Hey ya’ll! Today I’m sharing my dining table centerpiece that I created on the cheap cheap cheap! Adding seasonal touches to your home does not have to cost a lot of money!
I decided to stay with the same neutral theme I chose for my New Fall wreath:
Are you ready to see what this centerpiece was made of?
Yup. It’s true! Perty huh?
The tiled tray and the wooden bowl-on-a-stand were thrift store finds that cost me less than $5 for both. I removed the tiles and painted the tray and the odd bowl with Annie Sloan’s Old White and Pure White mixed that I had left over from my headboard turned coat organizer. Gave them a coat of clear wax and they were set. I attached the bowl like a pedestal using E6000 glue.
They were perfect as a base for this centerpiece.
This gorgeous pumpkin was first on the pumpkin hit list:
The colors were just awful. I found it at a yard sale last year with two others that were much prettier for a quarter a piece. I decided to Mod Podge this one:
The paper was from a paper stack I already had. (So really it was free.)
This was one of the other pumpkins I found at that yard sale for a quarter. I spray painted and added glitter to it last year:
But this year I decided it needed a little texture:
So much better, right?
These little pumpkin wanna bes came from various bags of pumpkins I purchased over the years. There’s always a few odd balls…
(You already saw the big daddy get a decoupage makeover) I painted two of them in Rustoleum’s Eden…
And the last little guy just got a coat of Rustoleum Heirloom White. I painted the stems in brown acrylic craft paint I found in my stash.
The only pumpkins I purchased this year were the larger green pumpkin (Found at Michaels on sale and with an extra 20%off coupon for about $8.) and the small ivory pumpkin on top. (Also from Michaels on sale for $2.)
The tall vine pumpkin was a Walmart clearance special a couple of years ago. I removed the orange arrangement that was on top. I think it was around $3.
The greenery and berries were left over from my new Fall Wreath.
The little owl was a church flea market find for 50¢.
I’m loving the green in place of the oranges and yellows on my dining table this year…
You can see my hydrangeas in the background are still giving me beautiful blooms. If yours look sad and done for, go look more closely. Turn them over. The undersides are probably still beautiful. I was able to cut enough to fill three decent sized vases and this little sugar bowl:
It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to dress your home for the season. Granted I did have a few of these things on hand, but I found them all for cheap! I think this whole centerpiece was around $25 if you include the Stone spray paint I had to buy.
What about you? Are you more traditional when it comes to Fall or are you loving the neutrals like I am?
If you like what you see, there are several ways to follow along!
I love to share at some of these great parties:
