Simple Fall Centerpiece in 5 Minutes or Less
I’ve been looking for a gorgeous fall centerpiece to use for Thanksgiving, but I haven’t found anything I like. I didn’t want to buy something and have to store it all year. I’m trying to limit the number of new things I buy and store for holidays.
As I was searching on Pinterest, I saw a cute project where they filled a glass jar with acorns and added a candle. I decided to remake it into something a bit different since I have no acorns.
I’m part of a group of bloggers that gets together once a month to recreate something we find on Pinterest to make it our own. You can find the original pin here. The original pin filled a glass vase partway with acorns and then set a votive candle in the middle of the vase.
I like the way it looks but I’d worry about the candle’s safety as it burns down. Plus, I don’t have any acorns.
What do I need to make this DIY fall centerpiece?
- One to three glass jars, Mason jars or clear flower vases
- Pinecones, acorns, popcorn, tiny rocks, plastic apples, etc.
- One to three clear glass votive holders, tea light candles, etc.
- One to three votive candles in ivory, white, cream, or fall colors
- Miscellaneous pine cones, leaves, mini pumpkins, etc.
How to make a fall centerpiece for your table
- You can use as many glass jars as you like for your centerpiece.
- Fill each one about one-third full of whatever filler you like.
- Carefully place a votive in a votive holder in the center of the vase and press down slightly to make it secure.
- Arrange things tastefully on a cutting board, tray or directly on the table.
Honestly, this fall centerpiece took me less than five minutes. I used a clear vase and two drinking glasses as the holders and a cutting board as the base.
Then I hunted through my craft box and grabbed anything that looked even remotely like fall. I moved things around a few times until I got it to look the way I wanted it to.
If you’d like to set this on your mantle or against the wall, you could place it in front of a framed print. One of these free watercolor printables for fall would be just stunning.
