Fall Mums in Olive Buckets | Easy, DIY way to add a touch of vintage charm to your Fall porch decor. Includes photos on how to assemble. There’s a lot going on today and I have to admit it’s all put a spring in my step! I love being busy because it makes the days much more enjoyable and I tend to actually get more done. Seems when I have time on my hands I just sit around and waste it. Anyway, I’ve got the second installment of my Fall front porch. I already shared my DIY Fall Grapevine Wreath. Today I’m here with easy Fall Mums in Olive Buckets.

What you need: Olive bucket (or other container,) pot for inside, grapevine wreath, greenery, bunches of berries, mum in a pot.

I used 8 inch terra cotta pots I had in the garage. This will act as a riser to lift the mum over the edge of the olive bucket. Place a gravevine wreath just inside the rim of the olive bucket. I totally lucked out with the size of my wreaths. I used 15 inch wreaths and they fit perfectly inside the olive buckets. It would be just fine for the wreath to sit on top of your container too. It doesn’t have to fit inside.

It would work with any sort of large pot. I think it would look amazing with terra cotta pots because they are the perfect Fall color and are very budget-friendly.

    Very pretty, as usual, Ann. You take the everyday and make it awesome!

  6. Great idea, Anne! I put your idea to work and made two pots! Since I don’t have the lovely olive buckets, I used what pots I already had. And you inspired me to make my own grapevine wreaths from the many wild grape vines that grow in my backyard. Love the look!!!

    Wow… those olive buckets are amazing Ann. I love how you have dressed then up for the season with the mums, The wreaths are a genius idea too and I look forward to trying that myself.

    Ann these olive baskets are wonderfull! What a great way to welcome guests and decorate for Fall.

  11. I loved your idea of using the olive buckets plus using the wreaths as fillers. I only have one olive bucket…so I used my plastic urn type planters from summer and sprayed them bronze….used two wreaths, beautiful yellow mums..and this DIY turned out beautiful!

  12. Ann, the mums in the olive buckets are beautiful! I’ve never thought of adding the “embellishments” to them….definitely going to do that to dress them up a bit more! Your porch is gorgeous!

  20. laura@duke manor farm says:

    never would have thought to put the grapevine inside the bucket to cover the gap. thanks for the tip!

  21. Yvonne @ StoneGable says:

    Ann, you have the best ideas my friend!!! LOVE putting the grapevine wreath on top of the olive basket to fill in the gap! Sharing an pinning!

  22. Hi Ann,

    On several occasions I have needed a little extra something to dress up a plant or pot, but never thought to use a grapevine wreath. Very nice touch. Your porch looks great. Love the orange & blue.

  23. I love this idea with the berries. I have to find some olive buckets…thanks for the links!

    Happy fall (or pre-fall)!

    I agree that the terra cotta pots would also be a great way to display the mums, love the grapevine wreath idea that really adds that extra touch.
    Going shopping for some more mums was my main objective today, I love the burnt burgundy color but we were put under evacuation advisory because of the Butte Fire so packing to leave became #1 priority.

  25. Liz @ Infuse With Liz says:

    Love the look. The grape vine wreaths are a great addition. Love the olive buckets. This looks great with the coloring of your door and home.

  26. Love the orange mums with your blue front door, it looks fantastic. i like the way you dressed them up & as usual your photography is beautiful! Thank you so much for getting your blog back for me a couple of weeks ago, I am glad to be back and enjoying it!

  27. Oh they look so beautiful Ann!! Your front porch has always been one of my most favorite in blogland and how you’ve dressed it up for fall does not disappoint. So fun to be part of this event with you my friend!

  28. Wow that looks fantastic Ann and I wouldn’t have noticed the grapevine wreath until you pointed it out….brilliant idea by the way. Love the orange mums against the blue door.

  29. I so love olive baskets. It brings me back to the years of ’76-79. My in laws owned a country store in the middle of nowhere where an oil company also owned huge farming as well as huge family farms around. Crops were mostly cotton but the huge oil company had a lot of olives. The crews came from an hour away so they often stopped to get food for their drive home. Picking was done by hand then. Now I know they used buckets but I don’t know if they looked like this. But look at an olive. Think how quick and nimble their fingers flew amongst the branches as they teetered on ladders to fill just one of those baskets. They had to fill many. Their contractor was paid and then paid them by how many buckets they’d picked. It was hot. Now it’s all done by machine. I noticed the oranges, lemons and olives are replaced by pistachios. They used to be handpicked but now are oh so carefully picked by an engineered machinery to do just that. So I look at the olive buckets and think back on those crews that came from the area where most olives were grown. I finally got faux this year and I certainly am glad I read your post how to utilize them for mums!! Thank you!!! This same time period a local farmer was showing men from Israel our farming methods for the Southern San Joaquin Valley is quite similar to Israel’s soil and climate. Just wish we’d stayed up with them and had desalination plants in place for drought years.

  30. Thank you Ann for mentioning where your doormat was purchased. Love it, and on my way to my Lowe’s in Wadsworth. Leaving in a month for Italy (Bucket List wish.)

    I love the olive bucket/mum combo. Your entry is so pretty! I wasn’t going to put out mums this year, but I might seriously steal your idea. Love it, Ann!

  35. Love your olive buckets filled with beautiful mums. The pots inside as risers is a great idea.

  36. Connie Lahna says:

    I have seven built-in planter boxes on my front deck. I will definitely use the wreath and mum idea in them for a fresh new look to my deck. Thank you.

  37. Such an easy yet great way to show off the fall colors… Love it! Thanks for the giveaway chance.

  41. Dorene @ Seasonal Chapters says:

    I was disappointed when I missed out on these olive buckets when they were offered at Decor Steals, and now seeing how beautifully you styled them makes me even more sad that I missed the deal. You have created a welcoming entrance to your home Ann. Your posts always make me smile.

    1. Ann Drake says:

      Hi Dorene! Did you check out the links I included to other olive buckets? Some are a bit pricey but others are not. Take a look!

  42. Such a cute idea! Thanks for the how to. Yours look great,
