DIY Fall Centerpiece

Fall is finally upon us and I was so excited to see Fall decor popping up at my favourite stores. DIYing decor is one of my past times but something about making seasonal decor is extra special.

I found an adorable pumpkin patch tin at Michaels a couple of months ago for $12.99 on sale for 50% off. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it, but after scoping out the Fall aisle at the Dollarama  I began to envision a cool toned pumpkin themed centerpiece. As much as I love Fall, I sometimes feel overwhelmed by all of the warm toned oranges, yellows and reds that are synonymous with the season. Michaels has beautiful pumpkins in many colours, but I decided to keep this project on a budget and create something from pumpkins I found at the dollar store. 

All of these pumpkins were painted white with dark green stems.

I used paint that I already had at home and painted all of the pumpkins white with dark green stems. I also bought a second package of small pumpkins and pinecones at the dollar store in a gold-green colour. 

I also bought a bundle of sparkly Fall berries/greenery to use in this piece, and a block of floral foam to use in the bottom of the tin. 

I used a hot glue gun to attach coffee stir sticks to the pumpkins so I could arrange them in the floral foam. This allowed some of the smaller pumpkins to sit up higher in the arrangement and helped create depth.

The glass candleholders pictured were on Summer clearance from Walmart for around $3 each.

This was such a fun and easy project to do because you can arrange the items of your choice in any way you like, and add whatever seasonal items you want. For a Halloween theme you could add little fabric ghosts or bats. 

This project ended up costing me around $12 total.

Have you created any Fall or Halloween decor yet this season? Do you like to DIY or prefer to buy already made pieces? Comment below!
