I love a good dining table centerpiece….they can really make a table shine! But I’m also pretty busy (like I know most of us are) so I don’t always change my table decor for every holiday/season…*gasp!* 😉 And while I love Halloween- I don’t really decorate the inside of my home for it, so I wanted to create a centerpiece that I could leave up from now until it’s time to get out the Christmas decor. I also didn’t want to spend a lot….which can be a tall order when you’re talking craft stores, DIY and me. I have a crafting problem, but admitting it is the first step, right?!?
Anyways, if any of you have a Michael’s close to you- all their fall floral stems were 60% off. So I got these lovely large hydrangea flowers for only $2.25 each!!! Happy dance! The lamb’s ear floral I got at JoAnns (with a coupon), and I already had the milk can, burlap and pumpkins. So over all, a fairly quick and inexpensive project.
8 Hydrangea floral stems total (3 lace/5 other) – Michael’s
2 lambs ear floral stems – JoAnns
Galvanized metal milk can – Hobby Lobby
Burlap runner & white pumpkins – optional
Aren’t these hydrangea with lace so pretty!?! I bought 3 stems of these to add to the centerpiece, because I liked the different texture the lace added.
Trim the stems to fit in milk can.
Arrange floral stems in milk can. Add a few of the lambs ear greenery to fill in any bare spots and add some more texture. And voila! You’re all done 🙂
I added a small burlap 6 inch runner underneath, along with a few white pumpkins and some more lamb’s ear leaves, to dress up the table.
I also like it without the pumpkins…so I have options if I want to change it up. I’m really happy with how it turned out, and I love that my dining room looks all put together for fall now.
How do you like to decorate your table for fall???
