Happy Fall...

Hopefully you found me off of Savvy Southern Style's Wow us Wednesday!  http://savvysouthernstyle.blogspot.com/   
I am so excited that it is finally autumn weather!  This is my favorite time of year in Tennessee, when the leaves are finally starting to change, Starbucks brings back their amazing Pumpkin lattes, and my friend Susanna surprise us with delicious pumpkin muffins!  I of course wanted to take this seasonal opportunity to chalkboard yet another thing in my life and decorate for fall. 
I give you: a chalkboard flower pot.

Now normally the blogger would suggest putting a plant in this pot with a label and called it a day.  Not me.  I kill green things.  Not intentionally, it just happens to the best of us.  So I used my flowerpots as a decorative way to display pine cones, mini pumpkins, and my personal fav- candy corn.  I guess you can put a flower in yours if you want to be a show-off.

 I added a brown paper ribbon around the top, but any color ribbon or twine would work!

 You could even make these Halloween themed with larger pots to hold candy for trick or treaters!  BOO!

 If you are feeling extra creative, you can spray paint your pine cones!  I chose to make mine pink, orange, white and blue.  But to keep with the fall theme you can make yours orange yellow and white.

The great thing about these pots now being chalkboards is that you can change them for every season! 


  1. Look at you...all festive!! What a great idea! The cand corn one is my fav! Too cute!
