Fall needs to slow down a little. Why is it that January stays around like a head cold, but fall breezes by like a long weekend? So after this big event this weekend, I spent a Sunday afternoon gathering my faux blue and white pumpkins to decorate this mid-century handmade bookcase.
My mom cried happy tears when she read about her dad’s DIY bookshelf on Everyday Edits. I love this bookcase and all summer I dreamed of pumpkins in shades aof navy and white scattered along these hand-crafted shelves.
I gathered up my assortment of pumpkins in white and navy. I saved these striped pumpkins for the front porch planters.
I may need to make a few more of these too!
HOW TO CREATE A BLUE AND WHITE DISPLAY FOR FALL
- Gather up your faux pumpkins.
- Sort through the tired or dated colors of your existing pumpkin inventory.
- Refresh the worn-out pumpkins with blue and/ or white paint.
- You can use paint, fabric ModPodge, or anything with blue and white.
- Make sure to have assorted sizes or prop them up to elevate the pumpkins.
- Here is a set of white pumpkins I found on Amazon to get you started.
ADD A COMPLIMENTARY COLOR
I love blue and green so I found I way to add little pops of green throughout the year. Orange is the obvious choice- orange and blue look good together (unless you are a Denver Broncos fan). Too soon to talk about that game?
I like the green in September because our temps here in the Mile High City can be hot. I will switch out the green for orange later in the season! Keep an eye on that bookcase!
So what do you think of this handmade bookcase with navy and white pumpkins? I love the look and stay tuned for the rest of my living room. I may need to convert this closet to a decor staps and accessories closet.
