Easy Coastal Fall Dough Bowl

I use this giant dough bowl on my dining table and switch it up for every season! I am absolutely in LOVE with how this Coastal Fall version turned out, and I’m sharing all the details!


You can see my dining room post here for more dining room inspiration, but today I’m teaching you how to re-create my coastal fall version!

Watch this video of each step, then see below for links and resources!

Coastal Dough bowl, from summer to FAll

Here’s the one I started with! I left it with just coastal and spring elements all through spring and summer and it served me well, but I was ready to kick it up a bit for fall!

I found this dough bowl on clearance after Christmas. It was a Target “Threshold” line Christmas item, but it isn’t Christmassy at all! I cut off the long handles on it and stained it darker to better suit my style!

Here’s some options for your own dough bowl!

This one below is my favorite. It is the most similar to mine and not a ridiculous price. You can find it here on amazon!

Filling up your dough bowl with fall and coastal items

I filled my dough bowl up with items I already had on hand, plus one of my signs!

Here’s a list of what I used and then I’ll share some places you can find these items!

🍁Items Used🍁

◾️Our aqua autumn sign, available in the shop (choose aqua from the drop down)
◾️Homegoods pumpkins
◾️Dried boxwood pieces from our front yard
◾️Wheat stalks (I get mine at Publix- yes, a grocery store! They have it every fall, and it’s a good quality at a great price!)
◾️Real fishing floats from a vintage shop in California
◾️Driftwood collected from various beaches
◾️Filler from potpourri like assortment with varying textures
◾️Mini foam pumpkins fro Michael’s that I painted, dry brushed and added sticks to instead of stems

If you don’t have these items on hand here’s some great resources-

Fishing floats and other filler

I’ve actually found several fake fishing floats and other filler at Kohl’s over the years and found these that I loved.

These are really great prices, and some include shells and “driftwood” like pieces!

Click on each to see!


Of course, your best bet is visiting a lake or the beach and snagging some free wood, but these are great options if you can’t get there quick enough


If you are a Coastal lover, you probably already have a collection of seashells and starfish, but if not, here’s some great options, even a pack of resin ones as an option if you’d rather them not be real!


I purchased the larger pumpkins from the Homegoods family of stores- TJmaxx, Homegoods, and Marshall’s! They’ve been a bit hard to find so scoop them up if you see them! At $4.99 they are a great deal and SO cute! I may have * a few * …ahem…ok…maybe 8…so far! I’m just LOVING them in several different places around my house!

Homegoods even featured my photo of my dough bowl on their Instagram feed! That might even be how you found me!

Anchored Soul Signs

Of course I couldn’t resist styling mine with more than one sign option.

You can find all of our fall signs here.

And our fall BEACH signs here!

Any of our 6 x 6 in or 8 x 3 in signs make a great option for dough bowls or any type of tray!

You can click on any of these photos to go straight to that sign!

I’d love to see if you decorate your own dough bowl in a coastal style or with any of our fall signs!

Thanks for following along!
