DIY Fall Centerpiece Ideas
Liven up autumn tablescapes by making your own DIY fall centerpiece. You can stock up on items at your local dollar store to keep prices down.
A tiered tray will look delightful with mini pumpkins, while items such as wine bottles can be transformed into scarecrows. Make use of the beautiful autumn colors by layering up faux leaves in jewel colors and painting lanterns to match.
You can really get creative with it, and they will make great additions to your Thanksgiving table settings. Check out these ideas for inspiration.
Gourds and pumpkins are a classic for fall decorating, so why not give it a little twist by painting faux pumpkins in sage and white? Create drama by grouping different sizes in the center of your table.
Pack a punch by filling a large pumpkin with a beautiful floral display. You will need to scoop the pumpkin out first, or you could also use a faux pumpkin. Then place a vase or floral foam inside this and arrange your flowers how you would like. A typical flower to include would be the sunflower.
Jar of Popcorn Kernels
Make a simple piece by filling a jar with popcorn kernels, and then add a faux flower. These would make ideal decorations to place around your home, such as for a fall baby shower, for example.
Wood Effect Pumpkin
Make a wood effect pumpkin using wood grain charger plates from the dollar store. Hot glue three together to recreate this idea, then adorn it with items including sequins, ribbons, and anything else you would like.
Dollar Store Track Lantern
Make this lantern using dollar store tracks. Begin by bending the race track to form the lantern arch. You can then place this arch in the square box sign. Paint it white and hot glue rope to each track. You can then fill it with faux pumpkins and foliage.
