Wooden Fall Flower Pots

Fall is in full swing around these parts and I have been busy working on my porch and fixing it up for the autumn weather! Today I am sharing a fun little fall project with you that is just perfect for sprucing up those fall porches – wooden fall flower pots – and just perfect for adding in color!

Rustic Wooden Fall Flower Pots (19)a

All you need for this project is a 1x6x6 and a 1x4x6 – unless you want to make a few (like I did) and then you need a little more!

CUT LIST:

(4) 1×6 @ 5 1/2”
(1) 1×6 @ 7”
(2) 1×4 @ 5 1/2”
(2) 1×4 @ 8 1/4”

Use your miter box and cut your 1×6 into square pieces. A 1×6 is actually 3/4 x 5 1/2 so cut four (4) 5 1/2 pieces.

Glue and nail your pieces into a square.

I stained the bottom of my box cherry and painted my border pieces using DecoArt Chalk Paint in Relic. When everything is dry, glue and pin your border pieces onto the box. I attached my 1” from the top.

Drill holes in the bottom so the water will drain. Also, I took a sponge sander to mine and roughed it up a bit – just to make it look a little more rustic!

Fill it with your favorite fall flowers and you are done!! I found my mums at Walmart for $5!

I love how simple the boxes are but how much personality it add to my porch. You could paint them any fall color or stain them any color too! I think a gray stain, orange paint and yellow/red mums would be darling too!

Soft and Yummy Caramel Corn

For some reason, caramel corn reminds me of the fall and since we are celebrating September arriving… I whipped some up! I posted it to Instagram and a few people asked for the recipe so here it is – Soft and Yummy Caramel Corn!

Soft and Yummy Caramel Corn Recipe

Pop 1 cup of popcorn – makes about 6 cups popped. Pour into brown paper bag. (when you hit up the grocery store – ask for paper instead of plastic!)

In a large sauce pan mix:

1 cube butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Kayro Syrup

Bring to Boil

add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

The caramel will foam. Pour onto the popcorn in the brown paper bag.
Microwave for 1 1/2 minutes – Shake and repeat!

Pour into large bowl or onto cookie sheet and enjoy!

Note: I like to double the caramel recipe and add about 3 extra cups of popped popcorn. It makes it softer and more chewy.

Scrap Wood Pumpkin

 Since we are going into cooler fall weather, I wanted to share a fun and simple Fall project that anyone can make with wood from your scrap pile – A scrap wood pumpkin! 

Scrapwood Pumpkins (12) copy

All you need for this project is a couple pieces of 2×4 wood and 2×6 wood! I found both in my scrap pile – but feel free to swing by Home Depot and grab a one of each a make a few of these for your home! Cut your pieces down – I cut two 2×4’s at 6 inches and two 2×6’s at 7.5 inches. I just did what I thought looked best – but make some bigger and smaller if you want too!

I used Rustoleum Cinnamon and sprayed the wood down.

When they were dry, I used my cornercat and sanded the edges a bit.

Lastly – and the thing that makes the pumpkin – I tied the whole thing up with green ric rac! I love it! I makes it look wavy – sort of like a real pumpkin!

I tied the top in a bow to look like “leaves.”
