Today, I'm showing you how I created some of the décor which was featured in my Summer home tour. Summer decorating doesn't have to break the bank or be a chore.


Here's how to make a pretty coastal table display using a wooden bowl.


This is an abbreviated tutorial. You can find the detailed tutorial including more photos by clicking the link to the full blog post here: 'Easy ways to decorate your home for Summer' or at the bottom of this Hometalk post. Thanks for understanding!

WOODEN BOWL DECORATING SUPPLIES


If you'd like to decorate your home for summer with this simple display you will need the following items:


  • Wooden bowl (or alternative)
  • Small potted plant (I used Kalanchoe)
  • Small plant pot or candle holder
  • Summer ornament
  • Dried green moss
  • Bunny tail (Dried grass)
  • Seashells
  • Small stick or kebab skewer
  • LED mini string lights (Optional)
  • 3 Large Feathers


Arrange the potted plant and wooden ornament in the bowl how you like them.


Fill in with dried moss.

Place some seashells on top of the moss around the display.


Push some of the Bunny Tail Grass into the earth in the plant pot.

Slide a large seashell or a large snail shell onto the wooden stick or kebab stick and push that into the earth too.

Push some of the Bunny Tail Grass into the earth in the plant pot.

Slide a large seashell or a large snail shell onto the wooden stick or kebab stick and push that into the earth too.


Arrange the feathers at the back of the plant pot.

To add a little sparkle, I placed some string lights at the back of my display – feel free to do that too if you like. The string lights will brighten up a dark room that doesn't get much sun.

This wooden bowl décor is one of the simplest ways to decorate your home for summer.
