I was looking to update some of my home décor for the new fall season, and a gold fall-inspired centerpiece seemed like a perfect way to do this. This DIY fall centerpiece is an easy table décor idea for Thanksgiving, or just a way to liven up your table for fall. If you’re looking for easy Thanksgiving table centerpiece ideas, here’s how I put this easy centerpiece together.
Supplies needed for this easy Thanksgiving centerpiece idea:
- A large pillar vase
- Three small pillar vases
- Small pumpkins – craft or real (enough to fill the large vase)
- Rubber bands
- Metallic gold spray paint
- Burlap fabric
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- A few hydrangea flowers (real or fake)
How to make this easy DIY fall centerpiece:
I was inspired by this pin I saw on Pinterest of metallic painted mason jars from The Country Chic Cottage, as well as an image of a Home Goods centerpiece posted on @ohsoglamblog’s Instagram. Per the tutorial in The Country Chic Cottage, I wrapped rubber bands around the small vases (as you can see in the photo above, I did some vertically and some horizontally).
Then, I applied a few coasts of Krylon metallic gold spray paint to the small vases (with the rubber bands on) and the small pumpkins. You can use pumpkins that are already gold for this centerpiece too if you want a shortcut! I do love a good shortcut.
After the paint thoroughly dried (I waited 24 hours), I carefully removed the rubber bands to reveal a really cool pattern.
Using a hot glue gun to secure it, I wrapped some thin strips of burlap around the tops of the small vases and a thicker strip around the top of the large vase.
I filled the large pillar vase with small gold pumpkins (use the ones you spray painted, or gold glitter pumpkins from the craft store), then put candles inside the smaller vases. When lit, the light from the candle glows through the pattern on the spray painted vases in a really pretty way. An especially nice touch would be to use fall pumpkin, cinnamon or apple scented candles to add to the seasonal ambiance!
To top it all off I added four hydrangea flowers (I used fakes from Michaels) to the vase. I then surrounded the vases with the a few other small decorative pumpkins.
Overall this was pretty quick and easy DIY! Enjoy, and be sure to pin this one for later.
