A Fall centerpiece

DSCN5875

As much as I liked the centerpiece on my coffee table, it really needed a Fall makeover.

My new centerpiece took me less than 10 minutes to put together and was free!

(I only used stuff I had laying around the house)

To create this super cute centerpiece, I took the tray from the last centerpiece, set it on top of a placemat I already had, and added some fake leaves.

Then I added two dollar store glass vases and a few fake plastic acorns and apples from the Dollar Spot at Target.

You can see that I was playing around with which size candle to use.

I decided I wanted to have the little ones because I thought they were cuter, but they needed something under them to raise them up.

So I went to my pantry…

And came up with this:

I also wanted the candles to have something cute on them so I just took some hemp and leaves and tied them to the side of each candle.

Testing it out…

I love it. I can proceed now! Yay!

A lot of my crafts are trial and error. I just play around with different elements until I get a look I like.

Finally, I just added the glass jars back on the tray and I was done!

One thing to point out if you make your own display is to make the levels of the lentils at different heights. It gives it more depth.

I am very pleased with how this display turned out.

And seriously, it was really easy to throw together!

I have no idea what is going on with my newel and large decor ball in the background. Ha! Kids! I didn’t even notice until after I took the pictures. Silly kids. (But I did paint the newel green. It’s slowly coming along…)

Now I’m just one step closer to having a Fall house!

  19. I love your centerpiece, all of of your fall projects!

  20. Beautiful centerpiece [the old one was too]. The lentils are a great idea, and I like how it’s ‘compact’, everything on a tray. Thanks for the inspiration, I’m going to try out something similar as soon as I find myself a nice tray for it.

  21. I love your centerpiece. I was feeling stuck and needed some ideas on dressing up our living room for fall and decided to go with yours:) Coming through from Thrifty Decor Chick..

  22. Those lentils are fascinating! Beautiful centerpiece!

  23. love it! you know i’ve been looking for a craft to do with coffee beans since i got several bags for free and since we don’t drink it i didn’t know what to do with them. i’m gonna try this, it looks great!

  24. I never thought of using lentils as vase filler. Genius! So inexpensive and they look like cute little pebbles.

  25. This is so pretty. I would never have thought about the lentils and they are just perfect!

  26. I ♥ this centerpiece! I found it via pinterest, and I think it’s awesome that you used lentils in the glass with the candles. What a great inexpensive idea! I featured it over on my blog today.
