Simple DIY Fall Centerpieces

When this weather of ours finally cools off I will start bringing down the fall and Halloween decor. Usually Halloween comes out around October 1st and then transitions into Fall for Thanksgiving.

I have been decorating pretty much the same since we moved into our home 7 years ago so I am in need of some new fall decor inspiration. I thought I share some easy Fall Centerpieces and Mantels I found searching the web and Pinterest.

Another easy one although I would not use multiple candles just one thick one probably. Also add to bigger vases around the house.

Have the kid pick up stick in your yard to make this simple vase.  This one is filled with artifical flower but if you a glass vase inside you can easily fill with fresh flowers.

Wrap an inexpensive vase with twigs and fill with flowers that match your decor for a simple Fall centerpiece this year.. Super simple yet elegant.  This idea reminds me of our Pencil Vase we make for teachers.

Instead of sticks buy inexpensive Indian Corn and make a similiar vase. Here is the same idea but using Indian Corn.



I have seen people use pumpkins as vases but love love the gourd twist. Also love the bright colored flowers on this fall centerpiece.

We used inexpensive fake plastic trick or treat pumpkins for front door flower planters but you can also use them indoors if you put a plate underneath them to collect water.

Love the girls from Shanty 2 Chic, they made these from 2×4’s. You might be able to use an old drawer and cut it down too? Although they just use glue in their instructions.

This next one uses a small hay bale you can find at craft stores as it’s base. Just be sure to put a cloth on the bottom so it doesn’t scratch your table.
