It wasn’t very long ago that my children were small. WELL, it doesn’t seem like it was very long ago. And now when I do the math-it was almost 30 years ago, that my boys made this tool box in Cub Scouts. 30 years? How did that happen? Instead of being sad about the time passing by, I thought it would be more fun to create a DIY Vintage Tool Box For Fall.
Fall will officially be here in just a few days. It is time for me to celebrate a new season filled with beautiful colors and new details.
My DIY Vintage Tool Box For Fall was fairly easy to put together.
I learned an interesting technique in floral design a few years ago. It isn’t about making everything symmetrical.My goal was to create a Fall scene. Floral arranging is about creating hills, valleys and even streams. You will see what I mean at the end.
After collecting some of my decorations, now it was time to start on my DIY Vintage Tool Box For Fall.
One of my favorite Fall decorations happens to be a Book Page Pumpkin with a Door Knob Stem. This year I added a REAL stem. Oh my-I love this look, don’t you?
Last year I painted most of my orange pumpkins white. I like more of a neutral look for Fall.
Adding the hydrangeas purchased from Tuesday Morning helped me to soften the orange,red and harsh look of the pine cones. They also add depth and a full look to the DIY Vintage Tool Box For Fall. I can never resist a cute scarecrow, can you?
It took me awhile to arrange and rearrange the picks, flowers, pine cones and pumpkins just how I wanted them. Like I mentioned before, I was still trying to create hills, valleys and mountains in the tool box.
These last two pictures give you the best view of the “scene” in my floral arrangement. You can see the the hill on the right and the mountains on the left. There is a stream of orange and red leaves. Along with berries and pussy willows. On the left are the mountains filled with hydrangeas, wheat, green leaves, yellow daisies and of course, the scare crow on top.
Can you see the scene? It does take a little imagination and an artistic eye to spot the scene.
So, after doing the math and finding out how old my tool box REALLY is…It was really worth it to create a DIY Vintage Tool Box For Fall. Now I can remember my kids in a whole new way.
