I am trying to improve my attitude about Fall. It just is my least favorite season..but you know, if you can't beat 'em join 'em. So I don't see Fall going away anytime soon so I am trying to embrace it.
My first attempt in decorating for Fall is that I made some burlap sunflowers.
I had seen these on pinterest and I really think they are just what I needed to keep with my white and neutral Fall theme.
I think they work perfectly.
So just in case you want to make some yourself here is what I did.
I bought a small bunch of sunflowers from Dollar Tree! There were 5 on the bunch for $1.
I cut them apart, and then took them apart.
I pinned the flowers to a piece of burlap and cut them out.
I put them back together...and ta-da!
I stuffed my table box full of kraft paper filling (also from Dollar tree) and wee little white pumpkins that I finally found after looking at literally every grocery store in our area. Love these wee little pumpkins--but this year for some reason they were so hard to find! Next year I am going to ask my husband to grow me some.
I am pleased with how it turned out.
Maybe I can learn to like Fall decorating.
I picked what I think is my very last fresh cut flower of 2013.
I will so miss fresh flowers in the house!
I hope this finds everyone enjoying all the season has to offer.
Thanks for visiting!
Hi Sandy ;) I dont like fall either! Or winter. I need greenery and flowers! But I love your dislplay. What an awesome idea for sunflowers! Who doesnt love burlap? And I really love how inexpensive it is. I havent found any small white pumpkins yet either. I sure hope I do. I never did find any last year :( Its kind of fun to find ways to decorate for seasons we dont like. It's a challenge :) And you definitely won!
It turned out so cute. I need to get some little pumpkins they are adorable. I also want to make those sunflowers! Looks so pretty and perfect for fall.
Well...I am going to add these to my "to do" list! They are the perfect adornment for your table with those little white pumpkins!
Sandy I love your burlap sunflowers and baby boo white pumpkins. It's a perfect white and shabby take on fall.
Very refreshing for fall! Love the white and the sunflowers are darling.
It's just perfect Sandy. I wish we could find white pumpkins too,I'm not a lover of orange and because it's Spring here,it doesn't quite go. The shops are full of everything cheap and nasty and orange and black for Halloween,so I guess I won't be decorating for it. LOL
Such a great idea Sandy! Love it! :)
They turned out beautifully!! You are a good teacher in showing how to make them.
I too "don't do Fall", because I can't and I'm not into orangy in my home but outside it is glorious with other tones of the same family. I love your shabby fall decor, I'm doing a bit of the same. Love that centerpiece you are so talented!
Sandy, your sunflowers are gorgeous! You're so clever tho think to buy the Dollar Store ones for the pattern and centers! I love neutral Fall items and this vignette is so pretty! I love your wee white pumpkins; I have had the most difficult time finding white ones this year.
Yes, you should be pleased because it is lovely! Love those burlap flowers! Your white pumpkins look great! Love it!!!
I wanted to suggest that you can paint pumpkins. I bought some from the dollar store that I plan to paint and glitter. You can paint real pumpkins as well. My son's birthday is this month and one of our party activities will be painting pumpkins. Your home is so serene and lovely, I dream of mine feeling the same way!
You did a great job on your centerpiece, Sandy! Love your burlap flowers and how easy it was to make them.
Very pretty! I never thought to look in the dollar store for faux flowers!
I think fall is pretty, but where I live there is no fall. It's hot, so I really don't feel like putting out a hot color of pumpkins. I thought of fading a pumpkin's color by rubbing it with chalk paint or white paint, but I have no idea if it would make it rot.
of course the pumpkins should be WHITE........ just Lovley :)
and do not miss..
it is FUN :)

Wow, I love this project and all your white for fall. The burlap sunflowers are the perfect touch!
I love your neutral fall centerpiece. It is so pretty. What a clever idea about the dollar tree sunflowers. I am going to make some of these. Love your baby boo's they look so cute in your center piece. Have a great week end.
BRILLIANT idea for the sunflowers! Ohhh everything just looks dreamy.
Thank you for sharing and the tutorial. A very nice centerpiece for a home that does not lend itself to the oranges of the season.
i thought about spray painting some sunflowers, but, this is way cuter, sandy! your centerpiece is adorable!
Ok, your sunflowers are ADORABLE and how can you not love Fall....besides when you decorate, it can stay up for almost 3 months...Christmas is 6 weeks at most. I love Fall. We will convince you!!
I have a garden full of White Pumkins and this looks like a great idea.....thanks Sandy!
Love your sunflowers ! What a great idea to make a pattern from the the dollar store flower .
I love your sunflowers ! What a smart idea. I am starting to like Fall more than Spring because our Springs have been so cd and wet and windy for the last 3 years, your decorations look beautiful!! Thank you for stopping b
Your sunflowers are so unbelievably clever and cute!! LOVE this whole arrangement! :)
Great idea! Love your display!
Sandy your centerpiece is so pretty! Love this simple way to make those burlap flowers!Thank you for sharing!
Oh, I love it and the sunflowers are soooo clever! I am not much of a fall lover either!

Your sweet home is like a little piece of heaven on earth! so sweet! take care sweet Sandy!
I love these sunflowers! Your arrangement looks beautiful. Do try growing your baby boos next year! We grow them every year and they are really easy. We've had difficulty with larger pumpkins but have really good luck with the little white cuties. ~Ann
I just love your home. You inspire me!! Happy Fall!!!!!
Sandy, I am quite the opposite - fall is my favorite time of year. I am so crushing on your burlap sunflowers and how much simpler could they be... the white pumpkins are adorable... I think you hit it ... love it all Cathy
