Using Natural Elements to Decorate for Fall

Decorating with natural elements offers a relaxing ambience. Using natural elements, such as a custom wood display, in interior design allows for versatility as the seasons change. Today we will discuss using natural elements to decorate for fall.


A wood display pedestal or case is a great way to feature organic material or crafts made with natural elements. Wood is a nice hardy material that comes in an array of shades. Walnut is a darker wood; while, oak is an option if a lighter look is desired. Of course, there are many other woods to choose from like bamboo, maple, mahogany, etc.

Choosing a style is important too. Our custom wood displays come in different shapes and designs to suit your personal style. If you want to modify a display you see, add your personal touch by designing your own custom wood display. Also, consider a lighted pedestal to add warmth and extra light during the cooler months.

Items that can be displayed on a wood display pedestal or in a case are things like acorns, pine cones, branches, leaves, gourds, and other organic materials. An earthy wooden plaque is easily made with a slice of wood and some acorns arranged in a flower pattern. Mix silver glitter with silver paint and coat acorn caps or the acorn body for a sophisticated natural display. Pressed leaves in branch frames are a quick, artful craft. Hang pine cones from twigs clipped from the yard for a bare winter look. Nature display jars are fun. Just fill a decorative jar with your favorite fall items. Faux nests filled with painted acorns and mini pine cones are a lovely accent as well.

Those are just a few ideas to get your creative juices flowing. Wood is a great material to use for all of the seasons. We also offer acrylic pedestals that would accentuate spring and summer elements such as shells, sand, water, rocks etc.
