DIY Dough Bowl Table Decoration

Once used by our grandmothers to mix and knead bread dough, now dough bowls serve a much wider, and predominantly aesthetic purpose. You can easily find them in different sizes and price ranges, which makes them incredibly accessible and versatile. Because they’re made of wood, you can easily paint them and give them a unique personalized appearance that fits your home aesthetic better. You can use it to create a seasonal table centerpiece by adding some faux leaves and mini pumpkins painted in rich earthy colors.

All you need is a metal bucket filled with water, a couple of real apples, and tealight candles.

Farmhouse Mantel Decor

If you have a mantel in your home, you will probably agree with me that it’s one of the most enjoyable areas to decorate. Because the fireplace is the heart of the house that’s usually situated in the living room, it instantly becomes a focal point that will organically attract attention to anything you wish to display above it. To give it a seasonal makeover in a farmhouse style add a few wicker demijohn bottles in different sizes and use them as vases for wheat or dried flowers. Place around a couple of micro pumpkins arranged at different heights, some feathers, and one or two old books for an effortless and lived-in appearance.
