Farmhouse Style Fall Tablescape

The dining room is such a fun place to decorate with seasonal decor. This year I have created a Farmhouse Style Fall Tablescape without breaking the budget with a couple of fun DIY projects.

Pledge® is my favorite for keeping my Farmhouse Style Tablescape clean throughout the fall season #PledgeReflectionOfYou

Decorating the dining table with a fall farmhouse centerpiece is one of the ways I like to create that warm and cozy feeling in my home.

Our dining room is open to the kitchen and living room so it’s easy to enjoy Fall decorations in our most used rooms.

Fall is my favorite time of the year and I might go a little overboard when decorating the house for Autumn. I love the cozy fall feels. I enjoyed using those fun Pumpkin soup bowls in an Autumn Tablescape in the Kitchen several years later.

Use a Farmhouse Style stencil to make over a wood crate for your Fall Farmhouse Style Tablescape

Plan the tablescape

I feel like a kid in a candy store when I open my Fall storage bins and sort through my collection. I like to set everything out and take stock then plan how to use each item.

Each year you can use the same fall decorations in different ways in other rooms in the home. I mostly only decorate for fall in the living and dining rooms. Sometimes I create a Fall coffee bar in the breakfast nook or kitchen with fall decor too.

What to use in a Farmhouse Fall tablescape

  • wooden bowls
  • metal containers
  • wooden crates
  • burlap
  • Faux or real pumpkins
  • pinecones
  • sticks of various sizes
  • fabric scraps in matching colors
  • candles

Farmhouse Style Crate Makeover

I found this little wooden crate on clearance at a craft store and knew it would be perfect farmhouse decor with a little dressing up. Take a look around your house and see what you might have that you can give a quick makeover with paint and or a stencil.

New crate I found on clearance

I love the antique finish on this little wooden crate so I decided to use a fun farmhouse stencil to add a nice touch.

How to apply a stencil

I had this fun Farmhouse stencil in my craft room and was just itching to use it. It was a fun stenciling project and the perfect addition to fall decorating in the house. This is an inexpensive DIY decor project.

How To Stencil a Wood Crate

Clean the surface prior to any paint project and that includes stenciling with paint. Let it dry before beginning.

Tape down your stencil nice and tight or use Stencil Adhesive Spray like Easy Tack. A little bit goes a long way with stencil spray. I prefer using the spray to using tape.

I like to use a sponge brush like this to apply the paint. Be gentle to stay inside the lines. You can always add a second coat. Only apply a small amount of paint to the brush. That will also help you to stay inside the lines.

Don’t be afraid to cut a stencil apart. I only used a small portion of this stencil so I cut it apart to make it work.

The farmhouse style stencil turned out really nice on the wood crate and add a nice look to our Farmhouse Style Fall Tablescape

The stenciled wooden crate was perfect for holding a batch of pumpkins as part of my Fall farmhouse centerpiece.

The best part is that this crate can be used again. It’s also handy to turn upside down, cover with fabric, and use to layer a table setting centerpiece.

Doesn't this vintage milk canister with all it's gorgeous patina add such charm to our Farmhouse Style Fall Tablescape

My youngest daughter, Tiffany has great decorating skills. She designed this fall tablescape farmhouse style. Some of the pieces she used to achieve the farmhouse look include an antique dough bowl filled with small pumpkins and a vintage metal milk can found at an antique mall.

The milk can works great for adding some limbs from the yard with a few faux fall leaves.

A little white dove sits in his nest as the leaves continue to fall from the tree limbs. This is such a sweet addition to our Farmhouse Style Fall Tablescape

One of my favorite things about this farmhouse Fall tablescape is the tree limb with a single white dove perched in its nest among a few fall color leaves but mostly bare tree.

Our Farmhouse Style Fall Tablescape is made up of lots of pumpkins, a wood crate, an antique dough bowl, a vintale metal milk can and more

My farmhouse Fall tablescape is made up of lots of fake pumpkins including ceramic the velvet pumpkins I made, and several dollar store painted pumpkins.

The centerpiece is a wooden crate with farmhouse stenciling. One end is anchored with an antique wooden dough bowl filled with pine cones and pumpkins. The other is a wire basket stuffed with burlap, pumpkins, and candles.

Painting pinecones is a fun and affordable way to create your own decor for any season.
