Easy Fall Centerpiece

by Dinah Wulf

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
  • newspaper
  • greenery
  • 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.
