How to Make a Fall Centerpiece for Your Holiday Table

In this how to video I’m sharing how to use a floral bouquet that you bought at your craft store and arrange the flowers into a floral arrangement.

Supplies:

How to Make a Fall Floral Arrangement

  • Decide on what kind of container you want to use.
  • Cut your floral foam to fit snugly in your container. Use moss to cover your the top of the foam and the greening pins to adhere it. I use the pins instead of gluing the moss down because the glue will make it harder to insert the floral stems.
  • Cut apart the floral bouquet and attach floral pics.
  • I start with the largest blossoms and start with my focal flower. Place the stems at different heights. Then add the medium size flowers and then you smallest flowers. Finish by filling in with greenery and continue until you are happy with the look!
  • Make a small 5 loop bow and insert it where it will look best. I like to tuck them in on the side, but you can place it in the front.

You now have complete a floral arrangement for your table. Plus you can easily adapt this same technique for any holiday!

PAINTED PUMPKIN TUTORIAL

Painted PumpkinsI love decorating for Fall and the holiday’s with colors that are similar to the colors in my home. I had this in mind for my mother’s home which is where I currently reside.

painted pumkinsSpread out newspaper over your work area. On the small pumpkins I carefully pulled out the stems to replace with drawer pulls. If you want to do something similar for the larger pumpkins I would use old door knobs. I gave each pumpkin two coats of paint. You can do more coats if needed.

When they were fully dried spray the clear acrylic in small areas and lightly sprinkled glitter in the areas you want it. It dries quickly. When you have finished with the glitter spray the whole thing with the acrylic sealer. When that is dry take your drawer pull and remove the washer and nut screw. Push it into the pumpkin to make the whole. Remove and add the glue down the stem and right under the pull itself. Insert and let dry.

Arrange however you like, on a table or the fireplace mantel. You get lots of compliments!
