Fall Centerpiece





Here is a quick centerpiece idea for your coffee table, dining table or even the kitchen island. I picked up a bag of these mini pumpkins in white and orange while at the supermarket yesterday.


Grabbed a can of bronze spray paint and lightly sprayed the tops of my pumpkins and some fallen leaves in the backyard. (my neighbor caught me spray painting leaves last year and looked at me like I was a little nuts - so keep that in mind!)

Here you go - the finished product. Take a tray, load it up with candles ( I put one on a pedestal for a little height). Add your pumpkins, leaves, some berry stems and I also added some dried hydrangeas tucked in for a little more color.

Hope you're INSPIRED to CREATE your own. If you make one, blog about it. I would love to see your version. Send me a pic or link to your blog and I will mention it here on this post.

Also, tomorrow is Pink Friday and the category is Harvest Home. Look for the reminder tomorrow and a giveaway announcement coming soon!

Very nice! I'm hoping my local supermarket will start carrying the small pumpkins and Indian corn soon. Thanks for the project idea!
