CREATE A LATE FALL CENTERPIECE USING THINGS FROM NATURE. WHEN YOU’VE TAKEN DOWN THE PUMPKINS FROM HALLOWEEN BUT NEED A TOUCH OF FALL IN THE HOUSE BEFORE IT’S TIME TO TRANSITION TO CHRISTMAS DECOR, THIS IS SOMETHING SIMPLE TO PUT TOGETHER IN UNDER 5 MINUTES.
It seems like forever since I’ve shared the inside of our home with you. With all the outdoor construction stuff going on photographing the inside has been overlooked, even though I have had it decorate for fall for quite some time.
Now that the Halloween things are gone I wanted to share with you a simple rustic coffee table centerpiece with things found in nature. It’s the perfect amount of fall on a platter and will work through Thanksgiving, where the day after will be filled with Christmas decorating.
I purchased the wooden tray at our hospice store for $1 a few years back. I had no idea what I’d do with it but it sure seems to show up in my decor over and over again always being used in a different way, so for a buck it was a fantastic buy.
Next I layers faux garland on the tray, two birch wood stumps that I cut with my miter saw, deer antlers from my boys deer kills, pinecones from around our property, a copper acorn from the clearance rack at Hobby Lobby two years ago, and a couple of candles.
It took me less than 5 minutes to put together and I think it works quite nicely with the pillow choice on the sofa right now. My decor has evolved over the years and natural and simple seem to be what I like best and by the way it’s easy too.
