It’s time to start thinking about transitioning into fall, so today I’m sharing a simple fall candle holder vignette. In three easy steps you’ll see how to arrange natural elements for your fall entry table or tabletop display.

I hope you’re ready for our August Pinterest Challenge, because this month we are turning our attention to fall vignettes and arrangements. If this is your first time to join us for a Pinterest Challenge, this is how it works. Our host Cindy over at County Road 407, selects a photo for us to recreate, and each participant puts their own spin on the photo.
The best part is seeing how everyone interprets the image, and we always have an interesting variety. Be sure to click through all the links at the end of my post.

If you’re popping in after visiting my friend Diane of South House Designs, welcome to Thistle Key Lane. I’m so happy you’re here!
Our inspiration for this month’s PC comes from Live Laugh Rowe. Kelly shows us how to create a budget friendly vase filler inspired by Pottery Barn. I love the look of the deconstructed grapevine wreath, and the mix of mini pine cones, dried pods and faux acorns. There’s lots of good texture going on here!
Now let’s see what I’ll be using to create a fall candle holder vignette.
- glass candle holder
- pillar candle
- wood acorns
- mini dried gourds
- grapevine and twig pumpkins
- rattan tray
Fall Candle Holder Vignette
I have to admit I’m struggling a bit with fall decor right now. Shocking, I know! Mentally I’m more than ready to decorate, but our excessive heat seems to be draining my creativity. Ugh!
Let’s just say, I predict the transition from summer to fall decor will be gradual this year. It’s helping to have little projects like this one though to preoccupy my mind, that way I can at least dream of chilly fall mornings to come.
Step 1 Creating A Fall Vignette On a Tray
I’m creating my fall candle holder vignette on a rattan tray to display on the entry table. The entry way is always a good focal point for seasonal decor. It’s usually here or on top of the mantel where I kick off a new season of decorating.
Since the rattan tray is deep, I’m using one of my favorite decorating books inside as a platform for the footed glass candle holder. The book will create height for the vignette as well as providing a sturdy base for the candle holder to sit on.
Step 2 Add The Largest Items
Next I’m adding the glass candle holder with a large white pillar candle. Around the candle I have plenty of room for dried gourds and wood acorns as my vase filler. I started using dried gourds in my fall decor three or four years ago, and just can’t get enough of them.
The darker ones are mini bottle gourds and the lighter ones are called spinner gourds. The mini bottle gourds are my favorite because no two are exactly alike.
It’s too early for fresh pumpkins, so I’m using a faux white pumpkin with a real stem. This was one of my little pumpkin projects from last year. To see the tutorial click on Three Easy Faux Pumpkin Makeovers.
Step 3 Adding Texture To A Fall Vignette
Around the candle holder I’m filling the tray with twig and grapevine pumpkins. These add a lot of texture to the vignette just like the deconstructed grapevine in Kelly’s arrangement. I’m also using a few raffia braided pumpkins or maybe they’re apples I’m not sure. Either way I like their contrast in color.
A few more wood acorns around the base of the candle holder and my pretty fall vignette is complete. I just couldn’t be happier to have a starting point to inspire me for the fall season.
