It’s Fall Yall! As you fill the the shorter days with apple picking and pumpkin patching/spicing take a look at this fall centerpiece. This simple centerpiece is perfect for fall gatherings, like Thanksgiving. You can also use different colors for any event really. Create an elegant look with monotone gold leaves and branches for weddings, use pastels for a baby shower.
The best part about this DIY is that it it basically free!
Here is what you need
- Vase of your choice
- Glass Vase Filler Stones
- Dried leaves with branches. You can literally pick some off a tree and let it dry for about a week. You can buy faux foliage.
- Dried flowers I like dried baby’s breath
- Gold Spray Paint
- A toilet paper tube
- Battery operated string lights
First you want to paint your leaves/branches with gold spray paint. It doesn’t have to be fully gold but most of it should be painted. Let dry. PRO TIP: Paint in thin layers to prevent overpainting and stickiness.
Next, you want to begin to fill the bottom of the vase with glass stone filler. Place the tube right in the middle of the vase and fill the along the sides.
Also start tucking and wrapping the sting lights into the stones.
Now that the vase is half full arrange your foliage how you desire in the tube. Keeping it in the tube makes it easier to manipulate.
As you fill the rest of the vase with stones keep wrapping the string lights.
When you get to the end of the string light tuck the battery pack into the tube and cover with more filler.
Now you are done! To complete this look I spray painted some acorns and pine cones. Also I placed my vase on my favorite holiday craft book and cookbook!
