I don’t usually have a ton of Fall decorations at my house. I always jump from Halloween to Christmas. I have no idea what happens in between! I have seen so many inspiring ideas out there too. I thought I’d better get a move on it. So, this year I decided to take on some simple decorations. I’m hoping to have people over for Thanksgiving this year, AKA good excuse to make the house look pretty. I like this centerpiece idea is because it’s inexpensive, easy, and requires no storage because it’s made from real pumpkins and greenery from my back yard. I already have too many boxes of Halloween and Christmas in my garage…hmmm…maybe that’s why I don’t decorate for Fall! Here is how I made my Easy Fall Centerpiece.
For this project you will need:
- small pumpkins
- spray paint
- recycled jars
- vintage tool box or other container
- tea lights
I bought a bag of small pumpkins at the grocery store. These are typically about $5.00 or less (at least around here).
I spray painted them with metallic silver spray paint in a well-ventilated area.
Next I cut some greenery from my back yard.
I used a vintage toolbox I bought from one of my flea market trips months ago. I filled it with the greenery and recycled mason jars.
Finally, I added the spray painted pumpkins and tea lights.
That’s it! Easy peasey!! Here are some after pictures.
