I decided I wanted to use some old cedar fence boards to make the box.
Measurements I used:
3 boards @ 8" x 13" - for the sides & bottom
2 boards @ 8" x 5 3/8. - for the ends
We used a table saw to cut the boards so they were smooth cuts.
My hubby helped by using his pocket hole jig to put it together.
This is the cedar box when it was finished.
Now the fun part!
I thought it would be fun to add lace to the box to dress it up a bit, but I used double sided tape so that it wasn't permanent.
The box was fairly deep, so I put some foam and crumpled up some paper bags to make it shallower.
Next, I added some spanish moss.
Then, I put in the pitcher vase and added some fun pumpkins we grew in our garden this year!
Lastly, I added all the fun leaves to fill it in.
I love the natural rustic colors of fall!
What are you using to decorate for fall?
Thanks so much for stopping by!
