.

I gave that one a makeover last week.

So far out of that grouping, I’ve done 3 makeovers:

Be sure to check those out if you missed them.

Today I’m sharing these lovelies.

Pretty Floral Arrangements for Fall (made out of thrift store finds)

I started out by spraying them with Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint because I thought I wanted them that color underneath.

I also thought I’d do that heavy dry brush you see there on the right and leave the feet brown.

NOPE.

So I painted it fully.

Better but wasn’t loving the brown feet.

So I used some gilder’s paste to make them gold.

Yessss.

Whew, I went through a few phases before I got to where I wanted to be with these! ;)
But that’s okay, that’s how it goes sometimes.

Before we get too far along, let me share with you the products I used.

MATERIALS LIST

 

I shoved some floral foam down into my containers. (you’ll notice I didn’t’ paint all the way down, I didn’t feel the need since I was using them with the foam and flowers.

Then I literally stuck in about 6 varying stems of color/flowers.

These sweet little floral arrangements for fall are using the same florals I used in my “floral bucket” last week.

That is it. Done.

So darn cute. And simple.
I absolutely love those little gold ball feet. So glad I went gold on those.

The way these are made, you can turn them around to show the colors you like best. 
I will share photos of them turned several ways so you can see how they look.

With the ivory flower prominent.

With the maroon front and center.

Love that they are sort of versatile like that.

I can’t decide which way I like them best.

The branches in my aqua jar are perfect for fall too.

Turned around with the ivory flower in front.

Which way would you display it?

UPDATED to add: I meant to add mini white pumpkins to these fall floral arrangements. Here are a few photos after I added them.

So you get the idea. This is the way I intended them to look for fall.

Want to make that sign?? You can!
Click here for all the details on that.

So as you can see, even though these are a “pair”, I’m not using them that way in our home.
They would, however, look really nice on my dining room table with something pretty in between them.
Maybe a big white pumpkin. Yes. 
I might just have to do that and take a shot of it and update this post.

Now run on over to your local thrift store (or stores) and see what you can find to decorate for fall with.
I would bet you 100% you can find at least one thing. (most likely many more)

Most of all, have fun and enjoy the process of creating something beautiful for your home. :)

PIN it to save it!!

I’m off to Carolina this weekend for a family reunion. Can’t wait!

  1. Nancy, these are so cute! The gold ball feet are wonderful and you know I love the white color. These really let the flowers shine.

  2. So cute and versatile. They can find a home on a table, mantle, buffet, dresser/chest, etc. Change out the flowers 🌺 for spring, summer, fall or winter.
    You could fill them with other things , also. The prospects are endless. Nice project, Nancy.

  3. They’re beautiful. I didn’t have these but I had lots of other SLAH stuff, including the 2-handled 2-toned vases of various sizes – the ones with the rough/rustic brown on the bottoms. I have 2 yellows, 2 reds, and 1 green. I sure would like to change their colors. Any chance you have some that you’ll be doing in the future?

    1. Thank you, Betty! Oh yes, those were the colors! No, I don’t have any of those but it’s easy enough to change the colors. Go for it! :) xo

  4. Hi Nancy, Are these wood? or metal? The original colors would have been great for fall but limited. You made them more “year round”! Beautiful!

    1. Hey Robyn! Yes, they are thin metal. And yes, you are so right, they really were almost fall-ready with those colors. It is nice that I’ll be able to change out the flowers as the seasons go though! :) xoxo
