I love having centerpieces on my table. You can do it very inexpensively instead of paying outrageous prices but still go for the same look. Go to your yard, park, or along the side of the road, which is where I start. Look for pine cones. I love them and they are free.
Often decorating you home for the holidays or for the season, is just a pantry and walk in nature away. Using enclosed glass containers you can create this simple vignette. Use edibles such as grains, dried beans, and fruit, plus naturals including pine cones, greenery, and herbs (rosemary).
This is what I did using some of my remaining flowers from my cornucopia project, I still have some left over!
Fall is coming and pumpkins are everywhere. These mini pumpkin planters are the perfect way to bring some color to your holiday table setting.
This darling natural centerpiece is quick and easy to make for your lovely celebrations. It would be fabulous also for a group activity that is thrifty but lovely.
If you wish to use pine cones, seed pods, and the like in your fall arrangements, spread them on a foil covered cookie sheet and put them in the oven to about at hour at 200 degrees F. That will kill any critters that might be hiding inside.
Here is a simple and colorful way to recycle pine cones into an autumn centerpiece.
I bought a styrofoam pumpkin; the pretty orange ones that look real. I cut off the top, and put in some pretty fall sprigs that I found on sale. I just laid them in, so next year I can change the look if I want.
Although the outdoor flowers are dying, you can still use lots of garden items for decoration, inside and out! I like to make fall and winter arrangements in antique milk jugs that I got from auctions of relatives. In one, I have just filled with corkscrew willow.
Updated with photos! Start by carving the pumpkin designs. Glue it to the base. Glue the candle jar on top, first cut off the stem, so the jar will sit flat!
Carve a small hole, one inch deep, in miniature pumpkins for use as taper candle holders.
Mums can be very easy to work with, and fall pumpkins make fun accessories for mums. The easiest thing to do is to create an arrangement of fresh flowers, place them in a jar of water, and place this jar inside the pumpkin...
A mini-pumpkin at each place, with a place card against it makes a festive table setting.
For an easy woodsy centerpiece for your table all you need to do is raid your wood pile or go to the woods and find a cool branch. Using a hole saw, cut a hole the size of a tea candle in the side of your branch.
